Shoulder Sit

 

 

 

 

 Flier – start on your toes and lean slightly back into the guy.  On his count dip and jump (stay on your toes and do not go flat footed).   Keep a firm hold of the base’s wrists and slightly split your legs for the base’s head to come underneath.  As you land, wrap your legs to the mid-section of the bases’ back. For a REAR dismount: grab a thumb to thumb grip with the base on the inside of your thighs. On count wait for the dip and push straight down through your bases shoulders and absorb the landing for the finish.  For a FRONT dismount: grab a thumb to thumb grip with the base on the outside of your thighs.  Begin to pike your legs.  On count wait for the dip and push straight down through your bases shoulders. Then absorb the landing and finish.

 

Base - stand behind the flier with feet just slightly beyond shoulder width apart.  On count follow the flier while she jumps (this way you both have good timing).  Right before the flier leaves the ground, base grab a little firmer and lift flier gently to your shoulders (DO NOT drop her on your shoulders – Be GENTLE!).  As she lands you want to let go of her waist and wrap your hands around her thighs.  For a REAR dismount: grab a thumb to thumb grip with the flier on the inside of her thighs. ON count, dip and control flier behind you to the ground.  For a FRONT dismount:  grab a thumb to thumb grip with the flier on the outside of her thighs. ON count, dip and push through her arms.  Make sure you control her to the ground right in front of you and finish (do not throw her out or will have NO control and she may get hurt).
