Base lies on back, straight legs lifted vertically and arms bent with backs of hands flat on floor near ears. (Figure 6A)
Top holds baseís feet for balance and stands with left foot in baseís left hand and right foot in baseís right hand. Arches of topís feet should be in baseís hands, with heels extending between baseís thumbs and index fingers. (Figure 6B)
Top presses down on baseís feet with as much force as possible and jumps vertically upwards. (Topís hips should move vertically above his/her feet; there should be no forward lunge toward baseís feet.) Simultaneously with topís jump, base extends arms to straight position. (Figure 6C)
Top releases baseís feet, one at a time, and stands vertically, with arms extended straight out to sides. (Figures 6D & 6E)
Stunt ends with top grasping baseís feet and base lowering top to beginning position.
Spotting: Spotter stands on topís side and holds upper arm of top with two hands.
1) Base can begin with bent arms, elbows at sides and palms open upwards. Top grasps baseís feet for balance and steps up into baseís hands.
2) After top reaches final position, base can lower his/her legs to mat.
3) Stunt can continue by base bringing his/her feet between topís legs; top sits on feet, simultaneously bringing his/her knees together. (Sit on feet)
4) Stunt can end with top grasping baseís feet; base separates legs, and top swings through baseís legs to a stand on mat.
Lead-up: Top can practice pressing down on baseís feet and jumping vertically upwards by holding baseís feet, straddling baseís body, and jumping upwards as high as possible and returning to straddle stand outside baseís body. Top should jump straight up while pushing down on feet as hard as possible. (During the performance of the stunt, this will make it possible for the base to straighten arms with the least possible resistance.)
Note: If base is strong enough to press top into straight arm position, the jump can be omitted.
