This blog is about how to teach the Bully Kutta to jump for agility. We are often asked, “What number of jumps is best to begin with?” You can never have too many single jumps to learn agility. One suitable starting point is 4 jumps. This is the absolute minimum number of jumps that we suggest.
How to Teach the Bully Kutta jumping: Begin with 4
You can teach a Bully Kutta a variety of skills, drills, and exercises with 4 jumps. Four jumps will allow you to work on a short jump chute or jump grid. You can position a “box” with your jumps and work on handling, collection, and 270 degree jumps. You can teach your Bully Kutta jumping left and right. You can be out of the box and send your Bully Kutta or you can handle from the inside of the box. Your jumps can be staged in a lateral line, so you could practice serpentines and threadles.
Teach Your Bully Kutta 8 Jumps
Take the next logical step and practice 8 jumps. Now you can setup 2 boxes with 1 starter jump. Now you’ve multiplied your drills that you can practice with your Bully Kutta. Your jump grids can be of typical size and number of jumps. You can even position your jumps in a circle with the jump bars perpendicular to the circle or on the perimeter of the circle. This pattern also enables you to develop a variety of drills.
Teach a Bully Kutta Double and Triple Jumps
Your next step is a double jump and a triple jump. You could chain two or three solo jumps together to make your expanded jump, but having double and triple jumps in your course work is really helpful to practice. We’ve seen several Bully Kuttas run a flawless course and the last obstacle is a triple and the Bully Kutta is not prepared for it, and bang, down goes the bar.Don’t forget to check out these other articles about Bully Kuttas.
