I can't find all the info online because it's such a niche specialty!
I think in total it's like 3m from the ground(?) For international.
For our local ones, i think it's 2m80.
For us in class now, it's just getting the technique. Would love to try a tournament one day though!
It was a lot of fun!

No problem :)
I've never experienced it obviously but it certainly does sound like a full time job!
I guess it is something you just kind of have to 'do' at this point. Doesn't make it any easier though, I'm sure!

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:13 PM

It's no more than any of you guys have to manage! We all have our struggles. I salute you all.

one_step_closer 11-05-2023 08:15 PM

GROUP HUG! Or do we not like hugs?

tamobhuuta 11-05-2023 08:16 PM

*flys into the hug*

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:20 PM

3 metres? Let me get this straight - a human has the ability to jump and kick with their foot reaching a height of 3 metres above the ground? That does not sound possible.

It is something you have to 'do', but I honestly don't remember any differently, so even with the way managing it has changed over the years, it really is just what it is. But it is definitely easier/possible to ignore it at times.

one_step_closer 11-05-2023 08:20 PM

Woah, Tamo. Nearly knocked me over!

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:20 PM

*GROUP HUG*

And I don't like hugs generally but I will make the exception for you special people. <3 <3 <3

one_step_closer 11-05-2023 08:22 PM

Lots of chronic things are easier to ignore at times, I hear you NP. I hope you look after yourself as much as possible though.

one_step_closer 11-05-2023 08:24 PM

Taekwondo people have extendable legs, you just press a button.

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:24 PM

I can't promise that but I'm still here ;-)

Like Inspector Gadget?

Go go gadget legs?

one_step_closer 11-05-2023 08:25 PM

Yeah. They have ALL the gadgets.

Do do do do do Inspector Gadget.

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:26 PM

AHH, another earworm theme tune!!

one_step_closer 11-05-2023 08:27 PM

You can't complain, it was you who mentioned Inspector Gadget.

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:28 PM

I'm not complaining! =D

I'm not listening to it on youtube now and singing along...!

Cacoethes 11-05-2023 08:38 PM

I'm pretty sure that's what he said
He is over 6ft, standing on a stage and he held is hand out to only just below HIS head height, from the ground, not the stage.
Because you're leaping with one leg, you have to take a little run up.
I believe the run ups are longer in actual tournaments. We just kinda stepped back a little.
I tried to find a video of the actual kick but there aren't any! Just normal kicks (one of which gets up to 2.8metres. But it wasn't the same kick.

Wooo I'm always up for a hug!

I definitely find epilepsy easier to ignore sometimes!
A lot of 'nah, I'll be fine'

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:38 PM

Guys, time for some serious stuff:

I would like to make an announcement.
















I am publicly declaring that Jenna and I are officially friends.

Cacoethes 11-05-2023 08:40 PM

Ahahaha!
She did say it was a personal mission of hers :tongue2:

Are we friends np??

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:41 PM

No.

>.>

Pi.R^2 11-05-2023 08:42 PM

RIGHT.
Firstly serious stuff goes in the other thread, we all know that now people.
Secondly, THE HELL is with that editing reason??? Are you saying that I badgered you into being friends or into confirming our friendship status??
Thirdly, just you wait until I have some time to respond to your post report lol, I’m planning a savage PM.

Oh my god Beckie shut up, she doesn’t need to know I told you I wanted to make friends, she’ll think I’m weird!!!!

Fine, I'l post it over there too if you like but I'm sure it will be deleted (by you!)

Editing reason is perfectly valid. I felt like you were angling for an answer today but didn't want to ask.

WHICH POST REPORT?

Weird attracts weird. What can I say.

Cacoethes 11-05-2023 08:48 PM

I apologise for nothing! :-D

Wooo!
Would be a bit awkward if not because i certainly consider you a friend!

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:49 PM

Yay! =P And this thread is basically ours.

Cacoethes 11-05-2023 08:51 PM

Yeah, it pretty much is XD

Pi.R^2 11-05-2023 08:52 PM

Are the rest of us just here by invitation only then, oh masters of the thread?

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:52 PM

I neglected it for too long.

And am not entirely sure how it happened in the first place...!

(and still have some catching up to do)

As Beckie's second in command, I say yes. BUT, it is all inclusive of course.

Cacoethes 11-05-2023 08:54 PM

In that case, JENNA IS BANNED FROM OUR THREAD!

Everyone else is fine :p

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:55 PM

But she;s my new friend. I don't want to lose her so soon =(

Pi.R^2 11-05-2023 08:57 PM

I’m off to research the highest posters on this thread to check your right to claim such authority :plain:

Sounds like a nice evening ahead, Jen.

It can be super stressful having a chronic health condition. Sorry you have to deal with the stress of that, hoping professionals have a lightbulb moment soon.

Risotto was super tasty. And chatting to my parents went well.

MasterChef and other cooking shows low key inspire me. Like I don't embark on big fancy things but I have learnt about balancing flavours with seasoning and acidity and stuff. And it's the reason I decided to do things like make my own tartar sauce and my own salad dressing. I do really enjoy cooking and baking.


You are guys look like you are having fun!

Am I allowed to be here if it's your thread NP? :p

long road 11-05-2023 08:58 PM

Yay I am everyone else. That means I'm fine!

Pi.R^2 11-05-2023 08:58 PM

Ahh shit, you’re right. I hoped Lillie might beat one of you and was going to demand she come back to defend me but alas, you both vastly outpost her now!

nonperson 11-05-2023 08:59 PM

You are more than welcome to be here, Jen!

I'm glad your risotto and parent chatting was good =D

I don't know why Jenna's checking. Does she had additional info on this thread that us commoners can't see?

nonperson 11-05-2023 09:00 PM

i'm honestly not sure how I have managed to be the second highest poster in this thread. I'm still a newbie.

I blame alcohol. *frown*

Cacoethes 11-05-2023 09:05 PM

I'm glad you enjoyed your risotto jen!
Love risotto!

I'm at over 32,000 posts in this thread.
I am equal parts proud and embarrassed XD
