Also known as:
Splits Roll Up to Crossback Straddle is a unique and surprising entry to Crossback Straddle, and there are two versions of this entrance that we teach; an easier version and a more challenging variation.
This more challenging entry can have the potential to put students into a pancaked Crossback Straddle, so we only teach it once students are very strong and consistent in their Crossback Straddle entries keeping their legs parallel to the floor. We teach this entry only after students have learned easier entrances to Crossback Straddle such as Basic Entry, Beeman Twist, Jacket Entry, and more, and once students are comfortable and consistent with their Split Roll Ups.
This entrance can also build fabric understanding of how skills connect, and how leg wraps can potentially become crucifix supports behind the back. This is a concept we use often in higher level skills such as Dancer Wrap to S Wrap and other related crucifix skills.
