Start by standing with one foot forward, and the other foot back. Bend both knees in a modified squat position. The thigh of your front leg and the shin of your rear leg should be parallel to the floor. The knee of your rear leg should be almost touching the floor. If your right leg is in front, then raise your left hand in a 90-degree "L" shape in front of you, as though you had just delivered an uppercut to someone's jaw. Put your right arm behind you, also bent at a 90-degree angle, with the upper arm parallel to the floor. When ready, jump up with an explosive motion, making sure to get both feet off the ground. Switch in mid-air so that your front leg goes to the rear, and the rear leg comes to the front. Switch your arms accordingly.
