1Hey Coach,
I was trying to grind this bench outside the Dollar Store and I landed in this funky way and my knee has been killing me ever since. What should I do?

Hey manunitedkid,
You need to do a couple of things. If your knee's killing you, go see a doctor. It may just be badly bruised but it could be something more serious and you don't want to jeopardize your promising skateboarding career. Secondly, you should learn how to grind a bench without landing in a funky way that makes your knee hurt. Whenever you're trying grinds, or any other skateboard tricks that are a bit difficult, you're going to have your share of wipeouts. If you're doing a trick that you're not familiar with, wear knee pads, a helmet and other protective gear (you may even be able to buy some at the Dollar Store where you're hanging out.)

Do you have a question on basketball, football, skateboarding, injuries, fitness or anything else to do with sports? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
