This is a wushu/martial arts exercise for one of my classes. I haven't gotten to polish yet so there's no foot rolls, only a basic facial expression, like two basic hand poses, stiff arms and so on. I would like some comments on the timing before I polish.

My first question is how are the beats? How does the hold feel before the 2nd jump in the air?

Also, how is the end. I originally had him do a little jump in the air from the left over energy from the 2nd jump but I changed it to where he doesn't leave the ground. I'm thinking since he lands fast and there's lots of energy, he'll be really stretched out and he'll hold for a few seconds before he lands. What do you think of it? Does he stay up too long? Should he come off the ground just a bit?

Lastly, any other comments regarding timing, poses, and anything else are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

To me he feels a bit floaty. I would have him hold for a little less in the air..or maybe move a little faster when he's moving up.

You might want to experiment a bit more with some of the posing, such as the pose at the very start when he twists, or the pose at the very end with his right arm.

Looking good.
