Soar Challenge: 100 Standing Base Getups

Here is this week’s challenge for you all. It is called a standing base. You begin with your back on the ground. Maintain one hand in front of you as a guard. Use your other hand and your legs as a tripod to stand up. This is a very similar movement to an exercise called a Turkish Getup (right). 

This week’s challenge requires you to get up 100 times. Remember you must complete at least 6 challenges to qualify for the next belt test. 

You can also see an excellent description and demonstration by BJJ instructor Ritchie Yip below.
