Roll of the day – Forward Forward Hand Roll

Hand roll, start tucked forward, finish tucked forwardIf you have a kick ass forward forward norsaq roll then you could be ready for the forward forward hand roll. The movements are basically the same. Unlike the norsaq rolls you are not getting any additional resistance or righting moment from the norsaq its just your hand. The best way I know of transitioning from norsaq to hand roll is to slowly slide the norsaq further and further down your hand until you no longer are getting any benefit from it. Then just stop using it. I have seen some videos of this roll performed by Greenlanders wearing gloves. I am not sure if this is allowed in competitions, but it would certainly be another way of making the roll easier.
