Find a thin ledge or rail, waist height, with a grass landing area.

Step 1:Place both hands down on ledge straight out in front of you.

Step 2:Jump off left leg and swing right leg up and on top of ledge on the outside of your right arm. (place the ball or arch of the foot on ledge)(have your upper body leaned slightly forward over ledge)

Step 3:Push up with right leg, release grip with right hand and thread left foot through

Step 4: Carry right foot off ledge and land with left foot first or both feet * Use opposite directions if your prefer to thread the right leg through instead of left.

Super FAST Progression Steps

1.Slowly walk over ledge using safety vault motion.

2.Add more an more speed to the vault.

3.The once the vault is comfortable, perform the vault on objects and rails above waist height and over harder surfaces.
