One-Foot High Kick
Considered to be among the most difficult of the Inuit traditional
games, the One-Foot High Kick is a sport that combines the explosive
power, the coordination and control of one’s body.
A target made from
seal hide will be suspended from a pre-determined height and the athlete
will have three minutes to take a running approach and jump off of two
feet and attempt to kick the target. The athlete will also use their
flexibility in order to reach high heights. The athlete must land on the
same foot that they kicked the target with.
