Exclamation The Perfect Paintball Gun-up Slide - Paintball Instructional Video

Scott Kemp of the LA Ironmen just sent us this video showing you how to slide gun up. The goal is to get you into your bunker fast and low but still have your gun on target fast.

Thanks as always to BKiPaintball for the video!

Very informative and helpful! I gotta go find my free week bki subscription code I got from badlands and use it here this year if it's even still valid that is. If I really enjoy the program I will definitely consider buying a year sub. Haha and then if I get the go sports thing with the paintball university I won't have any excuse to be terrible at paintball haha.

I like the double bunker drill to practice getting the gun up and getting dominance on sliding to both sides. I'm definitely better sliding to my right.

BKi is awesome. Money well spent!!! The best part is how easily accessible Grayson and Scott are for help through emails and Facebook.

Anyone that has played a good amount of baseball should know how to slide.

If you're talking about the head first baseball dive then yes. The feet first version has created more bad habits for paintball players than probably anything else.

I'm constantly teaching players to lean their upper body weight into dives. Most players typically lean back (exactly like the baseball 'slide') creating a harder impact and a bigger target as they slide in.

the lean back is a hard habit to break for sure even without baseball in your history. It "feels" safer and more controlled. I watched one of your BKI video clips on youtube where you repeatedly had people do a two step and one knee slide into a bunker and even after demonstrating and explaining, it was still difficult for those guys to break that automatic mental habit. Cool follow up solo training video to complement that part of some other guys' training video.

It's something we've covered in even more depth at BKi. I was actually approached by a biomechanics expert and one of his first videos on the site covers this exact problem. He does a much better job explaining the problem and solution.

One of the best tricks is to force people into the correct movement. Did the video you watch include me holding a stick or blower up and making the students slide underneath it?

Yessir when they had to slide into the snake after putting their mirror in from the insert. You might have another member in me soon on your website soon sir! Everything "sounds simple" but like most things, its only that simple to those who are most experienced in it. Seems like there's a wealth of knowledge and info I'm missing out on too. Plus... I could some good ol superfitman Scott Kemp teachings to get into fighting shape.

You couldn't have said it better that everything "sounds simple" but only because the most experienced are teaching it. I am the Biomechanics Coach that has the opportunity to help Grayson and Scott bring that "wealth of knowledge" to the BKi community. My job is to break down the skill the pros find so easy to accomplish into the simplest muscular movements I can. These individual movements should be easier to practice to put together into the full skill. Go snag one of the week memberships and check it out, then come back for more. lol. There are plenty more videos to come.

I think baseball head/feet would be both. I was always taught to slide feet first if I could see the ball and where was going. With a twist of the foot and push of hand you could pop up instantly and take off. The paintball slide is almost that exact motion just a little more upright upper body. Good video though. Its amazing of the amount of people that put their body and equipment through the ringer because they don't know how to slide properly.

Should be less upright upper body. From what I've seen in these videos and of course, logically speaking, you should be as low to the ground as possible while maintaining enough posture and a brake and pop up point on your wide leg to swing it around and then pivot up.

Upright = bigger target/longer time before the largest part of your body (unless you have mucho thunder thighs) is behind cover.

Leaning forward with your offhand as your pivot from which you swing your wide leg = a lower more concentrated target and less time with the largest part of your body exposed out of the bunker.

Maybe I phrased that incorrectly. A paintball slide is more upright compared to a baseball slide for obvious reasons.

what do you think is the main reason that changed? Is it just people learned better ways to go about playing, or was it the race to format? Goin back to timed might help it go back, along with the new center w

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
