No, this not some psychopathic animal cruelty. This is all about learning to land correctly and “bailing” correctly from not reaching the top edge of the cat leap with your hands.
1⃣Ensure you have your feet land a fraction of a second first. Then the hands.
2⃣Look at where you will be landing, so look down! This will allow you to spot your landing.
3⃣Use your hands to stop your head from hitting the wall.
4⃣Increase the hight slowly to get used to the drop and landing.
Go carefully, but this is essential training! Learning how to recover from missing something is critical training.
