Looks like a martial arts move.
he was already in motion when the ball was thrown at him – he doesn’t “flip over the ball”, he was already jumping when the thrown ball goes under him… still an impressive move, and the guy has insane trust in himself to know that he’d land on his feet and not fall on his back/head
Actually, he intended to dodge the throw with his jump. If you look closely at the other guy, he was throwing the ball when he started to jump, so he couldn’t change anything. Of course, he wanted to look cool by doing so, in which he succeeded, as I would say ;-)
And trust in himself? Sure, because he did it hundreds of times before. You don’t do this kind of stuff w/o training it. He probably does either parcour or some martial arts.
Looks like a Capoeira move to me.
If I could have done that, high school would have been a lot different for me…
If he had done that, but without the celebration and hi-fives afterward, his cool factor would have gone up 1000%.
