Mat Jump Tutorial

The mat jump, or the long jump, in the PARE and POPAT test is a challenge for many (particularly the POPAT mat, which is 6 feet in length).

Failure to clear the mat, or continually touching it on takeoff, will result in a time penalty for the PARE, or a possible disqualification for the POPAT. Therefore it’s crucial that you learn how to jump the right way to avoid any heartache.

Watch the Mat Jump tutorial below and apply what you learn to your practice.
