Jump 4

I would like to add one comparison with a parachute jump. It is as you jump blindfolded from an unknown height. You don't know when your legs will contact the ground. All you can do is slightly bend your legs, bring them together and fall after the impact.
In the club, we have been told that the velocity of our body when you land is like when you jump from the 2-meters height. You definitely should not try to stay on your feet.

Oleks!  You are really getting so good at writing in English!  And your topics are really informative too!  Pronunciation was fine too!

I would like to add one comparison with a parachute jump. It is as if you are jumping blindfolded from an unknown height. You don't know when your legs will contact the ground. All you can do is bend your legs slightly, bring them together and fall after the impact.

In the club, we have been told that the velocity of our body when you land is like  ["similar to" is a bit better here in written English] when you jump from the  height of  2 meters height. You definitely should not try to stay on your feet.

Great work on this text

Hi Kjcoffin!
Thank you! "Is similar to" sounds better.

Well done again, Oleks.

I would like to add one comparison with a parachute jump. It is as if you are jumping blindfolded from an unknown height. You do not [Contractions are not suitable for writing.] know when your legs will contact the ground. All you can do is bend your legs slightly, bring them together and fall (on the ground) after the impact.
In the club, we have been told that the velocity of our your body when you land is like when you jump from the a 2-meters height. You definitely should not try to stay on your feet.

Hi Aliakbar!
Thank you! I understood, "fell on the ground" sounds more accurate.
