How do I do this grab?
Front hand goes down in front of body and grabs between the bindings. Think front hand ‘Roast Beef’.
The Grosman grab is easily confused with a ‘Chicken Salad’. Wikipedia refers to it as Chicken Salad. And although the Internet has never been known to get anything wrong, we think we have found a minor error in the Wikipedia shred annals. A ‘Chicken Salad’ is actually a back hand grab and is the same as a Roast Beef but you have your hand turned in the opposite way – yeap, it’s proper weird. The Grosman got its name from the inventor of the Roast Beef – Jeff Grosso.
If you are struggling with ‘Melon’ grabs (see Basics of the Trick Bag App JUMPS for ‘Melon’) then Grosman could be the answer. Pop a bit of a backside shifty in there and you have a half decent grab. Grosman will always be the poor man’s ‘Melon’, but hey, why not try it – you might just like it.
How do I make this trick look good?
Chuck a backside shifty in there. If you can grab it tightly and drift through the air doing a backside shifty, you are well on your way to ‘Grosman’ glory.
