i'm currently practicing the flying or jumping side kick for demonstrations. i want to be able to do it till i can jump over like 5 or 6 people. however just jumping over 2 people now seems like my limit.jumping over 10 people in professional demonstraions seems impossible. can anyone give me some tips or practice methods to be able to do so. don't tell me to ask my instructor cos i want to learn this by myself.

I have heard some good stuff about this book:
Explosive Power and Jumping Ability for All Sports: Atlas of Exercises

Here it is on Barnes and Noble website:

I have been thinking about this one myself.

I will let others chime in and maybe we can get some other input on this subject.

Jump:
Jump squats. Assume your fighting position and jump in the hair as high as you can, switch stance while in the air, come down onto the balls of you feet and squat down really low and repeat.
Do knee ups but do them while jumping. Jump up and pull your knees to your chest. come down, bounce once and repeat.

Speed:
Do some resistance training with your legs if you have any equipment for it. If not then build up your speeed. Do lunges, sprints repeately, etc...
It also helps to be light weight. My friend weighs 130 lbs with no fat and he can fly 6-7 feet in the air. So burn off your body fat.
Last thing you will need is some distance to run to get your momentum going but remember you dont want to go flying through the board (only 2 inches is need). You have to be able to break it and land in a good fighting stance w/o crashing into your holder(s).

Just keep practising. It is a pretty cool demo to be able to do that. If it was me, I would first practice on a heavy bag and then practice in the air. then over the kids.

Just make sure you don't try more kids than you can handle, that could be a disaster.

have fun
