Tutorial

Air Stalling is an intermediate technique used in the New Super Mario Bros. U game style, and the Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3 game styles while in a boot. When well-executed, it allows Mario to significantly slow the rate of his fall.

Basic Technique

The basic Air Stall is done by starting a Ground Pound and then immediately holding up to cancel it. Repeatedly performing these 2 actions will cause Mario to fall much slower than normal.

Combined with Air Twirling

The advanced Air Stall is done by doing an Air Twirl in-between each Ground Pound Cancel cycle. Doing so will allow Mario to fall even slower than the basic method.
