Front tumbling elements that transition into typical back-tumbling skills, are a GREAT way to add "seemingly" high levels of difficulty and great looks. The CORE front tumbling skill is the FRONT handspring. If you don't have one, GET IT!For example:
1. Front Handspring stepout, round-off, backhandspring. In this pass, the front-handspring is used to gain momentum and takes the place of a hurdle or run.
2. THREE front Handspring step-outs in a row. (or three fast front-walk-overs in a row.
3. Standing Back-handspring STEP-OUT 1/2 twist into a cartwheel or round-off.
Have fun, Be safe, Push HARD!
