confusion about twisting

Larry Gleason knows that many coaches are confused on two points:

  • a cartwheel initiated with the RIGHT foot forward and the RIGHT hand down first is actually considered a LEFT twisting skill

Watch the left shoulder move backwards.

  • the barani should be taught as a front somersault with a late twist

This one is getting widely understood. It is hard to find a coach anywhere who teaches early twisting.

If you are clear on those two points, good on you. 🙂
