spotting “Stutz” on P Bars

The Canadian National Coach Edouard Iarov spots Stutz with the gymnast twisting away. I first felt this was less safe than the conventional approach — the gymnast twisting towards you.

Eventually I was convinced. There are real advantages in Iarov’s method (as usual).

I still spot beginners turning towards me. Then switch to the other side once they have a good feel for the skill.
