Here’s another very well edited tutorial from the Saving Tenths YouTube channel. I’ll add a couple of additional points for KAS: it’s important that coaches of BEGINNERS understand the relationship between cartwheel (early) and twisting (later). If one decides the direction of cartwheel — then later decides a different direction of twist, this particular vault is … Continue reading Kasamatsu progressions

López (Kas + double twist) is in the Code at 6.0. An extra half twist takes this to 6.4, I assume. Keisuke Ogura competed it at the NHK cup.

Our Olympic Vault Champion invented the Yang Hak Seon, Handspring front with 3/1 twist. (1080 degrees of twist) 6.4 start value now. Full Twist links to reports he’s trying to invent another (Yang 2?) by doing near the same vault from round-off. And saying it turns 1260 degrees. Kasamatsu plus 2 1/2 twist. Cool. But … Continue reading Kasamatsu plus 2 1/2 twist
Mas Watanabe. Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube. Note that this is a “Kaz”, not a Tsuk 1/1. It’s 1/4-on, 3/4-off in the opposite direction.
