introducing forward twisting

I always start beginners from forward piked salto. As does trampoline coaching legend George Hery.

This way they get a foundation of “late twisting”. And it helps avoid the dread Barani Confusion.

Thanks once again to GymSmarts for posting these free tips.

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. 🙂
