Hi Flor, welcome! That's great that you learned front handsprings already - it's a level 4 or 5 skill. Since you haven't gone to gymnastics class yet, did you practice it on the grass? Soft grass without sticks in them are good for gymnastics practice! Sometimes we also do some simple tricks at the beach too! :D

Hi! :D Just probably better not to wear white when you're practicing on the green grass! We practiced flip flops in a row at the park before during gymnastics class on the grass - there's more space there to do more in a row than on the gym floor, you know!

Hi! Lots of people choose grass if they're doing the gymnastics skills outside of the gym, w/o the springy bouncy floor. I found these in the related search column before on youtube: tumbling on grass: Front Walkover, Roundoff, Back Handspring, Back Tuck [youtube]knpumwOFoTw&mode=related&search=[/youtube] front yard cheerleader, back flip on a hill My Standing Tuck [youtube]52NeoFH_iHM&NR=1[/youtube] you can tell she's a cheerleader from her start move before she does the back flip - the cheerleaders at my gym do something like that too cheerleader (same poster as the previous one) FRONT WALK OVER ROUNDOFF BACK HAND SPRING TUCK [youtube]wnlL5hwi6nQ&mode=related&search=[/youtube] the cheerleaders do their gym skills in their routine on the grass at games anyways, right, so it makes sense that they bring it to the grass after they learn it in the gym.

Hey everyone! Grass is a good surface, a basketball court is ok if you know what you're doing, snow not so good! slippery - on ice when they do those gymnastics moves (like Surya Bonali) they have skates on. Not kidding about someone trying in the snow lol: Back Handspring [youtube]WLR2wuIyZn4&mode=related&search=[/youtube] So not good idea!! Plus, the guy doesn't even have any gymnastics training. This guy doesn't have gymnastics training either and tries in the MIT wrestling room, he's so crazy!! It's good he didn't get hurt. He has a good handstand walk though. Back Handsprings [youtube]tpbbUnGsP4I&mode=related&search=[/youtube] basketball court: Front handspring cartwheel backhandspring [youtube]nKNA4K_SmoE&mode=related&search=[/youtube] This one is good tumbling, knows what he's doing!
