coach Its a honor to talk to you I just wanted to ask when i do my back
handspring I keep looking over my shoulder which causes my backhandspring
to look crooked. What do i do? And also how long does it take for your
tape to come in?
Depending on who you order my videos from it may take anywhere from 3
days to 2 weeks to arrive. If you want to order from me directly...www.CoachWayne.com
either use the paypal or 800# options with priority shipping for fastest
Remember the back-handspring is a BLIND entry. That means you will not
SEE where you are springing to until AFTER you've landed. Usually the
twist/turn your describing happens when a student is attempting to SEE
the floor where her hands are going.

Practice with a spotter & slow down the leg-spring
& arm reach for a few dozen handsprings and see if you can REACH for
the mat with your hands without looking... instead... FEEL how your body
is traveling and moving and let the FEELING guide you to your hands...
also, use your peripheral vision to keep your orientation.
With matting (an incline mat with a folding mat on top of it is great)
you can create a workout environment that lets you experiment some...
to learn and play with small variations in your handspring. Think of it
as STUDYING your handspring... and explore how different changes in your
timing, approach, push, etc. affect the results you are getting.
Have fun, be safe push HARD!
