  • Cut: While airborne, the legs straddle sideways and forward to land extended in rear support, feet lifted off the floor during the skill.
  • Straddle cut: from 2 arms, push the floor to raise the body in airborne position – straddle cut – half twist – ending in PU/ Wenson

EXPLOSIVE SUPPORT

High V support, reverse cut: Back support on the floor, back parallel to the floor, extending the legs upward and forward with a flight phase.
Impulse from High V support position, airborne phase and landing to push up or split position.
 

LEG CIRCLE

The starting position must be from free front support on both hands; the hips must be lifted and extended during the full rotation. Feet may not touch the floor before the completion of the circle.
Leg Circle, the hips must be lifted and extended
Flair: legs straddle, the hips must be lifted and extended during the full rotation. Feet may not touch the floor before the completion of the circle.
Flair 1/1 turn: Both hands support – kick the leading leg – following leg airborne – following leg swing forward – hips extension – body 1/1 turns with only hands supporting – ending in PU/ Wenson.
