Tips[edit | edit source]
- When taking off for a frontflip make sure to jump upwards, not forwards. You need as much height as possible.
- Do punch your face (stomping hard before takeoff). This method is used by gymnasts, and while it may work on a springy gym floor, on solid ground it will destroy your knees. Instead, try to land softly, then jump upwards.
