ALMOST THERE

I can't stand it, I have been practising this for months....the Handspring.

It's a Bl**dy difficult move. Almost there, i practised it at KM8. When i load the video, you can see a guy behind said "Wow"!

Don't mistake the handspring with this. This handspring is solely relying on the arms to hold the my entire body weight whereas the latter, i still have my belly on the pole.

For now, this is my goal

This is Gwendy from Belgium


But my ultimate aim will be to look like THIS (picture is Katie Coates of Vertical Dance ). This is like her signature move.

Thanks VB, on good days i have done (head parelle to the pole) it before, just that this picture is too dark


But still, it's not a consistent move, plus the way i get to this position is still not the correct way. the right way to to spring up to this position straight, whereas i still have to wrap my legs around the pole first!

VERY close oreadi.....yr eye/head towards the floor whereas Katie's eyes are parallel with the pole so if u re-position abit, u are there!!!!
