    Back Handspring- Back Handspring Trouble!!

    I need help with my Hand Front Vault!

    Ok thanks so much, I didn't even notice that before. It is definitely something to play with. You're right, the inconsistency was what was concerning me, sometimes I'd nail them, but mostly I would fall, and I didn't understand why. This could definitely be part of the problem. I'll have my...
