Back handspring 1/2

The back handspring 1/2 is an odd goose. It’s sort of the same idea as the much more common Onodi, but instead of the 1/2 turn coming before hand support, it comes after hand support on the way down. In that regard, it has to be a true handspring element—displaying flight again after hand support in order to allow for the 1/2 turn to take place—rather than ending in a comfortable front walkover the way the Onodi does. For more value.
