Double Arabian (Uneven Bars)



Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Double Arabian

For my money, the true double Arabian bars dismount is undervalued at D. That’s especially apparent now that the double front 1/2 out has been upgraded to E. This dismount also features a 1/2 twist and two front saltos…so…? It’s a legitimate upgrade argument that also might encourage more people to perform it instead of the two dismounts we do see, the DLO and the FTDT. Anything to add another dismount to the mix.

Most of the time, when people perform theoretical double Arabians, they end up doing something more like a Fontaine, where the first salto is a back tuck with a 1/2 twist, and I’m fine with that one staying at D.
