About
An extremely rare skill, the L-grip Endo doesn’t tend to appear in routines much at all because among the few gymnasts proficient in L-grip work, the large majority will elect to go for the E-value one-armed pirouettes and as such ignore the D-valued Endo 1/2. It is, however, still a D value and therefore useful in combinations.

Value
D

Currently performed by
