About
Much like the Shaposnikova family, the Tkatchev Family of Elements is many and varied. The Ricna is among the earliest and, as such, has had plenty of time to become ensconced in the terminology of gymnastics, so you’ll often hear this skill referred to as a Ricna rather than by its description, whereas many of the newer Tkatchev-style elements are named by description of the skill for the sake of universal clarity.

For reference, refer to: Shaposhatchev Dictionary
