About
Invented by the daredevil, take-no-prisoners, trying-helps-only-sometimes queen herself, Tatiana Nabieva, the toe-on layout Tkatchev remains the only Tkatchev in existence performed in the layout position, a feat previously thought either impossible or too ridiculous to attempt.

These days, bars skills are only as valuable as the elements they can be connected to, and controlling the element enough to be worth it and to be connected into a Pak proved to be a challenge for Nabieva, one that has so far not derailed the heir to the Nabieva throne, Elena Eremina.
