Toe-on Tkatchev Piked (Church)


Uneven Bars

Skill type
Same-bar release

Known as
Toe-on Tkatchev piked

Named for
Shavahn Church (GBR)

Or, as the code of points calls her, “Savannah Church.”

…Nope. Pull it together. Her name is Shavahn.

The community of E (or greater) Tkatchev variations has grown so numerous in recent years that none truly enjoys supremacy, with each having its loyal band of followers who find it the most convenient to perform. Following the downgrade of the Ray to a D skill, the Church enjoyed a period of popularity as a still-E variation on the same element, no one minding as much that the Church also lost a tenth because an E is still a valuable release skill. Now, nearly as many will perform the regular piked tkatchev, both skills worth the same.

But it’s still my favorite Tkatchev variation, if that’s worth anything to you, which it should be.
