Glide Kip Stoop/Straddle Cut

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Glide kip straddle cut
Glide kip stoop through

Here we have two pretty different skills just jammed into the same box and description in the code of points because, eh who is even reading this section of the code of points anyway? No one. No one cares. The straddle cut version seen above has its place in gymnastics history as the 1984 compulsory bars mount, but both the version with a straddle cut and the version with a stoop through to rear support are wholly impractical in modern elite gymnastics. Imagine if someone tried the straddle cut? I mean, it doesn’t even end in handstand and is followed immediately but another kip. 17 points off automatically.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
