Jump to Handstand

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Jump to handstand
Jump handstand

Poor little old jump to handstand. It’s among the A mounts that is a little more challenging than the very fake-o-i-est A mounts and therefore no one would ever do it. Why jump to a handstand when you can flank circle your lazy ass onto the beam for the same value?

The jump to handstand receives just an A rating while the press handstand is a B because the momentum gained by initiating the jump makes it that little bit easier to get to handstand. But also, A or B, no one really cares. You’re not counting that skill.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
