How to do a Gymnastic Back Flip
In this lesson you will learn how to do a tucked back flip in artistic gymnastics. The back flip is a bit easier than the front flip, but most people are scared of it at the beginning, because you flip backwards. I recommend you learn this skill under the supervision of a professional gymnastics coach or at least somebody who has taught people before. If you can already do back handsprings, and have some old mats to jump on, you can try it alone. Some people learn the gymnastic back flip without learning the back handspring before. It's possible, but I don't recommend that. A good preparation for acrobatic flips is jumping into water from a 1 meter springboard or jumping from a trampoline onto landing mats.
