In this lesson you will learn how to do a flashkick. A flashkick is basically a back flip stepout where you land on one leg first. There are two flashkick variations:
a) The tucked (small) flashkick - standing (this instruction)
b) The (big) flashkick layout, where you extend your entire body like if you were doing a gymnastic front flip layout. The flashkick layout is usually done after a round-off or a back handspring. Before you try the standing flashkick you should be able to do a standing gymnastic back flip and the the back handspring stepout. Find detailed gymnastics instructions at artistic gymnastics main.
