CartWheel Tutorial Haze

February 29, 2008

What? you don’t think you can do a cartwheel? of course you can, there easy.

First, for the sake of this tutorial, we will assume you have two hands, two legs, and weigh less then 300 pounds.

Now heres how to do a Cartwheel

From a standing position bring your hands up above your head and throw them down in the direction you are facing, (pick which ever side is more comfortable for you) if you go to the left your left hand should reach the ground a short time before your right hand, just the reverse if you went to the right. Then as you throw your self onto your hands you put your right hand down as well, DON’T FLINCH if you do your going to fall over, if you don’t and you commit to the cartwheel you can probably do one on your first try. Once you get your hands on the ground and your legs in the air you do really have to do much, just let your momentum carry you over. Now, the leg that’s going to reach the ground first is your back leg, which ever that was when you started your cartwheel, your going to swing that leg down and land on the ball of your foot, then bring the other leg and the rest of you after it. And thats all there is to it.

Cartwheels don’t take a lot of effort, momentum does most of the work for you, you just have to swing a leg down and keep your elbows straight.

points to remember

1) Take a running start if you think that will help you.

2) Your hands don’t both go down at the same time, but one after another.

3) Try and keep your legs above your body and your toes pointed.

4) Your back leg is the one that you will land on first.

5) Keep trying and you’ll get it, anyone can do a cartwheel.

Have Fun guys and girls. ^_^
