HOW TO DO A STANDING FRONT FLIP
A front tuck is a flipping, aerial skill done in a tucked body position, with your knees pulled tightly into your chest. Gymnasts and cheerleaders typically do this skills as a punch front tuck with a running start and a punch, or two-footed jump, to gain power for the skill. However, after solidly mastering a front tuck from a running start, you can begin to work on a standing front tuck, which requires you to get all your height from just your leg muscles.
Stand with your arms above your head and your feet together. Pick something on the wall in front of you to look for as you rotate.
Bend your knees deeply and jump in the air as high as you can.
Bring your knees into your chest as you start to flip forward. Swing your arms down to grab your shins.
Rotate in a tight tucked position, until you see your chosen spot on the wall.
Open your body up as soon as you see your spot on the wall.
Land with your feet together and your knees slightly bent.
