Acro: Cartwheels

Difficulty: Hard

Safety Warning: You need plenty of space for this one. Remember, you might not be quite as controlled as Rae when you start out! If possible practice in a garden or big empty space and check your surroundings first. Make sure you ask a grown-up to spot you if you need help.

Rae shows you some advanced cartwheels to build on your basic cartwheel. This video is for students who have already mastered the basics. If you’re not quite there, go back and look at Rae’s video on basic cartwheels first.

You’ll learn a one arm cartwheel, second arm cartwheel, triple hand – or 1,2,3 – cartwheel, a switch leg cartwheel and a stepover cartwheel. And if you’re not totally exhausted after all that, well done!
