Shin to Foot to Reverse Hand to Hand

Shin to Foot to Reverse Hand to Hand

Description

This entrance to RH2H takes advantage of the flyers hips already being elevated to around the height needed for their handstand. While most entrances to handstands involve a flyer needing to press up on top of a higher surface this entrance allows the flyer a rare oppurtunity for a flyer to come down into a handstand. As such the details of how a base can provide support and smooth pathway for the flyer as the come down are essential for making this entrance consistent.
