Star to Hand to Hand

Entering in from star is one of the most common entrances to L-basing hand to hand. This entrance has the advantage of the flyer getting to start in a nearly finished handstand shape while the base can lower them down into the hand to hand. It asks for a strong understanding of the flyers handstand shape and a steadiness of the hand connection as the base lowers the flyer into position. In this video we give our breakdown of the key points and micro progressions to make this skill smooth and predictable.
