Headspin Crash Course: A 3-part Tutorial for Learning Headspins!

Can you spin on your head??? This is probably the number one question I have been asked since I started breaking in 2005. The answer is yes, and you can too! This tutorial contains everything you need to learn how to spin on your head! ... OK, maybe not EVERYTHING. But if you have a solid movement foundation and you are interested in the exciting world of brain-carrier-rotation this is a great place to start! In this 3-part tutorial, we will take our headspin from 0 (headstand) to float (wheeee!!). Prerequisites: solid headstand (hands on the floor) for 10 seconds.
