cherokeelovebat Is helping me with trying to put my "vision" for this community into words... I'm struggling...
But, in the meantime.
I have a question. How exactly does one go about doing a cartwheel? I've wanted to do one my entire life, is there anything I can do besides just hurtling myself in the general direction of the ground and hoping I don't dent myself to badly? Is there a process?

Not that I can personally do one... but maybe this will help.

In fact I remember in elementry school the teacher getting pissed off at me cause I wouldn't hurl myself at the ground. I just sort of did it slowly and fell there.. so yeah.. I'm no help.

The safest way to learn ANY skill is in a gym, with professional coaching and equipment....

Damn... you mean I shouldn't be practising in my living room?
Thanks for the link!

once you understand where you're putting your hands in relation to your body, you can put them down and then move your legs over one by one, without really getting off the ground much. then try it with a kick but still don't worry about getting your legs over your head till you're starting to feel more comfortable.
