FLOOR

Forward Roll

Begin with the arms up, and body stretched tall. Pike the body forward, then tuck the knees, while placing the hands on the ground.  Duck the head, and round the back, then shift the body’s weight onto the back of the head, neck, and upper back.  Maintaining the round position, allow the body to roll forward, until the feet arrive back on the floor, and immediately straighten the legs and body to arrive at a standing position once again.  The hands should NOT touch the floor a second time, but rather raise overhead as soon as possible to complete the forward roll correctly.
