Step 1:

Stand in an open space with your arms and legs spread (shoulder width apart)

Step 2:

Ask yourself which hand you write with. If it’s your right hand; put your right foot forward.
Same on your left side. Point your back toe so it is lifted off the ground.

Step 3:

Like this!

Step 4:

Lift up your back leg until your hands are on the ground, but your strong foot remains on the ground.

Step 5:

Kick your back leg over your hands so your legs are split in the air like the photo.

Step 6:

Make sure you look at your hands and spread your fingers to keep balance. Put your hands next to each other like in the picture.

Step 7:

Follow through with the cartwheel until your back leg touches the ground. As your foot comes down, lift your hands off the ground so the cartwheel flows smoothly.

Step 8:

Finish your cartwheel with your hands above your head and your feet spread like you started.

Step 9:

Practise your cartwheel until you can do it without trouble, and it flows smoothly.
