A back hip circle is begun in a front support (see above description) and then swinging the legs to the front and then over the head, and again landing in a front support.
With your hands hip width apart on the bar, you pull your chest up to the bar and kick your feet over the bar and land in a front support (hands on bar with arms straight beside body and hips resting on the bar).
A back tuck is a basic, no-handed back flip. Started in a standing position, the arms swing straight up as you jump and rotate backwards, with the knees to the chest, landing again on the feet.
A round-off back handspring is a combination of a round-off with a running start and "hurdle" (similar to a quick "skip")--which supplies more power--followed by a back handspring immediately after. There is no pause in between. This skill requires a lot of power and speed.
