DD (7) is currently doing around 3 hours gym a week, including a 2 hour acro class. Absolutely loves it at present and does not stop practising. However I am at the other end of the scale where gymnastic ability is concerned. Would love to help her learn new skills but need to understand them myself!

Is there a good tutorial site? Key skills at the moment are handstand to bridge and the backwards kick over, and teaching her to leapfrog - she is great on the floor but a rubbish vaulter for some reason I don't understand.

I think the 'coach Meggin' videos on youtube are quite good

Vaulting is all about a good run up and then keeping tight.
handstand to bridge and kickover.Practise on the sofa and then gradually work down to lower and lower platforms
