    Teaching how to cartwheel over the internet sounds like a difficult feat. 0.o

    I love cartwheels! I cartwheel in open spaces all the time and teach my friends how to do them too. :D Too bad I've never tried teaching someone online...

    I can teach people how to do backflips though :)

    If you can do backflips, then you certainly should be able to do a cartwheel! :D

    maybe search it up on YouTube. and you definitely have the physical strength to do it if you can do a back flip so just go for it!! try it on a trampoline first if you are really that scared. also, look at ur hands and keep ur eyes open. this probably sounds stupid but it really helps if you're scared

    Hand, hand, foot, foot.
    That's how I learned when I was like 4. It will probably look ugly at first, but once you do it a million times it will seem like second nature.

    I could never get my legs to properly straighten out once upside down.
    But I can do a backflip. Weird.

    We used to do gymnastics in gym class every year, and I was good at it until about 5th grade.

    -Stand facing forward
    -Put your dominant foot in front of you and your other foot behind you, so that you and your feet are facing forward and they are about 2-3 feet apart.
    -Bend over and forward until your hand that is on the same side as your dominant foot is about to touch the ground. Your hand should be perpendicular to the direction in which you are facing
    -As it is landing on the ground, push off the ground and forward with your feet, and put your other hand down facing the same direction as the first hand
    -Let the weight of your feet and your body move your feet over your head until they land on the ground, facing the opposite direction that you started in and with the other foot in front
