Front Flip 11/05/2007
 

The front flip, also known as the somersualt or front tuck is a gymnastics or acrobatic movement where the athlete jumps up, rotating forwards 360 degrees in the air, landing back on their feet. It is hotly debated whether this movement fits in with traditional Parkour, the outcome of most of these debates is that Parkour is defined more by intention than by movement, but that there are in fact extremely rare instances where a front flip would be a practical Parkour movement.
