Abstract

Angular momentum in the straddle Tkatchev was reported as part of a study by Arampatzis and Br├╝ggemann, (2001). The Tkatchev is an interesting skill as it requires the gymnast to reverse the direction of rotation between the bar circling action (the longswing) and the flight phase from release until regrasp.
