UNIFIED TRANSITIONS

A unified transition occurs when both feet are used simultaneously at some point in the transition.


Unified

PUNCH

The Punch can be described as a unified (two-foot) landing followed by a unified takeoff. The punch is traditionally utilized within gymnastics and tumbling.

EXAMPLE:
Roundoff [PUNCH] Back Tuck



Unified

POP

The Pop can be described as a sequential (one foot at a time) landing followed by a unified (two-foot) takeoff. Pop is also a takeoff itself - referring to a two-footed takeoff in general. It is also used in the Vert Kick naming system, referring to both the takeoff and the frontside stance.

EXAMPLES:
Cartwheel [POP] Full Twist
Scoot [POP] Full Twist



Unified

REVERSE-POP

The Pop can be described as a unified (two-foot) landing followed by a sequential (one foot at a time) takeoff. Basically the literal reverse of the Pop transition.

EXAMPLES:
Parafuso [REVERSE-POP] Aerial
Parafuso [REVERSE-POP] GMS



Unified

BOUND

The Bound is an extension/modification of the previous three unified transitions - it can be described as any unified transition that has an extra adjustment step on the ground before takeoff.

EXAMPLES:
Scoot [BOUND] Full Twist
