Above is our basic video for practicing kicking up to a handstand.  This is a simple concept for some athletes, while for others getting upside down is a completely foreign experience.  Below are links to new videos in our Video Library, including different progressions for learning to get yourself inverted.  Enjoy!

For those that are unsure about being able to support their bodyweight, or that feeling that your arms might buckle, start off with your feet on a box.  Once you feel confident here, move up to practice the same position on the wall.  Once you have enough strength and understanding of this support position, you will have to start learning to lunge and kick up to a handstand.  Depending on your comfort level, you can start with your hands on the box or the ground.  To overcome the fear of falling over, purposefully practice the turnout.  If you have a spotter or are comfortable turning out, you can practice this version of tapping your feet off the wall.  Whatever your skill level, remember to focus on learning and strengthening quality positions first!
