Myself with Kate Magram at SHOW Circus Studio in Easthampton, MA. I know the trick as “Gilded Leaf” but I’ve heard other names, including “m***erf***er” which is fairly apt since it HURTS.
Would like to do it again though, and work on getting my shoulders rotated fully forward.

My first ever back flip with a full twist - awkward, but it’ll get better!
If you can’t tell, I’m the flyer in this one.
Video was cut off a little quick - I’ll get a better recording next time.
