I'm clueless when it comes to gymnastics so I was wondering if it matters what leg a child uses to lead in gymnastics. More specifically my 5yo learned her roundoff, cartwheel, and backwalkover a year ago from watching her older sister who is an all star cheerleader. She leads in her cartwheel with her right foot and when she does her backwalkover her right foot is out in front. She just joined gymnastics about 2 months ago and they are not working on backwalkovers in her class yet but I'm sure they will soon. In cheer you can't lead both on the same foot because when you do a combination pass you end your cartwheel with your left foot out so you need to go back into the walkover with the left foot out or learn to cartwheel on the opposite foot. Is this how it is in gymnastics, will she need that for combination passes? Should she start working on learning the cartwheel or walkover on the left leg. If so which one do you think is easier to learn to do on the opposite foot?
