    WAG Level 9 bars / overshoot vs pak

    Hi my sister (age 10 level 9) has been told to compete her pak this season. She has trained a perfect pak but can also do a brilliant overshoot.

    Parents Pak be straddleback

    I notice some girls do the pak to get from high bar to the low bar, and some do the shoot over to handstand. What is the difference in difficulty between these two? How does a coach determine which he/she will teach the gymnast first (as a means from getting from high bar to low bar.) Is a...

    Pak vs. bail

    My dd wants to learn a Pak. I've noticed though in JO and college, bails are more common than Paks. I was just wondering if the Pak is harder to learn/teach?
