    CP is working an Arabian step out through to full and one of her tumbling instructors said her Arabian is more like a half. So what’s the difference?

    The way it was once explained to me is that an arabian is more twist first then flip and a half is more flip first then twist. They look a lot different when executed correctly.

    Here's 2 videos I just found quickly of each
