    I'm not sure where the name came from but it's not from gymnastics. In gymnastics we called it a backhandspring.

    ummm why not just call it a backhandspring?

    i think these words were created just to sound original lol
    a flip flop is something you wear on your feet (also called slippers...unless that's another tumbling move i don't know about)
    a flick is something you do with a booger hahah or a bug
    i have no idea what a flick-flack is? sounds like someone covering up vulgar language lol
