i'm curious about the cartwheel pass. i have pretty good luck with it against guys my level or lower (7mo white belt), but it doesn't work for snot against solid blues and above. then again, very little i do works against solid blues and above. in any event, i'm curious: does this passing technique have merit? is it purely a showboat move? is this why you don't see it much in high level competition? disclaimer: i'm not into the move for the showy factor, altho i'm aware that there is one. it's just that i keep hearing that your game develops in unique response to your own talents and physical attributes, and i've always been really good at the acrobatic stuff. jumping, dive-rolling, cartwheels, jacknives (backrolling into a hand stand where you launch yourself into the air a bit and land on your feet, repeating on down the mat), you name it. i love that shit. in any event, i'm wondering if the move merits further study. if so, can anybody lend pointers on how to do it well? is the success of the move based on speed? on how perpendicular you are mid-cartwheel? any particulars on how to land? good/bad ways to set it up? thanks!
