Definition: Arabian Double Front

Arabian Double Front: An Arabian double front is an Arabian front (a 1/2 twist into front somersault) done with two front somersaults, instead of just one. It can be done in any of the tumbling positions, either tuck, pike, open or, even, in layout.

It is currently a popular pass in international Elite artistic gymnastics, for both men and women.  It is highly rated in difficulty and meets the requirement for front tumbling without resorting to front combination tumbling passes.
