Barani: A forward somersault with a half-twist. The skill is most often done in the layout  position  and the twist is done with a ¼ in, ¼ out twist timing. In TnT (Tumbling and Trampoline) competitions, a barani is any front somersault skill with a ½ twist (the twisting can be done as a ½ in, ¼-¼ or 1/2 out).  A barani usually refers to a two-foot punch take-off, two-foot landing aerial skill.  A hurdle step, one-foot aerial take-off, two foot landing skill would be more accurately called an “aerial barani.”
