Definition: Yamawaki

Yamawaki: A high bar release move first done by Japanese gymnast, Kyoji Yamawaki. It is essentially a stretched Markelov. The FIG has rated it a “D” difficulty skills.

Here is a video that begins with a crash and then has Charlie Tamayo doing an incredibly high Yamawaki, with a much different (double arch) tap swing than you see most gymnasts use.
