I have a question about front tumbling in general. If you can’t slide the front foot at all after landing a back tumbling pass, then what is the rule for front tumbling on floor. For example, Haley Bryant’s first pass…and a very difficult pass obviously…but, regardless, what is the ruling for stepping forward or a sliding foot back on a front tumbling pass? Is is judged the same?
