Somersault or Tumblesault?

Settle a debate. Which one is it? Somersault or tublesault? And to clarify, we are describing when a child bends over, puts their head on the floor and rolls over....

I think "tumblesault" is like the pack-n-play of the playpen.

"somersault" is the old school origional.

Everything keeps changing...

Re: Somersault or Tumblesault?

I was a gymnast when I was a kid and we always called it a somersault, never heard of a tumblesault.

We say tumblesault. For some reason I thought somersaults were in the air, although I'm wrong.

holy bible says so must be true Chat Icon

Someone go edit it, so it say both. A word only has meaning is someone else understands it. Well, looks like you got enough people understanding it.

I never heard of tumblesault, only somersault, I took gymnastics as a kid.

found more

The tumblesalt is an acrobatic feat in which a person tucks in mid-air and moves the feet over the head. A somersault is an acrobatic exercise in which a person rotates around the somersault axis, moving the feet over the head.
