We have worked hard in the past few months with several collaborators from the handstand world to generate the content for our first issue which is now available in print!

No of Pages: 112 (+4)  Size: A4  ISSN: 2737-7539

This first issue, entitled Common Ground, offers a deeper look into the vastness of the handbalance community. Handstands are an element in various different sports and disciplines that provide an entry point for many athletes, teachers and movers who then get hooked and discover the vast range of possibilities within handbalance. Handbalance often then becomes their main discipline by itself, which brings us back to why we started this magazine in the first place.

The main feature in issue 01 showcases athletes from different backgrounds, such as:

Find out the difference between different handstand techniques and approaches and get to know the stories of these athletes, teachers and movers. Learn about all the different ways handbalancing can be approached and what is common to them all.

Aside from the main feature, we’ll offer a variety of segments, each showcasing special insights and stories relevant to the discipline of handbalancing. Here are some of the highlights:
