The K flip or Kaye flip involves performing a kip-up style movement up a wall before snapping the legs back down to the floor. It can also be described as a rayden with a full body extension while the hands are still touching the wall, similar to a handstand. The move was first performed in January 2008 by Mathew Kaye in a 3RUN gym training video[1], hence the name.

[edit] Variations

  • Alex Watts was the first[2] to add a 180 to the move[3] and gave it the name KA flip ("the (Mathew)K A(lex Watts) flip")
