A good grip is the basis for performing a hold in Acrobatic Gymnastics. It makes it possible to carry out a hold safely and in perfect harmony. Grip techniques follow simple principles:

            • Providing a contact area that is as large as possible
            • Providing stable and solid support

Grips are carried out using all parts of the body. For example, there is the hand-to-hand grip, the forearm grip, the thigh grip and the foot grip.
