    I think if you’re doing it from a split grip it should be a pretty simple transisition. I haven’t tried it myself because I just recently got my aysha and it’s not consistent, but in my mind it seems feasible. Doesn’t it? LOL

    Yes its quite easy as long as you have the split grip aysha down pat. From you butterfly all you need to do is bring both legs off of the pole. Just make sure before you do that you feel you are stable in your split grip hold.

    I usually go into a split grip ayasha from the butterfly first.( point of contact-my hook leg -knee to ankle). Then I extend that butterfly hooking at the ankle. Then take my hooked leg off the pole, lowering it into a v split aka ayasha. The split grip has to be solid with the top hand pulling you into the pole and bottom hand, elbow locked straight, pushing you away from the pole. Hope that helps.

    I should have said I can’t do aysha yet I thought this would be the easiest way to learn it?

    I definitely think that the split grip aysha is the most advanced grip for this move! Of course, everyone is different, & i know that Sissybuns did this before the other grip ayshas, but typically forearm & elbow grips are more stable, safer, & easier.. it’s just a matter of "getting" the technique for these grips, so that you can work on the aysha with them. Good luck either way!

    for the split grip aysha are you supposed to keep the upper elbow bent or straight? i can only get into the split grip position from a cartwheel mount right now. i can get the jackknife, but aysha and straight edge i have no idea how to get into!
