    I believe what Matt did was nothing less than incredible. FIrstly to take that first step to overcome a fear is so difficult, and then having the world see it. I applaud you Matt, the team of @yestheory and all their friends who stuck by him. I recently started watching your videos, and each time I learn something new that really resonated with me. Being in lockdown, your videos have helped me in more ways than one, and now I have made it my everyday new goal to seek discomfort so I too can live my life to the fullest and come out each day stronger than I was when I woke up. Thank you for sharing

    Hey yes theory crew so glad to see matt attempting to overcome a small fear like that. personally ive struggled with the same exact fear since I've had some bad spills as a kid. I've gotten better but still have yet to land a standing back also. For him to keep trying after those to hits is just inspiring since i would have called it a day there. Something that is really enjoyable and not dangerous at all is using lines on either side of you connected to a harness thay allows you to spin freely in mid air. Yes some people might say they are kid parks to help them learn standing backs without being able to hurt themselves but ive personally seen people from all age groups on these even old and it brings me joy and inspiration rather than just astonishment and slight jealousy to watch them overcome that fear or achieve that dream through repition in a controlled environment. Love you guys hope everything is going well and yall are staying safe, Love and peace. Is there a part 2 out yet cause I did go looking for it?

    Well that made my feet sweat .. know your fears, I used to do trampoline comps when younger and fell on my head once. later hurt my side doing a front flip highlighting loads of health issues .. not caused by trampolining, really it was my saviour. Had to have a head operation and now forever hate myself that I’m too scared to do a flip. Good on you for doing it, but don’t let part 2 put pressure on you, not yea theory style but sometimes needs must

    I know that feeling all too well. I am 18 years old, and have always been a "Music-boy" who has done sports, but never anything with flips! I started doing gymnastics 2 years ago, and I was terrified of everything, but mostly by being scared of what other people thought of me. I hated failing when there was an audience, and in the start, I was also very afraid of hurting myself. It has become a lot better over the years, but in these corona times I quickly fall back into the thought patterns Matt is talking about, but now I can snap myself out of them! I really admire your tenacity with the backflip, and I know how hard it is to break that mental block, but I know you can do it! There is a story about Houdini who wanted to prove that he could bust out of a prison cell in a few hours. After 1 hour his confidence started to fail, and after 2 hours he was bathed in sweat and collapsed on the door - which then opened. It was never locked! The moral of the story is, we don't know how many doors in our mind we think are locked, which really isn't. I believe this is one of those cases. I really hope you make a part 2 of this! Thank you for the video Matt, not only did it realize the power of the human thought but also that even though i practice with people who are 5x times better than me, I might be alright at it as well ;)

    I can't even dream of trying a flip, I would love to be able to. It's all a mental task. With confidence you can achieve it, with fear you'll fail. You need to distance yourself from that fear and not let it engulf you mid air

    y'know, I understand how Matt feel when I was still in kindergarten, my family went swimming in a public pool. I went too far out and almost drown, I had to save myself since nobody even notice I almost drown. idk what would've happened if I really did drown back then. bc of that now I have a fear of drowning, the result of me never learning how to swim till now.

    I understand that he just does not want let his small fears controling his life...and his body is able to do this, there is no doubt...but you guys are sometimes trying to overcome fears way too quickly and the body and the mind have to deal with a big amount of stress...I am sure that he would have done it without any effort if he had just practiced on the trampoline and in the gym for a few weeks, before he actually went to do it on solid ground. Learning how to do a backflip can be compared to learning at school...sometimes you have to learn too many pages in a book in a short period of time, and even if you were sure that you are ready for the test while you are at home, you come to shcool and you cannot remember a single word of the subject that you have been studying. Same thing with learning how to backflip. I think he just had to give some time for his body and his mind to adapt to the fact that he will do it sooner or later. The difference between him and the other guys...among all, is that they love backflipping and if the get hurt the love overcomes the fear...while he just want to erase that from his bucket list. He just had to give his head a few days, a week,or two...just doing backflips inside and one day he would wake up confident and he would not need to go to the beach, he would just have done it in the backyard with no effort.

    He literally manifested his greatest fear by rushing himself. By putting a time limit he put too much pressure on himself and he completely stopped focusing on his form. Back flipping is too dangerous to just rush into learning like that. There are no shortcuts. The reason he got hurt was completely unnecessary and absolutely of his own creation.. Its almost December 2020 and still no part 2. If he can't conquer his fear the backflip will own his mind and this will haunt him for the rest of his life.

    I watched this a while ago and was jealous because you had trained guys helping you. I would've totally learned it the day I watched your video if I had the support you had. Anyway, my friends were helping another friend learn a backflip while we were at the sand volleyball courts last night, so I finally decided to try it. I did it unassisted on my second try!! I wouldn't let myself try it until I was 100% sure I could do it without help. Recently I've been practicing meditation and that helped me gain confidence and silence the nerves. It paid off :)
