The Art of Hand Balancing – Strength Magazine – December, 1927

The subject of this third article on the topic of hand balancing is the one handstand, and to it almost the entire article is to be devoted. Let me say right here, however, that the one handstand is considered one of the most difficult feats (if not actually the most difficult) of straight hand balancing, and those of you who aspire to learn it must prepare yourselves for a long bard grind of practice, practice, practice. And for a considerable time in the beginning you may, apparently, make no headway and may become discouraged and want to give it up, but this is just a good chance to show the stuff you are made of.
