To reach this level of front dismounts, as with any other gymnastics activity, the gymnast must progress step by step from the easiest basic skills to the most difficult ones.  In the case of front dismounts, they must develop increasing confidence and balance to be able to run across the beam and punch the dismount takeoff.  Gymnasts must also get used to punching with one foot in front of the other, and first learn each dismount into a pit until the skill can be performed safely and consistently.
