Abstract: An examination of data for a basic skill taught in gymnastics, namely the forward roll, identified three sequences. These sequences were termed the beginning, bridging and end. Within each sequence a number of indicators were delineated, which were further subdivided into descriptors (Haynes et al., 2005). This paper presents an analysis, using the descriptors as a means of comparison, for three cohorts: children, young adults and older adults (n = 117), who performed the forward roll. Results show both similarities and differences between each cohort. Findings are presented in graphical format, as well as an ensuing discussion. There are pedagogical implications, especially for the way teachers engage their students from across different age groups.
