practice 3's man. once you get comfortable with those, then you move on to grabs with those spins. when you're doing the three, keep your head turned and your body will follow. keep that simple concept in your head and it will work! hope this helps.
weird that this is the only post saying to learn grabs first. I agree that kids should get the straight air grabs before spins. learn as many grabs as you can, then spin and add the grabs. this is natural progression
