Hey everyone, first time poster, long time lurker. Anyway, we have this Parkour & Freerunning group called Triknetics that does a lot of different variations. Anyway, my group said that I should probably learn to do a front flip on the ground and not always off ledges, just so I have it completed. Anyway, after two days of practice, here is where I am at. I have the rotation and the right technique down, I just can't seem to stick the landing, am I supposed to land bent kneed or stock straight? It's a lot faster rotation that doing it off a ledge or rock, which is what I'm accustomed to.

Thanks everyone, tips are always welcome.

I think you are releasing too soon...As for the knees go they have to be slightly bent when landing..
