im asuming youre taking about twisting 360 degrees rather than a 360degree flip. that being said just slowly progress it from low heights higher and higher, movments are muscle memory, just drill drill drill. then drill a little more till you have the confidence you need to do bigger jumps.

oh do you want to do it on flat ground rather than droping elevation? i was thinking you wanted to build confidence to do it from high heights. learning it on flat ground is harder. do it onto something soft so you know you wont hurt yourself. keep practicing on a soft surface till you have the confidence to take it elsewhere.

I am also working on my 360 trying to take it out side for bigger walls. I have been following the progressions I used for my suicide roll and it's working great.

First, start on grass and lay a small backpack on the ground. Practice getting comfortable just doing the roll over the backpack.

Next,  lay a leaf on the ground however far past the pack you want. Now throw it over the pack and past the leaf. (This way you are forcing yourself to throw it bigger just not super high.

Eventually, stack another pack on top of the first one and repeat. (This will gradually develop confidence doing the roll with higher and higher impact.)
