Progress is progress and this is basically how I learned my front flips.  The biggest error I am seeing with your form is that you are throwing your chest down to create your rotation. This is killing your height.  You want to throw your front up and then tuck in a way that your chest doesnt get thrown to the ground, instead your hips is being thrown over your head.  If that makes any sense.  This is a video of a gym I go to and they word that concept allot better than I do.

Thanks! I will try, thanks for the help. So once i learn front flip, how hard it is to learn those variations such as inward wall front flip and stuff? :/
And btw how much is it going to take to learn front ?

Learning the front varies for everybody. It takes some an hour, takes some a year. It took me about a month of solid training.  Even then it wasnt perfect but practice and muscle memory is a slow process.  Once you know the front tuck you can pretty easily put that tucking motion into other tricks without too much extra training. Once again it varies for every person
