Spotting and securing are two essential safety constituents when it comes to teaching and training gymnastics. Teaching Children's Gymnastics takes a close look at what spotting and securing really means and how they must be done. It is a new, revolutionary teaching idea which gets even the youngest children to learn how to spot each other safely. Containing step-by-step instructions for teaching children to spot each other, as well as hundreds of examples and suggestions for interactive and spotting gymnastic exercises, Teaching Children's Gymnastics is an invaluable resource for all teachers, coaches, adventure playground leaders and others who work with children.

I agree, from the small glimpse I got of this book online it looks to be very outdated and the one move I looked at was definitely not a recommended move.
I found Tony Retrosi guides on youtube on gymnastics minute far more beneficial and obviously up-to-date!
