Im not sure whos originated that particular no hand hang 5 variation I do remember Woody Itson in Freestylin' doing this trick but not sure if was before this, Lee Clark definitey messed around with this trick a lot, forward and backwards. Ross is incredible, the buttery smooth style, backwards decades, no handed hnag 5 to whiplash, amazing stuff for the time, groundbreaking!
