Yet another example of CF trying to take something that has already been "invented" and re-name it to make it their own.
I would say it's more of an issue of CFHQ not knowing what a ring kip or a front uprise is. Remember "inverted burpee"? Really just a neck/floor kip with a jump press to HS.
Steve, Rog did comment on these on the mainpage but noted the reason he and his other gymnasts didn't do them last year at the Norcal Qualifiers was because the rings were set too low.
The standard CF kipping MU is already front uprise-ish with the horizontal pull, pike at hips and push to support.
