A back tuck is a tumbling move. In a back tuck, the body is curled up tightly into a ball. The knees are as close to the chest as possible, with the hands clutching the knees. By "tucking" together tightly in this manner, the body is able to reach maximum angular velocity, thus minimizing the time required for the body to complete its revolution.

There is no such thing as a back front tuck. It's either a front tuck or a back tuck.

A tuck (the flip) is when you flip in the air, forwards or backwards, with your knees drawn tight to your chest. A front tuck is when you rotate clockwise, a back tuck is when you rotate counterclockwise.
