Gymnastics question

In a translation I'm looking at, I've run across a word in Japanese that my dictionary gives as "feetfirst somersault hanging from the horizontal bar" or "forward upward circling." However, I'm not entirely sure if there's a more standard term for this or not, and I'm having a hard time finding out, hampered largely by my utter lack of understanding of gymnastics. Googling "forward upward circling" seems to indicate that it's a very Japanese thing, but I'm not sure about that, either.

You can see a picture of someone doing this move here.

Does anyone out there know more about this move, or know whether it has a more standard name in English?

Thanks!
