My basic handstand practice continues. This session includes a solid crash into the wall.

that was going to be my advice as well, but all types of practice are good.

I'm assuming you're already practicing against a wall but what's helping me (for the record I don't have a handstand yet, been training for so long it's just so elusive!!) is kicking up against a wall and focusing first on pushing hard and keeping my upper body straight and tight, then tightening my butt and taking one leg off the wall to find the balance then bringing the other one, this way I'm making progress and when I do it off the wall it's also getting closer. I fall backward more often than forwards.

I haven't yet had an "a-ha!" moment yet though but have had some 3-5 second holds. I freak out and lose it. "Oh man, I'm totally in a handstand... no wait wait nooooo"

Hehe yea I do a lot of holds against a wall for shoulder endurance. I have had some 5-6 second holds. All the advice has been good, thanks!
