Practice pushing with your fingertips when you overbalance, and bend your arms and kind of do a really small handstand push up if you underbalance. Practice kicking up against a wall then take your feet off the wall slowly and practice controlling it. To control it really well you need to be able to press into one, which I dont how to do because I never really practiced for it and cant do it.

the only way to get good at holding handstands is to practice and walking on hands will come with practice aswell. I cant hold for quite some time and i can walk.If you want lifts ,practice handstand press ups against a wall psuido press ups and tucked planches. I just learnt a few lifts which were really annoying but cool when you got them.

its really hard to move on a handstand i found coz your balance moves all over the place and you fall xD
