From a hang on the rings, perform a muscle-up that continues into a bent arm press to handstand. Initially it is acceptable to perform the press portion of this movement to a shoulder stand, however this should be discontinued in favor of a press to handstand as soon as possible. If you are not yet proficient at ring handstands, feel free to straddle the legs at the top of the bent arm press handstand and use the ring straps to stabilize the handstand.
These may be done with a bent arm tuck press to handstand, a bent arm straddle press to handstand, a bent arm pike press to handstand or very advanced athletes may perform them with a bent arm straight body press to handstand (hollow back press) as shown in the photos below.
