    Tumbling and the pain it provides

    I don't have a professional instructor. I am not taking any classes. My school is East Alton Woodriver High and not Tammy's Tumbling Dojo. I gain instruction from nowhere. This may be my problem. I consider cartwheeling alot and practising kip ups and handstands good fun cardio work. I'm sweating like a dog after I attempt to kip up 48 times. But the pain that comes with it is annoying. I had no trouble with my ankles before I learned to cartwheel, and I saw nothing wrong with my bed before I did a standing back bend. It's annoying when I run and trip over a giant ball of air just because my ankle's fucked and my hands feel like they have carpal tunnel. I heard tumbling's dangerous to your health, but to what extent?

    Gymnastics can be extremely dangerous. Please try to do a backhandspring

    Gymnastics and ice skating, the only sports where being over 21 makes you a washed up old codger.

    Matthius, you should incorporate a trampoline into your gymnastics practice

    Try practicing wall flips over an open sewer.

    Start small. Buy a trampoline spring and shove it up your penis.

    How about tumbling a bit less and doing martial arts a bit more......
