Answer the questions that we get from parents and athletes on a daily basis. We are your hosts Coulton cruise and rusty breaths slur and we are the owners of justice tumbling company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. All right, so this is storytime number two with last time we did a story time, we had a weird intro. Uh, it was kind of different, a little more relaxing because it was story time for welcome to story time number three. Time number two ain’t doing that. No Way, Jose. We’re keeping it real with what we’ve already got soap for, keeping it fresh. I mean telling you. So anyway, Jenks tumbling lessons, this is, this is what our topic of storytime is going to be Ted Day. It’s going to be over what got us started in tumbling, cheerleading, gymnastics, whatever it is, what it was that was like made that final decision.
Yeah. What drew us to it? What, what made you even think most, most people don’t even think about getting into template.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. So there’s gotta be something, Jenks tumbling lessons, whether it was maybe your, your parents got you into it at an early age or, um, maybe you saw something, maybe you saw a bring it on and you’re like, oh my gosh, I want that life, whatever it might be for me.
For me growing up, Jenks tumbling lessons, I think I was fairly young. I got into it. Uh, I remember seeing in the old Ninja turtle movies, I remember when they got in trouble there. Noster splinter was like, go do backhands. Right? I was like, man, that’s really cool. I read, I read a lot of comics. If anybody knows me, I’m a nerd. I mean, I have the Tattoo daredevil, Ami, daredevil, the man without fear. Um, and the comics, he’s always tumbling, flipping around from roof to roof. I always thought that was awesome. So cool. So got into it. It was terrible at gymnastics, but I did like the tumbling aspect. So kind of stuck with me. But now, yeah, kids know there’s bring it on movies that they can see that um, there was a lot of tumbling movies. Now,
if you look at the age of 17, you shouldn’t be watching, uh, bring it on. I think it’s a radar. I wasn’t really, I may be PG 13. I don’t know. But I felt like it was like a, um,
the original and others like bring it on Saturday.
Yeah, they’ve got a lot of them. Jenks tumbling lessons, but it’s okay. So, so when you, you got into tumbling, you got watch cartoons and comic books and stuff like that. What about, what about cheerleading? What made you think, ah, I want to be a male cheerleader?
Um, I w I went into a cheer gym just to tumble and I was tumbling. A guy came over, asked me, one of the coaches asked if I would, I was like, no, definitely not. But at that time, uh, at school cheerleading, one of my buddies had just lost a bet and uh, he asked if I would do it with him, so I jumped in,
wait, wait, wait, wait. So, so I know who you’re talking about. But he lost the bet. So he had to join the cheerleading and you joined without losing the bet.
He just did it. He needed a friend. So me and another guy did it with him. Uh, one of the girls have just heard I quit gymnastics. So it worked out perfect timing. Now like now we own,
can you believe it? Jenks tumbling lessons, okay. So I’ll go ahead and go. I got into gymnastics. Um, really because, uh, I went, my parents took us to a men’s gymnastics meet. My brother had been in gymnastics. My younger brother Cooper, who we, uh, we had interviewed before. Um, but he had done gymnastics and so my parents got us tickets to this men’s gymnastics for Oh, you and it was just incredible. Like the stuff that they were doing was insane.
It was really drawn to the Leotards, I think.
Well, those guys don’t wear leotards Bro.
The same thing. The tight leotard. Is that a gay joke?
Is that what that is? Is that what just happened just now anyway? No, that wasn’t the case. Jenks tumbling lessons, I, uh, I was just their, their abilities and what they could do, um, rings a high bar, things like that. It was just crazy how strong those dudes are frequent. I mean, and, and that’s a, so I was a football player at the time and I thought that football is like hardcore. And then I see these guys who are like, just built like a frigging ox, um, and their own body worn. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Uh, and so I was like, man, I want to try that. So I get in gymnastics and I was kind of the same thing with you. Like I didn’t care about the frigging, I did like the rings, but I didn’t care for like the parallel bars or the pommel horse or a vault or anything like that.
Sure. And that’s where we have one at the gym. Um, but I really did start liking the floor better than any of their events. And, Jenks tumbling lessons, I had played other sports in the past, football, basketball track. Um, funny story about track. One day, my last track meet, uh, I didn’t do any event. I just hung out with my friends. They all had these tents and my coach, it was a coach, Greg whitely was his name. Uh, he was so mad at me. I can’t instill this day. I can’t believe that I did that. And I told my mom about it and she’d out there. We got one. We got one. Um, anyway, I told my mom about that story recently and she was like, I never knew that happened. Um, I’m really surprised she didn’t find out, but I got in a lot of trouble. Um, and, uh, I just didn’t have a heart for any of the other sports that I did.
I played baseball. That was probably my, the sport that I liked the most. Um, but I quit gymnastics. I was done with gymnastics. Uh, and I, your mom actually was one of the reasons why I had gotten into cheerleading and my dad didn’t, like, he didn’t take it very well. He thought it was weird. Jenks tumbling lessons, as far as he’s like, gymnastics is one thing, but you go, you want to be a cheerleader, he, you know, and, and it turned out I was, I was pretty good at it. And, uh, I dunno, it was a blast. I had so much fun. And there’s something, there’s something different about traveling with a football team versus traveling, like with your cheerleading squad. I just feel like your squad is more of a family than any other sport that you’ve been in. Your cheerleading coach. Uh, I don’t know. It’s just a different kind of sport. I love every aspect of it.
So this day we still talked to her cheerleading coach coached us when we run into, it’s funny, we ready
go to competitions or, or sport. Uh, it’s not the sport games and we run into are everywhere. We run into people we cheered with everywhere and we love it. It’s awesome. It’s awesome. Yeah.
So it is a family aspect. I, I tried football, I tried baseball. Those weren’t for me. I definitely was terrible at those. Uh, the tumbling was the one thing that stuck at it made me want to go into the gym. It was never like a drag or a number d out of are either forced me to go to the gym. I wanted it to be up there. I was one of those gym rats. Yeah. Every day.
Well, and, and you and I both had a friend who did a skateboarding and stuff and I tried skateboarding and skating and BMX and all those in extreme sports. Um, it wasn’t very good at any of those, but, but I feel like tumbling is along the same lines of like that extreme sport. Like you’re putting yourself at risk, you’re in danger. And it’s that adrenaline rush that makes it, yeah,
definitely. I do get an adrenaline rush. That’s where I think now there’s so many guys involved. We coached a ridiculous
boy is even younger guys like beginners in the gym out of nowhere. I think it’s like the whole, uh, American Ninja Warrior aspect of it. It’s just cool. Um, which we would like to add like a Ninja class at some point and more than under hundred block, I think. I think, uh, cadenas would be good at teaching that. Uh, but anyway, it’s, uh, it’s something that I love watching kids get into, especially boys just because I can relate to it. I started out at Scaly, they tried to get me to do a back walkover and I remember like I had my hands like on my head so my head like crushed my fingers and I just not to mention the pain in my neck. Oh I still, that was gymnastics though, you know. Um, but anyway,
no colon joining the cheer team. Did, did you ever get made fun of for being a male cheerleader?
I, you know what, I came in at a perfect time. I did. Yeah. Cause I was the first one in my class to become a male cheerleader. I know that you and Casey were in your grade the first well and events even before me, there were some. They were. Okay. Okay. Okay. Um,
so Jeremy Delay, he really laid the floor work for, for us to like cheerleaders in big spe by, you had it perfect cause then it was like me, Casey, there were like five of us.
Cool. If you, if you come to our stunt class, you’ll meet Michael Morton. We cheered with him, Jenks tumbling lessons, all his whole time in, in high school. He was a grade older than rusty though. Jenks tumbling lessons, and he was well known. Everybody knew he was a really popular kid. And so if Michael then you, you’re going to, you’re not going to be a happy camper.
You talked to Marie Claude started class. He will, he will account our success to him because he had our back in high school.
We didn’t get our face pounded in because Michael kind of made sure that didn’t happen.
There was one guy at lunch who tried to make fun of me but you actually know, brings his daughter to her classes. So it works.
Really, that is awesome. I mean it, it comes down to maturity level. To be a cheerleader, especially a male cheerleader. Um, you, you kinda just have to definitely have thick skin because people are gonna say things, especially, especially those, uh, those guys that have played football or baseball their whole entire life and they don’t know anything but baseball, football, wrestling, basketball, you know. Um, and, and that’s okay. We can teach them how to do a back flip too. Cause you know, deep down inside they want to, they want to be able to do that. Uh, so anyway, this has been a fun episode. We wanted to kind of do something lighthearted and we will have another storytime again sometime in the future. Kind of let you guys in on the duo, Colton and rusty and a kid on us getting it down as a hand up in there. Maybe our wives as well wouldn’t be enough. Anyway.
