Hello and welcome to Tulsa tumble talk with justice tumbling company, the one and only Tulsa tumbling show where we your Tulsa tumbling experts. 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, t e a m that spells team rusty team that does team. We, I know, you know, that’s that Bixby application for it. It’s okay. It’s okay. I had to sound it out while I was reading it. Now there is no, I in team, we’ve heard it over and over and over again. Cause it’s like such an old phrase. Right? Tulsa tumbling lessons, and that is true. Do you know that there, there’s no, I in team

there isn’t, but there is a meeting,

there is an m and e which spells me. Um, and that is our topic today for our podcast.

Yes. Cheerleading is not an individual sport. It is a team sport. Uh, but you have to be a strong individual to make a well rounded team.

That’s right. You know, football, baseball, basketball, there, they’re team sports there and Tulsa tumbling lessons, nothing against them. But that, you know, if you’re a pitcher in baseball, you don’t sort of suppose that’s your specialty. Like that’s what you do. Um, it stopped about though. You do have to bat right. Uh, football I think every, not everybody tackles, but uh, you, you have to know how to catch the football. You have to throw the football, right? The quarterback is as the quarterback, right? They don’t have to be a linebacker, but in cheerleading you have to, you have to be fairly proficient in every single aspect of cheerleading. Um, and with that being said, you have to focus on your part a lot more than the team aspect of it. So you have to do a lot of individualized training. Um, that’s the me, it’s the me part. You got to focus on you. And then once it’s competition time, then we’d put it all together. And what do you got? You’ve got a team, you’ve got a routine.

The most successful teams are the teams that have a whole team squad of that well rounded athlete that can do everything. Those teams aren’t unbeatable. When you can do with the most difficult tumbling in your division and have jumps that are above average and being able to put up the most difficult stones. Those are the well rounded athletes who are going to be successful no matter what.

And even whenever we go to schools to do team tumbling, which we love, like that’s an important part of, um, of like learning. But when we’re there, we rarely focus on everybody’s skills as a whole. We lined them up in the corners and then everybody works on their own individual skill and what they need to work on. Um, so that’s another me aspect in team. Um, but they’re, they’re supporting their team, their, their, uh, as their team and getting better individually while doing so. When you get better individually, you get better as you, you better your team. With that being said, you know, our classes, we don’t have enough room in our classes to support an entire cheer squad. That’s why it’s important for you to come and get your own training in, whether it’s classes, privates open gyms, uh, our camps and clinics that we have. Whatever it might be, it’s, it’s to better you. Um, at justice tumbling company, the reason we’ve talked about it, the reason why we don’t have an all star squad is because we want to focus on individuals and what they can bring to their individual team. So we work with all star athletes. We work with school athletes, we work with athletes that aren’t even cheerleaders. We w I mean we work with tumblers that are gymnast and have no, No desire to be a cheerleader. Tulsa tumbling lessons, so, but we’re still helping them better themselves

and that’s why we did open and not do an all star program, which we’ve been asked to ask that they want to, they want it. We want to be able to work with individuals from everywhere, not just one specific gym. We want to be able to be teaching technique, just that we can work with anybody. It doesn’t matter if your school all star, college level, middle school level, anything that you’re looking for. Tumbling was

what were your three year old beginner like. You have a three. If you have a, if you have a child who’s, or it little sister or little brother whose, whose three or older, we have tiny classes, you know, but that’s all the individual aspect that self-growth, that self confidence, that self achievement, that’s what we’re, that’s what we want to achieve here at justice. Now, whenever we say there’s no I in team, um, it is important to remember that whenever you’re out there on the floor, you are a team. Whenever you’re in practice with your team and we do conditioning, this is something I bring up a lot when we’re doing the conditioning because you, you know, you’ll have like your whole team who was like hurting and they’re in pain and they’re fighting because they are a part of that team. And then you’ll have like that one that wants to just keep cheating everybody else. Like there’s always that one that brings their legs down too early or they, they sit down when they’re supposed to be doing something else. Right. Uh, and that, that is not the eye that we’re talking about. That’s not the me that we’re talking about. Whenever you’re doing those things, when you’re competing, when you’re, um, you know, at a competition and you guys are out on that floor, you guys are one, but it’s important that you do your job. You have to bring, or else what, what, what is the point of view even being there?

Yeah, that’s true. The thing is, like you said, you’re bettering yourself as an individual, but when out on the floor, um, they want everyone to look almost the same. Absolutely. Especially when it comes to the stunt, everything is supposed to be mirrored to everything that’s supposed to be just clean and perfect and trying to all look identical.

And you know, whenever you’re out, that’s okay. That’s great. That’s, that’s the performance aspect that every coach and judge wants to see. Um, they don’t want to see people standing out. But whenever you bring your new skills, whenever you bring your positive attitude, when you bring your, Tulsa tumbling lessons, your conditioning that you’ve done all on your own to that team, you make that team better. Not meaning that you’re going to stand out. You might, you might be last pass, you might have an individual like I’m standing section where your point or jumps or whatever it might be.

Or even just your energy and attitude. Brian,

bring it, bring it. Like that’s back when we were in high school. They XP Cheer Varsity One, three years, um, two years back to back. And then, uh, it skipped a year and then one again now. Um, I was part of two of those teams. You’re a part of two of those teams. Um, but the thing is is that there wasn’t a lot of skill back then. You know, I think the boys were the only ones that through full

or maybe you want to maybe one other full, I’m trying to think of him, but yeah, it was, we were clean. We had sharp Mercian’s we were loud.

Absolutely. That is the team aspect that, that, uh, judges want to see. They want to see that you’re bringing your performance, you’re bringing your a game, and that you guys can conduct it as a team. That you’re together, you’re there together, you’re hurting together, you’re winning together, you’re competing together. And that’s a huge aspect of cheerleading. But whenever you’re not together and you’re not competing, guess what you have to do? He got to do a lot of work all on your own.

And you don’t have to be best friends with everybody on here. Nope. No. But when you are in that practice and you should be a family, you shouldn’t, like you’re sweating together, you’re bleeding together. You got to, you got to man it up and warming it up,

whatever it might be, and you’ve got us through. Yep. Yep. Now there’s, Tulsa tumbling lessons, whenever you’re there and you fight through that, the negative and the positive that’s come, that comes on every cheer squad, right? Every team aspect. There’s negative and positive. Um, but whenever you win it, that’s all that goes away. You forget about all that. Whenever you’re on the winning team or even if you don’t win, even if you guys hit a clean routine, like you guys did that together. And that’s something that you will always remember is that, you know, through all of the crap that we had to deal with last year or the year before that or you know, you know, back in the day, um, we still overcame and we still did what we were supposed to do. Um, you know, maybe you don’t have the difficulty of the routine. Maybe it was, uh, judges didn’t like the choreography, whatever it was, but you guys went through it together and that’s, that’s the team aspect and that’s what we’re wanting to kind of highlight in this podcast.

Absolutely. I was sitting in church the other day and, um, I heard a quote from my pastor that like really spoke to me and it was about, it spoke to me about like our company and uh, me and rusty and our wives who are highly involved. Um, you know, sometimes, sometimes it’s tough working, working together because we’re running a business is like a marriage. And so there’s parts of it that like, um, where rusty and I disagree, it happens, but we get through it and we fight through it and, and um, we’re better because of it. But my pastor said this, this quote, he said, shared joy is double joy. So like shared success is double success. Cause whenever you’re at in a team like you, you feel that success and that joy doubled, right? And then shared sorrow is half the sorrow. So whenever you lose as a team, every single person on that team lost.

You’re, you’re not facing that alone. Um, or you know, if you’re stuck, falls, you’re not doing it, but you’re not, you didn’t fall by yourself. That’s, that’s your whole, your whole team that feels that. So it’s, I think that’s an awesome quote. Shared joy is double joy. Shared sorrow is half the sorrow. Tulsa tumbling lessons, I love that because you know, too many times it’s like you’re going through life. Nobody feels the way I’m feeling. You know, I, but you might feel alone. I know I did when I was a teenager. Um, but whenever you have that team, whenever something happens and you have heartache or you have, you make a mistake, you have, even if you guys aren’t the best friends, you have people you can fall back on who, who do care, believe it or not.
