I failed tumbling class when I was 5--the teacher promoted everyone in the class but me. That's why when I see these super athletes from Tempest Freerunning Academy doing flips and somersaults without bruising a knee cap, I am in utter awe (and jealousy!).
Tempest Academy just opened this month in Northridge, and it looks like the kind of place a child's dreams are made of. I don't think I could ever do what these guys are doing, but if you're interested, they are offering kid and adult classes for all experience levels. Check it out!
