I myself am a gymnast, and when I first became interested in the martial arts, I immediately gravitated toward a more solid, grounded art. I love doing gymnastics, don't get me wrong, but simply because both gymnastics and MA require great physical conditioning, doesn't mean that the two are easily intertwined. I think some martial artists could benefit from some basic gymnastics training, such as with back handsprings, which cover a great deal of distance with minimal effort, and still leaves your opponent in your view, but flash kicks and roundoff double backs should be scored from 1-10, and shouldn't find their way into a MA tournament. and powercheerleading is nowhere near gymnastics, please don't insult my fav. sport.
