video – cliff jumping

Dave Adlard, Head Coach of Funtastics Gymnastics in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, takes all his gymnasts to the lake cliffs every summer. This is great psychological preparation for gymnastics. Kids overcome fear and build confidence.

I love activities that appear dangerous but which are actually very safe. Bunjie jumping is another example.

The club record for degree of difficulty was double back tucked by coaches Derek and George. But Kaila, a Level 10 gymnast, upped the bar this year with a double pike.
