Certs don't always matter.

If you have experience, if you know what you are doing, if you have DONE it yourself and LOVE it....any single cert in the world will do. In the system we live in you just need one to legally train people. Who agrees with me?

I don't know if this is the right category for this question but I'll give it a go. I'm a level 10 gymnast and ever since I've been competing big skills such as double backs or full twisting double backs I've always tweaked my right ankle. The sprains are never severe, like to the point of not...
