Mai Murakami: Super Tumbler

Little Mai Murakami of Japan is a fantastic floor worker and bad ass tumbler.

If she were a super hero, her super-hero name would be Super-Tumbler and she would such a bad ass, she'd make the other super-heros jealous.

This video from 2012 shows little Mai training a triple twisting double layout. She's on a rod floor and she lands on a mat in a pit, but she lands upright and her form in the air is beautiful. Mai finishes and does a little happy dance for the camera that is so heartwarming.

This video, posted just a couple weeks ago, shows Mai training a gorgeous Moors double double layout. She is so high and again, impeccable form. I'm curious to see if she adds one of these skills to her routine.
