Why is gymnastics called ‘the basis of all sports’?

The first head of the main screen of the Korea Gymnastics Association homepage begins with the phrase ‘BASIC OF ALL SPORTS’. On US health sites, the phrase ‘Gymnastics—The “Mother” of All Sports’ often pops up. This is to emphasize that gymnastics is the basic exercise of sports. (Refer to Bon Kono Episode 851, ‘Why Do I Say ‘Gymnastics’?’)

At the Olympics, the general public admires world-class gymnasts performing high-level performances on vaults, parallel bars, and trampolines. The performances of gymnastics stars give dreams of being able to do somersaults. Of course, ordinary people who have nothing to do with gymnastics do not have to become Olympians. 슬롯사이트

Children who jump on a trampoline will soon be able to somersault or jump from a sitting position to a standing position. Children who play parallel bars are tempted to balance. Children playing iron bars in the playground want to cling to them or climb into the air. Simple gymnastic exercises allow you to master new movements while creating patterns of muscle movement in a very natural way. Gymnastics is the ‘basic of all sports’ and is why it is called the ‘mother’.

Gymnastics teaches children how to move with confidence and competence. Better than any other sport. Not only is it a great sport in its own right, but it is also an ideal springboard for all other sports. This is a fact recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Gymnastics teaches basic movements and sports skills that are at the heart of all other sports. Basic motor skills include skills such as climbing, swinging, balancing and landing. It allows you to develop the ‘ABC’ of athletic skills such as agility, balance, coordination and speed.

Consider an athletic beginner who wants to learn to ski, snowboard, surf or speed skate. If you did gymnastics as a child, your risk of falls, injuries, and muscle pain is reduced. The human brain stores movement patterns that are continuously accessible to the nervous system during development. When you learn gymnastics skills, you acquire the general motor skills inherent in many other sports. These basic movement patterns are acquired at an early age. The later it is, the more difficult the learning process is. Preschool children are already ready for gymnastics. Touching your fingertips to your toes is a simple gymnastic exercise that you can easily perform. By the age of 10 to 12, all important gymnastic movement patterns are easier to learn and perfect, and can form the basis for almost every other sport. This is why gymnastics is taught early to young students. Most importantly, gymnastics is fun. Although it is an individual event, it can also become a team sport while competing with each other.
