Our story:

Tumble Smart is owned and operated by the Nicksons, Coach Levi and his wife Sarah. Levi grew up tumbling under the coaching of his Dad Leonard Nickson. At the age of 12 he started coaching with his Dad. After graduating in 2010, Levi started coaching tumbling at a popular cheer gym in Tulsa for 2 years. He felt that his coaching style differed from the culture of the gym he was at which is when he left to become a freelance coach (view pictures below). Over the next 3 years he coached at dozens of schools, parks, yards, people's garages and rented floor space at several gyms in the Oklahoma area to coach his lessons. During this time he met his beautiful wife Sarah. Together they worked hard to build up an outstanding reputation in the tumbling world. By November 2015 they were able to get enough loyal students to open up their own facilityTumble Smart Athletics, gain a big social media following and train students all over the nation through their online tumbling schoolTumble Smart Academy. Then just a year later they have been able to expand their facility from the amazing growth over the first year in business. In the mean time they were also able to add a new addition to their family, their first born Daughter Mali Rayne. They currently run their company from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
