Whoa, a front tuck mount!

About
An actual beam mount, and therefore the devil that apparently must be killed upon first sight, the front tuck mount is discouraged on beam ostensibly because of its risk, even though a risky acro element two seconds following the mount is apparently fine. It’s those first two seconds, though. They’re the most important.

It’s worth only a D, but anyone performing a real mount like this gets an automatic gold star from us, which is worth far more than a D.
