Whoa, a front tuck mount!

About
An actual beam mount, and therefore an endangered species, 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, which is worth more than a D.
