There are no 'stunts' in gymnastics, only moves or skill that you learn to perform and compete with. However, gymnastics tricks can be used for many stunts, as they are impressive to people who are not in the gymnastics circle. Many movies or other entertainment sources use gym skills, such as tumbling (flips etc.) , vaulting (leaping over things in different ways) , and bar and beam work (swinging on a narrow bar and balancing and tumbling on a narrow, high surface). Other forms of gym are used too, such as rhythmic, with contortion and throwing and catching and spinning the five apparatus (excluding free, which is only the gymnast) , and trampolining, bouncing with even more incredible somersaults than artistic, but nothing else. All of these skills can be used in endlessly creative ways to amaze people as stunts.
