In Asia, any activity can be made extreme; in Korea, talented acrobats have turned the benign childhood pastime of playing on a teeter totter into something far more exciting and dangerous.

Watch as the acrobats launch each other in the air on the teeter totter, performing stunts with a hula hoop while in midair. This pastime isn't as out-of-the-ordinary in Korea as we might think, and is actually quite prevalent in folk village festivals.

Implications - Acrobatics can be interpreted as an intelligent blend of art and sports. These such blends have continued to time and time again produce entertaining, and visually stimulating results according to onlookers from all over the world. Companies who incorporate the extreme nature of acrobatics into their visual displays will continue to experience growth.
