  • I've come down to the L.A. school of gymnastics

  • I'm thinking of signing up my five-year-old son for calsses

  • But not before I've tried it out myself to see if it's worthy

  • Let's go inside.

  • Hello.

  • I'm James Corden.

  • Nice to meet you, Allah.

  • Hi, nice to meet you.

  • I have a five-year-old son called Max.

  • And I'm thinking of signing him up for classes.

  • Excellent.

  • But he's not going to do it, I'm going to do it.

  • Oh.

  • And then I'm going to check YOUR ability.

  • Oh god, alright.

  • Is that OK?

  • That's absolutely OK.

  • This way? Okay.

  • Alright.

  • Why have you got a thing for giant mustaches?

  • Is that for kids who want to compete with adults? They want to be in the adult program.

  • So is that why?

  • Yeah.

  • How does this work?

  • I don't know, don't use it.

  • Oh god.

  • Oh~ Here we go!

  • They are not even mustaches!

  • This is not even a mustache in there!

  • What's that?

  • I don't know.

  • That clearly says giant mustaches!

  • Is that a mustache?

  • No.

  • How can I expect my son to come to a gymnastic school

  • You cannot properly dispense mustaches.

  • If I send my son here I'm going to spend a lot of time in the parent's room

  • So I'm gonna go upstairs.

  • Hi, is this the parent's room?

  • Check out some of the parents and see if this really a place where they are called.

  • What sort of vibe happens up here in the parent's room?

  • When we're chilling out, what goes down?

  • Hanging out is my little part. I just lay down a fewgerbombs for the moms and dads

  • Look at that, my man looks like he had a Jägerbomb last night.

  • Look at those eyes.

  • Do you ever re-enact the scene from "The Graduate" you know

  • Where Dustin Hoffman's banging on the glass.

  • You've never done it?

  • Hi, guys.

  • How are you?

  • Hi, James.

  • Hi James, I'm coach Heather.

  • Hi, coach Heather.

  • You ever done gymnastic before?.

  • I have not.

  • Come over here and let's make two lines.

  • Open legs, hands on the floor and open your legs AS BIG AS YOU CAN.

  • Now we're going to balance on one foot.

  • Don't move.

  • Now we're going to grab the inside of our one feet and lift one up in the air.

  • Here we go! Both of them.

  • Alright that was great, I'll see you later.

  • Oh, that wasn't it.

  • Crushed it, we totally beat them.

  • Big kick over.

  • Alright, alright.

  • There we go.

  • TEN, TEN.

  • DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS! Or someone told you that?

  • I think they've been smoking marijuana.

  • Not bad, not bad.

  • This is unique and that's what the judges look for.

  • So this is the chalk for your hands. Yes.

  • My son will immediately put that chalk in his mouth. So I'm just gonna make sure....not great

  • Right, are we checking.... Up, go

  • Look at that, look how high that is.

  • This is not what I had in mind.

  • No, you're not gonna get me!

  • No! No!

  • I feel like I'm getting the praise that you guys are getting from coach Weather.

  • What do you think?

  • Why do you think I'm struggling in the gymnastics?

  • Because you're rubbish.

  • I'm asking amother question to you.

  • What have I been...what have I been really good at?

  • Malik, is there anything that I have been good at?

  • (Silence) Yelling and shouting.

  • OK. I'm glad we had this chat. Guys, let's get back to it.

  • That had been really good for all around confidence.

  • Doing a couple of jumps and fliping.

  • I'm not flipping.

  • I'm actually quit happy in here.

  • This is the best place you could ever be.

  • I'm so happy.

  • I can't get out.

  • That's not helping!

  • I lost my phone.

  • I'll give $10 whoever finds my phone.

  • Go, get in there.

  • Little did they know

  • I didn't drop my phone in there.

  • Guys, it's a black iphone 7, thank you.

  • (APPLAUSE) Guys, you all do fabulous today. Good job, alright.

  • And for that you guys are all getting medals.

  • You did a special good job.

  • Good job, you do everything so good.

  • Maybe next time.

  • WHAT?

  • Well, no, the whole thing is rigged.

  • The system is rigged.

  • There is doping going on here and I'm not interested in it.

  • Do you think my son would get a medal if he came?

  • If he did a cartwheel, yes.

  • Okay, I'm gonna work on that.

  • Thanks guys, it has been great fun.
