I ordered some APK Combat Trainers and a Tribe Wings T-Shirt and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how long it might take them to get to South Carolina?
I don't have any idea what I'm doing, but I do it anyway.

Is there anyone who is willing to give me tips on vaults and stuff?
First off, go on youtube and search tutorials for vaults. Then what i did was practice my jumping for a while. i worked my legs for three days and they were incredible sore, but in the end they got stronger and i moved on the vaulting. Once you watch the videos and you still dont get it, ask me.

Thanks guys but i have realized something. That I can only be good to a point and then my body at it's current maturity can't progress any more and then it's just a waiting and stamina game until my body is more mature and I can improve. Wow that was deep even for me.
I don't have any idea what I'm doing, but I do it anyway.

lol, i see what u mean. Yeah, boys' bodies develop physically in their teen years, however you can learn the techniques right now. Look at all those young martial artist. Look at Taylor Lautner http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_xnmg7Eo40 (Yes, the guy from Twilight >.> ). That video is him when he was 13 i think. That's so epic sh*t right there. As far as endurance and stamina, yeah leave it for later when u grow up.

there are some links to tutorials on vaulting, if u have a single rail u can practice many differnt vaults. the easiest ones to get started on are probably lazy, monkey, gate, and speed. once u get good at these u can try doing things like monkey/kong to precision. (if u dont have a rail or something, go look around in the forest there are probably some fallen trees about waist high those should do, or u can make ur own things out of wooden boards)

Thanks and any recommendations for how to do a equine vault? Because I have a combined high-ish hurdle in my group that I have been trying them on but my program just won't do what my ideas shows it to, instead of going through my arms, my legs go around them when I tell them to go through my arms.

To do a horse program, you need to leap first. So since you're getting, you don't really need a program, lol. Try it on a waist-high challenge if you will discover any.
