What is Tricking?
Tricking (martial arts tricking) is the informal name of a relatively new underground alternative sport movement. It combines martial arts, gymnastics, and other activities to create an “aesthetic blend of flips, kicks, and twists.” Tricking incorporates a variety of moves from different arts such as flips from gymnastics, 540 kick from Taekwondo, butterfly twist from Wushu and double leg from Capoeira. Tricking is recognizable by its flashy kicks, complex flips and twists, and its highly stylized movements which separate it from other arts. An individual who practices tricking is typically referred to as a “trickster” or “tricker”. Here is a video of Rei (one of our instructors) to give you a better idea:
