Martial Arts Tricking

Let's move on to a new interest, yes?
I see Martial Arts Tricking as sort-of like a sub-genre of Parkour/Free Running. I've been doing it on/off ever since I started Free Running, I'm not great at it in the least bit, it definitely takes a lot of training to get truly good at it, but it's definitely a hell of a lot of fun.


Martial Arts Tricking: Tricking (martial arts tricking) is the informal name of a relatively new underground alternative sport movement, combining martial arts, gymnastics, and other activities to create an aesthetic blend of flips, kicks, and twists.

Now, if you're wondering what in the hell I'm talking about, check out this video c:
This video is the highlights from Team Loopkicks, one of the largest MAT teams that I know of, and it is absolutely insane.



Now if you've been inspired by this to go & try and learn some MAT, just search up YouTube, there are tutorials & how-to's galore.

Final Thoughts: People are always immensely impressed watching me/others do even just the simplest MAT moves. It's fun, a great workout, and will definitely impress the ladies ;)

Hah straight out of Tekken! Eddie and Christie, it's true! Anyhoo.. I think I'd rather learn a bit of gymnastics or actual martial arts before hitting up a tutorial. Wouldn't want to land on my spine or anything.

Those guys are so intense... I see some people in the park by my house attempting some of this stuff, but they're not very good haha especially compared to these guys.

That looks like way to much for a guy like me thats over 6ft. tall lol.

Jack said...

these people, and many parkourists, have something beyond skill. They have a mastery of their own functions, their own inertia, essentially a mastery of the physical world around them. God, what i'd give to be like them.

Much more like sync dance than a martial arts. Tricking is quite nice, but has only a little to do with real martial arts methinks.
