Tricking is one of the most exciting sports around today! A stunning blend of martial arts movements, acrobatics and gymnastics movements!
Tricking was born in the 90s and early 2000s when martial arts competitors at various martial arts forms tournaments began using more and more flashy and acrobatic movements in their routines. Performers began drawing on techniques from Gymnastics, Taekwondo, Wushu and Capoeira to dazzle the judges. Helped by the internet and early websites such as Bilang.com and Trickstutorials.com the online tricking community began to flourish, with highly skilled trickers posting samplers and also tutorial videos on how to perform the movements.
Nowadays tricking is more popular than ever with gatherings and tournaments world wide and even companies such as Redbull hosting tricking events. Tricking is also highly visible in film and TV, with many famous trickers going on to perform stunts in Hollywoods biggest features!
