Tricking is the informal name of a type of acrobatics derived specifically from martial arts, that includes techniques found in gymnastics, b-boying, and similar disciplines.
Examples of incorporated techniques include the 540 Kick, from TaeKwonDo, the ButterFly Twist from Wushu, and the Double Leg from Capoeira. The sport aims to create an “aesthetic blend of flips, kicks, and twists.
Tricking differs from similar arts in that expression and exploration are more heavily favored. An individual who practices tricking is typically referred to as a “Tricker”.
