What do you know about 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."[1] 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".

Tricking has only recently[when?] come into its own as a recognized activity. Although the various skills practiced in Tricking have existed much longer, a variety of theories have been put forth as to where the term originated. Tricking came about when people began to use Martial Arts as a via for entertainment and performance in America. Members of the original Ernie Reyes West Coast Demo Team pioneered this movement when they began to incorporate music into their creative forms, branching away from traditional martial arts. As more Martial Arts practitioners were gearing more towards entertainment, performance, and creativity, advanced body movements such as the 540 began to emerge. Although Steven Ho may have been the first person to perform the 540 in NASKA, it was being done by Erni
