I just finished my 2010 (Tricking) Bails and Fun video. Mostly bails, but had some fun. Gonna work on my parkour and freerunning one soon. I hope you get a good laugh out of it. :)

Good stuff man.  Your roundoff backflip is huge.

Thanks, I working towards the confidence for the double back.

Didn't see any posts about this, but any other trickers out there planning on going to the OMG11 gathering in Tallmadge, Ohio? All of Team EH in Michigan is heading down, wondering if anyone else plans on going? If you need a little motivation we have some real legends going.

And were trying to pull Vellu cause he killed it at Panda. ;)

Tricking / Re: Honestly, should i learn these?

If you learn your kicks now, they will end up being better later down then road.  They will come in handy for connecting tricks together.  If you don't learn them now, you could still do them later, but they might look sloppy.

That being said, every tricker has their own preference of what they like to do.  Some like kicks, some spins, others flips.  You don't have to become an expert in all of them, but you should at least know how to do them if you want to become a good tricker.

Couldn't have been said any better. You don't have to love every trick, because you'll always have favored tricks, but learn the basics. Plus, like already said, kicks are similarly incorporated into a lot of other tricks, ie. aerial, cork (j-step), etc. Anyways, do you wanna be the guy down the road with a brandy double back and no 540? ;)

Don't wanna get yelled at, but it's not me, it's my tricking partner Ian Cutlip. I can have one of me up soon though. I hope it helps anyways, his twists are pretty clean.

Just finished my tricking bails and fun sampler for 2010. Through most of the footage I was injured (peritoneal/peroneal tendon strain) on my right leg so I couldn't step up my corks or b-twists so I worked a lot with kick combos and tumbling. Please check it out and I hope you get a good laugh. ;)

I think flash kicks and aerials are pretty basic and look amazing. They also can definitely be put into more advanced combos.

Tricking / Re: What to learn next after the backflip

I do believe if you can find a copy of the Tricking Bible, created by Sesshoumaru which has a tricking "tree" in words that show how certain moves develop off prerequisite moves. ie. backflip to flash kick.

Check that out if you can, but I learned slant gainers and moon kicks after I learned the backflip, but I find aerials and double legs a necessity to get as soon as possible.

well I think he should flash full in back out!

Haha. I gotta work on that. ;)

I think you should do a backflip flash kick, you can land them more quietly and more comfortably on wood, the look better, and might even be easier to do than a layout.
i think it would be accepted to do in a play, the crowd would appreciate it more.
This is exactly what I do. It lands easier and it's more "appealing" to the audience.

Movement / Re: What's that one thing called? Starts with a B?

I think your vertical would be more useful in popvaults/head high kongs, but I don't see why you'd kong something head height when other vaults would make it more efficient. But blocking would be "odd" to execute in a know I think, maybe it's just early for me to think clearly. It's generally used in tumbling/tricking because of how you have to set up and put your feet first.

Good stuff!

It is indeed blocking. Instead of looking for it on Youtube though I would suggest looking for it in the Apk Search Engine next time.

Anywho, here's a link to Dogen's Tricks Blocking video.

Great stuff, I really enjoy what Tempest puts out there for us to see.

Look at the trickitionary.

Also, if you can't do Class A stuff I made a Class below it. Use it if you want.

I just checked out that video. I love it. "If you can't do a cartwheel or handstand you just shouldn't trick". Haha.

Is this from the UK? That looks like a lot of Doyle's hot spots. Anyway, great movement and flow!

That's very inspiring. I was wondering, do you have a gymnastic background, because that bar work really was nothing short of amazing. Especially loved 1:26. Keep up the work man!
