Tricking is an acrobatic discipline that incorporates everything from traditional martial arts techniques from capoeria, karate, wushu, taekwondo to flips and twists from gymnastics, and style found in breakdancing. Tricking is a creative discipline of movement expressed through aesthetic combinations of dynamic acrobatics and martial arts kicks. Tricking originates from sport martial arts where top level martial arts athletes would try to out perform each other in competition with innovative martial arts kick tricks.
Hyper teamed up with Dan Perez & Top Trickers worldwide to inspire a generation of Tricking Athletes rooted in authenticity, creativity, true understanding and execution of perfect Martial Arts Tricking Techniques. Professor Perez created the Hyper Trick School to systematically and safely train athletes in the fundamentals of tricking. He breaks tricking down into a progression of 8-levels that anyone can follow and learn. He shows you step by step how to learn kicks, transitions, variations and even create your own combinations.
Learn the terminology used to explain the intricate elements of martial arts tricks. Each level advances the understanding of the possibilities within tricking.
Learn the elements of what makes martial arts tricks from takeoffs, rotations, variations, and landings. Train progressively step by step from the ground floor to build a solid foundation.
Half of tricking are the tricks themselves, the other half is how you put the tricks together into combinations. Learn different techniques to link tricks together for limitless creativity.
Much of what is taught in Hyper Trick School applies to vertical kick tricks, however at the end of each level, one grounded invert (hands touching the ground) and one airborne invert (no hands) are taught in a logical and safe training method focused on safety first.
