Butterfly Kicks, scoots and RAIZ: a tricking workshop
Tricking is a training discipline that combines kicks with flips and twists from gymnastics and martial arts. Commonly called trickers, practitioners demonstrate such techniques as the 540 kick, the corkscrew, the flashkick, the butterfly twist and a cheat 540. It aims to achieve an aesthetic display of different combinations of “tricks”.
Trickers focus mainly on linking together chains of acrobatic kicks, flips and twists in combinations, or combos. Trickers train and can be found in many locations, including fields, Martial Arts dojos, Gymnastics gyms, and even public locales. One of our workshop instructors likes to shock his teachers by doing tricks on school grounds.
American Family Martial Arts is hosting a tricking workshop on Jan 26, 2019. Flying in from Ohio as guest instructor is Sam Caspio. He has been tricking for over 10 years with no martial arts or gymnastics background. He took 2nd place at Hooked, the largest European tricking event. Caspio is a professional tricker and is sponsored by Adrenaline Worldwide. Learn about this exciting organization and upcoming events at Adrenaline Worldwide.
He will be assisted by David Tullier of American Family Martial Arts. David is currently a 2nd degree black belt and the son of the school owners. David started his departure from Tang Soo Do traditional martial arts with his use of Arnise sticks. He mastered this weapon and moved on to the staff. He picked up some existing staff techniques but really took off in early 2017, after attending a seminar by Jackson Rudolph. Later in the year, he competed in a tournament in Texas and took home Grand Champion. He graduated Lee Magnet High School in 2019 and now attends University of Louisiana (Lafayette).
