A long post, but something I wanted to talk about..  Let’s be real here, injuries are a part of the game.  If we’re being honest with ourselves, most of us will sustain a major injury at some point.  Not all will require surgery, but the potential for catastrophe is there.  I’m talking about injuries that …

Because it comes up somewhat often, I felt I’d make a video explaining my perspective on flipped “vert kicks”. For me, a vert kick is meant to be a single axis trick; it’s all spin, and no flip.  Just as I view a backflip with a 1/4 twist as something different than a true backflip, …

There’s been a lot of talk recently about pop btwists..  are they real, are they just a shitty, underinverted full, and does it matter? Yes.  Pop btwists are indeed real, they are indeed shitty underinverted fulls, and it does matter. Sorta. The same goes for cork, and if you wanna get really deep into it, …

The idea is simple:  look at tricks not by their takeoffs and landings, per se, but by their rotation and flip.  What does that mean exactly?  It means that rather than viewing a cheat-9, swing-9, and pop-9 as 3 distinct tricks, view them as the same trick, a “9”, from a different takeoff or transition.  …

Been awhile since I’ve vomited my thoughts onto the page..  So here goes. I’ve found myself in a number of conversations recently about how to evaluate a tricker’s skill, in one capacity or another.  We don’t have ranks, for the most part, or a code of points that says a level XX must be able …

My people! Let’s try something.. In an effort to connect with the community more, I’ve created a snapchat account (tricktheory).  Obviously at gatherings or random sessions when I’m bored I’ll post clips, but that’s not why I’ve made this account.  I made this account because I wanna try something..  Once or twice a week, probably …

Pardon my lengthy intro. To get caught up: http://www.tricktheory.com/my-tricking-sketchbook/ September is done, and it’s time for another progress report. This project has been interesting for me.  While I try not to trick for the camera, I am certainly aware of its presence.  I try to be conscious of my current goals for this project, for …

The Sketchbook: The Playlist:  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnVKohtuhx68TlJiVofOTUJUaeDSZSXlN This playlist contains most of my sessions since July.  They are, for the most part, unedited, and contain every trick or combo I did at that session, in order (except for the first video in the playlist).  Included above, is the condensed August training video. Sorry for the wall of …

I’ve had this feeling inside of me for awhile now.  A feeling that something new is emerging in tricking.  I think a new form, or genre of tricking is about to fully mature and become mainstream.  As i see it, there are 2 main genres of tricking currently, each with their own variations or sub-genres.  …

Here’s the flipped version for you left twisters.  https://youtu.be/Jbk6La92yMo     Keenan Carr has been killing the mega-cart game for awhile now, including triples and dubdubs from it, yet hardly anyone else is even playing with the concept, it seems.  I’ve been messing with it for awhile now, and i’m finally getting relatively proficient with …
