Trick Theory-01

This graphic is representative of a left twister.

This graphic shows the basic invert swingthrough tricks from each stance.  The color coded quadrants of each stance represents the approximate stance change and corresponding tricks possible by using a carrythrough.  Each quadrant represents an approximate orientation, or degree of rotation in each landing stance, and the corresponding swingthrough.  Remember, real life application of these principles will rarely, if ever, be perfect.  A degree of variance is expected.

It is worth mentioning that because all twisting elements are measured to the same point, when fully inverted, each twist moving away from the backswing (complete) has a decreasing amount of rotation.  This means that Corks actually have a full twist, while Raiz and Lotus axis tricks are only about a quarter of a twist.  When performed horizontally, these rotations become a little less precise.

Note that both webster, and gainer are represented from either foot.  Websters do not have a heavily dominant side, from one tricker to another, however gainers tend to be initiated from the outside leg, or complete landing.  Despite this general preference, a gainer is possible from a hyper landing, although is often thought of as being “darksided”.  When increasing twist, the ‘darkside’ gainer progresses into Holy Hooks and Krocs, while its neighboring GMS simply becomes a Grandmaster Twist.

Just as master swings, such as into GMS, can share certain similarities to a typical backswing, such as into gainers, Lotus swings can be performed to closely resemble both a backswing, and a darksided master, or even an inward wrap type swing from a complete landing.  While complete landings are generally thought of as straight backward landings, there are circumstances, such as with -round variations, where the landing is open approximately 90 degrees, also referred to as a short- landing, which is where the Lotus swing is initiated.

It should be noted that many of these tricks have possible substitutions, such as wraps from a hyper stance, or btwists from mega.  The chosen tricks were chosen because they represent the root invert for most of the twisting axes.
