• Unified:  This term describes landings and takeoffs as using both feet simultaneously.  When used to describe a transition, it means that either the landing, takeoff, or both the landing and takeoff of the transition uses both feet simultaneously.
  • Vanish:  A sequential transition in which the landing and takeoff follow the same sequence.  Vanish can be likened to walking.  (Basic / Advanced)
  • Variation:  Performing any trick in a way that deviates from its base skill.  This often means the addition of a kick or grab, or a specific alteration of the movement to enhance the aesthetic.
  • Vert Kick:  A kick delivered with no major degree of inversion.  The performer stays upright throughout the entire trick.  (Vert Basics)
  • WackKnife:  A variation on the Jackknife where the rotation between the first and second kicks is removed.  Upon hitting the target with an inside kick, the performer rechambers the kick while simultaneously chambering and executing the outside kick to the same target.  This is almost always accomplished by using inside and outside crescent kicks which allow the hips to to stay open and fixed while the legs are in motion.  This is both a specific vert kick, as well as a variation type on both the vertical and inverted axis.  In some versions of TKT, the wackknife suffix is used to note a true-hyper inside kick that lands in a frontside stance.
  • Whirlwind:  A variation on the Fei Long pattern, where the performer spin an entire 540 degrees of rotation (Hyper + Gyro) between the outside kick and inside kick, rather than the standard 180 degrees.  This term is almost exclusive to TKT users.
  • Windex (Windex Swipe):  A slang term for a raiz hyper-hook.  Commonly understood as a swipeknife without a swipe.  As such, many trickers choose to shorten the term to simply Windex, to avoid any confusion.
  • Wrap:  Also known as wrapthrough, the wrap has many meanings.  As a transition, wraps are a often understood as a swingthrough into a sideflip.  The wrap term is also used in vert kicking to describe a cheat takeoff from backside stance, as well as to describe typical cheat takeoffs that rotate on the ground past what is typically accepted.  This term is not without controversy, though it is widely used and accepted within the community.  (Basic / Advanced)
  • X-Out (X):  A variation and position in which both legs are kicked out into a straddle position in-air.  This variation is generally reserved for inverted tricks.
  • Zoot:  Related to getting high, generally from marijuana or ‘dabs’.
