In the video above, the arguably most common, or well known variations are demonstrated. Each of these is like the basic building blocks of more complex variations explored later on.
Tricktheory’s approach to a tricktionary is to avoid a list of every possible trick, but instead to familiarize ourselves with twisting axes, then the variation parts themselves. In this way, we can read tricking phonetically, rather than by visual memorization and recall. By learning tricking this way, only a few dozen parts need to be learned to read every possible trick, just as every word in the english alphabet can be created with just 26 letters. A simple analogy would be that the twisting axis, such as cork or btwist, are vowels. Vowels make the sustained sound, and are necessary for every word. Variations are like consonants; they are percussive and accent the vowels in different ways.
