Dan Perez of Aeriformmat.com, Cinematicamartialarts.com, Hyper Trick School, and Joining All Movement (JAM) in Las Angeles demonstrating his swingthrough prowess on trampolines. The original video was taken from Mr Perez’s Aeriformmat youtube channel, and the techniques and landing stances were added by the Grump as a teaching aid.
In the first graphic the common invert swingthrough axis from each stance is labeled. 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.
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, and this 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.
The second graphic works approximately the same, indicating the common swingthrough axis from each landing. Notice the circular black arrows note the direction of rotation, for trickers on either side to read.
A handy graphic for understanding some common swingthroughs, carrythroughs, and vanishes from each of the landings as well as their relative position in relation to stance. Understand that not all of these transitions are equal in difficulty or practicality, nor are they the only options. This graphic is meant to illustrate possibilities, as well as relationships between stances and the ability to move from one landing position into seemingly unrelated tricks using different transitions.
Note that the btwist axis tricks can always be substituted for aerials, although not specifically labeled. Likewise, in place of GMS, wraps can be applied, among other possibilities. The included tricks are there purely for simplicity’s sake, and were chosen because of their minimal twisting value. This graphic is meant to teach a concept, not every possibility.
