Bounds are an extension of any of the other 3 unified transitions, where an extra on-ground adjustment is added to change the performer’s orientation or stance. Simply put, a bound is any unified transition that has an extra adjustment step on the ground before takeoff. To put it another way, bounds follow the landing pattern of a particular unified transition, make an adjustment step on the ground, then follow the corresponding takeoff pattern for the unified transition. This means there are 3 separate patterns for the Bound to take, each corresponding to another unified transition. This transition is often utilized, but widely unknown by name within the greater tricking community.
- Bounds can come in 3 forms, as mentioned: Unified landing, adjustment, sequential takeoff. Unified landing, adjustment, unified takeoff. Sequential landing, adjustment, unified takeoff. Simply put, bounds are like redirects where the landing and/or takeoff happen to utilize both feet together, rather than sequentially.
