Tricking incorporates a variety of moves from different arts such as backflips from gymnastics, cheat 540 kick from Taekwondo, butterfly twist from Wushu and double leg from Capoeira. Tricking is recognizable by its flashy kicks, complex flips, and twists, and it’s highly stylized movements which separate it from other arts. An individual who practices tricking is typically referred to as a “tricker” or “trickster”.
Morgan has been studying tricking since 2003 and is now two of the top trickers in Australia and the most qualified for teaching this sport because of their broad knowledge and experience.
The classes cater for all skill levels from beginners to advanced. Each new student is taught from the ground upon the foundations of gymnastics acrobatics, martial arts, and tricking specific tricks. Each class is categorized in age groups from 8-13yo in the intermediate tricking class, 14-17yo in the senior tricking class, and 18+ in the adult tricking class. The learning progression that is taught is structured to suit all levels of talent and the range of equipment within the Manly Warringah Gymnastics Club facilities are used to assist the development of the student’s skills.
The personal achievement of gaining a new trick is always highly celebrated by the whole group because each student knows how challenging tricking can be.
