    Man, freerunning sucks haha. Watch the first video, it took awhile to upload so didn't get it posted when i initially made this topic. ITs true tricking. Where i live there are more parkourists than trickers so mines corrupted

    I can't really see much difference between it and free running, except that the "trickers" jump even when they don't have to.

    Also, to call this a martial art is an overstatement, since it seems to be just a collection of moves from kung fu, free running and breakdancing. Can they really make use of that stuff in a combat situation?

    edit. Okay, finished the video and I must admit that there were two guys (or the same one in two different shirts) that were totally awesome. But still.
    Northernme has left the building. But he's still watching you.

    Well, its moves based in martial arts. A lot of it is derived from Wushu, which is a martial art but isn't for actual combat, either. It originated from forms of Martial artists like Steve Terada and David Douglas, whoh incorporated acrobatics into thier forms. Then people such as Hans Wickeling, Billy Bilang and the Loopkicks kids pushed the limits of acrobatic martial arts to creat a brand new kind of acrobatics that basically centers on comboing moves with kicks, barrowing aspects of martial art, gymnastics and breakdancing.

    The parkour infected it and vice versa simply through the concept of freestyle acrobatics

    as a free-runner, i can tell you that free running does have a purpose. it seems as though tricking(?) is kinda like free-running, except more flashy/less useful. i dont really see how it can be considered a viable martial art though...

    I would guess that it's kind of like Capoeira, i.e. you use your superior agility to catch the opponent off guard.

    right, thats kinda what I saw. I've always wanted to try capoeira... nobody teaches it around me. ive always wondered if its really an effective martial art.
