MARTIAL ARTS TRICKING (MAT) CLASSES
Otherwise simply known as Tricking, is a modern martial art that combines acrobatic movements from several traditional sports and martial arts: Karate, Capoeira, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Gymnastics, Cheer, and Break dancing. The aim of the sport is to create an “aesthetic blend of kicks, flips, and twists.
This is NOT parkour. Our coaches utilize proper safety techniques through progressions.
