Martial Arts Tricking is a creative acrobatic discipline, combining flips and off-axis rotations with jump kicks; it's extremely popular, impressive, challenging, and fun! Cinematic Martial Arts is designed specifically for instructors to implement a safe, consistent, and cohesive tricking class at their facility. No crashing, spotting, special equipment, or tricking experience is necessary!
How Does Cinematic Martial Arts Work?
All techniques are approached with safety as the highest priority. Progressions are designed to be learned without crashing.
Teaching is communicated through self-awareness of the techniques rather than verbal instructions, with improved understanding.
All skills are structured by levels in progressive order. Learn new skills in order of difficulty, from standing kicks to flips and beyond.
Cinematic Martial Arts uses safe, structured progressions to eliminate fear and reduce the risk of crashing. instead of being told how to do a complicated movement such as a butterfly twist, students are equipped with the knowledge of concepts necessary to help teach themselves new skills (every new skill is built from one you've already taught them, beginning with very simple exercises). The techniques are structured into levels, with each one building towards more dynamic and difficult material.
"Cinematic Martial Arts is a systematic and organized way to learn tricking safely and successfully. I've been using Dan's system of training my students and also myself, and I've learned more from CMA than in the ten years' time I've been tricking altogether."
-Ish Payne, Martial Posture Owner & Lead Instructor
