So, this is new to me. I was impressed by all the spinning and flipping and kicking and whatnot, but I didn’t know how to classify it. It was too cool to be gymnastic tumbling, and not nearly gay enough to be Capoeira. Turns out it’s something called martial arts tricking. You learn something new every day, I guess.
This clip is part of a much longer video taken from Loopkicks Camp. There were parts that had way cooler spins and flips, but this is the section that was set to MGMT’s “Electric Feel,” and I’m powerless to resist the allure of hipster bands that have two good songs to go with their stupid hair and skinny jeans.
Anyhoo, long story short, these guys have a real future playing the action movie henchman who does a bunch of crazy kicks and flips before the good guy shoots him.
