For tricking KARDO is an opportunity to make yourself known to the whole world, to show the best athletes of our direction and to familiarize everyone with our culture.
For KARDO tricking is the world level battles, where the finalists, by the level of mastery of their bodies and the audience, by the emotions in the stands are worthy of the Olympics.
Tricking is a fresh take on the boring and dangerous. Since the 90s, most martial arts movies and TV series have featured masters performing elements of tricking. Since the noughties, Tricking has been taking over video hosting and file sharing sites with the caption "What are these lunatics doing". Tricking could be seen in demonstrations and shows. And it is a separate, young, dynamically developing culture, uniting a huge number of people around the globe!
Originating among martial arts athletes, tricking quickly became an independent trend and attracted to its ranks all those who appreciate the beauty and complexity of movement, whether they are gymnasts or b-boys, capoeiristas or traceurs, students of Shaolin school of kung fu or taekwondo.
The freedom of creativity, the honing of style, the search for new moves, and the battles to determine the best are all integral parts of tricking and are closely tied to street hip-hop culture. Add a dash of Eastern philosophy of self-discovery through constant physical practice and discipline, and you have a community of amazing, strong, and free-spirited people.
PHILOSOPHY OF THE DIRECTION
Continuous development. Whether it's a desire to make an element or combination harder, cleaner, or add something conceptually new. The development of the body, mind and spirit comes first
Freedom of expression. There's no clear frameworks as to where tricking ends. You can use absolutely anything you want. There are no limits, they only exist in your head
No kicking - No tricking. Certain elements of tricking have spread widely among different sports. Even in aerobics, people already do cork. But it is the kicks in combinations and rotations that make it clear that we have a tricker in front of us! And no matter how far we go, we stay true to our roots
Community. The tricking community is the only one that truly knows how many tears, sweat and blood have been shed over every move that "looks so easy". This community is as supportive of each other as possible, regardless of athletic level, skin color, religion, etc.
Culture. Starting with the behavior on the mat, where it is obligatory to take off your shoes and make sure not to bump into anyone during the session, and finishing with a handshake after the battles
