Tricking Coach

Started training:

Oct 2008 is when my Tricking truly began.

 

Biggest accomplishments:

in terms of Tricks:
Dubdub (22)
2022
Triple cork

 

Future Goals:

I really want to land dubdubdub (222) that has been a Tricking goal for so long. I've still got gas in the tank for it so it's gonna be a fun challenge! 
My long term goal though is to just be able to trick when I'm 40+ so taking care of my body is key.

Jamal

Tricking/parkour Coach

I started tricking in April 2018 At a trampoline park called airspace. I fell in love with it instantly now I'm hooked.

My biggest achievement is Landing a double cork. Double cork was my goal when I started tricking so it feels great to stomp it.

from here I hope to keep pushing myself towards being the best I can be both as a tricker and a coach.
