Can You Even Do This in Fighting Games?

Tricking has been called "the most extreme martial art". That's for good reason. What's tricking? It's a combination of an array of martial arts with gynmastic flips to create a truly spectacular performance.

    Looks like Eddie and Christie from the Tekken series

    So basically what Jackie Chan has been doing since the 80s?

      Not quite. It's what happens when kids grow up watching Jackie Chan and not understanding "movie magic" like wires, multiple takes, and special effects.

      It never ceases to amaze me what people can achieve once they believe that it should be possible.

    less action then KOF corner juggles.

    Way too jumpy and spinny for my taste... But they're a performance art, so they don't need to worry about efficient movement.

    "don’t even seem possible in video games! Yet."

    Been doing it in games since at least '91, a la Blade Kick.

    Looks fancy, but not greatly practical. Imagine getting a checking kick in the middle of one of those spins...
