How Does Cinematic Martial Arts Work?

Cinematic Martial Arts is a structured curriculum for learning tricking with levels like in the martial arts. There is no special equipment, spotting, or crashing required. CMA 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 toward more dynamic and difficult material.

CMA Features:

Safety First

All techniques are approached with safety as the highest priority. Progressions are designed to be learned without crashing.

Realistic Teaching

Teaching is communicated through self-awareness of the techniques rather than verbal instructions, with improved understanding.

Stratified Techniques

All skills are structured by levels in progressive order. Learn new skills in order of difficulty, from standing kicks to flips and beyond.
