Professional Coaching for Tricking Athletes

Not everyone who can do tricks can teach them to others. Learn from an instructor with over 20 years' experience, and more than a decade working solely as a tricking teacher!

Hi I'm Dan Perez

As a teacher I am known for the unparalleled depth and detail in my breakdowns. Are you a top-tier super athlete? If so you probably don't need my help. I excel in matching realistic skill progressions to regular humans who don't have springs for legs. I can help you learn tricks safely and consistently, without crashing.

"When my son Aidan first started learning tricking, we found that he was held back by the constant crashing. In Dan Perez' world tricking is completely different. Every move is broken down, & most of the time there's no crashing at all."

-Simon Lok, parent of SAG actor & karate/tricking athlete

How is Teach Me Tricking Different?

Teach Me Tricking is not a collection of tutorials; it's tricking lessons. Each video is like taking a class with me, where we'll walk through the skills and learn in a progression so you can determine where your current abilities are. In every lesson I'll offer multiple options for you to customize your training based on whether you find the material challenging or easy. I'm not just giving you 'tips' or sharing what has worked best for me. I'm guiding you through the process of how to get your body to perform new movements. Telling someone how to do flips is a nice fantasy, but in reality you need tangible instructions you can realistically follow. Here are things you will not hear me say:

See for yourself what Realistic is like:

Land successfully, learn safely, build consistency.

"Dan Perez is a uniuqely gifted tricker and martial arts instructor. He is world-renowned as a leading expert in the discipline, as well as one of the only tricking athletes who can perform all his moves on both sides."

-Jefferson Lewis, professional stuntman & veteran tricker

Learn Tricking with Structure

Teach Me Tricking is based on my Cinematic Martial Arts program; it's a structured curriculum for learning tricking with levels like in the martial arts. There is no special equipment, spotting, or crashing required. Here's how it works: you start at Level One. Everyone does, because Level One is a framework upon which students learn to build trick-ING (as opposed to individual tricks). There is no time limit. You can move through each level quickly if it's easy, or take your time otherwise. After you've made your way through the material you can record (on your own time, wherever you train, with as many retakes as you want) your Level One tricking test. Submit for review & feedback and just like that you've unlocked the next level while improving at tricking!

Learn Tricks. Level Up.

What Do The Levels Cover?

Levels 1 & 2


Levels 3 & 4


Levels 5 & 6


"Cinematic Martial Arts is a systematic and organized way to learn tricking safely and successfully. I've been using Dan's system of training my students and also myself, and I've learned more from CMA than in the ten years' time I've been tricking altogether."

-Ish Payne, Martial Posture Owner & Lead Instructor
