As Tricking is a relatively new and underground sport, you will be lucky to find a fellow tricker in your town or neighbourhood. Because of this, there are several online communities in the form of message boards to bring the international tricking scene together uniting trickers from all backgrounds and areas, the biggest of which have thousands of members<ref>[http://www.trickstutorials.com/forum/memberlist.php TricksTutorials forum member list]</ref>. You can discuss tricking, read up articles written by other members, share your videos for feedback from other members and most importantly arrange meetings or ‘gatherings’ for you to meet other trickers that live nearby. Often, because of the distance some trickers are apart from each other, these gatherings are held over several days. Some gatherings are very unorganised and basic, however there are others, such as the Loopkicks gathering, which is considered by many to be the best annual tricking gathering in the world, run by a top tricking team. Loopkicks, like some other up and coming tricking teams, trick for a living and do not have any other jobs to support them.

The actual techniques in tricking are very unique, however, because of the gymnastic elements in Tricking, there are a lot of move copied directly from gymnastics (such as the backflip), but there are many others unique to tricking, such as the "boxcutter", which consists of a 540 degree vertical spin to land on the leading leg and ending with a large outside creasent kick from the non landing leg. There are over 1000 tricks altogether and all of them have been categorized into a tricking book called the ‘Tricking Bible’<ref>[http://www.loopkicks-dvd.com/TheTrickingBible.pdf The Tricking Bible]</ref> by a well known tricker called [[Sesshoumaru]].

Tricking (not to be confused with [[free running]] or [[parkour]]) is all performed on a flat surface, never off height or on trampolines. Unlike Freerunning or Parkour, Tricking is actively discouraged to be practiced on concrete or hard ground due to unnecessary risk of injury, as Tricking is about linking tricks together in a combo, rather than about the single movement seen in Freerunning and Parkour. Because of this, trickers often train on plyo or grass.
