2010 was a really exciting year for me! Finally my Nike Commercial “Human Chain” aired during the Winter Olympics. It was an honor to represent Martial Artists around the world and be featured along side such great athletes including Lance Armstrong. Between performing in the new Sideswipe Live Show and competing in tournaments I had a lot of fun! I really feel like I improved this year more than any other year.


In 2011 I am looking forward to trying out a few new things even if it means I don’t place as high in the rankings. It will push me harder to win at the tournaments I have not been able win a championship at yet!

Check out  my 2010 Sampler!!

Do you have a YouTube video that should be on bilang.com? An awesome tricking video from the past that would be great for the “Featured Video” (right side)? Is there a video on here that has to be removed? Send me a message at tricking@bilang.com

Part 3

If you have watched Martial Arts videos from the competition circuit in the past year chances are you have seen one filmed by Zen Inc and Team 100 Percent’s Ken Warner. We asked Ken to give us his most memorable videos of 2010. Here’s what he said:

I filmed hundreds upon hundreds of performances in 2010. Here are some that really stood out as powerful or memorable in some way, in no particular order.

11. Jessica Goldman had a landmark year in 2010, and this runoffs form at Twin Towers was a landmark performance for her. I love the intensity and the crowd reaction here.

12. Sheala “Lady Jade” Miles was the ONLY 13-under competitor to win a traditional overall grands in 2010-and she did it twice. This performance shows how she did it.

13. After years of being overlooked, Sammy Smith finally made her debut on the ISKA stage. Good to see persistence pay off.

14. 2010 was a big year for Trick Battles on NASKA stages, and this was perhaps the most epic of the year. Michael Guthrie vs Austin Crain!

15. Carson Crawford finished 2010 strong with his best performance of the year. Watch out for him in 2011!

6. Kalman Csoka never fails to amaze. But this was his first stage performance since the death of his father only a few weeks earlier. Very emotional win here.

7. Austin Crain made it to the overalls with his creative weapons form, so he had to do that instead of extreme. This is probably the strongest creative weapons form I’ve ever seen.

8. Matt Emig and Austin Crain are both iconic figures in Sport Martial Arts, and seeing them perform together is breathtaking. This was their strongest sync form from 2010

9. Micayla Johnson had an amazing year in 2010, and her ISKA performance best captures the energy of her musical weapons.

10. This was a Trick Battle at the DREDNT Gathering, not a forms competition. But it’s between two of the sport’s hottest rising stars (Danny Edkin & Mackensi Emory). And what shines through here isn’t just their prodigious talent, but their awesome friendship and camaraderie. I love this video!

1. Mackensi Emory’s CMX forms runoffs from USCC. This was a particularly powerful form for Kensi, coming on the heels of three straight weeks of training at summer camp.

2. Danny Etkin’s CMX forms runoffs from the Open. This kid has a way of rallying the crowd, and it shows here the most.

3. Vincent Scarduzio’s overall grands from Twin Towers. This was his first time ever making stage, and he won. You can see all the hard work and dedication that went into the months leading up to this performance.

4. Micah Karns was so consistent all year, it’s tough to find one performance that stood out above the rest. But this one did, simply b/c it was the Warrior Cup at Sensei Sharkey’s tournament.

5. 2010 was the year Matt Emig made his comeback. And this was his first overall grands win since his injury. You can see the incredible crowd support here. This video moves me almost to tears every time I watch it.
