We checked in with the Tobias Bro’s Tricking Crew and wanted to find out a little more about them, their background and what they enjoy about tricking.
Hyper: Hey guys great to chat with you! How is your crew the “Tobias Bros” related? Are you brothers or is that just your crew name?
TB: Yea, surprisingly we are all actually brothers. Franky, Ale & Tony we train and teach at our school the Tobias Bros Tricking Academy in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Hyper: Do you each have a specialty or what are you known for?
Ale: I would say I probably known for doing some crazy combos, but I don’t normally land them for a while. When I do I’ll let you know LOUD! My Style is mostly a combination of Twisting and variations, even wrestling.
Franky: I love teaching tricking and sharing the art with other people. My favorite kick is a cheat 900.
Tony: I am the younger brother but the serious one. I’m normally the camera man on our film shoots, graphic design and art is my passion. I would say my Tricking style is mostly about kicks and twists.
Hyper: How long have you been Tricking and do you guys have a Martial Arts background?
TB: We have all been tricking for over 7 years. We all started out in Kenpo Karate, all study and train in MMA now.
Hyper: What is the Tricking & Martial Arts community like in Guatemala?
TB: The Tricking community here is great! It’s growing quickly and martial arts in central and South America is very popular. It has been fun to host events and see the new kid growing up and getting better even faster.
Hyper: That’s great to hear, we get messages from kids all around the world and it’s exciting to see what they are coming up with!
Hyper: What would you like up and coming Tricking Athletes to know?
TB: Go out and have fun! Meet other Trickers, attend events and train with your friends, its more fun that way! Learn and practice the basics, make sure you know how to perfect them and train hard! Be yourself and find your style! Don’t be a “generic” find your own path and show the world your skills in a unique way!

There are over 50 million kids in the United States. The biggest competition in martial arts schools is other sports. We have to look better, be better, than other sports. When a kid is an athlete and is a role model and is popular, that kid is going to make an impact in your school. Our other biggest competition is other martial arts schools. Our other biggest competition is poor martial arts schools. Why? They already got to our community. They gave them a poor experience. What we have to do as an industry is come together and innovate and in grass roots style, we need to be a team. Let’s be the cool school in our community. Let’s reach every kid and inspire them to do martial arts for life. Make sure that we’re more innovative, we’re better, we’re faster, we’re stronger. When people respect the martial arts athlete, our industry will change.
Original member of Team Loopkicks and pioneer of Martial Arts Tricking, Chris DeVera gives insight on what it’s like being a martial arts athlete. Chris DeVera has hosted the last 10 Loopkicks Camps.
Interview: My name is Chris DeVera and I come from Team Loopkicks in San Jose, California. I started training martial arts when I was six, but i quit when I was eight because I didn’t even like it, and then I moved to California when I was fourteen and then I saw the Ernie Reyes Action Team and then I joined martial arts right away. I’ve been training martial arts 16-17 years.
Q: What’s different about martial arts from other sports?
A: Being a martial arts athlete comes with more values than any other sport really. Sure we’re athletes, but we’re also artists. There’s a deeper meaning with what we do. What we do involves the use of our body and our body alone for the most part.
