    It's primarily gymnastics.

    If you'd read anything on the link you posted then you'd know that he trained in gymnastics since he was 9. You've got some catching up to do.

    It's all very theatrical combat related. After all that's his focus is stunts. His work is impressive. *sniff... should have stayed in gymnastics* :D

    note: when you first start in gymnastics - it's nothing like what he shows... it can seem so lame... back rolls, forward rolls etc. It takes a long time to build up the proper, safe techniques before you can move on to the more flashy stuff and most gymnastics programs are more gymnastics oriented - so you won't be learning any kicks of stunts per se. That is something you will have to work in on your own. So it can seem a tad tame at first... but if you stick with it... it can be used to great effect.

    I believe on Bilang.com quite a few of them do TKD but all the flips etc is all gymnastic.
