Camp Coordinators
Chris DeVera Chris DeVera is one of the founding members and leaders of Team Loopkicks who began his training in the martial arts in 1988 and received his blackbelt in the year 2000. He is widely considered a pioneer of our sport. He went on to compete and perform around the world as a member of prestigious teams such as the Ernie Reyes Action Team, Team Straight Up, and the original Team Sideswipe. Since his untimely knee injuries back in the early 2000s, Chris redirected his energy toward teaching and coaching. Chris was the Head Coordinator the first 10 Loopkicks Camps and is currently overseeing the production of the event. He has influenced thousands of Trickers, some of which have climbed to the top of our sport and community. Youtube Video
Isiah Flores In 1999, Isiah Flores gathered six of his fellow Karate classmates to try and copy the high flying moves they would see in movies and videogames like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, and Street Fighter. He came up with a name for the group when he was simultaneously looping his arm while strumming a guitar and kicking a bass drum. “Haha! Loopkicks!” Starting out as the team’s first camera-man, video-editor, graphics and web designer, Isiah is now the our creative guru, utilizing his skills and insight as a filmmaker, musician, and artist. He is also the founder of FRCTYL Films and Records, a production team made up of some old and new members of the team. Please check out his feature length Tricking Documentary from 2013!

Khang VuWe remember young Khang as a goofy local tricker with a lot of potential back in 2006 that would kill it at the holiday sessions we threw. He later joined the team in 2009 and became a crucial member of the team. In 2014 he became a member of the Triple Cork Club. Few people are as passionate and devoted to Tricking as Khang. He is extremely well rounded and can’t stop spamming kicks and dubs. His experience as a Taekwondo Instructor and Gymnastics Coach adds to his teaching style and Tricking arsenal. He is currently one of the main instructors on the team and continues to push himself as an athlete and a coach. Youtube Video
Ryan JanduWhen Ryan attended the very first Loopkicks Camp as a newbie camper in 2004 at the age of 16 he was only a tricking fan who could only aerial and cheat 720 (aka540 hook). This experienced pushed him to train and become involved in the community and eventually teach. After training as a student under Chris Jensen and Chris DeVera, he joined the team roster in 2006. As supporting staff of Loopkicks Camp, Ryan focused his energy on making sure the campers are having as much of a good time as he had. He began helping Chris run the camps after 2011 and became the new Loopkicks Camp Director in 2015. Youtube Video
