Jordan McLaughlin is a man of movement. He hones any creative movement that interests him as his art form. His main interests only to name a few are Tricking, dancing and parkour. Martial Arts Tricking is a huge part of his life because it was the only “sport” he was accepted into growing up and it helped shape him into the man he is today.
He has been training since he can remember but he only started to take his training seriously about six years ago when he realized he was talented in his capabilities. After noticing the increase in popularity of this art form he decided to teach/help others. Shortly after that he was presented with the opportunity to coach others at Motion Unlimited.
