Does the trait "Flanking Strike" in the trickery line count towards weapon skills with a "flanking" movement attached to them; Flanking Strike (S/D) or Death Blossom (D/D)?

So say I'm face to face with my enemy, and I have the Flanking Strike trait, and I hit Death Blossom, which means I jump over his head and strike him. Does that count as a "flanking attack" ?

The same goes for the "Side Strike" trait in the critical strikes lines

any help much appreciated

Yes, an attack is considered flanking if it strikes the enemy from their side of from behind them. Leaping death blossom with leap towards/over a target and if you strike them from this position your traits will kick in.
