My mom always wants me to wear a helmet lol

ME TOO! I'm like seriously? You can't do parkour with a helmet. I imagine JD from Scrubs with his hairmet doing a cork off of a dumpster...no, it just doesn't work like that.

Sometimes I feel like I should be wearing a helmet. And gloves. And kneepads. Hell, I shouldn't be training in any less than full body armor!

But really, I'm in the barehand camp. When I first started training, I had to build up callouses. Then my wedding ring ripped a calluos off when I was doing monkey bars. So I took my ring off to train. Now, though, I feel like I need to train with it on, as it is a part of my natural environment, and you should be training as you live.

Landscaping work is a good way to build up the callouses, too. I'm redoing my yard, barehanded (with a small rototiller and rake).
Age is just another obstacle. Get over it.

I have a terrible feeling that when I start training again, my squadron's going to require me to wear a helmet and so forth. :L
