"A.D.A.P.T. Parkour & L'art du Deplacement"

Seeing members of the Yamakasi in physical pain is a frightening thought.  :P

I liked the video's straightforward and serious nature. I think its a pretty succinct explanation of parkour, and how it started.\

You might have to nearly rival the founders in physical stamina and strength.

I think that having a strictish certification process is good but I heard that the A.D.A.P.T. is just crazy hard..
A bad traceur does a move untill he gets it right. A great traceur does it untill he is not able to get it wrong.

From what I heard it is very challenging as it should be. To quote the video:

"ADAPT is designed to communicate not only the specific methods of training and technique of the discipline, but also the spirit and  core values of the art that have made it so popular. The certification course is rigorous and exacting in order to ensure every ADAPT instructor conveys a standard of excellence as he or she represents the art."

Clearly ADAPT certified instructors are not, and will not be the only representatives of the art, but the founders want to make sure that people who they certify as qualified instructors will be good instructors and ambassadors for the discipline.

Wow, I have a new goal.  I've always thought about being a teacher, and Parkour has become my passion.  This would be THE way to combine the two and do something I really love.  Thanks for posting this.

I'm going to have to train like never before.

I just love the quote from Yann. I posted it once, but I'll post it again.

"The Art du Deplacement? Live for others and give of yourself. Its the culture of the impossible. It means overcoming yourself, and our sport manages to link these two things."

To explain Art du Deplacement, he doesnt begin with speaking about movement. He speaks of the importance of hard work and self sacrifice. When you stop to think about that, it is really a pretty powerful statement.

I hear you.  I love teaching things in general (I'm totally an amateur teacher, though :P) and something like this would be completely awesome.

The Yamakasi are also founders of parkour. They were David Belle's friends back in the day, and they all trained together, working out the art as a team.

Notice that the Yamakasi consider pakour, le Art de Duplacement, and freerunning as the same. It's something I like to point out when people get into those debates as to which is which.

And yeah, A.D.A.P.T certification rocks. :)

I'm not sure if they do at this moment, but certainly that is the ultimate goal with Stephane running things in PKGen Asia. Keep your eyes open and I'm sure opportunities will arise!
