What is a thief vault? (Everyone answers this differently and it amuses me.)

How'd you get such perfect handstands?  Any special tips (besides practice, practice, practice)?

Name five books every traceur should read.  Please state why and support your claims with well-sourced and cited evidence.  :P

EDIT: Ooops... too many questions.

What would you say is the most important aspect of your training?
Do you have a favorite city in which to do parkour?
What is your absolute favorite thing about parkour?

If you had to name yourself as a species of monkey, what kind would it be?

Where do you see the parkour/freerunning community in 10 years?

What was your most embarassing parkour-related accident?

Travis, I trained with you once in Michigan and you were constantly talking about the importance of footwork toward flow. How did you develop such good footwork?
Also, was the "shades" look influenced at all by NYPK's own Exo? :P

Sprints or long runs?

How much time have you put into learning flips and other movements like that?

Do you think traceurs will become the next presidents and politicians or the like?

There are times when you want to break down and rage at the heavens. Don't. Stay calm, and let the emotions flood in, accept them and then rise above them. Never dwell. Don't fear or worry. Anything worth thinking about is worth talking about. And... Good luck.

Why do you train parkour?

When faced with the stress of a life-threatening engagement, we don't rise to the occasion, we descend to our level of training.

What's harder: training yourself or teaching parkour?

Tell us a story about teaching.

Where haven't you traveled for parkour that is on your wish list?
