How come you're not Batman yet?

Got any more tips on developing amazing balance?  Maybe a good progression for rail-balance?

Is parkour more mental, physical or spiritual in your practice?

Love ya brudda!

Ooh boy here we go.

Why are you so cool?
Who gives better hugs; you or Andy Keller? I hear he gives good hugs.
If you could combine parkour, juggling, stunts, TKD, and whatever awesome things you do into ONE activity, what would it be called and how would it be done/performed?

Zac,

What are some of the big things you took from your Martial Arts background into your Parkour training. Mindsets, movements, whatever?

Do you recall any favorite movement in your first couple years of training, versus any favorite movements now?

What is your favorite color?
What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Will you give me a hug the next time I see you?

Why aren't you purple?

What is your favorite food?

that is all.

Do you remember teaching me wallflips at acro like  2-3 years ago?
That was my first time meeting another person interested in movement.

Does time exist? explain...

You do a ridiculous amount of awesome things, organize ridiculously awesome things, and build strong communities, How? Why? What is the hardest part of that, and how do you balance it all?

How has your vast national travels for Parkour changed or affected your training or ideas?

As a fellow Zachary, I feel I can ask this question:

Why end with just the "c"?

Additionally -

Do you prefer to learn a movement first, then work to perfect it or learn as much as you can and then perfect it later?
Red pill or blue pill?
Operation Valkyrie or Center for Boxxy Control and Restriction?

That is all...as you were. :D

Oh, and when are you coming to the great state of Wisconsin again so that I can meet you in person???
With great power, comes great responsibility.

You do a ton of work for APK, the community, and your school work/personal life.  How do you find time to balance all those together, and what keeps you motivated to do them everyday?

How many times have u seen a boxxy video?

Have you ever been particularly scared leaning or preforming a certain movement?

What is one of your goals in life?

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
