Count yourself lucky you didn't get a concussion or killed.

Such an awesome bail!! Nice man, nice. But yeah, that WAS extremely lucky. Trying to be as good as David Belle doesn't mean you have to slip on a kong like him too  :P

thats a very similar scenario of what happened to me when i got a concussion, separated shoulder, and sprained wrist. i couldve died if a little more of the impact was on my head rather than my shoulder. count yourself extremely lucky and it definitely isnt awesomeness.

that was about an 8.0 on the cringe-o-meter.  bad bails are too scary.  you had some karma to spend on that one, luckily.

Lol, guess I should explain why it was awesome to me, One, I walked away fine(left hand slipped, stopped myself with my foot and left hand) , Two I had no more fear for that obstacle than before and proceeded to overcome it about a moment later, I felt exhilarated for once I wasn't afraid of something I bailed on, Hence Awesomeness. Kind of felt like being reborn, truly let me know that I have advanced.

"The best part of falling is getting back up again" - David Belle

I agree he was ridiculously lucky, and I also agree on the awesomeness. The fall wasn't awesome, the fact that he wasn't scared of trying it again, and that he went and did it perfectly right after. THAT is awesome.

David Belle...come on...he couldnt have coined the phrase.  He might have said it but...should we really quote him?  Good job Zujitsu for over coming.  I know you man and the fact that you picked yourself up after that...rock on.

that was vicious.  I probably would have laid on the ground and cried for a while.

Crazy bail.  Glad you were able to better yourself through it.

Be water my friend"

oh man, i remember this one bail. I was precision jumping from ledge to ledge. The ledge was no bigger then a 5 inches and about 7 and half feet. I made it. But to far backwards and fell back. It was a good 4 feet up. I fell landed on this stone wall thing and rolled off to the side and feel another foot or to. The hit my  head. the moment i did that i started laughing my a$$ off.=)

Lol i was reading stuff earlier, then was like "i need to train" so i picked up my friend and we went.

There's a spot where we can jump from a 5 or 6 foot wall over a side walk into some soft mulch.  Its nice.  Well i was going up a bench to get on the wall, and my shoe was muddy / wet, so i slipped and totally trashed my shin on the brick wall.  I fell off the bench, and began laughing.  It sucked so bad.

Awesome knot though...
