Showing off can be fun.

Action without thought is like shooting without aim.

Advising is easier than helping.

They're just jealous that they can't do parkour. Haha. Just keep training, let the haters hate.

Don't worry to much about it bro, it happens to all of us.
Weight training alongside parkour always benefits, it never takes away.

All I get are nice old ladies who think it's just great that I'm doing "whatever it is that you're doing," then I smile, explain it briefly, say "thanks, have a great day," and keep training.

I love Santa Rosa.

I can relate to this completely.  Everyday I go to my favorite park to trick, and sometimes there's people there they tell me to stop showing off.  I get so pissed off in side, I'm doing tricking for myself, not showing off to you!!!   >:( >:(
Tricking is beast, you should try it.

Next time someone approaches you and says you're showing off, do I what i do:  Throw your arms above your head and howl like a gorilla as close to their face as you can get.

That always works for me when it comes to gawkers, guys at the mall selling cellphone plans, or people complaining about doing parkour in public places.  I sometimes run away or past them for good measure...just incase the "fight or flight" reflex kicks in and they go to fight.
Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

People actually don't do this to me anymore, probably because I don't even acknowledge they're there. You should just ignore them then you'll just get looks and those don't bother me at all.

The people who think I am showing off is usually my school mates and only sometimes adults, but when people confront me telling me to stop showing off I tell them... I am practicing a disipline called parkour and I take it very seriously, if I wanted to show off you would know it.
The adults usually go away but when the want to stay and argue I just tell them they're welcome to watch.

33 God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect.
34 ...he sets me on my high places.
37 you enlarged my path under me; so my feet did not slip.
