Admin: Andy K.
question: What was the first parkour vault you ever learned?

Kong/Monkey/Catpass/SDC [whichever you want to call it] in my living room! I put a piece of plywood on our couch, covered it with a blanket, and vaulted away!

Thanks for the question, and lol @ the thread.

We've trained before. :)

Yes, it was necessary. It was her special day, so I had to fulfill my responsibility to contribute to its specialness.

I am! It went really well. I can't say I learned anything in particular that I didn't already know from teaching before, but the spirit and mindset that I picked up from it was well worth it. It makes me feel good to have the backing of people I respect so much.

If you want to know anything more specific, ask away!

Question for Mr. Andy: What was the first flip you conquered and how did you learn it (on grass, in a gym, ect)?

First flip I learned was frontflips when I was way little on my trampoline. First flip on the ground was backflip. I learned it at open gym with the help of one of the coaches. Started in the pit, then Resi, than off a block, then flat ground.

Ha, well I haven't gotten to the luxurious mansions or tons of sports cars yet...  [get it? ;)]

I do work at a restaurant! And I love it. I serve and barback on weekends, and will be a bartender next summer. The restaurant is called Loxley's and has a Robin Hood theme. :)

Dear Andy: Do you play any video games?

Not habitually, though I do enjoy them. I like playing socially [with others], for the most part. Although, there tends to be a few marathons each summer when my best friend and I go all-out on a game, such as Lara Croft or Need for Speed. Good times.

Dear Andy: If you could erase one word from the ADD/PK/FR language, what would it be?

Efficiency. I would change all of its usage to ease.

Andy, are flips parkour?
 :-Sarcasm

Yes, flips CAN contribute to one's parkour training. Though flips alone do not denote parkour.

Mr. Andy, while in my solitude after i move, what would you recommend I train most veraciously over anything else?
Title: Re: Ask Andy The Admin!
Post by: Andy Keller on October 28, 2010, 10:26:18 PM
Mr. Andy, while in my solitude after i move, what would you recommend I train most veraciously over anything else?

This depends on your goals, but here's what I'd do...

Physically: Balance, agility, coordination, touch. They're all correlated. You don't need anyone to teach or coach you in order to improve in these things. I can give you sweet ideas if you need them. :)

Mentally: Control. I don't mean controlling precision in your movement, I mean controlling your thoughts, motivations, habits, discouragements. Controlling your training. In other words, learning to beat the games that your mind plays with you. You have to do this in order to reach your goals. This extends beyond parkour training, too. If you can press onward when your mind tries to tell you that your body is too tired to continue its reverse QM ascent up a parking garage, you can apply that same mindset to a school project that is as boring as Hell, California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell,_California), [with its lowly service station, beer tavern, and good supply of drinking water as the main features] or you can let it loose on a workday that seems to never end.

In essence, I want you to explore, play, learn, commit, conquer, continue, and above all, kick ass. Your own ass, that is...

:)

Glad to see someone got it. :)

I train for fun. Not a shallow "Wooo! That was fun!" kind of fun, but a real, genuine, natural fun. Maybe enjoyment is a better word. Parkour has become such a part of me that I feel most like myself when I'm training.

Sphenopalatine Ganglioneuralgia is our cool-as-ice little secret.

Do you think so Andy? 

Like I mentioned before, there is definitely an increase in parkour skills when flips are included in the training routine. But flips alone do not make a traceur.


Andy, will you be at beast coast? if yes, can i give you a man hug?

I'm planning on going! I think. But yeah, you can have any kind of hug that you want. :)

Do you prefer wearing vibrams/barefoot, prefer wearing sneakers, or like a combination of both in your training?

Most of my training is shod, but whenever I'm home or in my apartment I like going barefoot. I don't think there is anything wrong with training with shoes only, as long as adequate attention is paid to proper technique.

My shoes have to be flexible, light, and thin. Right now I train primarily in New Balance 420s that are worn through almost to my socks. I love it.

I've never worn VFFs.

What do you think?
Dear Andy,

How are you feeling?

Ryan Nicolai

First of all, do you realize you still used a sentence, which is not a question, in that post? Does that make this like.. the fourth time of doing something you criticized someone for doing once?

Secondly, "Criticism" is a form of expression, which means you are illustrating to that person the mistake they are making, and providing a feeling of ridicule towards them; see where I'm goin? So unless you are also ridiculing yourself, do you think Andy would agree that it would be a case of hypocrisy? Which, since you were talking about hypocrisy, makes it double hypocrisy? ;)

-a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings-

I do not care that I am not asking questions because I am not the one that told everybody NOT to do it, which is exactly what Syzergy had done...I know that I am not asking questions, but I did not tell anyone to only ask questions. So how in the world can I be a hypocrite?

And if thats the case, this is TRIPLE hypocrisy, not double.

True, but aren't you the one who criticized other people for not using questions, by calling them a hypocrite? That means your 'feelings' are that people who don't ask questions in this topic should be criticized, yes?

Ryan Nicolai

I try! Hopefully it shows. :)

This community has done a lot for me, so I want to give back as much as I can.

What's your favorite Parkour game to play at a jam?

I like PDQ [which I haven't played in foreverrr] and good old Tag. Also, somewhat-sorta-not-quite-parkour-but-really-close, I like climbing/bouldering challenges. They're especially fun at wooden playgrounds, doing something like starting on a bridge and trying to climb under and around without falling.

Andy, are you upset that you left last night and missed Paul and I building a two room, seven person fort in the lounge tonight?

Seriously, text me for pics :P

Are you serious? Let's build a better fort when you come home for Thanksgiving. Deal?

Andy, do you think JB has noticed how much he seems to care whether or not we think hes a hypocrite?
Do you find that funny? I do.... in a sad kind a way...

Meh, I understand where he's coming from. We all want to be seen in a positive way. :)

Greatest. There can only be one. And Duncan.

I'd be this.

Andy, a few questions:

On a scale of 1 to purple, how would you rate yourself?

Is spaghetti good?

What's your favorite color?

If you are a tree, what am I?

Thatisall.

I would rate myself as Octagonal.

Yessssss. Spaghetti is good indeed.

Blue.

You are another tree. A different kind of tree, and close to me as a tree, but not too close, but kinda close.

Jedi.

Just train faithfully and be friendly. Not much else you need to do.

I like Caramel Lattes. And some tea, but it depends.

Dear andy, Is this the best thread ever?

Nah. It's fun, but the best thread would be one that encourages everyone to train correctly and diligently. Maybe this one does that. ;)

I throw my hands in the air, yeah. No “eyo” necessary.

And maybe, but that’s too personal for me to disclose.

Photoshop. It’s actually two shots each from two separate times that I did the movement. My old camera wasn’t fast enough to get 4 shots like that. My new one is though! Canon 40D FTW.

Since I’m answering this after Christmas, I’ll say what I plan on getting in the near future. ;)

Camera gears and machined aluminum stackable vault boxes!
