Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Parkour with Stuff
« on: April 29, 2013, 03:37:21 PM »
Increasing weights and other things for exercise is great and necessary for strength gains.

Parkour, however, is skill work and thus adding any weight or awkward thing to your environment can actually be detrimental to learning those skills as well as being potentially harmful. You're more likely to simply learn bad habbits from these assuming they don't first cause you to injure yourself.

What are you hunting with a knife? I highly doubt you do this or have been successful if you really are. On top of that if you are successfully doing this it is actually significantly less humane than a stronger weapon, seeing as you're less likely to get a kill or a clean kill and only wound or cause the animal to slowly bleed out (not to mention get yourself killed).

This isn't Assassin's Creed.

I was thinking that it would just be useful to know how to move when you have to carry something that way if you ever have to escape or chase someone down or whatever and you happen to have something with you it won't stop you from achieving your goal.

You know your a traceur when you realize if you can't mention Redbull without starting a huge argument about competition in Parkour.

Do you guys ever train while carrying things like a sand bag or maybe something to represent a weapon? seems like a good training idea to me.

Parkour / Training ideas
« on: December 12, 2012, 08:30:16 PM »
I was just looking for the different types of training people do basically I'm asking you this what do you do when you go out to train do you play games if so what do you play and how I want to try and cover what everyone's trying to achieve when they go out to train and how.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Parkour Fashion?
« on: December 07, 2012, 05:25:31 PM »
I was joking too. There's not going to be any one fashion that traceurs can agree on, it's like fads, only most of us don't give a ****. It's the art, not the clothes, that make the traceur. Even if Vibrams were more affordable I wouldn't buy them, just because I don't care. When I imagine a big ****-fest of a jam I imagine one of two things, hipsters or earthy people, and I'd prefer the latter.

The only way to identify a traceur is by his/her demeanor; if they care enough to practice, but are chill enough to take it easy, they sound like a traceur to me. Sometimes things just need to be slow so the flow can work it's way into your soul. Agreeing or not it's much simpler than it sounds.
Why don't you like vibrams?

Hehehe. So I guess you guys arguing about cold weather really need to....chill.

Keep your cool, if you will.

No need to get hot-headed.

*Receives frosty looks from everybody in the thread*

I'm sorry you guys can't weather the puns--didn't mean to rain on your parade.

Okay, I'm done.

Worst of it's when it's not even during training; many people who know me will begin doing "Hardcore parkour" whenever nearby, even if I'm trying to read or something.  >:(

Just join them

and when your training with a friend and as soon as he says hardcore parkour you know it's a race to wherever your destination is.
