Movement / Re: Strange Rolling Occurrence

sometimes you just need to switch shoulders, depending on where you're landing and where you're headed off to after your roll. the environment should determine which shoulder you'll use.. it should be drilled to perfection on both sides so you've got it when you need it.. and you will need it.

For me, it was seeing this video.. that was all it took. I had to learn it.

I started training at the age of 33.. I didn't find it to be any problem. The folks I regularly trained with were all in their late teens and early 20's.. I'm not sure, but I think they were able to recover a little faster than me.. Other than that, no problem, once you get in shape you'll be fine. I'm 40 years old now, so it's been 7 years for me.

A couple of years ago someone posted up a video of an old black and white Zorro film, and the guy was doing moves that looked alot like parkour, including a kong among other things.. can't seem to find it on youtube though..

The Yamakasi guys put us through all sorts of unimaginable training routines. It was crazy. Yann at one point had my group do our entire set with our eyes closed. We were racing each other across these zigzag terraces with our eyes shut and MAN did that feel weird. He also made us form a big circle and two people would enter the circle with their eyes closed and have to do any kind of movement they wanted as long as it was continuous. Two coaches would be in the circle with us to prevent any collisions. That whole weekend was totally unconventional. Anyone who attended I think got a feeling of rejuvenation from  the experience it was so exciting.

As busy as they've been having traveled to Central and South America directly after our event in Ohio, and then returning home for Rendevzous 5, I could see how it would take her until at least November to get those videos ready.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: So I guess this is farewell...
« on: June 11, 2010, 11:13:52 PM »
Trust me, it's not the end of your Parkour career (most likely.) There are guys that have completely broken their legs to the point they might be amputated, had serious knee surgery, etc. and were told they will never do Parkour again, but they did. They worked at rehabilitation and staying motivated and two years and now they're some of the worlds best traceurs (they're Ryan Doyle and Tim Shieff if you're wondering.) So if you work on rehab, and if you truly love Parkour, you'll get there. You might not be able to do all the stuff you used to, but you'll get there.

Stephane Vigroux as well. Took him two years, but he got back his level with perserverance. He said it was painful, and the muscles in his injured leg had atrophied to the point that one leg was skinnier than the other.

You should talk to Brian MacLeod. He's a 50 year old who came to American Rendezvous and totally kicked @$$!
