NC Jams / NCPKJ8 Nov. 22
« on: November 05, 2008, 08:49:13 AM »
For those of you that dont check ncparkour, the last statewide jam of the season is coming up on Nov. 22.  It will be taking place on NCSU campus, with serious training starting at 10AM and a more relaxed jam atmosphere starting at 1PM.  We expect to be jamming at least until 6 or 7, and plan on getting food as a group afterwards.  The meeting place is the Court of North Carolina at NC state for both times at the moment.  Loose directions:

The court of north carolina is a giant grassy area on the map.  Hope to see everyone there!

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Rolling and Bookbags

I would recommend doing a slap-out instead of a roll.  You would obviously need to slow down your momentum a little bit, but all in all with a bookbag slap-outs are a better option.  You get to keep the bookbag on and let it remain on your back, which saves tons of time and energy.  Slap-outs are definately not as good at absorbing shock, but since you would avoid taking larger drops with a bookbag in the first place this seems to be less of an issue.

Cliff, shallotte is another city in NC.  I dont know of any hotspots in the area, but just kinda walk around and you will find something.

As for shoes, yes they are good shoes.  BUT, shoes do not make you noticably better.  Secondly, relying on parkour shoes is a bad idea.  Lets assume that you are getting chased or you actually need to use parkour for some reason.  Are you going to say "hey bud, wait while I go and get my special shoes."  No you are not.  If you feel like buying them then fine, but there will be no major difference from those shoes and normal sneakers.  If you have perfect technique, then what you are wearing on your feet does not matter, ever.
