Parkour And Freerunning / Having website troubles
« on: June 03, 2013, 04:57:40 AM »
I know this is not the website troubles forum but I have left this topic up over there since April and I got no response, so......

I am not getting the website to agree with me. When I try to access my profile I get a message that says I have not confirmed my email and I have not been approved by a moderator. My email address got changed a few months ago and I cannot change my email address on the website to re-get the confirmation email. How do I fix all this?

Parkour And Freerunning / Could I take it in Stages
« on: May 23, 2013, 03:26:14 PM »
Rolling on concrete

the thing everyone is scared of until they commit

So I am fine with grass, can do a roll no problem from a story up

I can do em on crash mats, Not scared there but they are a little sloppy because I have not found stiff and firm mats.

What is a good next stage, besides cement, That I can use to gain more and more confidence

Parkour And Freerunning / Problems with long falls
« on: April 29, 2013, 05:06:23 AM »
I'm having issues with my long falls. Recently I have gotten uber-good at rolls from standing position or running, or even dive rolling over obstacles. My issues spawn in drops over ten feet high. When I jump from anything under that I land on my feet, but when I jump from over ten feet I have too much momentum and lose control of the roll. This is very dangerous and I wish to fix it very fast. Advice?

Also, what position do rolls leave you in? My heels usually catch on the ground or I end up in a crouch.

Website and Forum Troubleshooting / No actual registration

I am allowed to actually post things on the forum and am considered a member here, but on the website, when i go from the home page to my apk, it says "This user has not yet confirmed his email address and account!
This user has not yet been approved by a moderator!" how do I do this? Also I just changed my email so how do I change that too? I have it registered to my gmail on the forum but on the website it still says I am under Yahoo.

Parkour And Freerunning / A few things about Parkour
« on: April 27, 2013, 10:40:32 AM »
!. Parkour is not a verb
Parkour is not a verb. When you see people doing parkour, you say they are either training or doing parkour. You do not say they are Parkouring. Parkour is about as much a verb as football is. You never say people are footballing. You say they are playing football. You do not say people are karateing. You say they are doing karate.

2. Parkour is about challenging yourself to do better even when you think you are the best
David Bell is still trying to improve himself. Don't talk to me about how he thinks a person should train 8 hours a day everyday. Parkour is about bettering your abilities no matter how good you are. If you can do a 15 foot kong, shoot for 17. When you get there, shoot for 19. The idea is to never stop improving. and yes, you can have fun doing it. Practice is what made the greats great.

3. The moves in parkour are just that
When someone says they did a nice kong or wallrun, it is simply because they have a name for that movement. Traceurs created names that would be easy to say quickly. They inputted parkour into their speech. They created universal terms for specific movements so that they would not have to describe what they did to anyone who wasn't there. They could just say "Yeah, I lazy vaulted the rail right into a kong over an air conditioner then did a wallrun up a 10 footer," and people would know what they were talking about.

I hope this cleared up some things about parkour. I used to be confused about these things and got many bad replies for my arrogance, so I thought I should sort things out. Also tell me if I made any grammar errors.

Parkour And Freerunning / Wondering average heights
« on: April 16, 2013, 11:35:28 AM »
I was wondering what an average vertical wall run height would be for a 5' 10" guy.
I'm 6'1" and get between 11' 6" and 12' every time. What's a good goal?

Parkour And Freerunning / Winter Training
« on: April 10, 2013, 11:55:09 AM »
Okay, I am fourteen with no available version of even small income, and i live in Wisconsin where it is winter 9 months of the year. I am too young to get a gym membership by myself and I need some serious ideas for training in the nine months my parents don't let me go outside in sweatpants and a sweatshirt. Help!!

Movement / Catting up
« on: April 05, 2013, 09:55:16 AM »
       So one day I found this great place to practice cat leaps and wall runs. When I get into cat position, I have no trouble pulling myself up on the first ten I do, and I am doing more and more without trouble. My problem is getting all the way up. I have been told that it is bad for your knees to use them to get up by putting them in between your arms and using them as a base, but I can't seem to find any other technique that is quick to ascend the wall. What do i do? I feel like my legs are too long or my arms are too short. I have the same problem when vaulting with my legs between my arms too. My feet always seem to catch the lower edge of what I am vaulting.
