There have been a lot of videos coming out of Florida over the past week.  I encourage everyone to go check out Caleb's "Not Sleeping Now", Victor's "Floating Through", and "Embrace. Let go. Live. Train!" from Joy-Marie and Tara.

Even though I don't currently live in Florida, going home to visit and train with all my friends was a blast and I'm excited to see the community growing healthy and strong.

This video was put together by Ant, my best friend and one of my favorite people to train with.

A short run at an apartment complex in Tampa that I've been eying for some time now.

A couple weeks ago, some of the traceurs from Overflux gathered in Tampa for a small jam.  Spring break was kick-started with people from Tampa, Orlando, Tallahassee, and Atlanta coming together to have fun, crack jokes, and eat burgers....maybe some parkour too.  Below is the little footage that was collected.

I had some footage laying around so I put this together.  Just some training in different environments over the past several months.

Parkour And Freerunning / The Roots of Methode Naturelle
« on: June 06, 2009, 11:18:10 AM »
It is true, the MovNat Natural Movement Coaching System finds its roots in “La Methode Naturelle”.  But where does Methode Naturelle come from?

The Internet makes many people believe that everything they need to know about anything is available online in a few clicks, but this is often not the case at all.

You have heard of the old French physical education method and its founder Georges Hebert thanks to the Men’s Health article about MovNat, maybe thanks to little bits of information available on the internet which are more-often-than-not grossly inaccurate, or maybe because of some improbable video clip randomly labeled “Le Methode Naturalle” (spelled incorrectly) uploaded by overexuberant teenagers who despite knowing so little about it cannot resist the temptation to draw attention to themselves by trying to look cool…

But how much do you know about the whole story, the real story? How much do you know of about the history of physical education?

According to the legend, Georges Hebert traveled the world as a young French naval officer, met indigenous tribes and observed these populations living a natural and ancestral lifestyle. Upon his return to France, the legend goes, he then simply devised his method based on his observations.

Well, that is knowing very, very little about the true genesis of Methode Naturelle. The truth is actually much more complex than the simple legend, and very interesting too.

Read Erwan Le Corre's article on the history of Methode Naturelle:

On September 10th 2008, it will have been exactly five years since I began practicing Parkour.

This video features a selection of clips from all of the footage I have recorded during my training so far and the vast majority will be familiar to those who have seen my other videos. I wanted to put together something to look back on in years to come that reminded me of the first half decade.

There is a lot of footage I've never seen in there that just reinforce how precise he is.
