Tricking / Cork s/t help?
« on: June 30, 2011, 03:13:23 PM »
This is my current cork

I want to be able to get it higher/faster so i can swing through.  right now, if i land too low to land on one leg and swing effectively.  Do i just need to constantly drill this until i build the height for it?  or am i doing something wrong technically? 

Freerunning / standing back full help please
« on: June 13, 2011, 08:35:17 PM »
Yeah, i need help.  my standing backs, i can land pretty much standing upright.  i can cork perfectly fine.  these though, i spin slow and interrupted, and i reach towards the ground too much.  help please?

Freerunning / Wall fronts
« on: February 22, 2011, 08:44:11 PM »
okay... rawr.  this move has been getting me for a while.  in the gym whenever i try this, i either smack the wall with my back then slide down, or hit it with my feet on the rotation.  How the heck do you do this move?

oh and if i have the wrong term, i mean doing a wall(front)flip

Tricking / Is this a cork or gainerfull?
« on: January 31, 2011, 01:44:24 PM »
I've heard both, and i can see it as a hybrid, but i'm going for a cork.  any help?

and i know that i need to carry the kick more, wrap tighter, and work on a J step.  any other tips are accepted


Injuries - Discussion / knee crap
« on: November 26, 2010, 02:31:23 PM »
soooo... eight months ago i went to a doctor after my left knee hurting for about three months prior to that and he told me i have osgood slotters syndrome (however its spelled) and said it would be done soon, like from weeks to two months max, and i could keep on with my athletic pursuits.  well now its been eight months and both of my knees are in pain, i have been wearing a patella band on the left, and wrappin the right for quite some time now.  and it has no sigh of getting better.  in fact, its getting a little worse.  i know i need to back off, but how long do you think it will be?  i am 15 years old and have grown an inch and a half since the last checkup.  do you think it will stop when i stop growing?  or did i just so happen to screw up my knees with al of these flips i do?

Freerunning / transiton dleg > side?
« on: November 25, 2010, 09:25:35 PM »
i have my double leggers along with many other flips down perfect, but not my side (kinda pathetic i know).  i just kinda suck at them.  is there any way to tweak your dleg and make a transition to sideflip by the knowlege you already have with dlegs?

oh, and just another question, are there dleg swing throughs, it seems like there could be but i never see anyone do them.

Straight from the website

Are you the next Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee? On October 22-23 you'll have the opportunity to learn the essential skills to becoming an action star by learning from the best! You'll train with a professional tumbling coach, certified stunt professional, Bushi Ban martial arts experts and more! Not only that but after you've learned all the necessary skills of becoming an action star, you'll have the opportunity to test your newly acquired skills by creating your own action scene! The scene will be filmed and edited for you but choreographed by YOU! We'll also be having a viewing and award ceremony that same evening to recognize all of your talent and hardwork.

The cost is $40 for you and all of your friends, so the more you bring the cheaper it is!

And if we get 60 people to say they are "attending" this event we will lower the cost to $30 per group! So tell all your friends and say "attending" now!

Here is the schedule:


Fight Choreography/Acting

hope to see some of you there!  if you have any questions contact me at 801-602-5854

Tricking / what is this move? (video)
« on: October 02, 2010, 10:15:53 PM »
At my karate dojo they have a tricking team that i was just invited onto, so i started watching a couple videos that they have.  they are from a while ago, but most of the same people are there.  And here in this video my sensei spencer does a fancy barrel roll looking thing and i dont know what it is exactly because i've never seen it anywhere else done like that.

the trick is at 1:15

If anyone could tell me what it is, then that will be greatly apreciated.


Pics & Vids / b twist
« on: September 28, 2010, 07:55:06 PM »
i finally landed it, and i got it on film.  but i wasn't able to edit the film because i have a stupid camera that films in .mov format and any converter i have used either doesnt work or puts a stupid banner in the middle because it was a free version.  i have no money to spend on video editing...  so you just have to watch the raw footage... oh joy!

i obviously need help with my technique or else i would be landing it better... i mea, like i have a 30" vertical, so i can jump higher then that.  any help would be appreciated.

Parkour And Freerunning / school mascot!
« on: September 10, 2010, 01:33:35 PM »
at school today i saw a sign to sign up to be the school mascot, so after school i went into the designated room and they were asking for tumbling skills and everyone was like umm... cartwheel?  and i said what i do, and what i can do and they were amazed and are seriously considering me for the mascot!

has anyone else here been one?  if so, how different is the tumbling with the costume on?

Tricking / what starts with G and ends in AINER? a pain in the butt!
« on: September 04, 2010, 12:53:40 PM »
today at a gymnastics gym i was drilling gainers, and i was doing them really low.  so low that i was freaking people out, but i would still land them by rotating VERY fast..  i just want to know, what do you guys do to get higher?  i want to get them even to the point of floatiness so i can get them outside no problem.

yeah thanks

Parkour And Freerunning / camera tripod help
« on: August 30, 2010, 12:42:10 PM »
so my parents got me a video camera, and i didnt get to chose which one it is.  they ended up getting me one that cant stand on its own and has a unique shape with no tripods built for it.

huge URL---------------------------------,r:2,s:55&tx=96&ty=79&biw=1024&bih=576

this is it to be exact.  the USB slides in.  its a good quality camera, but it cant stand on its own and i have to bring tons of crap if i want to support it.  can anyone help me out here?

Socialize / any fighters on here?
« on: August 29, 2010, 09:33:04 PM »
i know most traucers come from a martial arts background of some kind and i was just curious to know what styles of fighting people are interested in.

Tricking / now what?
« on: August 23, 2010, 10:00:48 PM »
i can do 540 kicks, sideswipes, backflips, wallspins, and what not.  i go to open gyms pretty frequently and i just dont know what to learn now.  is it time to get  serious and man up for some fulls and gainers and stuff?  i just started about a month ago but i have a 5 year karate background.  i have had no official lessons for tricking, so its all self taught with a lot of youtube.  i DONT have a camera but i have been trying to get one soon.

so yeah i've passed all of the basics, and now i just dont know what to do next. 

oh, and i havent attempted sideflips yet.  i will as soon as possible though.

Movement / B twist help
« on: August 09, 2010, 07:52:49 PM »
I can do barrel rolls off of a ledge and land on the same leg i jumped off of, but i cant do B twiats. i do the same amount of rotation but i just spun the other way.  when i try a B twist o dont get enough rotation and land on my back.  or i just psych out and roll out of it.  i have watched every tutorial out there so those arent going to help. 
any tips?
