Awesome. We'll have to get together. I'm gonna do some training at home and hit this up stronger when the weather starts brighting back up.

Rules of Parkour:

1: What goes up, must come down. Be prepaired.

2: Always look before you leap, see rule 1.

3: If it feels wrong, it usually is. Never doute your instincts.

4: Challenge and push towards your potiential, but know your limits.

5: Have fun. If you aren't enjoying what you are doing, then why bother?

I just got an email from a new guy asking for help about a specific topic.... I asked around some of my old buddies to see if they wouldn't mind helping him out since I don't live in the region anymore. This sparked a curiosity about how APK is doing, since I've been both working like mad and have moved around the state a lot, and I must say that some of these new improvements are very exciting. The leave no trace-FANTASTIC! The resorces for instructions and networking-DOUBLE AWESOME! If i had more time I would try to get back in the flow of things. But I just felt like saying how much I enjoyed returning to this site after such a long time.

Keep on flowing.

"Why DO we revere David Belle like a God?" 

Thats simple.  When people first see David, his creation (or Co-creation if you rather), and learn about his philosophy, you can almost see people's paradim shift.  Particually in America where most assume that confrientation needs to be met agressively, head on, and assertively, but when you see a man who's bending all the rules passively, when you see a man who confidently and smoothly overcomes obsticals that are deemed super-human, you tend to raise him above the normal man.  (Also see Chuck Norris.)  I use to think this way too.  Particually about the Tribe, but I must say that from personal experence they are just normal guys like you or I.  I stayed at M2's house for a "PKUSA" jam.  I've stayed at Ando's house for the Chi-town jam.  I've Jammed with several of those guys on seveal ocassons, even had them drive all the way to Mi for a jam and had them crash at my Aunts.  These are good citizens who put forth their best effort to represent what they believe, and yes they put both their pants and shoes on one leg at a time.

-When did shoes become so important? Why?

Thats like asking a fisherman what type of Lures or poles he uses, what tires a racecar driver prefers.  Its vital for our training to have adequte grip not only for the sake of our physical progression, but to keep oneself safe from harm as well.  It may be that we are getting to be consumer whores, but that is the nature of the business.  I'd rather buy more expensive gear that specifically toned to what I'm attempting to do.  Running while wearing say stealtoe boots, while not undone, isn't condusive to what I'd like to achieve.  I'll leave the date stuff to someone who's more Time-line savy.

Thats just my 2cent's worth.

The best thing to do is know your limits.  Aproach them slowly and push them with caution.

Its been forever.

Did some balance practice today.  Worked at that for about half hour.  Did some vault practice.  Turn fault, OHV and one to two hand vaults.

Hopefully, my job will be secure and money won't be a problem and I can train more often.

If you are looking to improve your Kongs and speed vault, why not tape yourself doing them?  Review the tape, see where your techinque could be a little better and then work on refining that.  Parkour is about fluidity, so one fluid vault is more effective and beautiful then a hundred rough ones.

...anyone?

Its been too long and time has not been kind.  But besides that, I'm back.  Need to condition, train, and get back into the swing of things.  I've moved to brighton so if there is anybody out that could help an old timer...  :D

I hear that Ann Arbor is the spot to be, any weekly training going on down there?
