Consumer Whores / Re: five ten grip
« on: July 23, 2010, 09:59:38 PM »
Wow, sorry to derail the conversation back on topic again, but I've already considered tVibrams. I have chosen to invest in a pair of 5.10s. I want something that will have good grip to smoother surfaces. Smooth walls, poles, etc.

five finger grip is the closest you're getting to spider man..

 :o :o :o


nah, but they're real good mum threw mine out though, cause they smelled a bit worse than she thought they should... im definately getting the socks when i get them again.

and for those on a budget- make sure to look into feiyues i gotta pair to hold me through after my Fivefingers disappeared, they're really grippy once you break em in.

Yeah that's hilarious. My first time seeing it.

What would he say about all of those assholes who sell out and perform in commercials and movies?

I hate people who don't do parkour the right way.   >:(

the first two flips.

were belle.

in a commercial...

every time he said no, and the guillotine, were all clips of belle...

in a movie...

dude cops is where parkour really comes in

i find that text can really distort the meaning of a sentence. super dude i hope you were trying to be funny and/or sarcastic, dude.

if in fact you were, you did a real bad job at displaying your humour.

my friend we have developed many a tool to help portray the intentions behind a written sentence

for instance the sarcasm smiley: dude cops is where parkour really comes in [insert  :-Sarcasm]
or the simpler wink:  ;)

or even an shortened set of words like:

  • jk= just kidding
  • lol= laughing out lout
  • lmao= laughing my ass off
  • rofl= rolling on the floor laughing

these are to help you from having your statements taken seriously.

ok? points well presented but still fallible..

mistake 1: you seem to think that emergency exit= rooftop

mistake 2: you seem to think that training low level movements is solely for the purpose of being able to do higher level ones

now, parkour almost never grants instant roof access, and getting down in many modern [fire escape-less] buildings can be quite IMPOSSIBLE.

fear is a necessity of the body, eliminating it IS reckless in most circumstances.. if i didn't fear i would have no reason to be running from an assailant in the first place

if i spend most of my time at ground level, then my emergencies are most likely to occur at ground level. if an emergency occurs at ground level: then the parkour used to evade will be done at ground level.

if you enjoy being of rooftops, and spend a majority of your time on roofs, and feel that it is more likely for YOU to need to escape on roofs then feel free to train rooftop pk; as it would be YOUR environment..

-which must be limited if it can be the only thing you can use to escape.

parkour free's us from the right or wrong way concepts of society, and enables us to see the world for what it really is.
it has given me the vision to see that rails are not boundaries and neither are walls for that matter.

in terms of efficiency ground level is like driving and rooftop is like flying; sure you get away faster.. and once you're up you're gone

 but would you prefer crash in a plane or a car?

now parkour is a defined philosophy and i tend to be very anal about that..

i can understand the roof top training but it is not necessary if it isn't your environment.. sure it's useful
but im sure endurance running in the sahara as just as useful [i mean technically its pk]

if you spend time on roofs, do roof training.
but for the people who spend as much time being traceurs on roofs as they do in the desert.. it really isn't needed per se but it IS useful

FAQ / Re: How to use the word Parkour
« on: September 27, 2009, 02:35:33 PM »
I'm sorry if this has been asked already (I was too lazy to read all of the replys)  but how do you pronounce traceur?  I say it like tracer, as in a person who would trace a picture.  Is that correct?
im confused on this also.. i say Traceur as in TraceOR, but im not going to be the one to tell you how to say it..
(help me out Muse!!) ;D :P

the a is pronounced like the a in car and the eur would be pronounced like the beginning of EURope which isnt pronounce eOrope  :P

so its TrcAr•cEURope

hope it helps lol

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Parkour "Competition" Ideas
« on: August 29, 2009, 01:40:21 PM »

As for Parkour, that is a stickier situation. Because it was created inherently as a non-competitive activity, an activity rooted in helping others and the idea of "efficiency"     

       excuse me but you kinda just said that parkour is non comp

if the thread's first sentences give the definition of something; why is everyone discussing ways of contradicting the discipline

to me it makes more sense to leave parkour as it is, underground communities [imho] are better than mainstream fads.

-we already know what happened to skateboarding.. lets learn from, not repeat history

is competition truly necessary

is competition pk/fr/laddp?
-lets not confuse the part with the whole guys::

if i am playing tag and i run up a wall and kash down the next obstacle, i am still playing tag and nothing more.. the game of tag doesn't become parkour just because i am moving efficiently

if i am racing a fellow traceur and we traverse any and everything in our way, we are still RACING not doing parkour [we could be utilizing efficient moving but that doesn't make a race laddp]

for instance: if i were a decathalon runner, and i ran to catch a thief (as fast as i would for a decathalon); i did not just run a decathalon.
-reason being it doesnt fit into the definition of a decathalon..

competing is not parkour [or any motion art as a matter of fact]

            people tend to look at things like mirror's edge's controlling government, or the obese space society of Wall E as far-fetched and asinine, all the while ignorant of the seeds sown by society and the growing leaflets taking us in those directions

The guys who run barefoot to prefer the FeelMax shoes

At $85 [60 EU] [for the Panka] they're pricey. They're in Euro sizes. No stores in the US yet. That doesn't include shipping.
They only ship within Europe.

well given that the vibrams let me grab the corners of chain link fences with any of my toes; and that they are essentially a peice of super-grippy rubber contoured around your foot and toes

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">[/url]

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">[/url]

in terms of natural barefoot protection, this is as close as it gets.. they are gloves for your feet

with exceptional grip that surpasses a lot of the shoes i've trained in
[the only thing i wouldn't do in them is go longboarding for fear of needing to foot brake

go try on a pair of pumas

then order a pair of puma commanders from the finish line for $30
_-they have an ultra natural feel and just the right amount of grip
[i have the all white ones with the white soles]

I enjoy medieation most pwo

Helps me deal with the relative pain from sore muscles
- I let my body go, and take the focus off of it to where I feel like a massive blob of cells, then I feel so much better when I reconnect

Eventually they will grow up and see that those types of attitudes are not going to get them very far in anything.

yeah these are the ones who DONT grow up

what you should do
-recruit the loner
-enlighten the punks, teach them a thing or two, if they're not accepting send them here right before you shun them to the nether-world

standing up for the values of parkour

by flipping while injured??

he showed that everyone is capable of motion in a badass way.. but iOunno about the values of parkour ex: etre et durer (to be and to last)

Movement / Re: monkey vault
« on: June 01, 2009, 03:15:52 PM »
there really is no set hieght to measure, as there are no set rules

-it's all relative to your body

-head high+ is usually discouraged for the first year  and for me a six foot drop [about 1/2ft overhead] is usually accomplished in a turn vault to cat, then a lache to roll or a leap to roll but never a straight jump

DB is human, DB does pk for what DB wants, therefore only DB can determine why he does pk
-although i wouldn't be shocked either..


speaking of natural, anyone get down with traveling kongs? [or up/over/across ;)]

Movement / Re: monkey vault
« on: June 01, 2009, 11:02:57 AM »
Unless those "bigger drops" are under 3 ft you should be rolling..

To make it cooler try training every roll
Start with each shoulder
Then each compression method:
-hands to shoulder
-hands to forearm to shoulder
-scoop to shoulder

Then tweak the angle untill you can roll a 90• turn

Then go through the progression on the opposite shoulder

Then do it all on concrete, then do it all diving, then from hieght jumps

- by that time I'm sure rolls will be so deeply interwoven into your muscle memmory that, not only will you roll after every flight, but if your kids will jump out of the crib and pk roll upon impact

yup this is true[the speed vaults]

i think they slow it down to gain more control [mainly hand wise] but the other day i tried to speed ove this short wall [with a film of water on it] and when my hand started sliding i tried to put my foot on to safety out, but i made contact with the center of my foot and the entire limb hydroplaned..leaving me to land LUCKILY on my jumping foot [which magically found its way through the fish-out-of-water vault]

it would have been best to do a safety kash [monkey then dash after landing a foot on the obstacle], giving me 3 balanced points of contact

but the way pk gen did it really centered themselves onto their arms [so gonna try it if it rains again tomorrow 8)]

well my rain training inspiration was found in a yamakasi vid [i've been led to believe they use darts] of them training in the rain if i find it i'll post it

- the whole week its been raining, hurricane winds+hail strength rain= the whole week i've been training
 yesterday i struggled to get up this wall slightly higher than chest height, and what awaited on the other side was the question WHY

-hey what are you doing?
-for what.. in the rain? WHY?
to move.. [smile] because you never know when you might have to get to or from somewhere..

-but in the RAIN?
[rolled my eyes, grinned, then kash vaulted down the four feet into my first *CLEAN* concrete roll, then kept running]

water is just another obstacle, get over/around it, use your hands/arms more to distribute your weight more evenly across things than just two points of contact [imo] ;)
