Socialize / Re: are tattoos bad?
« on: April 26, 2010, 03:17:46 AM »
Hey, I'm one of those "older groups" guys (47), and I don't look down on them at all. There is nothing wrong with many Tribal tattoos either, because they very much CAN mean something to someone.

I would caution you about gauging the ears, though. I know someone who did that, and he regrets it completely. He also has tats over 80% of his body, and has no problem with them, but would never have done his ears, if he could go back and do it again.


one of my friends gaged his ears out to the size of silver dollars, but now you can't even tell he had them so much as pierced. he went to a plastic surgeon who did an amazing job fixing them. you have to look very close to see even the faint traces of a scar.

ok, if there's a zombie apocalypse... promise we'll all meet at the highest building in the world (no stairs or elevators)
what building is that?

The Khalifa Tower in Dubai.. tallest building in the world. The thing is almost one kilometer high.

Inspired by the movie Avatar. Training in the lush California Redwood Forests:

If you have trained with them (the Yamakasi founders) and have real first hand knowledge of their methods, then by all means, you have every right to voice an opinion regarding their training practices. I don't have that kind of first-hand knowledge, so I couldn't fairly say anything about that.. at least not yet. The closest I have gotten to training with people who have THAT much experience has been with Stephane Vigroux a couple of times. I got to participate in training for one day with David Belle, but I don't think that really counts too much. He told me to jump off of something that looked really freakin high to me and I was scared to death, but I sucked it up and did it, and it wasn't so bad afterall. My legs didn't break. I had only been training for about nine months at that time.

Oh, and by the way, you would probably be quite surprised to see some of the people who actually read these forums, but never post.

Of course it's good to question and challenge, but there is a way of doing it that includes respecting the other person and showing good manners. If you are sincere about questioning and challenging, then I would recommend to contact the person directly and privately to do so. I'm sorry guys, but I don't feel comfortable when people speak ill of others when they're not present.. It's like backbiting. It's my own personal habit that if I'm going to say anything about someone in a public space, I say something positive, or I remain silent, with few exceptions. Call me old fashioned, but it's how my parents raised me. Sorry if you guys find that offensive.

Parkour..

I thought the whole rooftop thing was a bit stupid, yes you can climb a ladder like building side, but please get down. He can hurt himself no matter how experienced he is and its probably private property.

LOL, this is how parkour began.. and these people are from the Yamakasi, who were the founders of the discipline. Have some respect man ;)

Awesome! A REAL parkour video for a change. I always love the stuff coming out of Australia. Top quality all the time.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Scared of moves I've done before?
« on: April 21, 2010, 12:05:53 PM »
repetition, repetition, repetition is the answer

53
It's oldschool style. These guys started training like 20 years ago! They also do the regular cat leap to muscle up variation that you see in most videos these days. I think they reason they do this other, slightly more awkward version is for safety, because if you notice, he's pretty high up from the ground. If he slipped, it might mean death. Maybe we could ask them about it when they come to Ohio in May.

Ohio / Re: parkour peeps in teledo?

Hey thanks for the invite!
 I'll be there for pk gen again, last year was amazing!
We are finally starting to have a great crew so I would love to set something up where we come down for a day!


We are looking forward to seeing you guys. I'm glad you're coming. Ohio gotta represent! :)

Unfortunately, being unemployed means I can't make that.  :'(

I might be able to squeeze the money for gas for the drive, but no way could I afford a hotel.

Beside, being brand new at this, it would probably be lost on me. LOL


On the contrary, this is an excellent thing for beginners. We strongly encourage all beginners to come. There will be something for everyone. We will probably divide the people up roughly according to experience, and then each group will get a couple of teachers to help them out. The groups will be rotated so everyone gets a chance to train with all the coaches.

59
Yeah, the videos are laid back, but at the same time, I couldn't come anywhere near some of those moves they were pulling off! I thought it was pretty cool how in Chau's video he used traditional Native American singing. Something I would never expect to hear in a parkour video coming out of France. Nice combination for sure. I am so looking forward to training with these guys at our upcoming event :)
