Emopop is what I love anywhere, but I never listen to music while running unless it is coming from a radio outside a restaurant or something. Then I sit and listen and catch my breath a little before I keep going.

Movement / Re: Catting up
« on: April 05, 2013, 11:19:23 AM »
When I am pulling myself up, I have trouble finishing out the climb so I flop my torso over the wall, push up with my arms, and put my knees on the wall in between my hands. I have been told it is not very safe balance-wise and many people fall while doing this.

Movement / Catting up
« on: April 05, 2013, 09:55:16 AM »
       So one day I found this great place to practice cat leaps and wall runs. When I get into cat position, I have no trouble pulling myself up on the first ten I do, and I am doing more and more without trouble. My problem is getting all the way up. I have been told that it is bad for your knees to use them to get up by putting them in between your arms and using them as a base, but I can't seem to find any other technique that is quick to ascend the wall. What do i do? I feel like my legs are too long or my arms are too short. I have the same problem when vaulting with my legs between my arms too. My feet always seem to catch the lower edge of what I am vaulting.

alright easy enough

sorry, noob is mean. :-[ :-[i meant novice is another word for beginner

uhhhh, how old are you? novice is another word for noob.

the reason no one wants you on their roof is because if you get hurt doing an incorrect roll jumping from that height, you can sue for the medical expenses and other stuff. police are protecting the mall as much as you. stay off roofs

When eating rabbit stew, try to think of it as a succulent dish of cabbage and you will start to appreciate it. (Find the metaphor)

I'm thinking of learning how to wall run into a backflip, just to show those skeptics. and then i'll say: "That is not parkour, that is what most consider tricking."

the backflip scenario is my biggest pet peeve. i believe parkour is overcoming obstacles your whole life anyway. when you start parkour, you don't just quit. parkour is in everyones blood, they just have to bring it out. obstacles in your way include mental, physical and emotional barriers. everyone practices parkour, it just depends on how you do it that defines your style of parkour.

I am trying to say that when putting parkour into practice, flips are not efficient. while training for parkour flip all you want, but while putting it into practice during a race or to get somewhere in a certain time flips are not parkour. Kongs are very efficient when done correctly, by the way.

Ummmmmm.... how do i start? if there is anyone out there from green bay who reads this, could you let me know and maybe we could train together

okay guys get ready for the lame of all lames. i was putzing with my friend one day when we went downstairs to play xbox. i stumbled on his assassins creed 2 game. i wondered what that was so i played it. i beat the first fight then got into the very first race of the game, took me 18 trys to beat it, then said "i could do that, thats easy". so i started running and jumping for a while. about a year into it and i still didnt know there was a term for what i was doing when one day my friend goes "I'm better at Parkour than you" and in my head i go "wtf?" i looked it up, found this site, and got serious about it. so there you go...another traceur inspired by videogames. i have noticed that people who actually practice for parkour are better in assassins creed than those who don't, usually finding the most efficient path and getting the kills

Look what you started maldoure. Anyway, when you see someone flip, any kind of flip, they are tricking. Call me a hater, but parkour is not about showing off in any way, shape or form. If the flip was the fastest way down a ledge or up a ledge or across a field, then it is parkour, but when people do parkour these days they add in their own mixture of tricking. Have you ever seen a jump to anywhere that could have been faster with a flip in it?

Has anyone ever actually seen or done a horizontal wall run of more than five feet? Is there video?

I would just like to point out that these are tools in parkour and not the actual "moves" of parkour. Parkour has no move set and these techniques are just ways that people have found works the best to get over specific obstacles. I really don't like it that people believe parkour is about mastering certain moves to win races faster and such. Parkour is about the freedom of play anywhere.

Guys we're talking about "wall runs" here. Wall run is not an actual move in parkour as there is no set move list but it is a helpful technique. Anyway i believe you should try for your dominant foot most of the time but there is always that small time when you are racing for fun and come at a wall with you non-dominant. So practice with both. Finally I can get over a twelve footer with a wall run but barely slap the ten foot mark with just hops.  So the "wall run" is very helpful to me.

Movement / Re: Climb Leap: Any Techniques?
« on: January 15, 2013, 12:55:22 PM »
i also believe this is possible and think the technique is easy. the way to do it is to find two footholds while catting and pushing up explosively. if you are travelling to a point farther out than you are simply push out instead of up. the problem comes in the finish. you need to catch yourself with both hands and be ready for any loose stones or timbers that may come out. this technique would be one of the easiest to fall in and i do not recommend it as it would take enormous upper body strength to keep yourself hanging there.
