Parkour And Freerunning / Re: "Fake" Traceurs/Traceuse
« on: August 19, 2011, 05:21:34 PM »
No, it does not make you fake. "Fake" isn't that great of a word for what your asking.

I would say rather, that (at least in my opinion) you aren't getting everything that Parkour has to offer if you aren't applying to the philosophy at all. And by applying to it, I'm not saying that you have to treat it like a religion or some extremist form of Parkour (which is ridiculous, even just reading that).

Just applying to the concept of being strong, ever improving, and anything else synonymous with that works in my opinion. Majority of the most skilled either look for that or naturally enjoy training for it. You can get fun out of the discipline. Personally, I do it for fun. But the way I train is still disciplined, so it works out.

On the other hand, you get a lot of people who just do it for fun and are completely reckless in their training.


Sorry for the derailment, shit happens.

Philadelphia / Philadelphia Parkour Tee's

So happy I finally went through and made a shirt for the local community lol. Also got some Team Manaconda Tee's as well, but that's only for the big-dicked folks out there. lol. I feel like with how well the Tee's have came out, I'm going to start broadening out to the global community for clothing.

Haven't seen any profit, and don't expect any. Just seeing designs of mine in Parkour videos/photos would be awesome to be honest.

The people that created Parkour told us what it was. They told us it had a philosophy. They were right on both accounts.

Honestly it's as simple as that.

Follow it or don't, I don't care haha.

The discussion here is, whether the founders intended to impart a particular philosophy with that art, whichever name from whichever point in Parkour history you want to use. Which.. they did.

But no Adam, history is subjective!

I love how the ignorant act so confident in what they say, some of you have no idea what you are talking about and by spreading your incorrect ideas on this subject, you are only confusing new people more.

A brief and not perfect history: There was a set idea between the Yamak in the beginning. They ended up splitting all in their different paths, for one reason or another. English media in particular led to mass confusion (PK vs. FR). And from there, the community became so big that it was out of the founders hands to say what it is and isn't.

There is what we do now, and what they were doing in the beginning. In my opinion, it's not Parkour/Freerun that needs the separation, but more so the original practice of movement and what we now have today.

So like I said earlier, do whatever works for you but DO NOT knock people for what they do: "While I think it's fine that everyone has there own motivations and reasons for doing Parkour, I do not think that we have any right in denouncing what the 1st generation of practitioners spent years refining."

There is no 'Parkour Philosophy'. Parkour is what you make it.

"And you think, well, if they get their kicks out of that, you can't really say 'No, you can't do this!' You have to let them express themselves. But we should also be entitled to finish what we started, even if people don't adhere, it doesn't matter, since we never did things to please or bring crowds, so we just stay ourselves." -David Belle

Injuries - Discussion / Re: Muscle Up Injury Prevention
« on: August 11, 2011, 09:10:35 AM »
Most injuries I see from muscle ups have less to do with with quantity, usually more about the quality. Keeping arms symmetrical (versus throwing one arm up after the other), along with keeping from pointing the elbows out when doing the transition/dip should keep you from getting hurt.

Listen to Steven and Chris though. They know more than me haha.
