Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Gloves or no gloves?

Really I would say no gloves.


you wear gloves as though they are your underwear.
meaning you never take them off and there a PART of you.

You can't touch this.

Consumer Whores / Re: Grippiest shoes?
« on: October 04, 2008, 08:11:54 PM »
well I can attest for the ariakes on smooth surfaces. rails all the way, even sloped up!
painted metal is a difficult situation, but skill should overcome shoe in THAT area.
painted rails are np. its just at the park...kinda like that painted metal is difficult.
(and therefore fun  ;))

but note, this is not in comparison to the 5/10 freerunners, but i have heard that they are
horrible on rails and they get wet easy in water.

that being said, the lite meshs get wet easy too...because you can literally see light go from the
top of the she to the inside AND you can literally feel the breeze on your foot.

my next shoe i will be trying (because finally after 5/6 months my ariaks are basically finished)
will be the Nike Air Max Torch. Cheap and good reviews all around  :)

I dont care anymore, mostly casue of the 5.10 guy.


dont let anyone discourage you, im not being a ref. here im just saying....we should all relax.  :D

again, thanks for the advice. again....i will be trying these shoes.
so no matta what know you helped someone  ;)

who gives a shit what parkour generations says about shoes.  Their expertise is teaching parkour not shoe reviewing, I don't know why it would matter who it was that said they were bad, just that somebody said they were.  I have a pair of the ariakes that are a test pair and I've had them from before they were released, and that was about a year ago, and i've pretty much trained only in those (had a pair of pumas which were f#cking awesome but they fell apart in a month) and my ariakes are fine.  They are extremely worn because of the amount of use but they are definitely still usable. 
This kid is a tard, hahaha. Wow, hahaha. You argue everything. This isint a post about "what you think"; Its what Pk GEN thinks. Your free to think differently, but you dont perform parkour at the level they do, so its POSSBILE that you dont know the full disadvantage of the design. Dont be so critical about the opinions of others. We dont argue about parkour on this site, we discuss. PK GEN know alot more about pk then you, so wouldent you think they might know more about footwear. They have been looking at foot wear for over 15 years, maby they know the pros and cons of design, just a thought. Its true that they could be wrong, they are human, but there skill is pritty superhuman if you ask me. they have probably been in alot more situations that you have been, so they might know what works on some things and not of others. Ponder the thoughts of people with more knowledge that you, makes you better.

+1 Clinton     just for speaking my mind

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: APK's own symbol?

I took the symbol and put it on one of the shirts from the APK store with a real crappy cloning job. Just to give an idea of what it would look like. I can put it on other things if you'd like at well.

That looks so cool! I would buy that!
That VERY one... :D

Wow, that was quite interesting. I laughed a couple times when I replaced 'hakcer' with traceur.

Oh man, that is not good.

But your video speaks too well, if it does close, we must
respect their wishes.

And closed as in permanently or maybe just under a little construction?

This is gonna sound too lame

I can't imagine how long their warmup must be. :P

you mean cold up!      (ahhh ok im sorry i said that...ugh  :P)

This was so crisp and clean! Amazing determination and love of
movement by this team. Way to go! And way to not slip on the
ice either!

Oh and BTW, im clearly kidding, Jereme is one of the best traceurs i had the privilege of training with!

You know what I appreciate? Neither of us got heated in that little conversation hahaa.
I'm glad to hear you got to train with him. I wanna do that!!!  ;D
I've only been to one jam with him so far, this year, Colossal in Chi-town.

Is anyone else sick of hearing about Jereme?

I mean...come on, he's not THAT good  :-Sarcasm

How can you say that?   :o  :-\

If that wasn't sarcasim it was mean.

What is "good" by your standards? It seems you would be comparing him
to others. Why is this a bad thing? Because a statement like that
is kind of pointless man. Why does it matter if you hear so much about him?

Would you not like it if many people admired you?

Socialize / College in France
« on: October 01, 2008, 06:57:39 PM »
Well well well...look who wants to go to college in France? Moi!

Let's get the obvious stuff out of the way:
1. I know about the language info. so please no comments there.
2. I know about the economy

What I don't know:
1. Where is a decent place to live (in relation to a college of course)
2. Where would I find an internet site where I could search for colleges!?  ???
3. I heard that college is free for those in France (and some other European countries) if the student meets the requirements.


Are there any people who have gone to France who could possibly comment on their experience?
Where would you recommend moving to?

I will ask my professors if they know of any sources I can check to find out some of this info. but I figured
the forums would be a good place to ask around too. Many traceurs have probably travelled to France and although
this isn't a thread to comment on your trip (sorry!  :-*) I would love to hear what you thought of France, it's people,
where you would move to, and maybe what school you recommend (or, again, a site where I can search myself?)

I hope to be studying abroad in France soon so that would be a good experience to see if i want to move there
permanently or not.

His creativity and his training are amazing!

I second that!  ;) I watch his videos over and over
because that is the kind of subtle training that I have
here in my society. These are very worthwhile vids!

« on: October 01, 2008, 06:37:45 PM »
Beautiful video. I love watching PK GEN Behind the Jump series
because it is an inspiration. They make it look beautiful and serene
and that is how I want to feel.

These videos, these individuals make me want to go outside
and practice how I move. Very deep philosophy comes
out with training your body for so long and day after day.

You learn about yourself and thanks to these videos I
learn even more.  8)

Man, you are a very controlled individual.

That is simply amazing. I find that parkour relieves me from
my stress as well. Anger is not too much of an issue anymore
and things just don't bother me like they used to.

+1 for A. realizing parkour has helped your life and B. walking away from a fight
which I feel (and you said) is aided and influenced by parkour (calmness, awareness, pacifism).

But Karma that you will receive in life is much more than a +1 rating on here, that is
an invaluable lesson to all those around you who witnessed you walking away.
