Injuries - Discussion / knee crap
« on: November 26, 2010, 02:31:23 PM »
soooo... eight months ago i went to a doctor after my left knee hurting for about three months prior to that and he told me i have osgood slotters syndrome (however its spelled) and said it would be done soon, like from weeks to two months max, and i could keep on with my athletic pursuits.  well now its been eight months and both of my knees are in pain, i have been wearing a patella band on the left, and wrappin the right for quite some time now.  and it has no sigh of getting better.  in fact, its getting a little worse.  i know i need to back off, but how long do you think it will be?  i am 15 years old and have grown an inch and a half since the last checkup.  do you think it will stop when i stop growing?  or did i just so happen to screw up my knees with al of these flips i do?

you've got some great muscle control there!  most women take much longer to get up a wall then that! (and some men)

Freerunning / transiton dleg > side?
« on: November 25, 2010, 09:25:35 PM »
i have my double leggers along with many other flips down perfect, but not my side (kinda pathetic i know).  i just kinda suck at them.  is there any way to tweak your dleg and make a transition to sideflip by the knowlege you already have with dlegs?

oh, and just another question, are there dleg swing throughs, it seems like there could be but i never see anyone do them.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: What defines freerunning?
« on: November 18, 2010, 04:22:41 PM »
FREE- unimpeded, as motion or movement; easy, firm, or swift not held fast; loose; unattached. not joined to or in contact with something else acting without self-restraint or reserve
Running-moving or proceeding easily or smoothly.

there ya go.

see this, parkour can also be put into this category, but not strictly.  its like a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square.  its all something that is interpreted, so lets not get into debates about philosophy.

I never recommended him to condition his shins, i just pointed out that due to the fact that i do, my results may be different then his.

well actually if you repeatedly hit your shins against hard surfaces it creates microfractures and when they heal it becomes something harder then what it was before.  check it out

and if you look it up, its everywhere.  its an important thing for kickboxers to do, because of shin to shin contact.

well i dont use anything, and i do just fine.  well granted that i am a fighter and icondition my shins, but i actually do most of my parkour in jeans, because thats what i am wearing when i see something.  so i guess the cloth would work just fine for you.  you may bang them up a little bit still, but it will teach you to do it differently.  and if you have too much protection on tem, it could teach you bad habits, like a person who tries to flip on the ground as he would a trampoine.

Movement / Re: Matress to floor transition - flips
« on: November 01, 2010, 07:04:41 PM »
this may just be me, but if you keep using mattresses then you'll always have that mental block of hard ground.  i say just go out and do it.  if you fail, so what.  you stand up and ry again.  it doesnt hurt even on hardwood floor.  its just that people are so afraid if landing on their butt.  but in reality, thats why you have legs to shock your landing ;)

a little too much freerunning for my taste, but still great!  i say try to work on parkour movements a bit more and work on flow a bit.  But if parkour isn't exactly your cup of tea, then i say go for tricking!  its still a really fun sport.  I personally do parkour and tricking and i love them both.  i just try to balance out my training equally so i dont lose any skill in the other.  ANYWAYS its a great vid!  you really have power in your jumps
