A couple Ozzish - no know if can fix.
Crazy Talk - Pidgen... pigeon is one BIRD.
Islands - Kauai or Kaua'i, not Kauia... lucky for you it's not one bad word. Tho double-check with Shiloh... kau and ia have multiple meanings.

I asked Chiemi to post here in Crazy Talk. Figure we can use this as just our general talk story thread. She's only traceur on Big Island? No - there's Steep from Volcanos. Don't know if Paul [Pr!nce] ever made it over from Russia - he was supposed to be Kailua-Kona from June to November last year.

Ozzi - I saw you were on this morning. So sick you can't jam this weekend?  :P I pray you heal up fast!

Hey, BTW I think I keep translate "Practical Guide". Plenny lots that Pilou didn't touch. Mebbe I check the French threads, make sure he hasn't already done it. [Or Muse]

[Haole translation]: Hello, Shiloh. I see you registered here at APK this afternoon - about half an hour ago. I'm disappointed that you didn't post. Please become more active.

I can pidgen in my brain, but when I try speak, it comes out haole. Probably because I am.  ;D

[Thanks for the FIX, Ozzi]
[Thanks for moving the Hotspots - Big Island thread Ozzi. I got rid of the redirect message. See, Chiemi - now you so special, got your own area to fill]

Only problem with talking story in Crazy Talk, is now if someone starts talking crazy, we can't send them off to Crazy Talk, cuz that's where we are. Oh well. Deal with it when we have to deal with it, I guess ;D

@ Ben. Yep. This is the new Lounge Room. What's the story with "Oisin's Revenge"? From the Yeats poem, Irish legend, or something else?

@ Chiemi. Thanks. Lived Maui 14 years, now.
  You've got people to train with in Aukland, right? Only at Hilo you're solo? I went solo for about 18 months until Duke and Shiloh started training. Still train alone 95% of the time. What you can maybe do is find some friends at UH Hilo who hike, others who run, others who do martial arts or something. That way you're getting great conditioning in with other people, even if you have to train pk by yourself. Just an idea...

Shiloh - You gots? Shoots - I'll even walk to your house if you're giving it away ;D Phone is DEAD but can email or PM me.

Chiemi - so mebbe bring girls to gym for clean padded parkour - show em how to do simple vaults. Get um hooked. Then take um outside when they're more confident. Foucan did all kine crazy stuff in the gym in Jump Britain, I think it was. No needs do that, but a vaulting horse, bar, beam and mat could be combined in hundreds of different ways.

Gregg- I take it from the Fienian Cycle of Irish legend. Some years back I joined the Fianna Organization and started learning more about my ancestors culture and legends. The whole bent of the organization is

Quote
The Fianna Organization's Mission Statement

In honor of the spirit and traditions of the ancient Indo European warrior cultures, those of us who seek to emulate the old ways, do come together and form the Fianna Organization.

The goal of the Fianna Organization is to research, recreate, and train in the martial skills of our ancient Celtic and other Indo-European ancestors.We do this through the study of myths, legends, tales, and archaelogical knowledge of our people, and by our own martial experiences in order to develop a literary interpretation of these skills and practices as we believe they may have been done by our honored ancestors.


though over the past few years the membership and activity has kind of died off. Oisin son of Finn is my favorite hero of the Fianna of old so I honor his name. Part of what originally drew me to Parkour when I first saw it was that it reminded me a good deal of the Feats which Fenian men were supposed to be able to preform. Leaping onto the point of a spear and balancing on it (percision), walking up and down the length of a sword (rail walking), leaping over a tree branch at head hights (monkey vualt), going under a branch at knee hight while running (underbar), etc...etc...

You can check her vid HERE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKIrg58pp3w) and HERE  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6P-OXqZzOI)She has join us as several jams and is a very active part of the community. I am trying to get her on the Hawaii Pet Magazine and I need your favor to vote for her.

 So I need a big but really small favor from you all. It is simple and easy, all you got to do is go to THIS LINK (http://www.hawaiipetnetwork.com/photo/roxy2-1?context=user) rate her and leave a comment.

 Then the 12 best pics will be the finalist and the staff will choose the winner.

Hey, all.. just so you don't get in trouble, read the APK forum rules.
http://www.americanparkour.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,159/topic,81.0/

It's slightly different than HIpk, and they enforce it different.
If you treat everyone with respect, that should take care of 99%.

Ho! Google Books gots "Pidgin To Da Max" fo FREE! I no give da kine - easy nuff to fine, tho.

These pidgin resources are being supplied free of charge to the local community.

Please be aware that "Da Jesus Book" contains religious material from 2000 years ago. Some people find it offensive.
"Pidgin to da Max" contains racial stereotypes, and crude humor, from the last 25 years or so. Some people find it offensive.
Some people find pidgin offensive.
Some people who use pidgin find those people offensive ;D

Brah! You no know da kine? Serious?

It's "the kind", "the thing"... when you can't remember someone's name "I go talk to da kine da odder day",
or you're talking about something "you know, da kine" or when you both know what you're talking about.

I'm so glad I was in pidgin mindset. Last night went to one class. I was only haole. Shiloh - you got one married cousin named James? He reminded me a lot of you. Anyway, I tried to think pidgin, even tho I chose to speak mostly haole.

Hey Ozzi - saw your journal that you're feeling well enough for major indo board session. And Guitar Hero ;D
I'm so glad you're feeling better. Were you taking anything special to try kick it? [Diet, liquids, extra sleep?]

Why post this here? Build the Hawaii ohana more than if I only post it at your journal. At least for now.

Not much really, I have been on Tylenol, some antibiotics and vitamines lately. But that is about it. My ear still has a ringing going on and mild pain. Hoping antibiotics will take care of it.

Ill see how I really feel today at the class. Ill keep you posted. Thanks G  ;)

OMG.....I did 5x5 overhead squats today at weights of 35, 40, 45, 50, and 50 and I want to die. I had never even seen an overhead squat before today at CrossFit. I now have a pulled groin muscle and an intimate knowledge of just how tight my lats really are. I think
I'm going to be working on this one for awhile..... :o


I kinda feel like a wuss too crying about such light weights....but wow
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on July 22, 2009, 06:29:52 PM
"Beauty" of CrossFit - there are enough different exercises that you won't see overhead squat for a while, but you'll get stronger [after you heal from pulled groin]. Hope you're feeling better soon.
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: OisinsRevenge on July 23, 2009, 10:52:29 PM
Its more of a flexiblility issue for me than strength. I can push a lot more than 50# over my head. But I cann't go down into a squat with out my arms coming forward, so I hurt myself with bad form.

Guys set your DVR, TIVOS to record the Pethui show. OC16 if we are lucky they will play it again. Dont want to spoil it, just watch it.
Here are the showings. (http://www.thepethui.com/index.html)

If you have a DVR of any kind, set it to record the show on channel 16 "on this channel at anytime" option.

If we get lucky and they play it again, I am sure you will enjoy it. I even added the so traditional HIpk Ozzish "unmistakable change on the meaning on a word due to mispronunciation" if you have been part of HIpk for a while you know what I am talking about. Otherwise you will know sooner or later anyway. 

 Once you see the show, let me know what you think.

Missed it. Had good training, tho. Very cool that they're flying you out to Colorado. Too bad you don't live Maui - then we could go up to Haleakala, and train at 5000 - 10,000 elevation. I didn't realize highest point on Oahu was only 4003'. The Koolaus are so vertical they seem higher.

Speaking of which, I am pretty excited yet anxious about it, seems quite a few people expect to see some badassness out of me, seems I have built a bit of a reputation during all this time.

You have a reputation to uphold. I don't. Unless there's a fridge lying around ;D

Hope you have a great time.

You have a reputation to uphold. I don't. Unless there's a fridge lying around ;D

Exactly, reason why I am a bit anxious about it too, people might expect to see me doing all kind of stuff. My focus will be my parkour training, and although I will have fun with some flips and what not, most people on the mainland could teach me a thing or two about that. But again, I am focusing on how clean my PK flow and technique is at the moment. The flippy stuff, well, I will go there to learn those from the rest of the community.

THE SYSTEM IS STILL PRODUCING A BROAD SWATH OF RELATIVELY LOW-TOPPED CONVECTION TO THE NORTH AND NORTHWEST OF THE CIRCULATION CENTER...SO IT STILL POSES A RAINFALL AND FLOODING HAZARD TO PORTIONS OF HAWAII.  MAXIMUM WINDS ARE CURRENTLY ESTIMATED TO 30 KT...BUT LIKELY ONLY IN AN AREA WELL NORTH OF THE CENTER OVER THE WATERS NORTHEAST OF THE STATE.  THE SYSTEM IS STILL IN THE PROCESS OF SPINNING DOWN...AND THE INTENSITY FORECAST REFLECTS AN ANTICIPATED DECREASE IN THE MAXIMUM WINDS.

Favorite place? Wow, that is a hard question, there are several places that pffer so many different things. The hike was fun, red rocks too. But then again that kong to cat spot was spic. Itd be unfair to pick one spot.

 If I had a chance to go once to one of those places though I think I would try to explore campus a bit more.

Ryan: Abnormal Psych was one of my favorite classes. I didn't do great, but I enjoyed it. Too bad your internship is unpaid. My friends used to get decent pay to assist in the computer center. I didn't know you were in college, so I thought you were 17-19 or so. Are you planning to go into clinical, academics, or something else after grad?

Alex: I've heard UH is great for Marine Bio. If nothing else, there's some really nice snorkeling here. ;D [My friends say the scuba is great, too]. The photo part of photo journalism is a matter of going out, getting the best pictures for the story. You can work on that now.

Ozzi: Yeah, a bit unfair to make you choose. I have an aunt in Boulder, so her ranch is probably one of my favorites. ;D

Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on August 20, 2009, 04:02:49 PM
Yeah - depends too on the shop where you work. My friend got into a smaller shop. I think she spent every cent she made on gear, and getting her dives. I hope that having your cert will make it easy for you to get the job when you get here.

Snorkeling almost kept me from learning to surf. Some of the Maui surf spots are snorkel spots on calm days. I saw how nasty the reef was, and how shallow the water was over the top at some of the spots. Body-surfing "Dumps" in snorkel gear I was like only in a foot or two of water much of the time. Scary! [I have NEVER surfed Dumps. NEVER!]

When you're up on top you don't always realize it, until you try to turn your board around, and your fins scrape. Or you dive under a wave, and hit reef two feet down. That was a very bad feeling.

Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on August 26, 2009, 01:39:35 PM
Not sure about Oahu in January. Been there in December, tho - you guys get about 3" rain in the month. [official HNL - Maui weather is different]. So if you got a bunch of people camping out a few days, they're probably going to get wet, dirty, cold. I remember lots of frequent, lighter rains. It could still be a lot of fun, but that's something to watch for. Seems almost everyone is asking for crash space/ camping space.

Weather can make some natural places nasty, especially ones prone to flash flooding. You may want to set up contingencies for bad weather. Check with Kokokahi or CF Oahu about taking over their spaces. See if you can get a special rate. Also look for places where a lot of people can train outside of the rain.

I would see if you could get permission to use the Kaneohe O-Course. May want to see how many Marines you can get involved, too. Use it as a way to cross-pollinate. That's a relationship you'll need to start building now...

I'm guessing most of the tracers will be noobs to Hawaii. They will have spent a lot of money to get to the jam. So try to give them an experience they won't get on the Mainland. Doesn't have to be super-expensive. Plan to hit the beach/ tourist areas at least once. Even in cold/ drizzly December my sister and I still went for a short swim, after the marathon. Remember Muse will be coming from ICE & SNOW. Same with people coming from CO, MI, NY, etc... The weather there is so bad that anything less than hurricane will feel good to them.

A couple ideas:
Watersports - swimming, snorkeling, surfing, canoeing - will depend on who's coming, expense, skill levels, who's available to lead it.
Hawaiian [and mixed-plate] culture. Don't need to go to a fakey hula... just be creative.
If you found someone who did wild pig hunting, that could be cool (?) and a good way to lose a couple tracers.  ;D
Natural hike - especially if there's water nearby and fruit on the ground.

So that's a start...

Post by: Gregg HIPK on September 19, 2009, 02:39:09 PM
Ozzi - is there a way to compare the number of posts we're having here now with the number of posts we had in a month at HIpk forum?

We had 63 posts in the week from Jul 1-7. We moved over here July 9. [July 1 is a partial day]
This week we've had 60 posts in the Hawaii forums, and today's not even over. This also doesn't count post in non-Hawaii topics, etc. [13 by Ozzi, 4 by me, bla bla bla]

So we're posting more, but for some reason it feels less to me.

Adjusting for Ozzi and me:

HIpk = 63 - (13 + 22) = 28 other posts
APK = 60 - ((23-13) + (26-4)) = 28 other posts

So Ozzi's posting at the same rate. I'm posting at the same rate. Everyone else is posting at the same rate. I must just be going mad.

Here are the top 10 posters from the old site [in order]

Ozzi, Gregg, Johnny [didn't come to APK],
Ian, Adam [on APK, but mostly in PA now], Shiloh [came to APK then dropped out of the forums],
Sala [didn't come to APK], Cody [didn't come to APK] and JC [despite registering in April].

I'm sure Dane/ Jane was in the top 10, but he deleted his account, so I don't know his post count. Probably between Ian and Adam.

Roland, Evan, Ben, Gen, Richard, Kevin, and David have made the transition over, but don't post often. I don't think any of the other top 30 posters made the move. I may be wrong. So that's 13/ 30, only 43% of the top posters made the transition over.

I had to be silly.  ;D

Still, we do need to find some low cost but fun things to do. Also ways to feed everybody. What is the confirmed count so far?
Also, how much do we want to plan on open channels, how much in HIpk Team chat, and how much in secret e-mail?

For instance - if Brian is offering CF Oahu for a morning, that's something to plan.
Kokokahi is another thing to check into... whether they can handle a swarm of traceurs, or whether they WANT to...
Did you check with the Marine base? I still think that might be fun. [O-course, O-course in gear?]

Transport and drive times. People crashed at Ozzi's/ Kaneohe v. downtown or other locations.
People staying downtown or in Waikiki can walk there from the airport. I've done it, but I was traveling light, and in marathon shape.

CFO is still an option.

The planning should be done thru the emails I think. That way we are all in the same channel. I figure people check their emails more than this.

Post by: Gregg HIPK on September 24, 2009, 11:40:56 AM
Ok. We'll save this for just fun talk.

I figured out yesterday - In over 2 years of on and off/ multiple injuries training, I've trained with other traceurs 9 times. That doesn't count trying to learn flippy stuff with Perry [crash and burn!], or racing DJ up the 8' tiered drum risers [tie]. Some days I really hate 60+ hour work weeks.

Hey gregg, me and some friends were thinking of going to maui in late november...probably the weekend before thanksgiving (november 20-22)... just to relieve some stress before finals in december.  Can you suggest some good places for me to stay that are under 100 a night?  Or do you know of anyone who rents out beach houses?  And of course would it be cool if we got together once and trained while I'm there?
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on September 25, 2009, 02:44:56 PM
Try for Nov 20-22. That's the weekend Brian will be here, so it should be fun. Brian's brother gets married Fri 20th. I don't know what his schedule is after that.

I should have Sat 21 open 7:00* - 4:30, and Sun 22 noonish to 5:00 ...
* earlier if we try for Haleakala sunrise or something insane.

Places: I would expect some super deals but I don't see them. Oh - wait - "unadvertised specials". They just don't want to put it on their web sites. Don't forget kama'aina, too.

What's important to you? Nightlife or big wave surfing or hanging out at the beach? Personally, I'd go for something in South Kihei around Kamaole 1, 2 or 3 beach. The water quality is better, less dust or cane ash, and Kihei is WAY cheaper than Wailea.

MAUI REVEALED http://www.wizardpub.com/maui/mausouthmap.html has reviews of places. Problem I saw was everywhere was listed as 3 night minimum [at least], except Maui Vista. They had decent prices in their not so great review, so I looked at their site: all their prices are 4 day minimum.

Your best bet is to cruise through MAUI REVEALED, look for places that seem good to you, then call or email to see if you can get a deal. With occupancy at half normal, if they won't deal, they're crazy.

If you're looking for crash space, I saw this on Craigslist. $25 for a bed in Lahaina.
http://honolulu.craigslist.org/mau/vac/1392447536.html

Check Craigslist for stuff like this $69/79 per night [$89 Thanksgiving week]
http://honolulu.craigslist.org/mau/vac/1392368313.html -- This person lies like a rug, tho. You can't be "across from Kalepolepo Beach Park & Sugar Beach." The pictures are random pictures of Maui, not necc of their unit. Kalepolepo means "dusty", and it's hot and dusty. Water there is bad, too. Sugar Beach is north Kihei, and has ok water, can be very windy, buggy, dusty.

Still, for the price, it might be what you need. After all, you can drive to the best Wailea or Makena beaches in 10-20 minutes.

wow, thanks for all the info gregg.  I will look into kama'aina rates and ask around for good deals....I'm hoping though that since I work for Sheraton I could get my room comp'ed...but I'd only know if they've got spaces open a week in advance, so I'm looking into other options if getting a free room from Sheraton doesn't work out. 

Yeah would be soooo great to train with ya MN style.

Post by: turtlekarma on September 27, 2009, 11:24:48 PM
yeah I know...I'm trying to convince my friends that camping out on the beach would be a "fun" alternative if I don't get our rooms comp'ed by sheraton.  but they're not as outdoorsy as I am, so...yeah I'll probably just do some last minute scrambling if Sheraton doesn't come through for me.  Did you get to train with those maui boys who were on the forums a little while ago?

I plan to get together with Austin and Glenn either Oct 4 or 11. Austin jumps Black Rock in front of the Sheraton. That's 25 miles from me.

I see your definition of "fun" is like mine.  ;D There really isn't camping on the beaches here. There IS night fishing... but that's even more "fun" than camping.

Howzit everyone.  :)   Im back in the forums and hopefully not going anywhere soon.  I've been just getting my personal life squared away and took some much needed rest away from technology. 

Never stopped PK or MN, been using it to cross-train for the winter surf. I guess been just mainly working on flow and conditioning. 
A few goals I have for my PK this year are to:
-create a vid showing personal style/movement/ and Maui
-learn and have at least 3 new techniques to have in the "toolbox"
-meet up with the guys on Oahu to get motivated and learn some (nat jam?)
-possibly learn a flip or two.
-get stronger and smoother with my movement/ work on personal style


Ryan F.-  I saw you guys mention a hostel in Wailuku.  there are a few. but bad neighborhood like Gregg said. I live in the neighborhood up the road. Its not that bad as long as you dont act up with the locals down there.  I hear its pretty cheap. And if you end up on this side I can show you around wailuku for some light pk or whatever. I know a few hikes and ponds etc.

Welcome back!

Lorin Ball currently has the best Maui vid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rviOpIzQw4Y [soundtrack was removed :P ]

Hostel: I was one that mentioned it. My big concern would be staying with drunk surfers [esp FRI night]. Even tho Ryan may be respectful, all it takes is one guy to start something.

Check out the TRAIN MAUI thread. This week is looking junk, partly due to the fair. Still, let me know what your schedule looks like [at least roughly]. I have melted since we last battled - and am still losing weight. :P

Post by: turtlekarma on September 28, 2009, 10:07:44 PM
haha but I love drunk people  ;D....I seriously wouldn't mind being around a more "scray neighborhood" but my friends are real chickens so they would probably opt to pay a little bit more for "better" location.  But yeah I'd love to go torching or night-time fishing while on maui, let me know if you've got favorite spots I should check out.  but thanks for the input shiloh and gregg, I'm looking forward to training with you guys one day.

So Ozzi - was your last video inspired by watching Ryan Ford's cat fail -> cat -> support -> crane -> precision vid?
I know I was inspired to work on cats and supports after that.

Ryan F - very nice picture of the Pali trail in WORKOUT thread. I was like "I want to run that. Now."

Not really, I had been wanting to make a vid there for a while. I was just waiting for when I felt like taking the time to film. Also, it was going to be my peace day video submission and a promo for the up coming classes. Still promo but never submitted it.

Ryan- I think Kihei will be good, like Gregg says.  Torching and fishing is not really my forte' lol, I know some nice beaches, ponds, hikes etc.  The beaches along Kihei are close to the road and safe to do some night fishing.  Walking distance to most condos. I hope to train and learn from you too man...

Gregg- Erwins new vid is sweet. Inspiring like the rest, and more in depth with movement. Makes me hungry for some MN!

I don't fish, either. The guy upstairs left his gear out in the parking lot. It wasn't there when I came home. Hope he brought it upstairs, and nobody wen cockaroach it.

There's plenty places to stay, tho finding short term seemed to be a bigger problem. I guess check availability at Sheraton - they should be able to tell you % occupancy since you're employee, yeah?

I know Wailea resorts the most - worked in them for a couple years freelance. I'm starting to learn all the Kihei places now - they're all tucked in around each other in South Kihei. You can't spit without hitting a couple of them... if you've got VERY powerful lungs.

Yeah, I'm in mood for MN, PK, FR, follow the leader, tag... pretty much anything right now ;D

thanks shiloh and gregg...I'm looking forward to my maui trip already lol.  I'm trying to be a badass and keep my entire budget under $300 (flight, room, food, entertainment)...but I doubt I will be able to if we can't find a cheap mode of transportation.  How are the buses there?  I don't remember seeing alot of them the last time I was on maui.   
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on October 02, 2009, 10:50:23 AM
http://www.co.maui.hi.us/index.aspx?NID=1310

The bus system is adequate. They're clean, usually a little behind schedule. The strongest part is free service in Kahului, Wailuku and Lahaina town. The weakest link is the service to the airport. The Haiku Islander [35] runs every 1.5 hours, and the Upcountry Islander [40] runs every 1.5 hours, 30 minutes later. [from airport to Queen Kaahumanu Mall]

An alternative would be walk 1.3 miles from the airport to K-Mart [corner of Hana Hwy and Dairy Rd] and catch the free Kahului [5] at 5 minutes after the hour, arrive at Queen K 30 minutes after the hour.

The Kahului Reverse [6] hits K-Mart at 19 after the hour and gets to Queen K on the hour - a bit longer ride through town.

It's a 2.5 mile walk from the airport to Queen K. It can be done, but it's not much fun. I've walked from the airport to Kihei several times. Sometimes people picked me up - the last guy was freaky and probably dangerous. That wasn't fun at all.

I might get rid of crazy talk since we all talk about whatevahs here.

Anyway, so I was talking to this skater guy about PK. He told me about this area between KCC and diamond head. I used to be a military building that was demolished but not it has this concrete structures/debris they use to skate. He talk about pillar, blocks and the like. Big place, a quarter of a mile or so big. He mentioned that according to what I was saying about PK itd be good for us to train there. I was looking on google maps and found nothing.

He says it is on the ledge of the mountain, a bit hard to see from the road but can be seen some. I dont have a car to go there and try to find it but I was wondering if anyone know what it is.

Ryan, think you can try to finds/scout this place on your next "mission"?

Also, the paint ball course by Nimitz has some building that look really sweet. Was trying to find a website to it but nothing. Again, I dont have a car to go, but I am down to go there talk to the owners or something about maybe using the place, performing or something in exchange for signing some waivers and train there. If anyone is down to go with me, let me know.

I unstickied Crazy Talk. We'll just let it fade naturally... or unnaturally.
There are a couple things along the N/ NE crater wall on the sat photos... nothing that big, tho.
Military might be area to NE of Diamond head. Looks like buildings still on sat photos. Maybe it got destroyed?

It'll fade then come back then fade and the cycle continues. Down on Nimitz? You mean the highway right? If that's the case I'd be down for what ever, I live semi close to the highway, just a little walk out the back gate and Nimitz is in my face.

DISTRICT 13 ULTIMATUM
BANLIEUE 13 - ULTIMATUM

Hawaii Premiere

District 13, two years later. The separating wall – ever higher, ever bigger, ever longer – has extended around the ghetto-like housing estates and the gangs that thrive there have increased their influence even further. Damien, a cop specialised in martial arts, and Leïto, who is able to infiltrate into the district’s darkest corners, once more form a team. Their method involves energetic fighting and chases that defy the laws of gravity.

Chiemi - You were putting up flyers at UH - how did that go?
Maori is interesting. Sometimes if I change a couple letters, I recognize the word in Hawaiian - atua=akua, tane=kane, etc. I really hate the old grammar books from 1850 - 1930. "Na tenei tamaiti aku i hopu te tahahe." Who is going to say that, except Shiloh's mom or dad? :D And it wasn't really a thief, just some jerk throwing bricks and stuff at their house.

I guess I'll have to wait for highlights of B13 U to come out on-line. Belle had one move - out the window to the landing above - that totally looked like it was done with wires.

Ozzi - Thanks for putting Erwan's vid on front page. Now if he would only hurry up with his training tips/ book/ whatever for those of us who can't [afford] to travel to one of his seminars/ cert workshops. I don't see that happening for at least a year.

Hey Chiemi - Hope a bunch of people show up. Pics would be nice. I'm trying to think if I wandered around UH-Hilo when I was "working" over there... I don't think so.

I've was talking to a guy from Lanai yesterday... unfortunately he just likes to talk about free running, and is scared[?] to try it. He was a fat kid until recently, so never enjoyed doing physical things.

Derek - any suggestions for people who want to work up to front flip, but are nowhere near making it yet? The safety pads are nearly flat from me landing back/ butt first :P
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Derek broussard on October 19, 2009, 06:13:10 PM
Its hard to give advise without seeing the flip first.

  Are you trying them standing  or running? off of things?

Simple advice for a Front flip would be

1) DO NOT look down, you go where your head goes. keep your head up and you will get more hieghth (hint even if you have to arch your back to set your jump.)

 2)  use your feet as much as possible for your rotation. It should feel like your kicking your head and then tucking to follow.

3) untill you learn your air sense  front flips are hard(er than backs) because of the blind landing, most people under or over rotate them.


 If you throw up a video I could help out more,

Post by: Derek broussard on October 20, 2009, 04:46:55 PM
If I was a Kung Fu artist I would be able to do some wild scorpion kick with my foot going behind my body . If I bent my knee a little more it would probly kick the back of my head.  Try that with both feet and you land on your head.   Instantly follow that with a tuck and you'll do a front flip. 


I'm having trouble explaining it on my iPhone.   Adult gym and I'll help you out.  If no can then I'll try post video/ photos later

Man, I was so mad last night. I missed the first 12 minutes of Ultimate Parkour Challenge. Then, I had to shut it off after Daniel A's face plant. My wife couldn't handle it. "Did you get off work early just to see that?" [No]. Shower, errands, baking, "Beaches"...

I tried again at 12:30, missing the whole first half of the show. "Are you going to learn to flip? You could learn to flip at the pool. This is too dangerous. [After the re-runs of Ryan's BarclayCard fall]. Why don't you go back to surfing? I don't like that set. I don't want you training with HIM [Brian O - after his fall]. You're not going to be doing THAT are you? [20+' drops]. Ilabaca was the best. He had the best flow. Where is he from? I like Ozzi's videos better. I like the whole feeling of Hawaii parkour videos more..."

Man, I was so mad last night. I missed the first 12 minutes of Ultimate Parkour Challenge. Then, I had to shut it off after Daniel A's face plant. My wife couldn't handle it. "Did you get off work early just to see that?" [No]. Shower, errands, baking, "Beaches"...

I tried again at 12:30, missing the whole first half of the show. "Are you going to learn to flip? You could learn to flip at the pool. This is too dangerous. [After the re-runs of Ryan's BarclayCard fall]. Why don't you go back to surfing? I don't like that set. I don't want you training with HIM [Brian O - after his fall]. You're not going to be doing THAT are you? [20+' drops]. Ilabaca was the best. He had the best flow. Where is he from? I like Ozzi's videos better. I like the whole feeling of Hawaii parkour videos more..."

aww man that sux... is that what your wife said?

I had to work, got home at about 10:12, flipped the tv off "Beaches" and onto UPC... so I missed the entire Banana video, but got to see the second one. Then I got to see the first 2 guys run Stage 2. Woo.

Geri's watched a fair amount of parkour videos - she's the one who originally saw "Jump Britain" being shown on PBS and called me in to watch it. I've shown her several of Ozzi's vids, mine, Shiloh's, Kat from Monos Urbanos, Belle, Foucan, a lot of Parkour Generations... and who knows what she's watched on her own. Read Foucan's book... She's probably reading this, right now. Hi, lovey!

I'm making fun of her a bit, because I was mad about missing the show and having to stay up late. She forgets that she used to have to patch up her windsurfing friends all the time when they got reefed, or bashed up by a boom... and she doesn't want me to get hurt.

Hmm, caring and over - motherly-protective are two different things. I much proffered to hear you say she supports you and want you to challenge carefully. For some it makes me believe you and your wife are very different person. But hey a least she watched it with you.

Over-protective? Sometimes. One minute she's encouraging me to learn to flip, and trying to figure out ways to train them. The next minute, she's watching somebody face plant, so she's like "No way".

Not sure if you have noticed guys but there have been some very minor changes on the HIpk  (http://hawaiipk.com/)front page, some of which are just aesthetics.

I am looking to hopefully put some background on it also. Not sure if I would go with some beach like pic or something more PK urban like. It would only be on the sites so it cant be something to crazy, just simple and easy to look at.

Anyway, I am always open to suggestion, this is your site and I want to keep it a appealing and easy to surf as possible while offering everything we need. I wanted to have a comment option on the front page news but that will have to wait. In the mean time you can rate the post though.

 Also, I added icons that will identify the type of news as;

 (http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c29/ozzi_21/mediaicon.png)Media  = Anything related to Parkour/Freerunning exposure on the TV/Radio etc.
 (http://americanparkour.com/images/stories/icons/Video_Media.jpg)Videos = Youtube, submission from the community, or anything related PK/FR videos not from media exposure.
 (http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c29/ozzi_21/article.png)Articles = Found online, written by us etc.
 (http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c29/ozzi_21/randomnews.png)News = About PK/FR anywhere in the world
 (http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c29/ozzi_21/hipknewsicon.png)HIpk News = Anything related to the HIpk community or a post that really has not much significance but HIpk wants to share. The flash game I posted for example.

 I am sure Ill make some others that will rarely get used (new tutorial is one of them) I am not sure if that covers all, I wanted to make one just for the jams or session announcement. Was thinking a group pic maybe. Not sure really, I might go with a little silhouette as that represent training, yeah?

 Any suggestions for that in particular and any other are always welcome. Remember you can submit news anytime also, videos, pics anything really. Just email me at Ozzi@americanparkour.com

Don't go urban. Everybody in the world can do urban. Go either Hawaiian or Hawaiian urban. A beach would be ok. Diamondhead would be better. It could be as complex as rails at the beach with Diamondhead in the background. ;D The purpose is to say right off: This is Hawaii, this is parkour.

I find the new page really cluttered looking.

I like seeing Shiloh's video up there. I saw the camera out on the counter today, so maybe I'll grab it when whoever's using it's done, and shoot a short video.

I like the older pk game more than the new one. Am I just too slow?

Some links still go to the HawaiiPK.com forums. Might want to change that.

I know the new game was just news. I'm just saying I'm BAD at it ;D Some of the circles are stinking small.

Links: Injury prevention, Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Magazine and Star Bulletin all link to the HawaiiPK forum.

Cluttered... because there are many different colors and columns and boxes all fighting for my attention. It's not as bad as my desk here at work, but it's close. Tell you what - I'll clean up my desk, and you clean the front page. ;D

I noticed one of my friends from South Africa was out of breath. Turns out she'd been inactive for a long time due to knee injury. So I grabbed Pilou's June translation of Hebert's "Practical Guide", showed her how to toe-heel walk [less impact], suggested barefoot walking, and pool workouts. Gave her a quick demo of some very simple things she can do.

In 2 minutes she went from bummed to excited, and I was the one breathless, from talking more than I usually do in a whole day.

Another friend from Singapore was curious.

Thanks for your encouragement, guys. Without you, I would have just read the book and forgotten 99% of it. Now it's helping me help other people.

Well, Hebert's "Practical Guide" is on the front page of both APK and HIpk. I feel ... nervously glad.

It was a lot of work, and I think most people will glance at it, then set it aside as curious but outdated.

I'm half expecting to be put on Erwan and the Hebertist hate lists.

What I REALLY wish is that the Hebertists would say, "Look. This is wrong, this is outdated, we do this a different way now. This is right, you seem to understand this point. Did you know we have an updated manual? It's in Flemish, or Frisian, or some strange dialect that Google can't translate... but a couple of us are coming to Maui on vacation, and we'd love to throw you off a cliff... I mean... show you the new material." ;D

Sigh...

I looked up a couple things, but didn't really see anything in my price range [free or they pay me ;D ]

Since I'm on a "pay as you go" cell phone plan, I wonder if this would wipe out my minutes really fast -- 15 of you typing messages back and forth... I think I'll hold off until there are more people here on Maui. It looks like it may be worth a try if there are 10-15 of you who are interested. At $2-3 each, it may be worthwhile.

The one that was REALLY confusing was the city names. That's what they had when I started, I think. I was like "I'm not from San Francisco! I'm from Maui!" Took me a bit to understand it. I don't remember the rankings exactly - it was like SF, Denver, DC, London, Paris.

Hey thanks for the shout on the main hawaiipk page. I appreciate it, I ended up relizing that my sample slide show was only showing one image.

  If any one is interested in doing a pk photo shoot  send me an email. Ignore the prices on my website since im still learning how to shoot pk. I think I would charge about 8$(for all photos) or the price of lunch.  IF you have a REALLY sick idea then I would prob be willing to do Time FOR Prints (photog language for free shoot.)

Post by: Gregg HIPK on November 18, 2009, 04:08:39 PM
I was reading some old PkGen articles today. Dan Edwardes talked about Stealth (http://www.parkourgenerations.com/articles.php?id_cat=1&idart=24). A good landing is a quiet landing. The more muscles you can involve in any movement, the more power and control you will have.

One of the best methods for developing your stealth, and hence your muscle control, is to practice what are affectionately known as ‘Stealth Runs’.

These are effectively uninterrupted periods of movement, over any terrain, often at night, wherein the goal is simply to move as quietly and efficiently as possible. Speed is not important here, nor particularly are aesthetics. Just move, interact with whatever comes your way, but always do it silently. If training with others, monitor each other’s noise levels, see if you can hear the one ahead and the one behind – and if someone is too loud, let them know about it with a definite ‘shush’.

The concept of a Stealth Run is not to sneak about, but rather not to draw attention to yourself. The aim is to move fluidly and in harmony with your environment, such that people simply do not notice you are there because you are not generating any stimuli that their senses might pick up on. This is a great way to train your body as well as your immediate spatial awareness, and it’s great fun too. Try it: but try it quietly.

Is this maybe the difference between good PK and good FR? One uses movement to seek not-notice, and the other screams out "Here I am! Look at me!" Something to think about, I guess.

Post by: Gregg HIPK on November 19, 2009, 03:53:22 PM
The cool thing is you don't have to even leave your house to do this, Michael. Put on some combat boots or something heavy and loud.  Walk. Try to reduce the noise to 0, or as close as you can get. Then try other footwear, other surfaces. Gravel and cinders are hard surfaces, since they slide all over each other. When you're super quiet at walking speed, then try increasing the speed and distance.

I did this with dress shoes on tile yesterday at work. It was the only workout I got, and I totally forgot about it.

 So I was a little slow but I finaly caught on, Everybody was using their REAL names. MY bad, so I switched to the real me...

 I think training noise discipline can be supper fun..  even in the daylight.

  blindflolds
  water balloons
  obsticals

  the "noise detectors" sit  blindfolded with water balloons.  and will toss the balloons in the direction of the noise they hear, if any.
 
  the runners goal is to make it across the variouse obsticles without getting wet or herd.

lol I could see someone abusing the rules and just throwing water balloons randomly, But sounds like fun... lets try this at the next jam.  The only issue is that as you've seen parkour gets a little iffy when stuff gets wet, so might wanna make sure it doesn't make it too unsafe.

This game sounds good for a cool-down game. Doesn't need parkour obstacles, just a noisy surface. By that time I'd be WANTING to be hit by a water balloon. This game would work better with a water hose. ;D

haha, If that's the case then I'd just run across as fast as I could and hope that the person who's blindfolded can't throw very well.

Water balloons are just too difficult. That's why I'd use a good strong hose. Of course, what you'd want to do is move until someone very quiet was between you and the guy with the hose, then make noise so the quiet guy got soaked and you were mostly shielded. ;D

Or sneak up behind the person with the hose and scare them. Then duck, dive and roll so they sprayed a whole ton of people.

My friends and I used to play a game like this in our backyard. We always got wet and dirty. It was a lot of fun.

Something similar we did was make a large "maze" in the background. The person who was IT had a water pistol and would try to tag you as you all were running around the maze. Once you were on a path, you couldn't turn around, but all the paths looped and interconnected. This would work on a large beach , too.

Hey Ozzi - with all this talk of waterballoons, and since it's getting to be rainy season, I did a short... kinda short... summary of a Dan Edwardes/ PkGen article on rain training. It should be over at HIpk. I should have copied it into "Going Natural" but I forgot to. :P

It was more designed for a British audience, but the principles still apply here...

 For teaching, I think if you can build up a few moves you can do well, it gives you the confidence to share them. Ozzi and Ryan and I kinda talked about it a little in the "What to teach first timers" thread. Lazy's a good choice.

Happy December to all of you! A few things for your enjoyment:

In "Going Natural" I've started threads on walking [and barefoot], running, climbing, and QM - updating some of the "how to" of MN. It's not my ideas, but stuff stolen from people who [hopefully] know a lot more about the subject than I do. If you find good information, please add it.

This is my post 1111. It's a fun number, and I think I'll keep it for a while. I've got some time consuming projects coming up. I also want to invest some time into other writing and art projects. It has to come from somewhere...

I'll still be posting in my training log. Maybe Ozzi's. I'll keep AOL on for a while, Ozzi - I finally reset my password. ;D

Okay, this past sat UH jam was tons of fun...buildering was involved a bit...pretty much started off 40ft-50ft up and worked way down without use of stairs or elevators.  Had some maintenance guy check us out, telling us to be safe and not put weight on corroded piping...since he didn't want to have to fix it ;D. 

I think someone should note that Chris is back home visiting family and won't be back till Jan 7th I think...so unless someone wants to lead those sat jams they are suspended till further notice.  I'll post if I go...actually since UH is essentially shut down till Jan 3rd to save energy costs, there will be big open campus for us to fool around on...hint, hint...no one will be there!!!

anyone have jewels number?  I have the perfect spot to do some training on the more risky side...Makapu'u lighthouse, except we don't use the trail.  Point A could be Makapu'u beach and point B could be Sandies or the lighthouse (no use of any trails or roads hugging the coast).  Swimming, climbing, running, I'm ready to go...it looked so beautiful today I almost just went for it. 

All I would need for this would be a day that the weather agreed with our plans, meaning small surf and light winds.  Anyone down to join in lemme know and you can help me plan it out.  One thing I wanna have some knowledge about is what the currents along the coast are like.... just in case we have to deal with people falling in the water, I wanna know where the current would take them in the unlikely event they couldn't make it back to shore.  The only other place I've done something like this is going around black point just for fun, it was scary as crap, but a rush i haven't felt in a while.  If any of you fellow calculated risk takers have suggestions for me in terms of gear I should bring, weather I should go under, or safety precautions I should take let me know!!!

 Go on a light kona wind day, with  check SNN for surf conditions if you plan on getting wet..
 
 A part of me really doubts there is enough land to go around  makapuu to sandys. My friend swam it when the currents where right and said it was a very long swim.

Makapu'u lighthouse area - there are areas where the cliff, especially the lower part, looks sheer, with no level ground at the bottom. I wouldn't try unless you're comfy doing 3000 m [about 2 miles] open ocean swimming. May be easier to head inland before you get to the lighthouse.

I'm sure Derek can double-check on a better topo map. I'd try a couple easier ones first.

Post by: turtlekarma on December 31, 2009, 04:00:51 AM
I should've been a bit more clear.  I expect to swim and climb, not just climb.  I expect to be able to do it, but I'm not 100% sure the entire way will be passible or even if getting in and out of the water will be as challenging as I imagine it to me.... I don't know anyone who has tried this, so I'm gonna do my research the best I can and just go for it.  Of course, if I don't like it...I'm not gonna do it, but since I've got the idea in my head I'm at least gonna go check it out.  I've done open water swimming before, but never with heavy currents so I want to know what to expect when I go (still trying to find a detailed report on the area).  Timing the conditions will be the difference between being slammed into the rocks or being able to swim onto the little shelves there.

Ryan - I knew you were planning to swim and climb. I'm just suggesting try a couple places where it's easier to get to, first. Also, see if you can find someone with a kayak or something - wouldn't hurt to have some water-based assist if you needed it.

Its optimistic to think we, humans, will even have the same numbers on population by then if on this earth at all. Its sad to know those numbers, but I have more hopes that ours would be even lower.

 Pessimistic? Nah, I think this earths needs a cleansing, that included some  of us [in large scale] to be gone.

Shiloh texted me at Christmas. He's having computer problems again/ still. Surf is up on north shore, so I'm sure he's spending a lot of time on the water.

Thanks for showing me that spot ozzi and david.  I learned that a 300lb boulder aint got nothing on david's badass...you shouldn't do handstands on certain rocks unless its to gather spiritual energy...and I'm ready to go again.

Sigh. Someone finally threw out my barbell. It was an old nasty rusty thing that I had hidden at work near the LP gas tank. I guess it's back to lifting rocks and logs again for my monthly test. Or I could check Craigslist...

Congrats for the posts, pity for the face plant. Jiyoung hasn't mentioned it since, so it must be healing ok.

awww no reason to feel bad you never knew  ^^ and im a noob though...yes a noob NOT a newb... lolz i suck more than a newb... xD  at least ryan and ozzi taught me a few tricks but i nvr got a chance to practice them because my body was sore until 2day since the day after i was taught (sunday) (and idk y i was sore...maybe cause i nvr stretched?)

anyways it really wasnt much of a face plant and it was from low hieght lolz... but funny thing is yesterday i fell on my tailbone by the same exact bandroom haha and the wall wasnt even thin it was rock and it was pretty thick and as wide as my foot (toe to heel) lolz i know im kind of a klutz... just ask ryan wen i had managed to do so many "bails" wen he was teaching me lolz and the "bails" was a coincidence haha dang im so embaressing haha

Yeah stretching helps but you probably weren't used to moving like that...plus half the time your butt was bumping into the rail.  Next time we'll find height appropriate stuffs.

well he was...first he was in korean army then when he moved to hawaii went into US army...he was in rangers...anyways idk wat rank he was in korean army but he was colonel here but quit when i was like 4 years old...  and if u never knew the korean army has one the world's most toughest training...im not 100% sure but i think it's 2nd place...idk

but my dad's friends are in college and he knew them through church... they are in air force, navy, etc....  but the thing is i really respect soldiers and its not cause my dad... i nvr knew my dad was in army until i was like 11 years old... and i love watching war movies base on real life (favorite is "Band of brothers" cause u just gotta respect them and its kinda sad how some people dont even acknowledge them...i always say hi to them whenever i see them but most of time im just too shy to talk to them haha but the things i would ask or talk stories about haha...

its so kool that u in army...

sry about wrong grammer and lotta typing people  ^^

The pics not me, I just liked it. Some guy named Hanalei diving in the little islands above Niihau. He speared the ulua and had to fight it for 30 minutes. 80# if I remember right.

I want to do some underwater parkour pics, but it's hard to do by yourself, especially with no underwater camera ;D
Figured this was as close as I can get for right now...

ok so im saying this again but

Im planning on having a painball birthday party on march 27 and i was wonder if you guys wanted to come...i want to go bellos or whaever the place is called but its cause it got that natural foresty environment for paintball and idk if other paintball places have that too with the "if you get hit you have to go touch that tepee shaped thing so you wont be out, then u can hop back in the game" rule...because sucks if you get hit once and you out...no fun...

When: MARCH 27 SATURDAY
Why: B-day party (real birthday is march 23)
Where: bellos but not confirmed yet
What we doing: Paintball  ^^ (but you guys gotta go easy on me cause this would be only the 2nd time im playing)
Time: undecided
What to bring(in case you never went paintball before): long sleeve shirt, long pants, hats/hoodies (so paint wont go in hair...yuck Xp), money for renting paintball gun(forget how much), paintballs(about $20 for 150-300 paintballs *forgot*), container thing to hold paintballs during game with pouch thing to hold containers, i forget what else you can rent if there are any i didnt name...

People are still posting at the old HIpk forum! [Mostly spammers]. One spammer had 285 posts.
Do you think we should keep the old forum OPEN, LOCK it, or DELETE it?

I don't know - I'll email him
Or one of you can ask him in person.
I have 2 ideas what it MIGHT be, but nothing solid.

*** ALERT ***
There has been a rapture of high level traceurs: Ozzi, Skipper, Zac "HappyDude" Cohn, and possibly others. We have been left behind to face the Great Tribulation. Sorry, dudes, and dudettes...  :o

Yes, add Travis Noble, Ryan Ford, .5gibbon, SkyNative, Corndogg to the list of the Vanished.

Thanks for noticing... I haven't seen any other threads about it. Then again, I don't know all the other high level people.

Corndogg's posting at SFPK, but nothing about APK. Curious and curiouser...
COPK forum is APK forum, so that's no help. [Ryan Ford]
MadPK is Muse, and she wasn't affected.
NYPK has nothing... UFF... PkGen... Overflux... PKNA... New England PK...

I'm going to stop wasting my time on this...

Oh, BTW I won 3rd place in the Training Contest...

  I didn't have problems. I just grabbed some important papers and my laundry bag. It had all the clothes I normally wear, so when the tsunami didn't hit, I just did my laundry. I had to be at work all day, which is above the evacuation zone, and very sturdy. They postponed a couple hours for safety, then back to business as usual.

  Another 14 hour work day on 3 hours of interrupted sleep. :P

Post by: turtlekarma on March 08, 2010, 12:54:49 AM
Just wanted to share my hiking experience this sat with CT.

Noon:
We start up Manoa Falls Trail 0.8 miles
12:15pm: We reach the end of Manoa falls Trail and meet up at intersection of Aihualama Trail and Pauoa Flats Trail...CT and I head up Aihualama Trail as planned 1.3 miles
12:50pm We reach the end of Aihualama Trail and continue up Nu`uanu Trail 1.5 miles + 0.75 mile hike up to ridge line
2:20pm We reach the summit of the Nu'uanu ridge line...up in the clouds

From then until around 6pm we hike this gnarly "trail" that probably never receives any maintenance since it was made by some random trail blazers.  The ridge line in my estimate isn't much longer then 1.5 miles - 2 miles...but what made it difficult was the state of disrepair that the trail was in.  We must have gone up and down +12 peaks along the way.  the "trail" on average was barely visible 50% of the time...vegetation covered it or it had fallen off due to erosion, we had to backtrack multiple times due to the fact that anything that looked like a line could've been the trail.  CT lead most of the way since he had studied the trail before we went up...plus he wasn't gimped and I was starting to get dehydrated.  Most of the time we were in the clouds, so it was difficult to tell where the next hump or dip in the ridge line was, but honestly there was only one way to go and that was forwards.  The "trial" itself was at best 5in wide and at a extremely steep angle...most of the time it was better to step inside of the trail onto the thick vegetation since it had so many holes in it...holes that lead to a sheer idk 1000ft drop (bad guess idk how high we were up).  One time, I'm pretty sure I saved CT's life, by pulling him up after he slide off the edge and was just holding one to some random plants that happened to be there to grab...just like he saved mine by keeping me motivated.  We made 4-5 stops to collect ourselves physically and maybe more importantly mentally. 

6:00pm we finally make it to Wa'ahila ridge, at this point I know I'm dehidrated and probably will only physically deteriorate more and more if we continue...however my spirits were up, cause we survived the ridge trail and I could see the trail beneath my feet.  I call my friend and ask him to come pick us up at the Chinese cemetery in the back of manoa valley in 45mins, cause I know that when I'm done that I won't be able to drive.  oh and at this point we officially ran out of water.

6:45pmthe sun is starting to set and we are half way down Wa'ahila ridge 1.2 miles where we take a side trail into manoa valley.  it's a well kept trail that is very wide and slopes gently.  The down side is that it is covered in a thick canopy that doesn't let very much light in.  My friend calls me asking me where we are, his dad is with him a retired police officer.  We were supposed to be done by now..

7:30pmThe sun had set and visibility had dropped to 1-2ft...not enough to know where to put your feet and how to shift your weight.  To make matters worse, I was officially dehydrated and motor functioning started to deteriorate rapidly.  The trail was slopped and covered with roots and rocks randomly which made it challenging to traverse with my depth perception so bad due to fatigue and poor visibility.  I stumble more often then I find good footing, this was not due to a difficult trail, it was more that mentally and physically I was reaching my limit.  I don't know physically how good or bad CT was doing at this point, but I know he was exhausted more then was good and probably a little dehydrated.  The thought of having to continue in the morning wasn't far from our minds. 

8:00pmAt some point we lose the trail and stumble upon a stream that seems to be heading out of the valley, now the terrain is difficult...we fall into multiple pools of old collected rain water.  At this point my mental capacity is about that of a really tired 6 year old...I'm driven by three things. 
1.  Food and water
2.  Pride (i don't want to have anyone come and save me)
3.  CT
CT starts using his cell phone as a flash light...I try to copy, but I needed my gimped hand free to help me balance.  The terrain is like any stream that's no cleared, lots of boulders and dead/rotten foliage all around.  kind of like an wet obstacle course where some of the solid looking obstacles break when you try to put weight on them.  At this point CT becomes my cheerleader, and I basically try to keep my mouth shut because I know anything that I say wouldn't be helpful besides from the occasional thanks or letting CT know I need to rest.  My friend calls me to let me know that he and his dad will be waiting for me to call them if we needed someone to call fire & rescue, or if we finally make it out.

8:30pm We are taking a break to collect ourselves...at the pace we're going probably 100ft every 15-20mins.  We spot what looks like a house 50ft away (we weren't 100% sure cause foliage was so thick), we stumble towards it and knock on the back door and this guy in his mid 30's looks at us and asks us what we want.  He points us to the road and I tell him that he's a beautiful man with a beautiful house and a beautiful dog that wont stop barking at us.  My friend picks us up, we go to pick up my car which was still parked in manoa falls and we eat pizza.

moral of story...be better prepared.  Mentally an physically me and CT were ready for a 4 hour hike.  We didn't bring flash lights or food...and only he brought water.  I figure it was a 8-9mile hike...which in a straight line is nothing, but this was some of the most difficult terrain I've hiked.  At least me and CT did it and are closer from sharing the experience.  Honestly it was overall dumb to do it the way I did it...gimped arm, no water, food, or flashlights...and a very poor estimation of how long it would take.

 AWESOME!!!

 I LIVE FOR EXPERIANCES LIKE THAT

    Living life on the edge of death, trecking through the mountains, swiming through the depths of the ocean, defeating a clan of ninja assasins.... These are the type of experiances that build your character, morals, and self pride. NOT sitting at home and playing vgames or whatching tv.

 
  Things I would have done different.
 
      Water-  I usually trail run and will bring one water bottle with a water filter attached. (http://www.lifesecure.com/images/medium/70040.jpg)  Amazon sells um for a good price (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dsporting&field-keywords=water+filtration+bottle+)   you want to make sure that it says it protects agains micro oraganism or pathogens as in your situation cryptosporidium could have killed you painfully if you drank from a bad stream or pond.

 Food isnt as important, we can go a very long time without food.

 head light would have been nice... but if you pack too much then it just gets rediculas,  my advice would be to practice/learn some survival skill so that you are more comfortable being "stuck" in the woods.

JC is active but his work blocked APK...tell us your story gregg!!!

And Derek, I think I should've either brought a power bar some something...8 hours with no food and constant physical activity is hard from me, I don't train that way.  My big mistake was eating a crappy breakfast...which included 1 malasada and 1 shrimp tempura with some water to drink.  but yeah, I'll show you the trail on a map if you like?  I think 6-7 hours in peak condition and with supplies should be doable...bring long pants and a wind breaker...maybe some rope...but CT and I didn't use any.

JC was just telling me he had a VERY bad experience with Lepto. Fortunately, he didn't go into a lot of detail with me. I'm sure if you asked him nicely he could tell you, tho.

Oh - THAT story...
There's a section of the old hand-built King's Highway around the southern part of Maui. I didn't pack enough water, and I was on my own. I went far, fast, ran out of water and trail... I was way overheated and delusional. I still had to get back. I knew I was in trouble. Slowing down and splashing sea water wasn't helping. There were no people. I saw one lost cow, and it had the sense to be in shade.

I saw one junky shack. There was some water in a closed plastic pail. "Kitty Water" so you know it's going to be nasty, but at that point...

Anyway, I got down to 137 after drinking that... not sure how long it took to get all the parasites out of my system. Weeks of stomach aches.

@ Ji - get a good moisturizing lotion, like Jergens. You can remove callus from your hands, especially right after a hot shower - file or scrape it like giving yourself a full pedicure. Callus is your skins way of toughening, so it probably is from rails. No worries.

ji, nobody has soft hands in pk...I don't know if you noticed, but we're not especially kind to our hands.  no scars unless you scab...but even then they aren't that noticeable.  lotion and smoothing out callus (grind down with sand, pumice stone, soak in water) works best...for keeping hands "pretty" and "soft." 

also, I doubt gregg would've drank the water if there was another way.  Heat exhaustion and dehydration can seriously damage internal organs or even kill... not liking stomach aches isn't a good reason to forgo water in a situation like gregg poses.  It was a gamble, but one that seems to have paid off since gregg isn't "that" crazy :-Sarcasm from drinking that water and he's still with us  ;D.

@Gregg. Yea JC was like the all time expert on lepto ><
@Ji. But callused hands are like, the trademark of traceurs! Jen mentioned once about someone who described david belles hand after shaking it."Tough. Very, very tough" lmao

We(aiea traceurs) recently ventured down into the Aiea valley. We found a river, probably the Aiea stream. I drank from it. was really clear/clean it looked like. That was saturday. Im perfectly fine 0____0

Trail mix ftw!

Seriously when i go hiking all bring is like, salted nuts/dried fruits. or an MRE lmao. but those have crazy high sodium content >___<
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on March 09, 2010, 11:57:36 AM
@ Ji: If you want your hands to go back to no callus, it doesn't take that long. No scars. As long as callus is flexible and soft, it's useful. If it's hard and cracky, and is pulling away from your skin, then it's past time for the pumice stone. ;D

Kitty water: There was no choice, really. Drinking saltwater dehydrates you. I was already terribly dehydrated and overheated. There was no mud, no other water. There was no help for miles in any direction. If I had been in the exact same situation, I would drink the water. I think I would filter it better, but I wasn't exactly thinking clearly at the time :P

@ Ryan: the crazy isn't from drinking the water ;D Thank you.

@ Sala: I think the David Belle interview said his hands were like linoleum.
You can pick up parasites and still feel ok. You're pretty healthy, so your body probably killed them off without you noticing.

I like hiking as light as possible. For a short hike, I'll load up on water before. Dried fruit/nuts are good. I like hiking where there's plenty guava, too. Then I get food + moisture, too.

I<3 Guava. Especially up aiea loop trail where theres choooke.
or mountain apples >.< when i *cough* wander*cough a couple miles of trail and find them.

Regarding water purification. I know that the Iodine tablets are one way. Thats what we used when we hiked haleakala last year. Tasted terrible though Clean>Taste. Boiling.....meh...unless its on a lightweight stove i dont think itd be ok for me. I have a tendency to get out of control with open fires -___- bad experiences.

On the note of Iodine, does anyone know if you could just pour straight liquid iodine into the water and get the same purification effects as the tablests?

@Ji: If you really don't want to use lotions I suggest a good pair of harbinger fingerless gloves, real tough on the palms. I lost my right hand glove but that's okay, since my left hand glove is still around, it still protects the weaker hand.

Here's what I remember from the early days of HIpk. Ozzi, can you fill in the parts I wasn't there for?

Ryan: You've probably gotten the early history of HIpk from Ozzi? Keith, Beaner, Ozzi & Peter Parkour? I don't remember who else had tried it.

Geri caught "Jump Britain" on PBS when she was channel surfing. She called me over, and we sat on the floor and watched it. That was prob Nov 2006. I found APK early Feb 07, but there was a problem with it. You could register, but new people couldn't post. I wrote M2 and Demon, and the bug finally got fixed April 2.

The first things I remember vaulting were the hood of my Honda Accord, pop vaulting up a vegetation Dumpster, going up a 7' wall by loading dock at work, gate vault at work. My first injury was hamstring, from trying that wall without warming up. Second was ankle from landing kinda sideways after vaulting Honda. When you're older, healing takes a lot longer. I probably reinjured that ankle 3 or 4 times before I finally took off enough time to let it really heal.

There was NOBODY else on Hawaii forum. Frosti was the mod. I'd missed Lorin Ball visiting Maui Oct 06.
As a joke I took the nickname "btay" = Parkay is to butter like btay is to parkour.

I arrived in the island about 2 months ago. Coming from a breakdance and gymnastics background I decided to give PK a try and oh man, do I love this??? I am seriously looking for people to run around the island or just practice, create a OAHU PK CREW. I live in Kaneohe my only problem is that i dont have a car yet, but there is a playground close to my house very nice to practice at. I dont care if you are starting or if you are a pro at it already, I just wanna find people who love to push their body to the limit to try this exiting new sport. PLEASE hit me up. edited out email, phone Leave a message I usually dont answer unknown numbers, so leave a message I'll hit you back.

Aug 27 07 Ozzi made like 4 posts about a forum at kalakupua.com he was starting up. [No longer exists]
If I remember, it was a meet-up site, kinda like Craigslist personals. I don't remember if I made a reply there. I think I did - said I was on Maui and we just left it at that.

Sept 12 Ozzi posted

 Hey guys my friend and i created an official hawaii PK forum
 www.hawaiiparkour.com
 My nick there is urban disturbance hit me up lets practice.
 Ozzi_21@hotmial.com

Ozzi tried to get in touch with me, and missed me in teaching cert thread. I know we hooked up on .net and I eventually made it over to HawaiiParkour.com ... The forum was like brick red, with black writing, yellow and white. Some people said it was the most unreadable site.

Keith was admin, and already by the end of Sept Ozzi was the only one posting there. When I posted he told me the site was dead. Keith was no longer posting. I think he may have posted ONCE in the time I was on that forum. After talking, we decided to keep HawaiiParkour.com going until we either got Keith to give Ozzi admin rights or we got a new site up.

We couldn't get any help from Keith. Ozzi talked to [kaos from New England PK, currently SFPK?], and he set up HawaiiPK.com for us. First forum post was Dec 8, advertising the HIPK First Annual BBQ Bash. From spelling and grammar you could tell it was Ozzi post.  ;D

This was the first post on front page of the new site:

Wednesday, 02 January 2008
Happy New Year
It's 2008. We've got a brand new site. The sun's shining. No, it's overcast. Shining. Raining. Whatevers. We live Hawaii.

We made the switch over Jan 4 2008. First 10 members were AdamMc, Ozzi, Richard "Peter Parkour", me, M2 [to say Hi], Urban Kung Fool from Pearl City, Drake Maddix [J Martinez 1 post], Oni [Shaun from the band BariBari 13, before he moved to Japan], Beaner [1 post], Chopsybobo [Avi 2 posts]

...isn't one text wall bad enough? Seriously, Ryan ;D

woah..thanks gregg tons of info here great dig!!!

okay now to respond about your idea about a talk story methodology...it won't work for my time frame.  If I had a year and some change to get it done, I think the talk story methodology you described would bring the richness of detail that I'm looking for out...but it's a slow process where the questions I'm concerned with addressing might take a while to get around to.  I have researched the talk story methodology, and it's development in Hawaii and other oral tradition cultures...it works, and it works even better when the "researcher" is apart of community like I am.  But it's extremely time consuming, not in the story telling, but the story analysis that I'd have to do.  I'm looking for patterns that expose themselves in discussions, from these patterns I make inferences on the phenomena I'm studying.  I'm trying to streamline the process, believe me if it were thesible I'd only use the talk story method. 

I think I have to be honest here...i won't get it right my first time, I will miss represent people and ideas...there will be conflicting time lines and what not.  Research is a process, i want to begin the process with understanding pk communities and what kind of people do pk by my project.  I'd like it to be a holistic look into our community.  And the ideas you've suggested are valuable...and I would like to implement them in my study design...but a time frame of two to three weeks wont work.  I mean I do use a bit of the talk story methodology, but that is more to satisfy my curiosity.  I want questions answered, so I need to be specific.   BUTTTT!!! I do want to get the best data I can...so I do appreciate your idea about story sharing and am willing to do it, but I just wanted to let you know that won't be my main method of getting info.  I'm refining my questions I'm going to send to you, I think it would be best for me to give you one question at a time, because they are so broad.

Talk story will work fine for some of your general questions... like the history of a scene, etc.
It's sitting around with a recorder and the leaders of the scene at supper. Then you only have 2 hours or so to analyze.

You're part of the HIpk scene, but you're also part of the other scenes, too. I still feel "researcher" is the wrong role, and that "talk story" is totally feasible. "Researcher" only takes, only observes. "Talk story" gives and takes.

Since you'll have HIpk done, use what you learn here to streamline the process. Use HIpk stuff as an example, so they can focus on what you want.

Seriously look at "Back of the Napkin" as a way to organize and present data. Think about using it as a way to record info too, especially things like timelines. If you've got 3 people sitting around with you, drawing on a napkin or scrap paper, you'll be able to flesh the WHEN out quickly.

Then you ask "Is this right?" Because you have several people giving feedback, your chances of error are way less.

It's not ALL going to be sitting around with a group. One to one can still be talking story. It's less formal, less clinical, but you can still ask the same questions.

Like, "I was inspired to start pk by watching "Jump Britain". A couple days later I started jumping things around work: gates, loading dock, my car... How did you start, and what was your early experience?" It's a guided question, because you're sharing your experience as a way to show them the kind of info you want. Then you can always ask for details or clarification. Does that make sense?

Dude, you don't need to quote text walls. It only makes bigger text walls!

Gregg I googled "Back of the Napkin" and its a book?  are there PDF's I can download for free?  And as a researcher and a participant in the community, I want to give back by showing anyone who cares to look a snap shot of the HIPK community...I want to see how we're similar and different...how we coexist, and the underlying feeling of what PK however it is defined means to us.  I'll keep the talk story methodology in mind...how do you feel about my "interview" with you as the test pilot for it?  I can have my first "story" up by the end of this weekend.

hmmm, well how do you guys feel about me doing this project?  I'm curious...I know pretty much everyone I've talked to has been willing to let me interview them, so I'm guessing sharing your story isn't an issue...but just the fact that I'm "studying" our community does that bring up and feelings?  If there are neg's I'd like to discuss them and see how I can work to turn neg's into positives.  I'm talking about things like, what am I going to do with this information, how does my project benefit our community and individual people I work with...any thoughts

Sorry I haven't been here or out in the community lately. I've been studying and job searching so I only got on the computer to check E-mail and go to application sites. But I should be back... I hope. So what I miss?

Oh yeah, I've taken up breaking to help cardio and some parts of upper body strength. And I'm doing flexibility training and of course conditioning. I guess I'll still do Parkour a bit for fun at school and jams but I think I'm going to cut actual training until I actually prepare my body, except working on rolls and landings of course. I may have gotten decent (not really >.>) but I think I hit a wall that  I can't climb (wow bad pun...) in my training so I think I should fall back and relearn the basics.

"Back of the Napkin" is a book. I can show you some of the basics by ummm... drawing on a napkin. Otherwise, go to the library and look at a copy. Time well invested.

Ask away!

Breaking? as in Bboying? as in Breakdancing?

Im a bboy :D

Breaking for cardio? lol only for toprocking and footwork me thinks.
Alot of moves dont need upper body strength contrary to popular belief. Alot of it is mostly balance :p

I have 5 second AirChair ftw!

Post by: Michael Himes on March 14, 2010, 11:17:53 PM
Yes as in Breakdancing :P And I do the toprock and footwork the most >.> I just find them a lot of fun. But yeah where I'm at it helps upper body, since I can hardly push from headstand to handstand if at all. And a few other things like backwards roll to handstand plus what ever else I haven't tried and/or can't remember. I don't even know what an AirChair is...  I think. I can only put a name to the three step, six step, windmill, kip-up, headstand, and handstand.

Post by: Ozzi on March 15, 2010, 01:40:18 PM
Breaking does ask for a good upper body strength since you spend a lot of time on your hands, so that will definitely help. Like sala mentioned, it will also help your balance and your coordination. Plus is hella of fun.

Lol. Headstand>Handstand is hard. And back roll to handstand is hard to control. :p

Handstand moves period are bombin

Post by: Gregg HIPK on March 15, 2010, 03:25:26 PM
I can headstand to handstand [but not hold it very long]. You just have to be able to overhead press > body weight + balance. So I'm not so impressed with that ;D

I work with a former stunt man, Greg. Saturday he was giving me the theory on doing "thrown from a car" or "hit by a car". We got talking about PK/ FR so we may try some stuff in 3 weeks, after he does/ recovers from half marathon.

Ryan - here's an example... from Rain Dance to Parkour thread (http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,25098.0.html)

(http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh29/glamse/DSC00112-1.jpg)
If the extremes are AESTHETICS [or SHOW] v UTILITY and OPEN v OBSTACLES, what does my training look like, and where would I place it?

(http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh29/glamse/DSC00113.jpg)

Well, I'm not a STRICT utility person, like Dave from Northern Parkour. I'm not usually thinking about speed, efficiency or "is this useful". Most of my training is on open areas [beaches, roads], small to medium obstacles: rails, small walls. As the obstacles get more extreme [high trees, drops], I get more cautious and almost purely utilitarian. Also, as the obstacles get smaller, I also tend to just run, foot placement, etc. The little aesthetics kine I do is on small obstacles, but wearing costumes... hula girl, snorkel gear, robes beards and funny hats...

Note: Highlighter on napkin uses tons of ink :(

Post by: Gregg HIPK on March 15, 2010, 04:18:52 PM
Ryan - http://www.thebackofthenapkin.com/

WHO or WHAT - to show qualities - use a PORTRAIT [hard when everyone's a traceur. Maybe use photo or short video?]
HOW MUCH - to show quantity - use a CHART
WHERE - to show space or how things fit together - use a MAP
WHEN - to show time - TIMELINE
HOW - cause and effect - FLOW CHART
WHY - deductions and predictions - [messy multi-variable plots]

There are some walk-throughs and some concepts. The one I just did might be considered an idea map of "WHERE" I am in regards to training. When I originally did it, I wasn't thinking of small v. big obstacles. I was thinking "How dependent is this sport on obstacles?" When I went to add MY training, I started thinking about the labels differently, and it changed where I put myself. That's a problem, but a bonus. As long as the person EXPLAINS where they put themselves, and why...

Like, I originally would put Dave from NP right on UTILITY, probably where the top of my green area is. Jackie Chan is a showman who relies on obstacles and tools, so I'd put him closer to SHOW, and very high on OBSTACLES. Michael from HIpk Maui -- I'm thinking somewhere between gymnastics and free running? Ishi from the band I'm in is a tricker - very much in the open/ show corner. With this way of thinking, I would put myself between MN and PK, but not extreme utility... it would still end up looking about the same because of the running and walking I do.

 State trampopline championships are today

 seniors start at 2pm today, and goes till 430pm. The oldest competitor is 96 years old. So if your interested in seeing what our bodys should be capable of when we are almost a century old come down and watch  its free.

  Also I will be competing at 6pm till 8pm, Ive only been training for 2 weeks and should make a big fool of myself. Should be great fun to watch.

 Finals:

(http://sonofposeidon.smugmug.com/photos/829234193_td7Uw-L.jpg) (http://sonofposeidon.smugmug.com/Other/inet/11438066_5BZJK#829234193_td7Uw-A-LB)

 Yes I got beat by a 5-8 year old.  Trampoline is scored on 10 skills  three judges score on how clean (execution)  the moves are IE: toes pointed, legs together, knees straight............ ANd also how difficult ( DD) the moves are based on how many rotations and spins are in the move.  So a back flip is worth .4 because it has 4 quarter rotations. a double back has 1. ( i think)  because it has two rotations and double rotation bonus. 

  One judge watches your routine and figures out your D.D.   The five judges  watch your execution and deduct you per skill. ( out of ten)  the lowest and highest are dropped and the remaining three are  added together along with your difficulty.  So in theory and in practice  an 8 year old can perform his routine cleaner then a more difficult routine and get a higher score. This makes the comp pretty cool because it can be a comp with both men and women and different ages competing.   

  The first day was co-ed and split by ages.  The second day was finals and the top ten men and top ten women competed against each other.


  Day one went so-s0 

  on trampoline I ucked up my trampoline and ended up bouncing off on my 3rd skill so only two skills counted... I received a score of 5.0........last place and lowest score of the whole day.

  I redeemed myself with a very eccentric tumbling pass. fwd roll to front-flip straight to roundoff...whip, whip, whip, punch full ( front flip with a full twist).  It was pretty ugly but the crowed liked it.

 

  And on double mini where you run to a small trampoline and do to flips, I played it safe and went big and clean and ended up winning my age group due to one injury and another stumbling.



The second day

 second day I titled "redemtion" after falling off on tramp it was my time to redeem my pride.
   Only trampoline is competed in finals.  I recorded my  warm up
  http://www.youtube.com/v/Fr_od8pgv98&hl=en&fs=1

  since I was first to compete I was unable to record my actual comp. Under pressure I ended up forgetting 2 skillz. Which lowered my DD by .8 and subtracted 6 ( 2 pnts per judge) points from my execution,

Random thought I had while reflecting...

I feel like I can lose myself in movement, the difficult part is remembering how to breath the same when I'm not training.  How my understanding of the space we live in isn't the same as others...the difference between play and non play is a very confusing concept. 
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on April 27, 2010, 10:24:44 AM
Breathe in... breathe out... repeat...  ;D

The easiest difference between play and not-play I've seen is the path. When adults "work out" they run a mostly straight line. It may have turns in it, but overall, it's a straight line.

When kids and animals play, the path is all curves. There may be a straight line as they're along an obstacle, or going after a toy, but for the most part, the path is curves.

Parkour focuses on the straight line. Free running might - it depends on the runner.

lol @ gregg...that wasn't my fault


my review of the MTV thingy from tonight

hosts were boring/annoying, especially the white guy (what was his name, hasselhoff wannabe was it?)...actually on second thought it would've been fine without the white guy. 

the guys (competitors) looked really bored/annoyed just sitting there...I think it's really a waste of live television to just have them sitting there for 90% of the show...didn't look like they wanted to talk with the hosts anyway.  Why not let them play around, and have a film crew follow them around on the ship?  Cut in the cool stuff they do and bails they do and what not.  And, I'm kind of bored of the video intros...I'd much rather see their personality, who they are and how they approach PK...by doing clips of how they train, and kind of let that speak for itself accompanied by some commentary.     

First challenge was cool and creative, so well done there.  great concept and really showed some depth of the competitors.....however for me, the second challenge was really dull to watch, looks like fun to do... but really boring to see them do basically the same thing 5 times in a row.  I mean there were variations, but not really anything dramatic.  I can appreciate the refinement of skill that it takes to get that extra second or two, but for a mass audience who don't really care about much besides the ascetics of it, it's hard to tell the difference.  Drop the speed round unless you can have the option to take a diff paths that would be more or less just as efficient...like maybe have them start at opposite sides of the ship and see who gets to the middle 1st...yeah it's not 100% fair cause one persons run through might be "easier"...but at least that way you got variety. 

Summing it up, videos they showed were cool, live part pretty much sucked....oh and I hope you feel better soon PIP

Not saying it wasn't your fault, just SHE saw through your innocent facade... Of course, she may look at every male over 10 and under 70 that way... ;D

Saw someone named Oni_K looking at the HI boards. For a sec I was thinking, Oni from old forums is back?!? But he no wen post, and the old Oni would have. Even if he's still in Japan. Japanese punkabilly ;D

yeah yeah, you know how some states have state wide jams?  We could start that here, where once every summer we go to an island of choice to meet up with local group there?  Or maybe bunny hop to every island?  Give something to look forward to every summer for the HIPK community, and support communities just starting up...like Hilo?

I'm not sure what Chiemi's plans are for the summer. Staying in Hilo, or heading home for a couple months?Might be a good idea to check before you head over there. Summer might not be the best time if nobody's there.

um....its kinda sort of really fake.  I don't want to sound mean or anything, but just because you can make shoes water resistant and run at a curve...does not mean you can run on water.  The video is advertisement/prank...works well in both areas.  lots of little kids are going to be running full speed into water now (with shoes on) trying to run on water ... actually pretty sad.

No I did not, they just always ask for her.


Guys, so much to bring with me, nothing we have not done, just more of it, more family spirit. Jams are about to be different. If you think Im to harsh on conditioning, try doing what I have you guys doing for 5hrs straight. I did well and Im happy with my conditoning. I was definitelly pushed, still not knowing my limits but glad for what we all did.

So how are jams going to be different, well, we all need to work together, no more standing or sitting around. If you come to train you come to train. It is going ot be fun, challenging, tiring and and for the most part, rewarding. Very excited to come and share it all with you guys.

Ill post the days for the seminar soon. Stay tune.

  Sounds fun,  But remember Siting around and doing nothing  or doing activities half-cooked seems to be the local agenda.  Unless you plan on turning people away I think its going to be hard to get people of their asses

Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Ozzi on June 03, 2010, 06:32:24 AM
In reality it is basically going back to how our jams used to be long ago, more movement, more activities, more team effort. At this event there were all levels and they all participated regardless. It is all about trying, not cuz you cant do the move/exercises being shown doesnt mean you can still join and try your best.

I just got a bit demotivated at how some people really did not try to push themself and how unapreciative of my time and effort some people were... can anyone remember Jhonnys complains about conditioning?

Parkour is not for everyone, if you dont want to participate on the propers ways of training and just jump around, then parkour is simple not for you. With HIpk we will train the way it should be, for we are here to help make strong traceurs who are serious about the discipline.

Of course the occasional "im just exhausted and need to sit to recover" is fine... but like the yamakasi says, "We start together, we finish together" As one, as one soul, one core, one group.

Im not saying this is going to turn into a bootcamp, we will all still play, but if we want to really take advantage of what the environment has to offer, then we will all have to think and play together.

Cant wait to share the knowledge I gained with you guys.

They dont do anything that we dont, they are just more consistent about it.

I second that. I mean, i take the time to organize jams out here and the only things that i ask for are 1. To show up and 2. Warm up as a group. After that you can do whatever you want. Most times though, people just show up bump fists and then go off and do there own things. Why even bother showing up to a jam, if were not gonna jam...

I remember johnny alright. I sure as hell remember how the jams used to be long ago...long long ago. They were pretty intensive and got everyone involved even if they thought they could do it or not. Hell i remember i thought i was gonna die from Ozzis conditioning my first jam but i kept going none the less. Now its granted me bragging rights! No jk.

I lack the assertiveness to get people to condition/warm up for jams. But i figure, if they really wanna do it they will without me telling them or asking them to join in.

If anyone from aiea wants to go to a jam they will. Most All of them rely on rides to get to spots etc. This means if they dont have any sort of ride they wont go. Im pretty sure im the only one that often utilizs the bus to get to and from main spots etc. Personally i would make it to jams a lot more often, im more than capable of getting to any place on this island with out having to rely on anyone. But, alas, im one of the few people who are immensley busy on sundays. Hence the reason i hold my own jams throughout the week.

But it is summer. So maybe youl see me these next few months other than at Hawaii Acad.

What's up HI Traceurs? I've been practicing for a while now and train PK, gymnastics, martial arts, CF and anything else I can get my hands on. My wife, daughter and I do frequent hikes and workout sessions. My garage is a full gym for PK and CF. I'd love to start networking with some of the people in HI for jams and training sessions or even to just get together and work out. Ozzi, are you back from the mainland yet? Your hotspot map is pretty cool and I could help you expand it if you want. pictures, reviews etc. I've been training for a while but haven't really been a part of the community and I'm fairly new to the whole board networking thing. I'm getting some videos and pictures together and getting some of my buddies into PK as well.

This is getting long winded so, I'll cut it off. If anyone wants to train, check out the gym or anything like that, drop me a line.

Damn Derek. I know you from Hawaii academy. My wife and I were there the night you tore your MCL. I watched you do it. I've been into high level athletics and fighting my whole life and have had a fair share of injuries and breaks so, I know how it is. Good luck with the recovery and if you make it out to china town tomorrow, I'll see you there.

Can i come over?

Yeah man, anytime. I'm always looking for new guys to train with. There is also some great stuff to train on near my house. Some great electrical boxes with walls around them, climbable light posts, some great walls and an area behind a market with little security that has some good tic tac areas, precisions and a large stair case with railings. I'll get some pictures of it up on here. Anyway, anyone who is down to chill at my house after the jam tomorrow is welcome.

Thanks guys.
I'm picking myself up, dusting myself off, and starting all over again. ;D

I'm walking again, jogging a few steps if I HAVE to.
I found I get a lot more done if I stay off the forums.

I noticed that all the photo links in the Hebert book translations are broken :(
If I ever get some free time, I may try to fix them.

Thanks, Ozzi. It's good to be alive and walking. I tried a little parkour - teaching my bro in law the roll, qm, some basic vaults. Balance and qm games, foot placement, precisions, landings... I'm making progress. [The vaults were overdoing it tho ;D ]

Post by: Gregg HIPK on August 24, 2010, 03:52:11 PM
Ryan's right. New = bike flipped over the guard rail on the pali.
I was incredibly stupid, made a series of bad decisions:
Biking at night, too far, too fast, no light, no helmet, no shirt, no water, no phone, people didn't know where I was.
Something hooked my handlebars and flipped me over the guardrail. I only fell a couple feet, onto rock. Lucky no 100' tumble into the ocean. I got off lucky.

I took vacation from forums to spare you from my whining ;D
I continued the vacation because... I get more done, my job duties are changing, and I'm getting interrupted WAY more, bla bla bla.

Be strong to be useful... I've been thinking about that, since the accident. I was strong enough to get up, and push my bike for 2 miles before someone gave me a ride. I did a lot of praying. Thank God for locals with pickup trucks! I hope the blood washed off easy.

I was able to stay calm and focused. [I couldn't see how badly I was injured, which helped.] I even kept my sense of humor in ER, instead of whining and being overly dramatic. [Also thanks to Pascal Hardy for driving me to ER.]

But it could have been avoided so easily. I could have done this, I could have done that... If only... but it's too late for all that.

Now what? I'm not really sure. My wife, Pascal and other friends are encouraging me to go back to surfing. I tried SUP, but didn't really enjoy it. The water sports are pricey, too...

I know I'm going to stay active. I know I will play outside. I like playing games. I still like MN, tho my wife cringes whenever I start throwing rocks around...

Back to "Be strong to be useful"... being injured isn't strong or useful. It's being weak, and lying on my back for a week sure wasn't useful. It's humiliating, and frustrating, and aggravating... I have a lot more compassion for people who have suffered accidents way worse than mine, and tons of respect for any who still have a good attitude...

Being immobile made me a target. People I don't normally talk to because I'm off vaulting rails were able to catch up to me, talk with me, pray for me. They weren't usually my "friends", tho my close friends and family did rally around me right away.

Internet and forum friends are nice. I see I need to spend more time to develop a network of close relationships. "Be strong to be useful" when they're struggling. Not to get a reward, or even thanks... but just because I can help.

A challenge... life is fragile. Some times it only takes 1 mistake to really mess it up. I want to take time to make my life count. I'm going to try to risk more, make more of a positive difference. Jesus is my model. I don't know what all is involved. I know the direction I need to go and I can vaguely see the next steps... It's exciting, scary, and totally worth it...

Wow, good to hear it wasn't worse! I didn't have internet access for a while, so I missed that when it happened.

As far as your new direction... sometimes we are given subtle signs that we are meant to be heading down a different path.

Sometimes we get a swift kick in the arse...


On the good news side, I got a new phone, the EVO, and it's really pretty awesome!
I also got a HD camcorder, it seems awesome as well, but I really havn't had a chance to play with it. Going jeeping here in a couple weeks, it should get a workout then.

Post by: turtlekarma on September 13, 2010, 11:42:41 PM
um only saw this on facebook...

From Michael's Father - Michael is OK. He is hospitalized with a partially collapsed lung. He went rock climbing and tried to climb Koko Head on Sun. While rock climbing, his feet slip out from under him and he he hit himself on the rocks. He continued for 3 more hours before he started having trouble breathing while climbing Koko Head. We took him to the ER and he was admitted. He should be out in a 2-3 days.

I don't really know how we could have prevented this since he seemed perfectly fine before he left to do kokohead.  He did that after sundays jam was over.  In fact he was the only one after the jam that still had energy to go and do it.  I don't even remember him slipping and falling anywhere, I guess maybe that's something we could work on at jams?  maybe partnering up at all times so at least someone is at least always watching your back for possible injuries that might be more serious then they first appear?  anyway, hope you make a full recovery buddy.
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on September 14, 2010, 11:59:26 AM
Ouch. Michael, praying you heal quickly and completely.

He probably WAS ok when he left to do Kokohead. Doesn't say if the slip was with you guys or while he was alone. If he went on for 3 hours, maybe he didn't know he was badly hurt? Or it took him 3 hours to get to a place where his family could pick him up?

This is going to be a problem whenever we train alone, especially when we're pushing limits. Even walking on wet surfaces you could slip and hit your head.

How can you manage the risk? A few ideas based on what I often don't do:

* Train with a friend when you can
* When you train alone, let someone know general direction you're going, activity you'll be doing, when you expect to return.
* When you push your limits, do it somewhere you can get help easily.
* When you're in a remote place, pack emergency supplies
* Learn basic accident first aid - stop bleeding, splint limbs, treat shock, burns and head injuries...

I don't know... I like training alone, traveling light. I change my plans depending on conditions, how I feel... sigh...

Post by: turtlekarma on September 28, 2010, 02:25:38 AM
national jam, sounds good....the most important thing is picking a good date...

on another note idk if anyone has ever tried, but I've been curious about this for a while and I decided on trying to find out what the city and county of honolulu's park and recreations thinks about parkour on city and county park property.  I basically asked on what grounds have I been kicked out of city and county parks for, since there are no rules specifically against parkour, free running, free walking, or any other word that describes what we do.  I'm only asking out of curiosity, I'll post the results of my inquire when they write back.

Congrats on level 2 ADAPT cert, Ozzi!

Ryan - Whose opinion did you ask for at Parks & Rec? You'd probably get different answers at every level of administration.

Leg update: Running, jumping [small kine strides, vaults] are ok. Did some deep squats/qm on Sunday, and can feel it in my knees. There's an area where I have nerve damage, and can't feel touch. Yet.

Post by: turtlekarma on October 01, 2010, 03:30:14 AM
tried different offices I thought might be willing to make a statement...at least i know they've looked at the email since I get a receipt.  I think when I find time I'll just call them. 

Um and for national jam, In regards to picking an appropriate date.  I know most people from mainland or other areas probably wont be able to make it during October or February (due mostly to school), but at least from what I've seen that's when round trip tickets are cheapest cause it's not during peak traveling seasons...so it would be likely people could find round trip tickets from $300-$450 if they shop at the right time.  I know lots of the PK/FR demographic is in school and this might make it inconvenient, but how many college or highschool students do you think could afford to come down during their breaks when travel costs are at their peaks anyway?  That's why I think it would make more sense to pick a time that working practitioners could schedule into where it would be also cheapest to come down here. 

Basically I'm saying we should schedule a national jam whenever ticket prices are cheapest, and not during winter, summer, or spring break...simply because I think most people who could afford to make it down here probably arent in school and could come down whenever they could request off, which I'm hoping is when travel costs are low.  I think travel costs are a big enough barrier for us to think about pandering to those who can afford to come down, and not the ones who wish they could come down...I don't want to sound mean or anything, but that's the reality I see based on the kind of people who came last year.

Hey lets meet before the jam for some brain storming.
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on October 21, 2010, 01:37:32 PM
I jotted down some notes... I didn't realize it was going to be > hour. There should have been a warning label!
Because I've pretty much trained alone, I haven't picked up this stuff in this structured of a way. It's been more the trial and fail method. I spent too much time watching this video, but at least it's got me thinking. These are just my notes. They may not be the most important things - I may have missed some key points.

Parkour plus strength and flexibility training... "be strong to be useful"...

Training should be skill and power biased. Focus on building technical skills. % of max potential = train to develop power, speed, and strength. Strength transfers well, endurance doesn't.

Effectiveness = safety [physical motor skills + recognizing/reducing risk] + fluidity [capacity to maintain momentum] + speed [understanding techniques + applying force] + mental strength [overcoming fear + psych pressures].

Physical development = strength [novice improve 1 workout to next... intermediate hit plateaus only hit PRs 1/wk, 1/mo... advanced may only hit PRs a couple times per year]

Beginner focus on movements - fast adaption - strength
  Correcting for raised heel shoes and too much sitting
  QM + vaulting, running for speed [stride, cut & dodge, approaches & recoveries after vaults], jumping, climbing [swinging, hanging, underbars]
  Understand how to progress - break down moves into manageable chunks.
    Kong, dash, climb-up, landing progressions [examples given 27:30 - 48:30]

Intermediate focus on flow - conditioning + speed
  Live training - training under pressure, adaptability when you are reacting as it comes at you. Time trials, races, adaptive [don't know what's coming], player interaction [danger increases = monkey tag [ground level] -> flat ground tag -> duck duck goose tag, etc.]

Power training = quality + small reps [ie 10-15 wall passes = as soon as it decreases, stop. ie kong for distance, tictac for height/ distance, standing broad jump] Volume + hard parkour will destroy gains
Speed training = over a course. 5 to 30 second route. "Physically easy". Rest fully.
Stamina training = ie 5-10 reps of a 30 second route. No rest. [or only partial recovery to start] 3-15 minutes. No super-long stuff it will crush you. Endurance training will interfere with power/ speed training.

Advanced focus on mental strength?
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Ozzi on October 21, 2010, 03:04:21 PM
I like it...
 I think advance is all of the above, plus yes, mental training, also just finding your won style, flow, way of moving and then, moving to other areas of training. Rick climbing, trail running, other things that will enhance or complement. Not a must, just my opinion, if you want to be advance get the strong grip of a rock climber, the precision running of a trail runner, etc.

What video was it G?
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on October 21, 2010, 04:00:28 PM
It's that Rafe Kelley vid. He didn't really go into advanced, because he didn't feel he was at that level. It was more about training beginning and intermediate traceurs.

He found beginners' weakest area was climbing. In the obstacle runs, that was the area of most fails.
There was another point about using parkour to train for parkour - don't need plyometrics, because it's basically same.

--- --- ---
I'm back at beginner level. 3 months is too much time to lose, despite trying to be active in other ways.
Which reminds me - has anyone been in touch with Derek? How's he healing up?


Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Ozzi on October 21, 2010, 05:38:35 PM
I think hes been diving, seen some of his pic and videos. Havent heard from him in a while.

Agree, climbing is tricky.. after letting my shoulder heal for over a month, my climb ups are slow. Did a few muscle ups today and felt good, so might be ready for climbs up a full power. I was a bit hindered last time.

How you been G?

I sent Derek a short note on FB.

I can sprint again. I caught flu from boss, tho, so no good workouts the past week.
I'm enjoying beginner vaults, taking Razor kick scooter to work [1 mile], foot placement/ beginner stride stuff.

Video project at work is going - but I realized most of my earlier footage was worthless, and had to go shoot it again. I need to try to finish Monday. I'm WAAAAAAY behind schedule. I'd better get back to it.

yeah, didn't watch the whole vid myself...just thought it was a thought provoking way to look at training for self and others...glad you watched it though gregg, your dissemination was very close to my own.  Hope your healing is going well.  Derek is in WA in some art school for photography...he was planning a cross country hike journey or whatever before he got hurt, I think it might be still down the road, but more really down the road.  He visited oahu a month ago or so. 

 Ozzi, I'll come down to hawaii academy tom to talk with you about the jam this sunday.

I'm keeping it safe, Frosty. No worries. My free time is going to be mostly afternoons, which isn't best for snorkeling.

Got this from Derek:

Hey,
Thanks for checking up on me.
I moved to Seattle 2 months ago for photography school. Injury wise I am struggling to run more then two miles without my knee locking up. Been to the gym a couple times. But I don't trust the knee enough yet. I did throw a double back off the rod floor into a softer mat last Thursday. So I am progressing.

cool vid from rafe kelley...some interesting stuff, a bit long winded, but interesting
http://vimeo.com/15670755 (http://vimeo.com/15670755)

Great video. 

Gregg nailed it in the first line of his analysis...but to take it further, WHAT do you do to supplement Parkour for the beginner to novice level? 

About minute 49 he mentions that CF or plyometrics won't add that much to a pk workout but what will? Is he saying that on top of vaulting and drilling pk elements you have to do strength, flexibility and endurance training? Well this is pretty much a structured workout (Ozzi class). I mean, you need the strength and flexibility training to just do the moves. Or is he saying that ON TOP OF a typical pk workout you need to do ADDITIONAL strength and flexibility training?

People make the mistake to nonly do PK type workouts for PK, well, other things will help regardless plus it just changes the rhythim the body is following which is always good. Im all pro CF.
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on October 24, 2010, 12:29:58 AM
I think Rafe meant that most people need additional strength and flexibility. He likes PK for the running/ jumping, but felt that plyometrics is too similar to PK. They both use about the same amount of force to move the same load.

Because strength carries over between activities well, he encourages strength building stuff. Endurance doesn't transfer well - being able to swim distance doesn't help your running that much. At least that's what he was saying.

He was also saying something about high-skill moves like the planche progression, which take a lot more strength, balance, etc. than push-ups... but once you get the planche, you'll be able to pound out push-ups easy. Also, being able to lift a heavier weight will make it easier to lift lighter weights. Having sprint speed is more valuable than running endurance, etc.

CF is good. I like mixing everything up to keep from getting bored. That's why I like PK + MN. My wife had me try Zumba, and I could tell there are some muscles I don't use much in PK. I hope to get some surfing in next week... it's been too long.

Sorry for being an ignorant haole, but what is the best time for snorkeling?

Glad to hear Derek is getting better!

Usually morning, when the wind is calm and water is less choppy. Also, if it's a good day for surfing, it's a bad day for snorkeling - big waves stir up sand, and create surges - not fun if you're trying to look at a sea urchin close up, or swim thru coral channels.

It was buried at the end of the other Halloween contest. I was like "I don't have 300 people willing to spam APK. Ooh... what's this? Carve a pumpkin, get $50 coupon?" So I'm getting a pair of the black combat pants and one of the on-sale long sleeve t-shirts. I really wanted 2 pairs of the on-sale $25 cargo pants but they only have small left.

For people who want to try to write a novel, it's NaNoWriMo. National Novel Writing Month. The goal is write a 50,000 word novel by midnight, Nov 30. Don't worry about logical plot. Don't worry about spelling or format. Just blaze away. I've tried several years, and finished twice. It's about QUANTITY, not QUALITY. Check it at www.nanowrimo.org

Did some strength training last night. Pretty sad [compared to where I was 2 years ago]. Let's see how fast I can get back to that peak. I haven't even dared do the 12 MN tests again.

Did you vote today?

Don't worry, I'm horribly out of shape, so you will look like a 28 year old gymnast compare to me when I get there!

(Not that it's a competition, of course, but it should make you feel better!)

50,000 words?  that's a bit scary....i guess if spelling and logic aren't important... does that mean you can make up your own words...english shorthand even???  pretty cool concept though.  I've always toyed with idea of writing a novel.  I wonder if you have enough words on the forums alone gregg? 
Title: Re: Talk Story - Pidgen, Gibberish, Ozzish you name it, Brah!!
Post by: Gregg HIPK on November 05, 2010, 10:36:00 AM
50,000 words is only 1667 a day. It's time consuming, but not out of the realm of possibility. I probably have enough words just in the "Going Natural" forum, but that's not the point...

You can make up your own words. A couple years ago I took Hawaiian words and chose the OTHER set of consonants... instead of K, L and P I used T, R and B - like some of the old maps, before the spelling had been settled. It slowed me down a little, but by the time it mattered, I wasn't using any new words. So kapu -> tabu, etc.

I'm a little ahead of pace right now. I've never been ahead - one year I didn't even start until Nov 12, and had to write like a maniac.

anyone ever try singing while they train?  I was training at my local park, with my headphones in and kinda just felt like doing it.  I found it self indulging, exhausting, and a great source of information. 

I learned some things about the pacing of my breathing that I hadn't noticed before...especially on moves that required me to lift my knees into my chest, or when I need quick successive explosive movement.  I encourage my fellow practitioners to give it a go.  The great thing is that we don't have to worry about looking weird singing while exercising, because we already stick out doing PK...how much could it hurt to sing while we do it?  I mean, I can't be the only one who has been training on my own and spontaneously broke out into dance while training cause the song that was playing on my ipod made me feel like dancing...why not take it a step further?  Why not indulge the flow we feel from the music that inspires us while training?  Feel like I'm rambling....

summary...sing while training, it fun.

sing + train will give you more respect for some of the dance music singers...
It takes a lot of work to do both well.

Zetaman.tv, episode 15 had "Blue Blaze". Right off I could tell he does some pk training.

I don't think I can sing that well, but maybe that would be a cool video to make.  Maybe like three or more guys training "a cappella."  Carrying a simple tune like this guy didhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlW5c4tInvY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlW5c4tInvY).  Lay down the back ground harmony doing simple things like sound bytes of rolls, tick tacks, cats.... basically whatever simple sounds we make doing Pk (tweak sound a bit with synthesizer and layering software).  I think quick runs while singing a line would be best we could get before winding ourselves. 

Anyone want in?

Balance walks and other high skill low power moves would be ideal for singing longer lines.
Sony's ACID program - not sure what features the demo version will give you. It allows loop and linear recording, etc. Can be fun.

yeah, song choice is very important.  I was actually thinking of an instrumental version of a song and we re-do it with just our voices.  Actually since putting it together would be all digital, you could help me with this too gregg.  I'm going to go get some simple sound bites of me running and what not, and play around with it.  I'll post it up soon.

Singing is all breathing and muscle control and forces total present awareness...great idea

Crazy idea, but I could bring my guitar to a training session and we could have kanikapila conditioning! Live music makes sense to me cause you want to adjust the tempo to match the rhythm of your drill, right? I have a djembe as well

This is maybe taking it too far but i can also arrange harmonies to help people know what parts to sing. Maybe its a dumb idea.

This is a nice and simple idea.

But I don't think song choice matters. Could be Brittany spears or anything with easy lyrics and other people are going "bap bah" or "do do" for  rhythm. Military march songs would serve the same purpose...

No we haven't really met. I think you were at the movement seminar with the camera but left early? I am in my 30's, was there with a buddy my age. A couple of out of shape architects.

I texted you this morning about kaimuki. I was on the mainland when you were going last time

I tried out silk screen t-shirt printing for fun the other week and here's a design I came up with...was tons of fun...probably cost me about $3 to make total.  you can either use contact paper (1 time usage) or make a silk screen design outling it in mod podge (multiple uses).

Basically you need

1. embroidering hoop ($1)
2. some kind of mesh material that paint can go through (I used a plastic screening thing I had left over from fixing a screen door)
3. Mod Podge (I already had)
4. paint (supposed to use fabric paint, but that's expensive, acrilic worked fine for me)
5. cheap cotton shirts (you can get a 6 pack of shirts from walmart for $10)
6. (optional) contact paper instead of embroidering hoop, mod podge, and mesh material

Using contact paper
a. cut a design out of the contact paper using a razor blade
b. stick it straight onto the shirt
c. fill in design with paint & let dry
d. cover design with paper and iron over for 3-5 minutes
e. enjoy

Using screening technique
a. pull mesh material tight across embroidering hoop
b. trace desired design onto mesh material in hoop
c. paint mod podge around material and let dry (takes long time)
d. paint in the design with paint and let dry
e. cover design with paper and iron over for 3-5 minutes
f.  enjoy
