Oh snap, Gameyy. I still have a picture of his that he sent me like 3 years ago of him vaulting a park bench and a letter wishing me luck at the first PKNY ever. How about that for a flashback! :P

This also goes on the same question of:

WHERE IS SOV?!

FOUND HIM:

Dork, just had to go snooping around didn't you. :P

Story is, after making that sampler movie I made a jump, didn't expect it to be quite as high as it was, landed sideways (wasn't able to roll) with a locked elbow and really messed up my shoulder. A bunch of Xrays and MRI's later they found that I had torn or stressed all 4 rotator cuff muscles, nice huh? When it came down to it I ended up being out for at least a year, getting a job to pass the time, and eventually falling in love with the "family" passion. Cars.  :)

I still dabble with PK every now and then, nothing like I used to but it's still in the blood persay. Funny you guys still remember me haha, it's been a few years and I've grown out of not wanting knees when I'm older. :P

Maybe, just maybe, I'll have a relapse sometime in the near future.  ;)

Tricking / Re: Fear of going over backwards

Good heavens, these arguements STILL go on!

Austin, try landing on your head a few times. No, I'm dead serious, you'll realize that landing on your head isn't as bad as it would seem. Obviously, don't do it on concrete, find something soft like sand/leaves/mat to try it on. After that, it's just a matter of holding your tuck long enough to get around.

*Goes outside to light pants on fire and do a hypertwist* :P

Anyone else watch this? If you haven't, RENT IT NOW! The chase scene is one of the best I've ever seen, the man's got serious ups, and "fluidity" doesn't quite say how smooth all of it was. Friggen sick!

Anyone have any idea if the martial art is real or not? I have to watch it again to get the name of it, but I was curious if it was an actual form of martial art. It's very unique to any of the persay "mainstream" stuff you see, especially his movements and attacks.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Teaching
« on: March 10, 2006, 12:25:59 PM »
Most of the time I dont like it when a person says theres a age to start pk. But 9! Well atleast your with her just take it one at a time and keep an eye for her. MAKE SURE, that you go over safety.

It's not that uncommon, my little brother was 8 when he started aswell. Just have to watch and make sure they don't do anything out of their league, but generally they're pretty smart about it.

As for how to teach, basically it comes down to explaining the movements and important safety aspects. After that you can give her tips and such of how to do certain techniques, but you'll find that the person doing the most learning is the teacher. When you break up moves in your mind and apply them in step by step instructions, you'll pull MUCH more out of teaching than just the thrill of someone else learning. ;)

Haha, try telling your parents that you'd like to make a career with the similar actions used in parkour.

That was a lovely 4 week conversation. :P

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Can Parkour really be captured on film?
« on: January 09, 2006, 06:05:38 PM »
Videos are better used to show your skills, after that for entertainment. Other than that they're just fun to make so people do. Don't worry about what's in a vid, just take it for what it is. :)

You know I'd love to see them prosecute someone for this. How can you prove that someone was doing parkour activities. I can see it now.

*3 year old jumps down steps*

*3 year old gets tackled by police and charged with doing parkour*

 ::), in all honesty if this sign popped up around here I'd just have to tell the police man that I was "Falling... with style!" :P

I really didn't like how it bashed Seidojin, that bothered me in a lot of ways. Although I don't agree with the choices they made, I still wouldn't blink at the chance to meet up with them and have a blast.

Everyone really needs to learn how to put politics aside and just do what you think you should be doing. There is no better, there is only what you like to do. End of arguement.

And yes, you got a smite and an edit because of those three little capitilized words at the end of your post.

« on: December 27, 2005, 08:36:24 PM »
Parkourists... WHERE WHERE!?!!?

 :P

Like stated, try looking up other traceurs by state and then working to more local spots. You'd be surprised just how many people are into it that don't frequent websites. :)

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Ever think that parkour is like driving?
« on: December 19, 2005, 02:17:03 PM »
Many people drive for many different reasons.  People drive to relax/enjoy themselves, people drive to get from place to place, people drive to compete, and people drive just to be free.  Its rather incredible how much these two have in common.  To think that both could become an everyday ordinary activity, it’s astounding.  I’m about to speak from personal experience, but I know this is something that has occurred to everybody.  Right after I got my license I realized that I could just go.  No matter what I was doing, I could stop that, get in my car and just go.  That is freedom on a very extreme level, leaving obligations and whatnot behind.  Parkour does the same thing for me.  Those I train with will never say we compete, but we do.  This kind of competition ends not in insults but in the progression of both persons.  To finish up this brief illusion, I must say that both Parkour and Driving make me feel good.  It’s the physical trigger and release of endorphins (on a bio-chemical level) but its also having peace of mind.

Driving is great, quite frankly I've spent far too much time and money lately modding my car. People wonder why I take the long way to work, the highway is full of kids in automatics that I like to screw around with. :P ;D

Im not going to involve myself in this discussion any further. I have spent the good part of 2 days trying to help people in understanding where their logic went wrong. I have explained to these people for hours on end and for some reason they are all refusing to listen, even though 100 other people are telling them the same thing.
Don't you love it when you spend the good part of your day arguing something, and then come back to find out that... hey... no one even looked at what I said. :P

Matt, I really think you need to simmer down a bit. You're new, that's totally understandable. You said it yourself, you're FRPK. Since I've seen you around on any parkour forum, you've always specified that you wanted to do parkour. Now of course you are beginning to get educated so you are still changing your thoughts, but it takes a long time before you get concrete beliefs when it comes to this. I really think you've jumped the gun persay on quite a lot of things. Not to say they're not good things (team, building a park, etc) but I just don't think you're stable enough in what you know/think to be embarking on such huge deals. Personally, I'd like to see you settle down on an understanding of the differences and what parkour is really about, other than just moving and vaulting. The guys who do, if you'll notice, tend to have a much stronger presence and much stronger type of speech pattern when it comes to arguing about parkour. Why? They're confident in what they know, the people who are searching are forced to throw around ideas, most of which aren't concrete, and they just can't make a stable standing in a community when it comes to making points and making them worthwhile. When you can't make ends meet with your arguements, you really are going to have trouble "leading" the way for something much bigger than that. It all starts with the person, you build repore (sp?), and then use that to make a bigger influence within your community, and even so much as a nation or world.

Through my years of being around parkour and being around on forums for parkour, I've come to understand that people find their way by being influenced by others who know more. Everyone remember MOM (If you don't, don't worry). I sure do, babbling off when he first came like a 5 year old child not making any sense and always being extremely annoying. God that kid was dumb. Then parkour.net (or le-parkour.com if you remember that) came about. He moved to there after being banned on UF 540020152 times. :P Go ahead, talk to him now. You'll be thoroughly surprised about just how much he knows and understands, and it's all because he has hung around a bunch of guys who did physical training with David Belle, and guys who have studied the art and it's history quite proficiently. After seeing hundreds of similar examples, I'm really a big stickler on people who are trying to lead the way far too early. It's not a bad thing to want to help and teach, but you need to make good judgement on when you can do it, and do it WELL.
