Guys! it's been so long.

I feel like the funny and sh*t comments are half the reason I watch youtube videos.  I mean, that's why they initiated the "thumbs" as a service....

Training Journals / JOMR Training Log
« on: January 29, 2010, 09:35:42 AM »
Hmmm...haven't been on the internet in a h-wile.
I usually keep all these notes and such written on paper...but I suppose I can start putting them online for a little intellectual contribution. I mean it is a forum right?

I'm going to leave this as an open structure...more like a narrative with notes, similar to my book training log.  Most posts will be a roundup of things I have done on given day and any notes for improvement of thoughts I might have.


So to start things off:

Tricking / Re: How Do I get Higher Height on those Front tucks...
« on: April 26, 2009, 02:50:17 PM »
That's just mind over matter. Just because you do all those things when you 'imagine' an object doesn't negate the mechanics involved.  Worrying about your arms and 'stuff' all has to do with blocking and tucking.

If he's landing on his butt, it has nothing to do with trajectory. He could shoot out 10 feet of stay in place, his trajectory is determined from the point of takeoff. The rotary force however is what gets him tucked/untucked. If you only jumped 6 inches off the ground, and tucked super hard, you would probably still make it all around.

Reducing the radius length makes an object spin faster. In effect, tuck harder, spin faster.
Apply gratuitously so blocking, and youll have a delicious front flip

Sounds like you mightnot be tucking hard enough.

also, remember, dont look at the ground when you takeoff!

Money is not an issue?? ???

Okay, i'll be the instigator here.

Although I respect the enthusiasm, there seem to be some very large hiccups in this idea?

I flipped through the other thread again, and this was one of the most prominent things i found:

at this point the gym could become whatever we want... i personally have NO business experience, i'm only 19. but the guy who approched me knows people all over long island with gyms, and he has some eager investors... but he doesn't know much about parkour. so most of the design of the place is going to be on my shoulders.

and as far as classes, i really would like to talk to m2 about getting certified, if im going to teach parkour, i want to teach it right.


So you don't know anything about business.
Does your "guy" know anything about business?
Where are you guys getting this money to buy real estate, and then fully furnish it? A bank loan? Do you have a business plan? Startup expenses; Estimated income; loan maturation; marketing plan; insurance expenses; etc. etc. etc.

What qualifications does this guy or (no offense), you have to open a parkour gym? Yes, you might have a few years(if that) of practice, but apparently your "partner" has none.
So you have no parkour qualifications(of which under PAWA and worldwide discussions, im guessing you nor many people here are certainly not qualified or ready for), no gymnastics certifications, no martial arts certifications, nor any type of physical coaching certs.

Gymnastic padding (especially a constructed plyo floor) are incredibly expensive.



This entire thing sounds incredibly sketchy to me.
