PKAB 2015

Earlier this summer I got the opportunity to go out to Calgary, Alberta to teach a workshop and judge the freestyle component of the competition they were hosting at their annual national jam, PKAB.

Winter training: a guide to cold-weather parkour training

It’s getting to be that time of year again, the time of year where most traceurs go into hibernation due to the winter months. The lucky traceurs who live in California, Texas, Florida, or other relatively warm areas don’t have to worry about cold temperatures, or snow, inhibiting their training. Unfortunately, I am not one of those lucky traceurs. Here in Canada, I’ve had to deal with the cold since I’ve started training. During that time, I’ve heard a variety of…
