You're right, I haven't trained with anyone from that method, however the name associated with something is strictly semantics, and if it were true to name, I see it as being anything used naturally(hunter/gatherer), which is how I (mis)understood it.
I used think PK was srs bizness, but I figured it took the fun in training away after I tried to define something that is different to everyone. Personally, I use Parkour as an outlet that I can combine fun, a good workout, and a method for critical thinking of space. Others may use it as a technique to test their physical aptitude or seek peer approval, but not for me. It's all in what you want to get out of it. If you want to work hard on whatever day we meet, fine...I'm no stranger to extremely vigorous workouts (I used to have an Olympic personal trainer who had worked with greats such as Johnny Mosley), but really I can get a good workout if I do PK in itself.
I don't want to scare casual traceurs and free runners away that just want to get started, or don't have the same capabilities as others. Bring who you want with whatever mentality you want, but we can decide on a daily basis how hard we want to train, and how. Seeing as it is a daily thing, there is no need to go balls to the walls, but I'd rather do my own training on the side and bring it to the table with a group that wants to go out and have fun. Technical training is where I've almost completely developed my agility, leaving strength behind as a by-product of free running. But that's what makes it Parkour to me, I'll leave it up to you guys to pick why you want to choose this discipline. I hope I can come get my ass beat with your sesh, Animus. But until then, I'll see everyone in the daily post I'm about to begin. If in the event, anyone would like to work out, I would suggest attending an Animus event and then taking that to the daily meet or home to train on your own.
Please, if you see the daily post, check around noon and either make the post yourself if its not there, or add your location request so we can all agree on a spot.
