Finally!
« on: October 11, 2008, 07:55:12 AM »
Ok, so the people that have viewed my previous threads have known that I was working on my kong, well today was a breakthrough day!

I was always scared of the picnic tables kong, but today I had gotten over that fear and konged my first picnic table. I know this might not sound like a big deal to a lot of people, but to me this is door-opening. I am very happy that i have this new technique in my arsenal.

I know I have a lot of kong progression to do, but now that the length fear is past me I think it will come naturally! As always, comments and criticism are graciously accepted! Thanks!

Nice progress!  Just remember: "a good traceur practices until he gets it right; a superb traceur practices until he can't get it wrong."

Very good.  Now start to work on landing on one foot so you can continue running after you land.  Also, I would move to higher objects.  You may actually find them to be easier.  Picknick tables are often very low.
