Location: Baltimore - Otaku Parkour Jam!
Duration: 8 hours
With Johnny Le, Rob, Zach, Matt, Michael, Eugene, Chris... at least 30 people in all!
This was fantastic. I learned a lot just by spectating. We trained in a few places that had no obstacles I could handle-- or so I thought. I ended up finding out that I could either do more than I thought or that with a little more "Parkour Eye" I could find a way to use an obstacle. I had a lot of opportunities to work flow today as well, there were just so many good obstacles.
I won't bother listing everything I did. In eight hours I pretty much tried everything I know-- vaults of every kind... I learned how to do a Crane Vault for the first time. Underbars, top ups, and a lot of rolls. I did rolls on concrete for the first time ever and found I can do them with no pain at all.
This really was an excellent experience and opportunity to see the range of the discipline. And really, the reputation of traceurs as good and helpful people was upheld: everyone was willing to help, to show me how, to give me tips, to cheer my fledgling skills. Superb.
