Title: February Jam
Post by: Ozzi on January 28, 2010, 12:21:39 AM
Should we start planning for this?

The dates are the 14th and the 28th

We have done a lot of natural lately so lets pick some urban.
Title: Re: February Jam
Post by: Stacie on January 28, 2010, 09:41:21 AM
The dates work for me. ^.^ And I'm down for any place that has lots of cool toys to play with.  ;D

Feb 14 is Valentines Day...  ;)
Title: Re: February Jam
Post by: Ozzi on January 28, 2010, 01:53:16 PM
Valentines day jam, that means we should give some love, so maybe pick a place we can clean.
Title: Re: February Jam
Post by: Stacie on January 28, 2010, 06:56:23 PM
Good idea. All the places I can think of to clean are the natural areas, so you guys tell me where. I'll bring a box of trash bags and sanitizing wipes for our hands.

I'm totally down for a clean up jam =D... And when you say Urban jam there are two places that come to mind, Aiea and Kaneohe.

sorry nos..in keeping with tradition they are always on sundays unless its a special event like a seminar...sundays are just usually days that most of us can get off work or arent in school.  fridays might work for people in public highschools...but everyone else might have a job weekdays or go to college...know what I mean?

And as far as jam goes, me an JC have been wanting to go here for a while
http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,18645.0.html (http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,18645.0.html)

http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,19759.0.html

we got kicked out last time we were there...it's open sundays and there will be security guards.  They were really nice about kicking us out though...  But yeah, probably not a good spot for a jam.  Good suggestion though.  Anything out your side Stacie?  you always have to drive into town...I think it's fair that we do stuff outside of town every once in a while.

Hey, I'm new here, to this site, and I've been watching people parkour and freerun online, and I've decided that I want to try to learn how. I'm in ok shape, according to the 'warm up' on here, my weakspot are mainly pull ups. I've talked to a few guys at work, and we were thinking of joining you for the jam on the 28th... it would be our first try at it. How intense are the jams you guys do? Is it like we'd want to be in extremely good shape? Or could we come and keep up ok?

Um so basically, I'm just saying hi, and that me and two of my buddies might show up... so long as we wouldn't be a burden as complete nubs practically. Uh, so yea...

Howzit! Welcome to HIpk. The better shape you're in, the easier everything's going to be.
Ozzi used to do hard-core conditioning at jams. I'll let an Oahu traceur answer your other questions ;D

like gregg said, welcome!!!  we love having new people come out to jams.  Ozzi (HIPK Founder) likes to do conditioning, but it's not that bad...you probably will be sore next day though if you not used to doing parkour.  For the most part jams is just a bunch of us meeting up to play, there's no set kind of rules we follow...it's just like hey we're doing this stuff over here, but if you want to go off and explore that's fine, just as long as you're respectful of place we're jaming in.  right now we're still discussing where we wanna hold this next jam... but it will be the 28th meet up time 11am (where ever we choose).

Stacie: yeah sundays the library is open so there will be security there who will kick us out...see ya tonight

I think Makiki is a good spot...

Makiki park looked good to me.... plus the directions are already posted :) thanks ryan

And I dunno sala... I just wanted to make sure. I read somewhere that new people were discouraged from it a little bit, but maybe that's mainland groups. You walked from aiea? Geez... if you need a ride, I'm willing to give one, aiea is close enough to salt lake. I'll be there unless something drastic happens.

LOL! That's so weird that people would do that. But I'm so used to training with people who enjoy the flavor of life as fully as they can, which includes teaching and learning from new people. I'm a total noob and klutz and I still somehow fit in. You'll be more than welcome in this group. ;)

Then she should totally come and meet us. ^.^ If it's going to keep you training with us, by all means, BRING HER!!! Heck, she can even train with us if she wants. Let her get to know us old folk and feel more comfortable about us. ;)  She's more than welcome.

I suggest meet up by the swing set in the middle of the park, it's easily visible from every where...give me a call if you get lost.
(808-754-4800)

Jiyoung: I was tired already that day, normally I bet I could keep up...well if I'm not feeling lazy.  lookin forward to meeting your mom, I bet you she will like me cause I'm just so lovable, not some random scary college guy  :P
Title: Re: February Jam
Post by: Sala on February 22, 2010, 11:30:28 PM
Updated post. Including time and meet up spot.



Honestly, you should bring your mom. If it will make things easier, introduce her to everyone let her know who exactly your training with. I bet that would help tremendously. I did the same thing bout 2 years back  xD
Title: Re: February Jam

Post by: VegamanKS3 on February 23, 2010, 12:45:51 PM
Your mom might be coming? Freerunning mom for the win!! Oh, and if any one needs a ride there let me know ahead of time, like today and/ or tommorow. I need to0 make sure of who I'm bringing to the jam.
Title: Re: February Jam
Post by: turtlekarma on February 23, 2010, 04:02:26 PM
haha icic but lol ryan she already saw u remember? and that time she thought u was some creep-o haha well im pretty sure if u introduce urself she would be ok with it....but dont tell her that we met after the waikiki time....trust me she will like kill you haha  xD

lol im still not sure if she was serious about comming but if she does i know for a fact that she will not join in haha  she's 40 though she dont look like it

.....oh really? now you believe me, of course when I told you I should meet your parents it was a dumb idea.  Now its a good thing?  huh, now I'm gonna go pout in a corner for a couple hours and yell at my dog cause he's not as cool as roxy...yet  :'( 

Anyway...11am makiki be there.  General disclaimer!!! I'm bringing camera/note pad to observe, just shoo me away if I start kreeping you out.  I might ask to talk to some of you as well.

That's what moms are for... and don't observe me... I don't know how to do anything.

that's fine I'm not interested in what you can do anyway...more like what draws you to pk, your background in movement, how you found HIPK, your perception of pk community, perception of pk itself.  If you would like me to explain more I'd be more then willing to at the jam.
