Parkour / A weird problem...
« on: May 04, 2014, 11:43:46 AM »
I need some assistance with this current situation:

Every week I help out with the open gym by teaching some of the novice students whom want to learn Parkour. I have an interesting case at hand. A young lady who wants to get better at vaults crosses her feet at the ankles when she does a monkey vault. I've shown progressions, did mounts, jump tucks,and everything that helps with the monkey/kong vault; yet, she still crosses her feet. I need some extra advice on how to help her out with this problem. It's a weird case to me, because I've heard of people jutting to the side at the last minute, but never crossing the feet. Could it be that she doesn't have enough leg power. Said girl is in the range of 13-16.

Parkour And Freerunning / Low obstacle training?
« on: July 04, 2013, 06:34:56 AM »
Hey forum, Happy 4th of July. I have a question about obstacle training. Is obstacles too low for training because I would see rails about thigh height but members of our group say that that is too low for training on. Do you agree or disagree? ???

Consumer Whores / FannyPack or Hydration Backpack??
« on: April 19, 2013, 01:57:54 PM »
Which one of these offer more space and comfort while training on the go without sitting down my big bulky backpack everytime I would want to train? I've done personal research, just need others feedback.

Parkour And Freerunning / Outlook on this subject?
« on: February 14, 2013, 09:40:21 AM »
I stumbled arcoss this little gem of a video, but while reading comments, I saw a hot topic emerging. Parkour Parks are great for the support of our sport, but at the same time, the space is limited and not free like the wild, ubran enviroment. Thoughts??

Plus, a lot of traceurs like to be on roofs apparently from the comments.

A team member and I were having a debate on whether I was ethier Crane jumping on to a rail or the generic jumping on something. I would jump on the rail with one foot like a crane without the foot support. He says if I don't do the foot support thing then it isn't a crane jump. ??? Help please?

Louisiana / Why wasnt the new orleans fam reminded in this section?
« on: December 10, 2012, 10:31:22 AM »
Hey traceurs in LA, I was wondering why there was not a  reminder about jam in NOLA (new Orleans) last weekend posted in the LA section? I randomly checked the national jams fourms and saw that, but I saw it Sunday night. I was kinda peeved because the last post about it was September. We need to be consistent Louisiana.
