Hey folks, here's a thread that goes like this:
We all had people ask us, what are you doing all this climbing on stuff for and similar questions, but when we offer to teach them or ask if they want to join the movement, they come up with any and everything (excuses and "logical" reasoning) why they can learn Parkour. Here's the most annoying one that I almost lost respect for this guy, whose a freshman at my college....
Guy: Hey you, aren't you doing that freerunning stuff?
Guy: What is it?
Me: *Explains about parkour and the movement.
Guy: Gee, it sounds fun and all, but my bones are weak, my major is going to kill my spare time, and I have no health insurance.
Me: But we train Safety first all the time, plus I reccomend that you condition first. (Guy was about as skinny as a fashion model.)
Guy: Sorry man, I don't want to want to get hurt becasue I DON'T have health insurance. *walks off
Me: continues to train shaking my head at society.
Post your encounters with skeptics.
