UT Jams / Salt Lake City Group
« on: March 20, 2012, 05:29:47 PM »
Any traceurs here in this city?  I want to start a group.  I have been doing parkour since 2005, and I'm still going strong.  I'm 22, and want to find some guys (or girls) to train with.

If you are serious about parkour and want to help me get something going, let me know.

Parkour And Freerunning / My Dream
« on: March 14, 2008, 11:15:14 AM »
Last night i had an amazing parkour dream.  The area I was in had everything I could ever want to train.  It had tons of bars, interesting concrete structures, walls, slopes, gaps, high things, low things, everything!

So at first I was training a bunch of new traceurs there, and then the dream shifted a little and David Belle actually started training me.  I specifically remember asking him to repeat a move a couple times so I could analyze it closer.  I don't rmember what move it was though.

So the question is, did my dream help me at all?  Yes!  It not only instilled a new yearning for training and to become better, but it also taught me different ways I can teach people, and gave me a desire to search out someone who is better then me so I can learn from them.

Parkour really is an amazing discipline.

Parkour And Freerunning / A True traceur
« on: February 23, 2008, 08:16:55 AM »
In my eyes:

A true traceur is one who seeks perfection in both the physical and mental aspects of survival.  On the physical side, a true traceur must tone his muscles and learn to move through his environment with a seemingly effortless grace.  A traceur seeks for flow, and for a perfect understanding of their own bodies; always knowing their limits and striving to increase their ability.  A true traceur seeks flexibility, dexterity, and self-awareness that can only be achieved through intensive and sometimes brutal training.

On the mental side, a true traceur must be keen and alert at all times.  A traceur cannot be tied down by such mental barriers as preconceived notions or ideas.  A true traceur recognizes that the greatest obstacle to overcome is fear.  A traceur must have focus at all times, and must achieve a level of mental freedom that will increase that of physical freedom, not inhibit it.  A true traceur recognizes that such things as pride and glory seeking are inefficient, and therefore useless, and that such things should be avoided.  He recognizes the importance of a free mind, and cannot be tied down by habits or addictions, for ultimately parkour is freedom.

A true traceur is never content with current circumstances, and yearns for improvement and growth in many aspects of life.  He looks at his environment as a means to improve.  He does not look at an obstacle and see the problem, but only the solution.  He applies the physical lessons that he learns from parkour to his life, and passes all obstacles whether physical, or mental.  A true traceur seeks to be helpful to those around him, and is courteous and respectful of other people‚Äôs freedoms, especially those of non-traceurs.  He reaches to height of zeal and is only useful when teaching another traceur from his own experiences.  He never misses a chance to help someone overcome their own obstacles.

Last but not least, a true traceur is never reckless, random, or dangerous, but always is calm, cool, determined, focused, acute to thinking and detail, and learns to weigh every risk and obstacle against his own abilities.  A true traceur is safe in his actions, even when the environment he trains in is very dangerous, and he knows and plans for the risks that will face him.  A true traceur seeks the calm center of focus and holds that within him even when performing seemingly extreme movements.

Training Journals / Crosion_5's Training Log
« on: February 22, 2008, 11:20:30 PM »
Current Crux's
-Long Precisions
-Flexibility
-"The Perfect Roll"
-Underbar's
-General Flow
-Fear of Watching Pedestrians (to a certain extent)
-Endurance
-Ambidexterity
-Dash Vault Perfection

Solutions
-Long Precisions: Practice . . . can't say much more then that.
-Flexibility: Stretch way more.  I need to research some other techniques to help.
-Perfect Roll:  My roll's are good, but I still get a little pain on concrete, especially when fatigued.  Practice basic movements and slow motion rolling.
-Underbar's: Demon's Underduct (thanks Demon ;))
-Flow: Practice, and planned routes, instead of individual movements.
-Peds Watching me: Get over it
-Endurance: train train train!!!
-Ambidexterity: practice moves first one way, and then the other (such as palm-spins)
-Dash Vault Perfection: I still need to work on this.  I never trained this much because I never thought it useful enough to catch my interest, but nevertheless . . . train!

*Please don't post her unless you have some reall good tips for me.  I don't want to have to work witha bunch of idle chit chat.  Thanks!

CO Jams / Friday Springs Training
« on: February 22, 2008, 11:32:26 AM »
Since one a week training really isn't enough for me, I'm planning on heading out fridays to whereever I want.  I won't be starting this for a couple weeks though.

Anyone who wants to Jam with me, feel free!  Training alone is not as fun.

I'll probably be hitting up a lot of spots on Cascade and the surounding areas Downtown, and once and a while I might head up north to Dream, or Tiffany Square (if I do that I'd want only a couple guys to lessen the chance of getting kicked out).

CO Jams / New Colorado Springs Schedule
« on: February 08, 2008, 12:38:12 PM »
Post what days are good for you here so we can come up with a new weekly training schedule.

I'm free:
Monday- before 6:00pm
Tuesday- before 6:30pm
Wednesday- before 6:30pm
Thursday- All Day!
Friday- All Day!
Saturday- All Day!

Not Free: Sunday's

So I thought it sounded good to do 2 times a week.  That way if someone can't make it to 1, they can make it to the other.  I would prefer day time on friday, and maybe monday or tuesday after people get out of school.

Colorado / Proper Parkour Conditioning
« on: December 08, 2007, 03:34:54 PM »
I thought it might be wise for us all to compile our knowledge of what we view as proper parkour conditioning.  I'm sure there are many traceur's, new and experienced, that would like to find new and improved ways to condition themselves.  So what are the best ways to improve our Endurance training, our Flexibility, or anything else that can keep our bodies keen?

I thought of this today as I have been working for a while trying to think up good stretches so that I can become more flexible and increase my overall dexterity.  I thought, if Parkour is the art of Movement, as a traceur, I should be able to move my body in whatever way I need.

Colorado / Colorado Springs Parkour
« on: November 17, 2007, 10:32:51 PM »
Hey, I have been practicing parkour for a few years now but have not made an effort to try and reach out to the parkour community here in Colorado Springs.

I see a lot of activity and jams happening up in Denver and in Boulder, and that is awesome . . . though it would be a little more awesome if I lived up there.  So, anyone know of any events or anything going on here in the Springs?  If not, we should plan some.  I'm sure we can all pull our knowledge together of some hot spots.  I know of a few.
