Parkour And Freerunning / Anti-Competition Question
« on: May 25, 2009, 12:52:49 PM »
Yeah i know there's like 100 million other threads but nobody bothers to read through 8 pages anyway so here's my question:

A lot of the argument against competition is that once it becomes mainsteam people will all become giant douchbags.  I've heard numerous arguments stating that people will start to say things like oh I'm better then you etc...  My question is this: It doesn't really happen in any other sport that can be compared to parkour so why would it just start happening with parkour?  If you take a look at almost all more individualized sports all of the athletes have a tremendous amount of respect and humility about winning or losing.  Lets take BMX/skateboarding as an example.  I have been watching the x-games for about a decade now, and I haven't once heard anything like "oh man, I'm so much better than person X."  Now, does that mean it doesn't happen?  No, it doesn't.  However, it is much more prevalent for them to all be extremely good friends and have an enormous amount of respect for each other.  Even beyond skateboarding and BMX you can look at climbing comps where they are all practically best friends.  Even if you look at MMA (although it doesn't seem to happen as often) you will often hear in the pre-fight interviews about how the person they are going against is such a great fighter etc... 

So to recap: If it doesn't happen in most other sports, why would it magically be so prevalent in parkour?  The only thing I can come up with is that you (people who argue that people will say they're better etc...) people must assume that traceurs have a much bigger ego so that this will show up more in parkour comp's.

Parkour And Freerunning / Work on something March
« on: February 10, 2009, 02:39:38 PM »
Here's the idea.  March is coming up, march is generally the beginning of spring etc...  Spring involves new beginnings.  So here's what you're going to do this march.  Think of one thing that you want to improve upon.  For me that one thing is going to be the one arm chinup since I can't do parkour anymore.  Other good examples of things to work on, kongs: work on getting as much distance and power as you can.  Climb ups: This is by far the most under worked thing in parkour.  There's no reason that somebody who has been doing parkour for a few months shouldn't have really good climb ups (unless you don't have a pullup bar or wall). 

Whatever you decide to work on, think about, and ask people what the best way to achieve that goal is.  We'll use the climb up example again, here is what you should be doing to make them better: weighted pullups, weighted dips, muscle ups, actual climb up practice.  Those are all the obvious things.  Now, you will also need to work on the mental aspect of whatever it is that you are going to improve.  So for climb ups you should be watching as many climb up videos and tutorials as you can.  For instance http://www.americanparkour.com/content/view/883/245/             

Another important mental aspect: I want you to visualize what it is that you are going for.  When you're sitting on the bus going to school, imagine in your head what you are going to look like when you're doing a good climbup.  It's been proven that visualizing an action uses most of the same neurons and brain areas as actually doing the action itself. 

Now you know what to do.  Oh yeah and don't forget to take a before and after video of whatever it is that you are training and at the end of march post them up so that we can see the difference.  If you have any questions about how to improve something just ask in the appropriate section, and I guarantee somebody will answer your question shortly.

Parkour And Freerunning / Help me by telling me your stories
« on: November 05, 2008, 09:28:20 PM »
Hey guys I have to write a paper about violating a norm (a norm is pretty much what it sounds like, a normal thing to do).  Just tell me about anytimes that somebody has said something strange or anything like that.  I need interesting ones though, so hopefully not just everyday things like people saying look at those kids etc..

Parkour And Freerunning / Toronto Parkour Gym
« on: September 10, 2008, 10:04:43 AM »
I don't know if this is old news or not but anyway...

Apparently PkDanno and the other Toronto guys are working on a new indoor parkour training facility.  Correct me if I'm wrong but weren't they huge critics of Mark opening up a gym, and not because of who was opening it but because they didn't like the idea.  If I'm not wrong that is pretty lame.

Pics & Vids / Community Videos
« on: June 27, 2008, 05:04:27 PM »
In an effort to increase community contact I propose we start making videos featuring anybody from your community that wants to be in it.  Don't put in only the people who are at a higher skill level, instead put in anything that somebody is proud of that they had to work for to get.  I'm going to post this up in Colorado section as well and I hope the leaders from other communities would be willing to do the same.

Consumer Whores / Water Shoes, thats right
« on: June 18, 2008, 11:02:43 AM »
Everyone wants to train barefoot right, but who wants the bacteria, and the nails?  Well heres a quasi-solution to buying something expensive like those weird toe shoes vibram five fingers.  These shoes are light, have no support at all, and provide such a thin layer of cushioning you don't even notice there is any.  Sure you may look like you should have a pocket protector or something equally nerdy but who cares, because you know your landings will be better than the person making fun of you.
