Parkour And Freerunning / question about callouses
« on: June 20, 2007, 07:23:00 AM »
I have fairly tough callouses at the base of my fingers but for some reason when I put much pressure on them they slightly hurt. for example if I lighty pinch them it is a very mild stinging sensation. the pain is also greatly increased when my hands are wet. can anyone explain why this is?

Parkour And Freerunning / funny coincidence
« on: June 04, 2007, 07:24:11 AM »
I have a feeling that there will never be purpose built free running shoes if only for the reason that if there was a sign in a store that said freerunning shoes people would probably think that they were running shoes that didn't cost anything. I don't mean I seriously think that there won't be purpose built freerunning shoes, I just thought this was a funny situation.

Consumer Whores / A Pair of shoes I was looking at
« on: May 25, 2007, 08:32:03 PM »
I was looking for some cheap shoes with a single peice of rubber for a sole. my first pair of parkour shoes were asics so I like them. I thought these looked decent for the money, any criticisms?

Parkour And Freerunning / About TIME
« on: April 06, 2007, 06:14:45 PM »
I assume everyone here read the TIME article on the frontpage, while the second half of the article, for the most part, was positive  the beginning is what the most people read about. I think that we should write letters to the editor expressing our displeasure at the article. at least then we have the chance to defend ourselves. you can send letters to the editor by emailing to letters@time.com and I would suggest putting something in the subject line about how much you didn't like the article so that even if the editor doesn't read a single email at least he/she will know that many people were displeased by the article.

Parkour And Freerunning / A Theory of mine
« on: March 02, 2007, 10:06:25 AM »
first I have to give some background, my first love was videogames, my second computers, and my third is parkour. not to say I care more for videogames and computers than parkour, PK is the one thing I have found that I never get bored with. Me and my fellow Athens traceurs were postulating about the origin of our love for parkour. Me and my cousin were/are both Metroid fanatics, for anyone who doesn't know of Metroid it is a video game where the main character is a woman in a suit of futuristic armor, not unlike Halo's armor, but much more useful and cool. this suit of armor, along with upgrades, allows our protagonist, Samus, to perform incredible feats of acrobatics and agility. Me and my cousin, who is one of my PK compatriots, used to come home after school every day and play this game for hours on end. I also really like the mario series, everyone knows of his acrobatic feats. I was thinking that my love for these games, which share many similar motives of parkour might have influenced my love for being able to access any place that I can see, no matter what the obstacle. I was wondering if any of you might share a love for video games previous to your discovery of Parkour and if you thing that it might have influenced your love of parkour.

Consumer Whores / 5.10 Savant
« on: November 16, 2006, 08:53:33 AM »
Has anyone tried out the 5.10 savant? it is supposedly a "freerunning shoe" and in the advertisement on their website it mentions tic-tacs and cat grabs. I would link to the product but the url for 5.10's site is always five-ten.com I can't imagine they are fantastic for parkour or I would have heard of them.
