Pics & Vids / Video of jam in Lafayette, LA
« on: January 24, 2011, 06:20:18 AM »

Some parts are kind of goofy but we had a blast, finally got some of the different groups in southwest Louisiana together for a jam.  Only parkour can turn strangers into friends in just a few short hours.

Movement / Need Sideflip help please-video included
« on: November 15, 2009, 06:18:23 PM »
Any suggestions to help my side flip?  This video was my first day of practice.  We started by rolling over a chest high object, then tried it without anything and over something small.  Please help, it doesn't feel right to me.

Edit: I took the video down, thanks!

Pics & Vids / New video - Acadiana Parkour 2009

Hello everyone.  We finally finished our first video for Acadiana Parkour.  Features myself (in the white shirt and black APK pants) and my brother-in-law Tobey(the one with the front flips).  Shot entirely in Lafayette, Louisiana and entirely on an iPhone 3GS.

Please enjoy, we had a lot of fun making it.  As always feedback is very welcome.

From the book, "The Way of the Bow" by Paulo Coelho. I found this chapter to be particularly PK related and inspiring, just substitute parkour for the archery and traceur for the archer:

    A small gesture betrays us, so we must polish everything, think about
details, learn the technique in such a way that it becomes intuitive. Intuition
has nothing to do with routine, but with a state of mind that is beyond
   So, after much practising, we no longer think about the necessary movements, they become part of our own existence. But for this to happen, you must practise and repeat.
   And if that isn't enough, you must repeat and practise.
   Look at the skilled hammersmith working steel. To the untrained eye, he is merely repeating the same hammer blows.
   But anyone who knows the way of the bow, knows that each time he lifts the hammer and brings it down, the intensity of the blow is different. The hand repeats the same gesture, but as it approaches the metal, it
understands that it must touch it with more or less force. So it is with repetition, although it may appear to be the same thing, it
is always different.
   Look at the windmill. To someone who glances at its sails only once, they seem to be moving at the same speed, repeating the same
   But those familiar with windmills know that they are controlled by the
wind and change direction as necessary.
   The hand of the hammersmith was trained by repeating the gesture of hammering thousands of times. The sails of the windmill can move fast when the wind blows hard and thus ensure that its gears run smoothly. The archer allows many arrows to go far beyond the target, because he knows that he will only learn the importance of bow, posture, string and
target, by repeating his gestures thousands of time and by not being afraid of making mistakes.
   And his true allies will never criticise him, because they know that practise is necessary, that it is the only way in which he can perfect his instinct, his hammer blow.

   And then comes the moment when he no longer has to think about what he is doing. From then on, the archer becomes his bow, his arrow and his target.

Socialize / Can anyone read Kanji?

I know the quality is lame, but can anyone make out the Kanji characters in this is for an internet treasure hunt thing, I think this is one of the clues.

edit- From what I've researched it looks like a question because it ends in "ka"....I could be very wrong though.
