Hi guys,

My names Dave and I have been doing parkour now for a little over 3 years now. I went to Ithaca College graduated there and have been training in Albany NY for awhile. However, I am moving to Bristol CT to start a career for myself. I was wondering what kind of spots if anybody knows are there around Bristol? Hartford?

I would really appreciate any of your guys' help, maybe meet up with people and train if my schedule matches any of you guys'.

Also, here is a link to some videos of me or by me, graduated with a video production degree....Some of you may have seen the documentary about passion and movement a while ago it was on the APK news and youtube channel called 'Move'. That was a project that I shot and edited about parkour, also, I just put out a video recently of me training with some people in Albany check it out.....

Hey guys, has been awhile since I have posted a video on here been busy with graduation and sorting out my life. Wanted to thank everyone for the support and comments on my project "Move".

This past month I was over in France and Japan for a month traveling with my friend Zach who featured in "Move". Anyway I brought my camera along and filmed a lot of the trip its a 28min video but there are little snippets of parkour spread throughout the video. We trained with some locals in Lisses/Evry and in Japan we met up with PKTK to train in Yokohama

The Lisses/Evry footage starts around 5:30...then the Japan pk stuff starts around 20:30 and goes to 24:00

Anyway watch the whole thing and let me know what you think its our adventure through France (Paris, Versailles, Lisses/Evry) and Japan (Tokyo, Yokohama, Kyoto)

I hope you guys enjoy let me know what you think.

As always let me know what you guys think its been great doing parkour in the Ithaca area...Also, another thanks too all the comments and support I have received from you guys on my documentary "Move".

Train well

Hi guys for the last semester I have been grueling away at work shooting and editing my senior thesis video production for Ithaca College. My goal was to make something visually appealing involving parkour but have the message be to become passionate about what ever it is you do. So this video is not focusing really on parkour but using movement from parkour to show passionate people. It is 13 mins long and I have spent over 120 hours on the total project working alone.

Anyway let me know what you think about the message that comes across from it here are two links:  (it may load slow but play smoother then facebook)
Here is the info: A visual exploration of movement as a passion and as a way of life. Senior video thesis project showing passionate people doing their passion to hopefully motivate you to think about your passion or find something no matter what it is to be passionate about.

In this video: Zach Berenzweig and Chris Delsavio

Shot, Edited, Directed, Produced by: Dave Pierpont

As always thoughts, feedback, whatever you wanna say is welcome...thanks guys

Pics & Vids / Ithaca Parkour Movement Fun - April 2009
« on: April 20, 2009, 06:34:36 PM »
Zach and I (Dave) focusing on flow and movement at Ithaca College. It has been awhile since we have put out a video, have been concentrating on conditioning and technical skills, not so much big impressive moves. We have been training parkour for 2 years now. We feel that this video properly describes our journey into parkour as well as our interpretation of what parkour means to us. Comments and Advice Please.

Watch In HQ please.

Parkour And Freerunning / Future Arthritis in hands/wrists?
« on: April 04, 2009, 02:50:50 PM »
Hi guys,

just a concerned traceur here...My roommate and I have been doing parkour for a little over 2 years now and were just thinking about the future. We are concerned that as we grow older that because of our parkour when we were younger will pretty much make our hands/fingers/wrists arthritis stricken. We train/condition properly for legs and every joint and part of the body. However, there really is no way to condition the wrists or small joints in the fingers.

What do you guys think about this? We obviously do many pull ups, push ups, dynos, muscle ups, which obviously help condition the wrists but does this actually help or destroy the hands in the future.

Pics & Vids / Quick PK Run Through
« on: August 05, 2008, 01:13:16 AM »
Hey guys I figured I would post this video of myself its been awhile since my last video in  November 2007 when I was 3 months from hitting my one year of training. In this video I am doing a straight run through of an area that is a little dense, this was my first bit of serious parkour in almost 3 months due to a knee injury that slowed my parkour progression but not my strength training. The knee injury was knee bursitis that has pretty much healed now. I hope you guys like the video, as always comments are welcome.


Pics & Vids / Parkour Generations brief footage/collage

Hey im dave from ithaca, i was down in nyc with my roommate zach for the training day...i brought my camera but ended up barely using it because we were training and doin all the conditioning. I only used the camera during little breaks, so there really isnt any action footage, mostly just the areas and vigroux.

I figured I would post the video anyways just so people could get a little glimpse of what it was like. Can't wait to see Julie's video.

found a link of a trailer to a new parkour documentary/film.

It looks extremely interesting and is based around Charles and Malik from the yamakasi. Just wondering what you guys think? and if anyone has information about when it comes out and its availability.
