Women / National Jam

What do you ladies think of having a national women's jam this summer?? I've been seeing so much more interest. Even if we could do jams in different regions all over the states, that would be awesome. Let's talk it out and discuss!

Women / Lower Body Work Outs

A little vid I made of some filming of my work outs for specifically lower body. I suggest reading the youtube description :) Enjoy!

Women / Muscle Ups
« on: February 19, 2011, 11:50:02 AM »
Finally got muscle ups on the rings. I've been able to do slowish one's on bars for a while and now since I've gotten this, those are much faster. Still working on it but I figured this was legit enough to film!

We put out another video (: Check it out!

Tara and I out having fun, as usual. We have been trying to take our training to a new level, so this is a more "serious" video. All this footage is still from before Christmas 2010. Just recently in the past week or so we have experienced a lot of progression. Right now, though, we want to show you all part of our training journey to today. Enjoy!

To all the traceuses training...Challenge yourself, make goals, and work hard. You will be amazed at how far you will go. (OOPS! Bloopers, Bails, & Fails)

So I posted this in pics and vids but thought I'd repost it here since it is the ladies forum! (: This is a video my friend Tara and I put together. We had so much fun just moving, messing around, being serious...all of it! Hope you all enjoy.

My friend Tara and I filmed a day of training at UCF in Orlando, FL. We did a lot of messing around but also have some solid movement in here. It was sooo much fun! Enjoy (:

Pics & Vids / Florida Parkour (Orlando/Daytona Jam)
« on: November 03, 2010, 05:00:19 PM »
This is some footage of a jam held a couple weekends ago, in Orlando, Saturday and Daytona on Sunday. Thanks to all of FLPK who came out and Jace Iley, who filmed and edited. We had people from Pensacola, Daytona, Gainesville, Tampa, and Orlando among other cities in FL. Also, props to the 4-5 ladies who came.

We all trained hard and had tons of fun, as well!! Hope you all enjoy (:

^ This is just a quick video edit I made of my training from when I first started in Novemberish to some random Spring training. I'm planning on making another but that'll be showing a lot more progression. This one doesn't quite show my skill level but just some conditioning and repetitive training.

^This is some footage of all the awesomely skilled traceurs I've been training with! And somehow they snuck me in there. Special thanks go out to Graham, Chris G., Caleb, Danny, Tom, and Victor. I love them all dearly!

Hope you all enjoyyy.


Women / Progression
« on: June 05, 2010, 05:57:49 AM »
Hello Ladies!

There hasn't been much going on in the women's board. I thought it'd be fun to see how everyone's progressing or what all you traceuses have been up to! Any accomplishments or goals? I know everyone is probably getting into the groove of summer now that classes are over/almost over. I have a lot to say!

1) I've been training every day for the last couple weeks and it has really been paying off. I also started some more intense conditioning that I am hoping to continue next week. It feels SO good to be sore. I am doing a lot of body weight training, core, and really going to focus on lower body, which is my weak area.

2) Right now, in my training I am focusing on precisions. A bit on the side, I've been trying to get comfortable with monkey/kong vaults. I am doing really well with vaults such as the lazy, thief, safety, reverse safety, speed, etc. So in an effort to move on to things I am not as comfortable with, I am perfecting my precisions while still incorporating vaults and other movement into my training. And as always, working on that roll technique and softer landings!

3) There are some specific movements I am trying to accomplish. I am working on a lache that I ALMOST have on some outside bars. My hands are getting torn up so it is painful to swing for long. There is also a small kong to precision that I am also extremely close to getting. I think it will all come with more strength which is why I'm conditioning. I am also trying to get more comfortable with precisions that are at a height. And I am just talking maybe 5 ft. high and not that far apart. It's the sort of situation where I can do a bigger precision on the ground and this smaller one at a height is giving me the biggest mental blocks. I have done it but it takes me a while to muster up the courage. So I figure if I drill my precisions that will help me become more comfortable.

4) Quirks: I have found that I enjoy striding much more than precisions. The guys I train with think this is hilarious. They tell me one day I'll be better than Philly D. To which I responded "Who is that?" After a few videos on youtube, I found out! I am also finding that bars are very fun! Wall runs are probably my most unfavorite. Once I am better at more basics my plan is to work some climb-ups. I can struggle to the top of a relatively high wall but it is not so pretty! I find that cats are fun too. Been trying those out more.

All in all, I feel I'm at the point where I have learned a lot of individual movements and now I want to put them together. I still have ALOT to work on, even in the individual movements and I learn more and more every time I train. I am really loving it, though and having tons of fun!!

Tomorrow I am going to Daytona Beach to have a small jam with all guys. I'll be at LVPK next weekend for the women's seminar/jam. Then, around June 26 I am going to the Southeast Auburn, AL jam where I hope to meet some fellow traceuses. In July I'm visiting a cousin in Los Angeles so I hope to train some there. Then mid July I might be going to another Jam in Indiana (not set in stone, though) and one day I'll make it to D.C.

That's about it! I'm really excited to learn and really better myself this summer! If there are any traceuses in FLORIDA, please please contact me. We have some awesomely dedicated traceurs around here but as far as I know, I'm the only traceuse who is as dedicated. I'm in Orlando/UCF area which is pretty central. I can easily get to Tampa, Gainesville, Daytona, Ft. Myers, Naples, Miami, & Tallahassee.

In traceuse news...Since I made a parkour album on facebook, I have had 6 girls who expressed serious interest in trying out parkour. It looks like I'll be trying to do a weekly "class" for them with some of the traceurs I train with. Wish me well! I also have some video footage building up so we'll see where that goes.

Thanks for reading! Please respond with what you're up to and how your training is going. I want to hear from ya'll :)


Women / Hello!

Hello fellow traceuses! My name is Joy-Marie and I am from Orlando. I've been training on and off since around October 2009. Just recently got into the groove of training and conditioning twice a week with a little group of guys here in Orlando. I just can't learn enough! I'm excited to get to know fellow ladies, although I know of none really in my area that take this seriously. Taking it easy this weekend because I recently bruised my hip & thigh slipping and sliding down the side of a rail. Ouch!

(and this is for you Hannah...hahaha)

Welcome! / Hellooo

My name is Joy-Marie. Some people call me JM. And I am finally registered on APK due to the nagging of several people from LVPK. I am rather new to parkour and just progressing slowly but surely. :) I've got some awesome people guiding me along.
