there are a good many georgian traceurs who use overflux, there are groups in athens and atlanta, and people scattered all around georgia. if you register with overflux I'm sure that you would find something.

you notice kids "playing" and us training is fairly similar. many kids are really good at keeping themselves in fair shape because of their activity. never stop playing

did anyone else notice that really tall drop from the window, with no roll. first, if he actually did that without wires I would be AMAZINGLY impressed, second, even if it was with wires that was one of the most beautiful landings I have ever seen.

Not bad at all. I would suggest trying to keep your legs closer to your body during your catgrabs, otherwise just try and cut down on extraneous movement while you are in the air, don't flail your arms and such.

The difference with wall flips is that you can get extra steps in because you end up pushing off the wall instead of trying to grab the top and not fall back down. I have only learned to use two steps on my wallruns but I have been meaning to try using three.

I recently answered this question in another forum so I will paste what I said there to here

one thing many beginners do is lean too far forward when you hit the wall, if you lean back it will put more direct force into your foot instead of diagonal force causing you to slip on the wall. important, also, is speed. you must be confident enough in your wallruns to approach the wall with speed but the faster you run the more momentum is going to be transferred up with the wallrun, thus causing more height. another thing I see many people do is only use one foot to push off the wall, it is true that you must first become comfortable with the one foot method before moving on a two step method can be quite useful for the top out of medium height wallruns. if you are attempting to get on top of a wall it is much faster to use the two foot method than merely grabbing the top of the ledge and pulling yourself over. the key to the second tap maintaining your momentum up and over the wall is in the timing and the placement of your feet and hands. you will want your first push off the wall to propel you high enough to get the entirety of both hands over the edge of the wall, giving you more friction with your hands and thus preventing slipping. as for the timing of all this, after push off the wall with your first foot you want to place your hands on top of the wall as described above, and only a second after you place your hands on the top of the wall, these movements will almost see simultaneous, use your other foot to push almost straight behind you, causing you to rotate propel your lower body high enough into the air to either clear the obstacle altogether or plant both feet on top of the wall.

try to use a second foot in your wallrun. also try not to straighten out at the top, try and keep your legs infront of you and on the wall, then you can use your feet to aid in the climb-up

they mentioned belle but did not credit him with founding the disclipine, implied that parkour and freerunning are the same, and said that foucan founded freerunning, thus confusing people. I understand you didn't mean for the misunderstanding. by the way, I really want to train with you guys.

to analogue the foam hazards, why don't we just make everything padded, and if you hit any padding you can think, "My head would have just been broken" but it doesn't really sink in. Pain can also be a very useful training tool.

A parkour park would be okay except it wouldn't be "real" so to speak. most parks would have super grippy surfaces and the parkour park would become a buffer, people would say, "in the parkour park I can do a 15 foot wallrun but not anywhere else." we must think back to the utility aspect, is it efficient if you can only use a movement in a specific place. we train to move with speed and efficiency through our environment. we do not usually live in a parkour park, we live in cities and towns, should we not train in our cities and towns?

didn't you post this a little while ago? besides that, take it easy on the drops. that first shot looked like you didn't nearly have the strength to resist the downward force. It looked like you just crumpled into the roll.

that was pretty good, the only thing I can criticise is your wallruns, try and use both feet to run up the wall instead of just propelling yourself up with one.

do you throughly stretch your shoulders? you might just be very unflexible in tat type of shoulder movement, to stretch that general region out lay on the ground on your stomach with your arm at a right angle to your body, slowly roll over so your body is facing away from your arm and you feel it stretching. that has helped me.

Mark, just so you know the global parkour community might like you a little more if you spent less time talking about how much time and money you sacrificed, you seem to feel like you are entitled to something, and if parkour were really your passion you would have already reaped the benefits of your own actions by how much you have helped the community. I am not questioning your benefit to the community, APK is an amazing resource and the gyms are as well, but if you truly practiced parkour and felt the love for it that many here do, you would be perfectly content to improve yourself and not expect everyone to treat you like royalty because of all the work you have done. forrest, dan, and all those people not only train to be their best at parkour, they have done as much if not more work than you for the community and still ask for nothing back, one must earn the respect of people through actions, not words.

just so you know, a teaser only works if people want to see the finished product.

I have a very short bike-ride to my main practicing spot, well it is more of a cluster of spots.

I know that it would be wrong, but someone should steal that.

converses are no good for parkour. those were the first shoes I wore for parkour and they have terrible grip, no cushion (which can be good or bad depending on your stance) and have a strange balance to them, all the weight being in the sole. there are much better shoes with and without cushion for parkour.
