I would potentially argue against gluing because eventually you're going to want to progress and you don't want to have to cut the pipe out.  Parkour visions and Apex as well as I think primal although I'm not sure, use 1 1/4 inch (thats the inner diameter) schedule 80 pipe.  For the least pokey/obtrusive setup I would probably go with keeklamps.  If you want something more modular than the keeklamp attachments then go for scaffolding clamps.  Sometimes if you go to jobsites that have been up for a while theyll sell you the old scaffold clamps on the cheap.  Make sure you cover the screwheads with tennis balls though or youll stab the sh*t out of yourself...  ;D

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Crushingly dead community
« on: September 14, 2013, 06:56:13 AM »
Around here (NC) nobody posts on apk and even our local forum died out, just a main page now. HOWEVER everyone is correct, while the internet community is rather stagnant, the local college club gets bigger every year, the facebook group  I admin has about 400 members, 150 of which are active at least part of the year, theres a gym opening soon 3 different groups teaching classes at gymnastics places, I'm apk certified and teach classes, a couple crossfit gyms have classes, and theres multiple groups of younger kids training on their own and every major city east of the mountains has at least 20-30 people training. but again if you search for it online then only 3-4 individual people show up.

Injuries - Discussion / Re: Cushioning
« on: April 02, 2013, 06:58:00 AM »
noo Im pretty sure the issue is not my foot strength, I've been doing parkour for about 5-6 years so I think I know the difference between a biomechanical vs pure lack of muscle mass issue and this is as far as I can tell biomechanical, If you stand on concrete with minimalist shoes for 40 hours a week then your feet are going to hurt, so far as I can tell the issue is that I need a shoe with a minimalist padding profile but with padding that is thicker throughout. I don't walk much its mostly stationary standing so the weight is on my heels more often than if I was walking ie. moving on the balls of my feet.

So this is only related to parkour so far as the fact I work and do parkour in the same shoes (varies between adidas sambas originals, adidas neo low top, feiyues, and onitsuka tiger ultimate 81's)  I spent about 6 months in a Waiting (tables) position in a restaurant with wooden floors, at that time the Onitsukas and some nike darts at the time would bruise my heels and cause occasional lower back and general chronic knee pain, but it would end immediatel upon taking the shoes off. Now I work at a coffee shop with concrete floors which is a lot harder on my feet, I notice that in the Sambas, feiyues, and neos that thereis so little padding that my feet are sore and bruised from being on concrete  but any time I wear anything with more padding like the Nikes or onitsukas the heel rise makes my heels, knees and back hurt. Ive tried insoles in the flat shoes but its still too much heel rise. basically any extended wear of anything with more heel rise than feiyues causes pain...so how do I build padding without having shoes with heel rise? Im thinking about modding my tigers and cutting out the wedge part and just leavingthe base white cushion but the deep instep could interfere? ideas?

I suspect they will have all the problems (and advantages) of the nike free run shoes. But go out and prove me wrong dude.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: What makes American Parkour special?
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:19:11 AM »
lol +1^^

Im in north carolina, we have several pretty individual groups here, one that focuses mostly on acro, one that focuses more on power moves and then a couple more who are more into crossfit/conditioning/speed and flow.  Most of those guys dont even like to flip, although i train mostly on my own I consider my self to be part of the last group,  After 2-3 years of training im begining to learn acro, but ONLY for the performance aspect, it really honestly isnt that fun or satisfying to me.  I can't stand training in gyms, makes me loose confidence.

« on: April 11, 2012, 08:13:13 AM »
Yep I've got four longboards, working on a fifth. You could say I'm a fan :P safety first though! Always a helmet, slide gloves when you go faster than you can run, first aid kit in a bag, and pads when your sliding and leathers and a full helmet when bombing. :P mostly a helmet though.

Unc Charlotte has a Parkour club and they often come up to train with the state guys and they always attend jams, did you guys make the one on facebook, we also have a state site if you didn't know. Ncparkour.com look me up on Facebook and I'll hook you up, Sean Endres, I'm doing a precision in my profile picture.

You'd have to choose your market carefully and keep it in a small area, other wise you would be outclassed by anyone on a longboard or bike.

Training has degraded to merely maintaining, no progression. Longboarding skill is up +1 level and I'm working on a (B)east film entry. It's gonna be called you samba me samba.  My body aches are all gone so the break from hard training has helped, shin splints are slowly getting better, so is hip flexibility (little by little) I'm becoming a boss keeper, better than I ever used to be, accidentally head butted somebody yesterday though and gave them a concussion. Not even a bruise on me though.
