The Adventure of Parkour

Authored by Dan on Wednesday 12

What is parkour? For me it's simple. It is a warrior's art. It demands your all and makes no apologies. It expects your best and accepts nothing less. It's a personal journey toward self-mastery, honest self-expression and realisation. It's a living art born out of visceral experience of the real world. It isn't for show.

Andy's Story

Over the last few years I’ve given numerous talks, run various workshops and taught lots of people about how I work. I’m frequently asked for advice on how to take good parkour photographs. My answers include: take a LOT of shots, get low, use a wide angle lens, use a fast shutter speed, pre-focus, don’t put the body in the middle of the frame, create space underneath the body to increase the sense of height - lots of rules that work about eighty to ninety percent of the time.

Junk Training

Last week I moved from London in the UK to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. It was a move that happened as a result of my fiancé getting a new job and I tagged along like some kind of useless luggage.

I spent the first 3 months of the year in Gambia working on a voluntary media project and whilst there, I discovered great potential for training locations. Most of my spent time was spent working but the moment I had free time, I set about exploring the area making mental notes of the best places to train.

2012/2013 has been one of the most challenging years of my Parkour career to date. Anyone who knows me will know that I picked up a shoulder injury in Kickboxing at the end of September last year....

Our Wild Nature

“Moderation?” He leaped on the desk, like an evangelist. “It’s mediocrity, fear, and confusion in disguise. It’s the devil’s reasonable deception. It’s the wobbling compromise that makes no one happy. Moderation is for the bland, the apologetic, for the fence sitters of the world afraid to take a stand to live or die. Moderation is lukewarm tea, the devil’s own brew!”

Climbing the Mountain

Authored by Dan on Saturday 27

Movement is a lot like language: to be able to utilise it you must understand the alphabet, know how to organise letters into words and then how to combine those words using grammar and syntax to create sentences. The letters alone are useless, only sentences enable fluency and function; equally, ill-formed and incomplete sentences, poorly spelt and constructed, are clumsy, confusing and ineffective.

I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible; to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.      -  Dawna Markova

Concerning Finns: the Finnish parkour community remains unknown to most of the world but somewhere up north there is a strong and active family of traceurs. A stereotypical Finnish practitioner can be described as quiet, dedicated and with an odd sense of humor (there are many exceptions of course). The long winter period affects the training regime of these cold-hardened individuals as up to 5 months of snow (knee deep) require some adjustments to be made to your training.
