As I told you on a previous post, I’m starting to practice parkour, thanks to one friend who really pratices this from time ago.
But now the weather is quiet bad. Ar east for me, at least for practicing parkour. It’s kind of dangerous to jump and run over wet floors, steps, walls, and so.
We were about to go out to run on weekend, but was rainning, so we didn’t. I was with some friends in a funky concert, which was also fun, so wasn’t bad weekend after all 😉
Anyways, I was reading info about parkour. Techniques, trainings, moves and so. And also watching lots of videos and movies to learn the flow.
I watch movies like District 13, a not very remarkable action movie, but for the moves and runs of David Belle, known for being one of the father of parkour. The guy is really amazing…
And I found stuff to read on Parkourpedia, from where I got some pdfs with good stuff about techniques and how to start. Nice 🙂
The good thing of parkour is that you can practice anywhere and when you start to feel the philosophy behind the discipline, you see all the places and things as part of your playground. So you beginning to see the obstacles, not as so, but as things you can overcome and ways to pass through 🙂
Ok, I just start, but it’s not very different of the free and urban climb I used to do time ago. I still remember that time where I wasn’t seeing walls, but ways to climb up, neither buildings, but things and place where climb around… I use to feel free on those moments… Really zen moments 🙂
The next week I go to Gran Canaria (my real place 🙂 ) and I guess there will be a better weather and I will practice more.
Anyways, even today, when I was frozen waiting fro the train to come home from work, I was playing some moves to work out my balance and precision (and, actually, to keep me a bit more warm…).
Well, I’ll tell you my progress and things I learn. I hope you enjoy as much I do 🙂
