Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

Page 124, "Off the Wall" in 5 page section called Bodywork, mostly devoted to getting ready for ski season. Author described what we do as "Cirque de Soleil meets running from the cops." For a 2/3-page blurb, author did a pretty good job I think--well, that's relative, might not be too good if PK gets too popular.

PK should get worldwide recognition, because it has already worldwide presence.
Unfortunately, due partly to the "fast-food" approach of Media, to the aggressiveness of advertisement agencies, coped with the relatively young age of discipline and practitioners, confusion seems to reign in mainstream perception...

For complete info, the title of Outside Mag article is:
THE LAB RAT - Is this parkour craze for real? Our man goes off the wall to find out. (By Nick Heil)

This is really nothing new, having these major Media reps covered parkour from the same angle:
- Time
- Sports Illustrated
- The Washington Post
with alternative mediocre results...

BApk appreciated and endorses the New Yorker magazine outstanding coverage with it's printed and online article and 1 hour video.
"Cirque du Soleil meets running from the cops"... I think Meatlad can sue for plagiarism ;)
"Cirque du Soleil meets running from the cops" is not what we want the media saying!!!
lol. I think meatlad's "dancing mixed with martial arts" might even be a little tamer than this one, albeit more ridiculous.
