Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

Inspiration from anything for everyone!!! (warning: videos...)

Every now and then, I find myself a little "short on my dough" and going to the Y-M-C-A doesn't help... (Village People, 1978)
That's when I turn to YouTube for something REALLY inspirational, and usually not-directly-parkour-related, yet parkour transferable...

I will post a couple of my favorites, asking you to do the same, if you wish (embed or link), but trying to avoid obvious repetitions, uninspired commercials and predictable vids.
Also, writing a line, a title, or the reason why you deem it inspirational is nice, as well as keeping comments brief and as direct replies to each individual post...
[This will also keep our video section free from non-pk clips...]

I'll start out...

"There's lots of days where I can't be bothered, and where I have to get up, and then I do, and I start finding my rhythm, and after 10, 15 minutes I start to love it."
How true.

I can barely do a flip having my body tucked, and she is flying with her body fully extended...

how does that work?!

...the same way it worked for her learning a double back tuck at age 31 (in 1992): practice-practice-practice.
Check this hilarious video skipping directly to 6:15.

and if Bela says "you can do it", you CAN do it, alright?

(and repeat it, 'cause "once it's never"...)

8 hours a day....aouuuuuu 

I found it interesting to see the raw, unedited and unskewed footage of a person who does crazy, but well-executed movements like:

although he engages in some morally questionable activity in the first video several times, you can see the power, fluidity, improv and creativity that I feel somehow gets lost in repetitive training.

...I think "Don't do it" really summarizes well all I wanted to say.


Haha yes... I'm guilty in getting inspiration from people doing crazy things (started after watching Oleg Vorslav's first video lol).

you are completely right though. A large portion of the parkour scene in eastern europe is dominated by machismo. 

a video with a lot of nice bar-work, though (there's a small point where he takes a lot of technically unsophisticated but unnecessarily large drops):

my favorite part is, of course (predictably), the pants.

I remember watching videos of this guy from 2007... he wore dreads, was clumsy, a lot skinnier and not very well-coordinated. 

"I've always felt like I had a slight different way to view a city..."
So how about San Francisco?


God bless you,  Danny MacAskill!

How come I've never trained at the Wave Organ? That looks fun.

This is just "wrong"...

...dude is 5'5".


At some point "it's not about breaking records anymore"...
