About Me:
Born in SF and currently live on the SF Peninsula. Work and train in Berkeley throughout the week, and I’m always down to jam if I’m available.

“Dig 10 miles deep and 1000 miles wide.”
I’ve dipped my beak in many disciplines, incorporating what is useful to me; I love exploring how to apply the techniques I already know in my parkour, a relatively new training ground for me.

In the beginning of 2009 I started seriously training. I was introduced to it (not knowing what it was) with the Nike Presto commercials long before that, but I never thought of it as something I could do if I tried—like taking up a new sport or playing an instrument—to me they were just “stunts”.

It wasn’t until I showed my mentor some Yamakasi videos, when he told me, “once I see another man do something, I KNOW I have the ability to do the same thing…and if I can break it down and articulate exactly what he did—the only difference between us is gung fu [hard work/training].”

That got me thinking.

Dear Jibril: we are a little disappointed that you never posted/fwd. us the video that you filmed and broadcasted about BApk's traning.
We thought we did a great job of collaborating with you.
We were under the impression that you would have followed up someway, and allowed our members and volunteers to watch the footage...

We would really appreciate your feedback.

Sincerely,
BApk

Hi Jibril, how are you doing?
Haven't seen you in a while, hope all is well...

I was wondering if you ever had a chance to burn that footage you guys edited to dvd.
Maybe you could just upload it as a video, if you think it could be interesting...

Thanks and hopefully see you soon,
G.
