About Me:
I like to think I practice Kung Fu more than anything else. All of the names that people might have for the things that I do are just specifics, areas of my kung fu that I am working on. Parkour fits into my training mindset as it is about moving without being about fighting.

I heard about buildering when I was about 16 and I wanted in right away. I was nowhere near in good enough condition to join in the fun, so I played around at buildering while I got in shape.

I first heard about free running when I was 24. After that I started testing myself to see how far I could jump, how many push ups... I wanted to see how able I was so I could judge my progress.

I didn't feel like I could keep up with people in a gym, and I didn't like the idea of running on a treadmill. So I started working out in ways that engaged me with my surroundings. As I move forward with my training I have been learning ways to improve my training.

Something that I have found in Parkour is a way to train my fear and trust in myself. Previously I was limited to confronting my fear of heights by simply being in high places. Now I can work toward confronting that fear by moving around in high places... I think I'll start by practicing my balance on the curb ;~P
Other Physical Disciplines:
For a while all I was doing to train was sprinting up hills in my neighborhood (Noe Vally back then). That was fun, but I never made it to the top of Twin Peaks, which was my lone shot goal.

It may be interesting to take a look at this guide, in order to start off on the right foot...
