a change in my training

I'm setting a goal of running (or at least moving without stopping) the Oakland half marathon on March 23rd of this year. I usually only run as part of other activities like parkour or ultimate and primarily as part of warming up so running as an activity in and of itself is very new to me. I'm already a week behind in the 12-week novice half marathon training plans  I have found online! Luckily, running 3 miles or is no problem so hopefully I can build up to the 13.1 with a measured,…

Who I am and what I want

My name is David I have been into parkour since 2009. I did not take any real steps to begin actually doing parkour till 

around late 2010 when my internet searching payed off and I found a beginners class out in Berkeley, note at that time I had no idea what I was getting my self into it was a real wake up call. Then, I figured after spending lots of money to take the bart train there I really needed to to learn closer to home, of course I tried to take what I had learned in the…

Parkour Generations' Stephane Vigroux "awakening"

[Note for readers new to Parkour, or who are just recently getting familiar with the discipline:]

Stephane Vigroux was born and raised in France, learnt Parkour in Lisses with David Belle [arguably the initiator of the discipline as such], beginning in 1998, and has been part of the early growth of the discipline.

He then relocated to London, UK where he co-founded Pakour Generations [arguably the most successful Pakour…

any good foster city spots

I am starting parkour by myself and do it around my neighbourhood. The only problem is that there arnt many things to learn off of and try new things on. I was wondering if anyone knew cool places to go so I can try a little bit of everything.
Thank you.

Enjoy your Parkour spots until you can...

...and I'm not referring to other mayhem I have addressed previously, or to the fact that you may not be living around the same area (including the Bay's) forever, or you may even -God forbid!- quit Parkour (GASP!). :)


I just noticed that our urban surroundings change as much as our natural ones.

If you wait enough, urban planners, speculations, or road and facilities improvements…

My world premiere!

On a totally non-parkour-related topic, a film I shot is premiering in San Francisco this Sunday, March 11, at the Castro Theater. It's a feature-length scripted narrative film so it's my largest project to date, I'm pretty excited because of that and also because it's the centerpiece film at the SF International Asian American Film Festival so it'll be red carpet and all that. It will screen a second time in San Jose the following Sunday (Mar18) for the conclusion of the festival down…

Right, wrong and avoiding confrontations

Yesterday, after 4+ years training and volunteering in coordinating parkour sessions, I finally ended up in a verbal altercation with an annoying onlooker, who wouldn't quit complaining about the presumably "inconsiderate" behavior of our group.


In the past (and maybe also thanks to my older age and relative experience with life, work and differently opinionated individuals), I did manage…

This past week, Ryan and I (Albert) flew off to Columbus, OH to get the ADAPT certification from Parkour Generations and assist in American Rendezvous 2, hosted by Parkour Generations and…

Microsurgery (and parkour) changes lives

Three years after loosing part of his right hand to an M-1000 firecracker, 16 years-old Carlos is doing parkour, which "involves running, jumping, climbing, and vaulting through urban areas dense with obstacles". (Indeed!)


"Now a junior at Freedom High School in Oakley, he has a right hand that, upon first glance, looks almost normal. He is a varsity golfer and an…

everyday parkour fail

I just watched a guy steal a girl’s laptop on the BART train. Saw a guy. Watched a guy. I don’t know what I did, but one thing is for certain: I did nothing to stop it.


Let me go back a bit.


I’m waiting on the platform, writing responding to email on my crackberry about an animation idea involving candy characters. Train arrives, get on the train. Like any other train. Holding my bike by the stem, I walk onboard and quickly see that the space for wheelchairs is…

Bay Area People Should Check Out Seattle

I've been in Seattle for two weeks and it has rained literally every day.  However, there were some partly sunny patches in which I got some fun stuff done.  There are several great training spots including Freeway Park and Gasworks Park where you will not get bothered at all.…

end-of-the-month progress

Hi! Well, i havent been on much, but i have been working on parkour. I can now jump down 6 steps and up 4. i can hop over some small stuff, and im working out with circuit training the last 4 saturdays. 10 rounds, 3 minutes each, then a mile and half, then 20 wind sprints. My friend Nick, who I have been friends with for 8 years, can also hop small stuff, and were both getting better.


Its not alot, but i like it. Also, going to chiropractor.


Thanks and stay…

"Run" screening online

So I'm not much for parkour videos these days, but last spring I gathered a bunch of folks (including our very own Chris/Kaos and Lindsay) and made one that I hope carries more meaning than your usual running around because to me, parkour is nothing but a bunch of hackneyed street gymnastics without a mindful approach that carries into other parts of life. Check it out, let me know what you think (honest criticism appreciated).
