Train Hard - Stay Humble
So me and a fellow BAParkour member, Chase Converse, were thinking about holding a jam on saturday to get to know everybody, and showcase our skills. Message me or him or comment on one of our pages if anyone is up for it. Thank you all in advance
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…Continue
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…Continue

Forgive me, Albert, for not giving you the chance to share this on BApk first, but I was very excited. The PKC boys return from Ohio tired, sore and accomplished! Cali represent!

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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
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.…Continue
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…Continue

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).
Well, uh, I'd like to say hi to everyone, and hope they have a great next year. One of my new year resolutions is to start training for parkour. That's one reason why im here.

So basically college is amazing. Theres a bunch of time to train, which totally destresses me, and I feel like I'm progressing a bunch. Also happened to recruit 2-3 new trainees haha.
BUT, coolest thing yet, I learned how to frontflip! Which I'm super proud about. I never thought I'd be able to do that, but now that I can, I might start trying to learn more freerunning techniques like palm spins and what not to incorporate into my move set.
FINALLY, I'm giving…Continue
