Hello all. The first episode of "Move or Die" Zombie Parkour will be filming in March. I am looking for my Zombie stunt team to chase after our Traceur! If anyone is interested feel free to message me. I'm posting two links of tow advertisements of placed for this project. If you are not interested I'd appreciate it if you can pass it along. This my first short film out here in the Bay Area and I look forward to meeting and working with all of you either on this project or one in the near…Continue

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,…Continue
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…Continue
[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…Continue

...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…
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).
