Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

In the beginning I saw a clear path, a strong motivation, and a whole lot of meaning. Over the months it has disintegrated, I no longer had the drive and lost my way. But recently, my old drum teacher gave me a call, he had moved to Arizona and came over to my house for a lesson. He described everything spiritual in drumming, how it is a dance, how one fluid motion resides over all the tom's, cymbals. And that's when it hit me. I had given up the idea of drums recently when Parkour was here. But I now understand, that both drumming and parkour complete me, and each other. My initial stopping of playing the drums, affected my parkour. But now I remember why I love parkour so much. It is it's connection to the philosophy of drumming. I simply can not have one without the other, and I didn't realize it, which brought me to a grinding hault on both parkour and drumming. It is when you are able to integrate anything you love into what you make most of your life, that signals and reveals a truth behind any thing. I bring what I learn from drumming into parkour, and visa versa. There is a remarkable harmony in nature. A friend told me, "To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did." I will defintely meditate the mind as well as the body when practicing Parkour now.
