Train Hard - Stay Humble

Getting Kicked Off or Out for Parkour & Freerunning?

[Strong language advisory!]

from Epic: "Take the knowledge and do with it what you please. =D
STAY POSITIVE!!"

He talks the talks and everybody has to walk the walk... not so much a problem in San Francisco as maybe in the rest of the Bay Area and/or California.

This is a good video. Its a bit disappointing that only 1 in 8 members have viewed it.

Good stuff; this should be a must-watch for beginners.

My understanding of the video is that Epic is trying to explain (in a youth-friendly language...) how to avoid negative reactions from practitioners when asked to leave premises (="getting booted").


He specifically mentions "to promote the avoidance of retaliations", as in: breaking stuff, bad-mouthing, verbally fighting and complaining, etc.


That was the "problem" I was referring to: not knowing how to positively react, hence missing the opportunity for creating a good reputation for the discipline and its practitioners.


The city, with its higher concentration of facilities users (of any kind!), requires a higher degree of regulation and control, therefore the likelihood of being asked to leave is higher, but usually users know how to react to that, and the matter rarely escalates.


In smaller centers, instead, overzealous law-enforcer and energetic youth have been having problems since Footloose times...
:)

 

But of course there are also lots of good examples where everybody understands and collaborates.

I think the problem of getting booted and dealing with ignorance is a wayy wayy bigger problem in SF than anywhere else in the bay...?

Never been kicked out of anywhere except in SF, where ive been booted from pretty much every training spot we have at one time or another.


Definitely a bigger problem in the city.
