Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

...now: an inspiring lesson from a "non-pro" (<- lol!).
If you think you've got your acrobatics, your railwork (!!!), or your handstands down, some motivation to push a little harder.
;)

Not what I usually mean when I think "Amateur!"... yet again... maybe I'm wrong.
:)

Also: "Link movements!", "Keep the flow!", "Carry momentum!" ("Dammit!" Lol...)

Watch it in HQ here.

Also, that Oleg video shows an example of maybe one way to vault over an obstacle backwards (at around 1:20). Maybe not the most practical, but interesting since some of us were trying to work out what to do in this situation last week.

I have difficulty seeing the lesson here, other than "go forth and be awesome".
I mean, sure, he has great flow, but I don't really see anything there that teaches how to get that level of flow. And it should already be a goal.
I was thinking about how to go about improving flow. Any thoughts from others would be great. I guess getting used to chaining particular moves together (e.g. kong to cat leap) can be useful, as this then means instead of having to think two moves ahead, you just see the obstacle that corresponds to that combination as an immediate action.
Definitely a fun and impressive video though.

...uhm ...yeah ...not exactly what I had in mind.

Comparing these two is a bit like comparing an expert, skilled, swift urban driver with Schumacher: yes, they both could go wrong, but the first would probably end up in a bumper fender, while the second could get his F1 airborne (after capsizing other two drivers) and land it on crowded bleachers. (<- wild exaggeration, don't try this at home... lol!)

No, my point was that there are advanced, inspiring and exciting skill levels, which are reachable.

I almost never watch people like Danny (Ilabaca) and Oleg thinking that I can learn something, because the way they move simply doesn't make any effin' sense!

One of the purpose of videos, IMO, is to trigger realizable dreams.
Another one is getting a kick out of it... true.

Oh, what the flow. That was amazing.
