Bay Area Parkour

Train Hard - Stay Humble

Great coverage of the South Bay group Saturday session and of the works done by its organizers: Tom, Keenan, Thomas among others:

 

"I was out of shape. I couldn't do a pushup," Zheng admitted. At first he practiced with his brother, but then found Bay Area Parkour, a virtual space for traucers and trausers [sic!] (female) to connect.

At a session, they warm up with exercises, such as quadrupedal movement--on both hands and feet--to prevent injuries. During this time, participants' physical condition and body awareness is evaluated by the leaders. 

After that, the leader follows a lesson plan and explains a movement and its purpose. Then, he performs a demo and teaches the students in incremental steps.

For instance, "get students to understand the dynamics behind landing and demonstrate and teach back proper landing form," Zheng said.

"It's about progression," Manely adds.

For example, a student might do the safety tap if she is not yet confident doing a move or if her speed is too low to clear an obstacle.

"By tapping your feet down, you help realign your center of gravity," Zheng says.

 

Great job guys!
