About Me:
I like to think I practice Kung Fu more than anything else. All of the names that people might have for the things that I do are just specifics, areas of my kung fu that I am working on. Parkour fits into my training mindset as it is about moving without being about fighting.

I heard about buildering when I was about 16 and I wanted in right away. I was nowhere near in good enough condition to join in the fun, so I played around at buildering while I got in shape.

I first heard about free running when I was 24. After that I started testing myself to see how far I could jump, how many push ups... I wanted to see how able I was so I could judge my progress.

I didn't feel like I could keep up with people in a gym, and I didn't like the idea of running on a treadmill. So I started working out in ways that engaged me with my surroundings. As I move forward with my training I have been learning ways to improve my training.

Something that I have found in Parkour is a way to train my fear and trust in myself. Previously I was limited to confronting my fear of heights by simply being in high places. Now I can work toward confronting that fear by moving around in high places... I think I'll start by practicing my balance on the curb ;~P
Other Physical Disciplines:
For a while all I was doing to train was sprinting up hills in my neighborhood (Noe Vally back then). That was fun, but I never made it to the top of Twin Peaks, which was my lone shot goal.

Hey Pigeon, welcome!

Glad seeing you're ready to join us outdoor!
It may be interesting to take a look at this guide, in order to start off on the right foot...

But, other than that, come out soon!
