Farewell SF, I'm going home

oh no, your government doesn't want me anymore.
I'm flying back to Australia Feb 14/15th.
I plan on training as much as I can between now and then.
I'll be back in the states in May/June. Probably start on the East Coast, and visit SF towards the end.
You guys better not have piked by then.

it's been fun

A Different Kind of Journey

So after a few months of some slight back pain I decided it was time to go see the doctor. I am always hesitant to go see a doctor. The good thing about going is you know what is wrong with you, the bad thing is that you know something is definitely wrong with you.

Well I officially have Degenerative Disk Disease in my lumbar spine with narrowing between my vertebra at the L3-4, L4-5 junctions along with sciatica in my right leg.

I don't really know what caused it, frankly… Continue

So it begins...

I lived in Portland until last year, where there was only a small parkour community, and I never bothered getting into it. Over Christmas break, I remembered that I wanted to get into it, and started searching around for local groups. Lo and behold, there was one that Sunday, and after double checking that beginners were welcome, I hopped that hour-long bus ride out to a strange new highschool in an area I'd never been in.

That bus ride has become very familiar since then, as I've… Continue

Happy coming home :D

Jan 9

Ok, i'm at home now, yes. But the way I see it I'm fortunate enough to have two homes, two pk families, so whether I'm going to SF or going to LA, I'm always coming home :)

Sappiness aside, I got some good training in over the break and started learning some flips and double kongs and stuff in the gym. I'd like to see if I can at least take the double kong outside ;) And it was funny seeing my (biological) family back east this Christmas cause I got a few comments of… Continue

2009 New Year resolution(s)

..I'll start with one, and write it down to remind myself of it (and invite everybody else to do the same with their PK -or not- related resolutions...), I may add to the list, at some point:


The glass IS half-full !!!

It's going to take me some effort, but, also thanks to pk and the community I belong to, I should be able to make it...


p.s.: my life-long resolution is: Get it done!...

I consider…

Why I practice Parkour.

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.… Continue
