We all know how the public perceives our discipline. They label us as “Adrenaline Junkies”, “Daredevils”, “Hooligans”, etc. The problem is, we allow the media to do all the talking and that is why we are left with this negative representation of Parkour. How can you accurately talk about something you have never experienced? I propose that us Traceurs stand up for our discipline. We should take pride in what we do and ensure that the public receives an accurate and hopefully positive impression of Parkour.
We all yearn to get better, but how do we do it? Simply put: we train, a lot. But wouldn't it be helpful if we knew a few tips for more efficient improvement? I think it would be very helpful! That is why I have compiled a list of 101 ways to improve as a Traceur. I will not go into too much detail on each point, so make what you wish of each idea presented in the following list.
Red Bull Art Of Motion has come and gone and we are left with another chapter in the history of Parkour. This year was quite interesting and I would love to tell you all about it, but I recommend you check it out here and come back after you finish. The point of this article is not to recap the details of the event, instead I will be analyzing AOM (Art Of Motion) as a whole and sharing my thoughts on competitions in general.
The future is coming, there’s no doubt about that; The real question is: What will happen to our beloved Parkour when it gets here? I am going to expose what I believe to be the most probable future. Of course the future is only speculation and the past is gone forever. We must live in this moment, for it is all we have. Our everyday experiences are what shape the coming times. We must make use of our 86,400 seconds we are blessed with calling our own each and every day. Before you read on I must inform you that the future is not concrete, we still have the power to change it, don’t lose hope!
We all want to know what makes a great Traceur. I am not talking about physical ability, I am talking about traits. What mental characteristics allow them to excel at what they do? I have done some research and I am happy to share the results with you, enjoy.
