About Me:
I LOVE parkour. Efficiency is my goal, I'm not out there to show off and impress people. I want everyone to engage in urban movement for their own reasons and just try to help others in whatever they might being trying to accomplish. Just learn something about your body and your mind.

Other Physical Disciplines:
A little breaking, a little martial arts, a little freerunning longboarding, building/ remodeling houses (great natural method workouts)

Notes on UMass Conditioning Night #3

Thursday, 9/11/2008

About 15 people showed up tonight, we did some dynamic stretching to warm up, then moved onto an upper body circuit with half of the group and a muscle up lesson with the other half, then switched the groups. Next I taught some different vaulting techniques and we finished up with a sprint up a hill and a backwards jog down then a cool down stretch.

Discussion #4

-This ties in to the last one but I think it deserves it's own spot. Does practicing parkour completely devoid of tricks allow you top better focus on efficiency? Is that the main goal of parkour? Is Widdim, or anyone else, taking parkour to a level beyond David Belle's intentions by training this way? Discuss.

I was and I will again; I just don't know if I will be able to manage it next semester, but we will see.

UMass is a cool place: and the FAC has some awesome but dangerous obstacles near the duck pond of terror. Southwest I just avoid like the plague.

I used to go there and i might return next year, but that is dependent on my finances and other conditions. How is the UMass Parkour RSO?

Hey just curious if your satisfied with any of the opinions you've received about your thoughts on David Belle & efficiency. I would imagine it's a little tricky to take everything people are saying in because people are hardly agreeing with you. Just remember why you threw your thoughts out there in the first place and why you want to hear what people have to say about them. Was it simply to hear everyone agree with you? or to convince people to think in a similar fashion? or to see where other people stand on the same topics? What ever your reason, (I don't care what it is, it's for you to know) are you getting anything you hoped for?

Overall despite whether you are satisfied with any of the feedback or not, I'm surprisingly glad you started this whole thing. I think you've got some people saying things that are totally worth listening too, and you made that happen.
