  1. Sounds pretty dangerous to me. I think I'll pass. I've wanted to do something similar to that, but with parkour. (Courier racing) We play Capture the falg alot, and tag... but we never really race. I think it'd be really fun.
  2. I dunno, Jackie Chan is still pretty amazing! =] There are however martial art masters in their 80's that can move better then some twenty year olds. I think it depends on the activity you do, and the stresses it causes on the body. With proper training and condtitioning it may take away some of those stresses?
  3. Urban Exploration is amazing. I love going out to Portland and Seattle for parkour, but I also live next to a great area with rivers, lakes and tons of forest so every once in awhile I'll host a jam out here because it's hard for me to make it out into town all the time. But.. yeah, I agree, that that's the only reason I go into the city. =P What is Alley Cat racing?
  4. Do you believe in miracles yet?!?

    *bungu'punguyun* Narra... nhawuku.. marr-dhumbal'yun Hockey. :unsure: Yay foriegn languages! Haha. Although I hardly know any Yolngu, trying to learn it though. Pretty cool that you guys know Russian. I've always wanted to learn.
  5. Swede, I still think you could do some of the movements to improve your health and balance. I know a few people 55+ that do parkour. Their movements are a little slower, but that's fine. The point is that they're out there conditioning and moving. Keeping ;em in shape and healthy. But if you started doing parkour, stretching, light exercising, and balancing you'd probably feel pretty good. You could even build your own equipment, like a balance beam that's only a few inches off the ground so you don't have to worry about falling.
  6. Adi, thank you for writing that. I just wanted to make a brief article to kind of get people interested and maybe post some stuff later. I knew though that people like Dan Edwards, Belle, and Vigroux could explain it to people much better than I so that's why I kept it kind of brief with a lot of links. I know there are *many* views on Parkour, but this one I thought would help in the Urban Survival Section: Parkour was "created" or refined by David Belle and his father. It was created to help people with emergency situations. Such as in the Army... or a firefighter trying to rescue someone. There is a big article on the "creation" of parkour and the guy that started Movement Naturalle. But, like I said they can say it better than I can. And it's definitely not all about the 'reach or escape'. That was the easiest way for me to explain it to survival people. Parkour is a physical language, and it's hard to speak it to someone that doesn't do it. It's hard for me to describe why the cat leap (or arm jump) is my favorite movement to someone that has no idea what I'm talking about. Anyway, I do believe that these kinds of movements are created when we're kids and then somewhere we're told it's not okay to climb on things or run through town. Yes, you do need to train for many years for your body to handle the stress of some of the movements. But, that doesn't mean you can start out slow and work your way up. I've been training for... almost three years, and I still have to condition all the time and keep things low to the ground. (Where it should be anyway, being on rooftops is dangerous and stupid) Yes, Parkour has become very mainstream... and I hate it! I wouldn't mind so much if the media would put out the right message of parkour so you wouldn't have kids trespassing and destroying property. Because one day I think it will come down to "No Parkour" signs. They already have a couple here in the states. Annnyway.. If anyone is interested in training, great. Those are amazing sites that will give you all the information you need. They have hundreds of articles about physical and mental training, conditioning, health, safety, techniques, history, etc. It is recommended that you find an instructor to show you the ropes. This will be a littler harder in the states however.. Most of us learned from watching videos.. and that's definitely not the best way to go about it. Good luck and be safe!

  12. Campfire Talk

    That's awesome. I've always wanted a traditional bow. My dad got me a compound a few years ago. It's pretty cool, but I'd rather have something more traditional.
  13. I'm about 30 miles away and 600 feet above sea level. Although my friend is in the Coast Gaurd and is at Hawaii right now.

    Happy birthday! =D
  15. What's Your Ringtone?

    Haha. Yeeah, it's a good one. =] If there's one thing you guys should know about me, it's that I love Australia. <3

  17. Made a fishing spear...

    Looks pretty good. You should also try using some bamboo. Split the top into a couple sections, shove a rock down there to spread 'em, then sharpen and carve in the barbs. Works really well. Plus, you can have a really long straight spear.
  18. What's For Dinner Tonight?

    Went to a pretty cool Asian Seafood buffet tonight. Tried a bunch of different things. ...Frog legs don't taste like chicken. =P
  19. Campfire Talk

    Clear sunny skies today. Walked my puppy down the the lake today. He looooves to swim. =]
  20. Noobie here

    Welcome.
  21. Wouldn't that include mice, rabbits, phesent, and whatever else coyotes eat?
  22. I guess I just don't really understand.. if there is a decline in deer... put a ban on hunting them for the season or whatever. When the population on deer is down the coyote population will go down on it's own naturally, right?
  23. Native American Flute

    Anyone here play the Native American Flute? If so, what kind? I'm trying to get some ideas before I get mine.
