is key and should be regularly practiced (every to every
other day ideally in my opinion), keeping your body
strong and able to take strenuous movements.
My training, in general is Parkour specific, I run climb
and jump, I do no other real exercise or sports except
within my Parkour training.
I believe, through study and experience, that keeping
exercise within Parkour situation will make me better
at them and better suited to Parkour.
I practice Parkour as someone who believes there is
something wrong with society and humans in general;
who believes there is more to life than work and getting
worried over the small things in life.
Human bodies are amazing and have the potential to do
so much, we are too reliant on technology and I wish
to be able to do all/anything with my body when/if it
I am not religious, I do not believe in God/ and Gods,
but I believe there is something else, a spiritual side
of things, an understanding you obtain when training
your body and mind to an extensive degree, which is
where the discipline comes in.
Through practicing movements as a part of my training
with/for Parkour, occasionally I feel a sense of something
different, sometimes a movement was finished before
I even thought about it.
One example is when I was on a Tour, I clipped my feet
on a simple vault, without looking or seeing I knew
what was wrong with my feet, and why I fell, I was heading
face first to the floor and then........
...........A movement 'happened' (for lack of a better
word) and I was fine, no pain, no injury, ready to keep
moving if needed.
I wish to understand this feeling and develop an inner-vision.
An understanding of the global question, what is there,
which, to me, is why the DISCIPLINE of Parkour is so
important for my path.
The sense of achievement I feel from "creating"
a movement is why I practice like this. Regular "don't
touch the floor games", which force you to see
new possibilities etc.
THE MOVIE ICON TO WATCH BINARY'S MOVEMENT VIDEO
The opportunities to work on new movements in a given
area is fulfilling, I'll hopefully make a small documentary
about it soon showing examples of progression, but the
above video shows how I train my body, focusing on spatial
and body awareness.
Hope this aids your training, and give you an insight
into what I see, and why.
