saying parkour isn't an achievement is like saying learning how to skate or ski isn't an achievement. eating dogshit is definately an achievement on some level, but the degredation of it kind of negates what little of an achievement it is.

Wow your mini blog seems to reflect the appitamy of why you really care about regurgitating useless information. Perhaps get some fresh air outside and get your legs moving it really 'evolves your mind'


Funnily enough that you wish to reject learning and portray your naivity towards parkour, or even other sports. If you confine your naivity, the boundary will shrink to accommodate itself to your sheer lacking level of understanding.

Elitism won't accomplish much, nor will wrongfully prejudging anyone or any type of activity. The essence of parkour is not about posing, if thats how you want to prejudge it as. If you are open enough to listen then you will learn. Parkour is about the rythmic elegance of mind and body. Understanding the philosophy of Parkour, is more than simple movement or performance of the movement. Parkour requires fludity, balance and smoothness. Its about focusing your attention to your mind, more than to the outside physical world. Its about following your own path, your intuition, to make progress step by step. Not to forget that its a hell of a lot of fun.

dont all competitions degenerate down to "dick measuring" contests as they become phenoms? surfing, skating and parkour are still aesthetically pleasing to many unfamiliar with them and still require a certain level of achievement, yes? if a person finds something intriguing, it should not be assumed that they will pursue or even support it.

i do agree. yet parkour would not be witnessed by nearly as many if it werent for these poser fags. i personally would be completely oblivious to it. they do only serve to spread parkour as a phenom though...

Decius, if you consider these people to be 'posers' but then simutaneously stating that it may be beautiful and spectacular, negates the fact that they are athletes in martial arts, gymnastics and climbing after many years of training. The 2nd and 3rd video actually feature the founder of Parkour- David Belle.

quote:
those that do parkour for themselves, for their souls, for the art or physical challenge, have no need for others' approval and therefore, have no need to be seen as "cool".

So whats the point of watching an actor in a movie or a tv show, going to a sporting event, going to an art museum, reading a book, listening to music or perhaps presenting your occupation through different mediums. Even more so- whats the point of being the protagonist itself. Why not publicise one's skills. You need to understand that the essence of parkour is absolutely not exculsively about posing. Sure it may seem to you, but its not if you look into it. Parkour is about the rythmic elegance of mind and body. Understanding the philosophy of Parkour, is more than simple movement or performance of the movement. Parkour requires fludity, balance and smoothness. Its about focusing your attention to your mind, more than to the outside physical world. Its about following your own path, your intuition, to make progress step by step. Not to forget that its a lot of fun as well.

The below video, will help.

lol. Noone trys to gain noteriety. That would be derogatory.

Age is such an impertinent factor not worthwhile considering., let alone irrelevent to this thread.

That guy, was sharing his sport, he was not embellishing his art form as superior over others.

I couldn't care less about the music used nor the entertainment value. Yes the videos may act as an endorsment of this nature, to the ignorant viewer of course, but that doesn't qualify them as a substitute what-so-ever. I guess some people simply don't realise the training these guys go through to get to where they are, at the stage where they have the ability to express their skills through a presentation. To state that what they express is not a product of their intense training of gymnastics, martial arts and climbing, is really undiscerning. Parkour is primarily psychological, the rest is physical.

Without philosophy, action has no meaning.
