I'M Not Wearing Hockey Pads!
Most of the time, i am really quiet person, a private man, one that minds his own business. But felt the need to address this issue to straighten out such matter (in the best of my ability on the every least)
For somehow, \('-')/ a video like this is getting some traction.
To some parkour guys I honestly know.
"puff I can do better"
The nicer ones would notice;
that's good control, despite the height, drop & that flaky landing platform, it was considerably a soft & pretty controlled movement.
But fret not I am not in over my head. Not even with the tiniest an hint of grandeur that this is an epic hit. Afterall, to many this is just another episode of stupidity stunt pull by some young punk in the eyes of many (one this time, I am the one shown doing it, hence my responsibility)
To begin, while i certainly look young. Alas! no one can be spared from aging and time. (hitting 30s)
Sure I do retain a certain badass to do seemingly epic shit.
*shakes slow*, no not really, not anymore =/
comparing to the youth today, *signs*, feels more like the image below especially when they nicely provide positive comment
While in private I love to pull this type of joke;
Kids don't do this at home......cause you can only do this outside! (Watch link to understand my tone & action)
However it is vital for viewers understand what they seen, that the movements this is done with years of training & even then, a great deal of understanding the fear can be controlled but the danger is very real.
Moreover, while I greatly desire that people be inspired to movement & understand that before we can help anyone else, we have to be strong first.
Where, much like batman, these movements and mindset would be liken to a symbol, that it is achievable By anyone that with training, mindset & lifestyle.
That when shit happens, we are not a victim of the circumstance, helplessly screaming for assistance or attempting untrained movements for hope of a favorable outcome.
No! But rather we be thankful that the training paid off & that we might walk in peace.
However, make no mistake, we ain't fooling around. Anyone can die if you screw around.
Therefore, I am greatly concern this would instead inspire some "would be young punk" to pull the next best "stunt".
When he meant;" I am not wearing hockey pats!", he was pretty much emphasizing they need the right mindset, training, understand that when we do things, we ain't fooling around.
So what is my purpose then?
Basically to hope to clear up & to explain that the purpose of such movement is to Be strong to be useful.
Parkour ain't some death defying stunt or trick. No.
It is a method of training the body, soul and spirit. To attain functional fitness to dominate our environment. Taking repsonsbility to only uterlize that very particular set of skills, skills have been acquired over a very long training.
Skills that make us useful in a situation that no one expect, desire and stay away if they can. Where its purpose lies amongst the helplessness of another.
A situation where your training is what stands in the gap. To make the difference & pick up where they haven't prepared.

Many thanks for reading & hope my thoughts have been at the very least, entertaining.
Fair day and good morrow.
