Part 3 (Parkour Ukemi for the peel out) is out [Full vid linked in bio]
▫️
If you didn’t catch part 1 or 2, go watch those short videos first. You’ll find a link to those in the Facebook video description.
▫️
The peel out is one of the gnarliest falls in parkour. In this series we hope to bring resources to practitioners, coaches, and program managers so that we can mitigate the nasty injuries that can come from this fall if not addressed.

🙌🏽 We launched #parkour102 today at @parkouredu
This shot from a fun challenge I did while shooting our tic tac lesson :P

It's amazing to see our 100 series come to fruition. Everyone benefits from working on the fundamentals, which is why I love this series and why it was an honor to create alongside @ryanmford_ and @amosrendao.
These are the same concepts I was exposed to when I started training parkour in 2010 at @apexmovement. From this foundation I built myself into a multi time parkour speed champion. I'm so stoked that we can offer an even more refined curriculum to virtually anyone around the globe.
Link in bio - it's on sale right now too 👌🏽

Managed to get my leg out of that shinner situation and back roll.

If you don't know how to roll every direction including assisted dive roll variations, you're basically just asking for trouble. Scope the link in bio for a drill and other leads :)

My business partners @ryandemonford, @brandondouglass, and myself recently fleshed out a basic overview of our company formula and strategy inspired by a recent @waitbutwhy and @elonmusk collaboration.
Check it out if you're interested in our approach to entrepreneurship :)
▫️
Read more below from ryan on wait but why and Elon musk.
・・・
@ElonMusk is one of my biggest inspirations as an entrepreneur. Tim Urban AKA @WaitButWhy is one of my favorite writers who also happens to be a unique futurist capable of explaining even the most complex, abstract ideas to a 6th grader. They recently teamed up and released another mind-blowing masterpiece about the new Neuralink company which intends on merging human brains with the digital world. If you have any interest in entrepreneurship, technology, visionary thinking, etc., I cannot recommend their content collaborations enough (link in bio for their latest).
▫️
ANYWAY, after reading the latest Neuralink post on WBW and reflecting on their "Elon Musk Company Formula" diagrams for @TeslaMotors, @SpaceX, and Neuralink, it got me thinking about what my own version of that diagram would look like.
▫️
🔺Wait...but WHY do I do this whole parkour thing?
🔺WHY have I stuck to the parkour world as an athlete, coach, author, and entrepreneur for the past 13 years?
🔺WHAT is our goal with @apexmovement, @ParkourEDU, & other related projects?
🔺HOW will we get there?
▫️
Now, I gotta say that I am in no way trying to compare what I do to what Elon is doing with Tesla, SpaceX, etc., BUT I often try to think and act in similar ways. And actually, to be honest...Elon's ambitions and achievements make me feel a bit small and worthless at times, haha. But I also believe that no matter how big or small, contributing any sort of good in this world is a worthwhile pursuit. Ultimately, via parkour and my various companies and projects, I am also trying to create a better future for humanity. Just like Elon is with his ventures but in my own modest way.
▫️
Building this APEX company formula (based off WBW) with @amosrendao & @brandondouglass was a valuable exercise to help guide us through our chaotic entrepreneurial lives. If you're a ...

Got the owner of the my regular coffee shop doin her own regular morning routine of rail squats :) get it, Wendy!

Haven’t released a personal video for … 8 years?! haha
And I made this video about 2 years ago but haven’t released it til now… [shakes head]
▫️
I think I’ve been resistant to make videos like these (only showing highlights and best takes) because parkour videos can often skew people's ideas in a way that makes parkour less accessible to those who may need it most. Without the hard work, good falling technique, the examples of us adapting to mistakes, etc. people can walk away believing this is incredibly dangerous and that we’ve just been lucky up until now.
▫️
So I made a second half that gives you a little glimpse into my training behind the finished product: the strength training, falling, the many attempts it sometimes takes to get something just right.
▫️
Please keep in mind that this isn’t what beginner training looks like, as I’ve been doing this for over a decade now, but your journey into parkour doesn’t have to start at the level of all the sensational videos you see out there. It starts with developing a basic relationship with the world around you through falling, crawling, jumping, balancing, all at ground level. I hope this video inspires, educates, and entertains :)
▫️
If you’re interested in learning parkour, my partners and I have crafted curriculum over the last 12 years of coaching. We’ve turned it into a structured, online course you can find at ParkourEDU.org/course/parkour-101
▫️
Also, some of these clips are from that time I joined and helped @myrmlife
on that young #Helmsdeeper European tour of which there is content very soon to come, so go follow Myrm if you want to keep an eye out for that.

“Let us rewire our muscle memory in accordance to the true way of nature; let us find harmony with objective reality/God. Let us transcend mundane sidewalks, make a jungle of this oppressive urban architecture. No longer will we clumsily stumble through our existence, we will embrace obstacles as challenges and tools for rewriting our natural reactions. No longer will we cower in fear; our training will act as a venue for mastering our minds.” ▫️
