So I decided to post my full AOM Submission video on Facebook so I can make a little statement. I am not at all upset that I did not make it in the online video qualifiers. I am also extremely excited for all those who made it in! I had a goal in mind for this video when I filmed it. My one goal for this video was actually not to just get in to Art of Motion. My goal was to make the absolute best video on ambidextrous tricks that I could make and by doing that I hope to inspire other people to start learning tricks on both sides. That is my goal for this video. I don't believe the average parkour athlete realizes the benefits of this skill set. I won't go super in depth about this, but here are the top three reasons this skill set is helpful:
1. Ukemi (the art of falling). Being aware of both sides increases your air awareness and falling safe capabilities.
2. Flow. Sometimes athletes catch themselves in situations where they wish they could finish a line with a certain trick but cant because they have never worked jumping off their opposite leg or twisting that direction.
3. Learning/creating new tricks. A lot of tricks are opposite tricks put together. The easiest and most obvious example of this being "un-twist". An Arabian-unhalf is just an Arabian and an opposite side front half put together. I am on a road trip right now and traveling across the USA I've already seen the impact my video has made to change this sport. I've seen the new generation begin working on both side tricks solely because my video inspired them to start. So I am extremely happy that I made this video and hope it inspires all athletes to become better athletes in this way.
