what is it 2 u

For discussion of the non-physical side of parkour.

what is it 2 u

Postby skullz » Fri Jul 13, 2007 2:52 pm

this may sound a bit strange but in this thread i really want you to open up your mind and tell me/every1 what parkour really is to you.


parkour for me is an escape. a time where no trouble the world throws at me can affect me. a place in my mind for pure tranquility.

how bout u?

Parkour is a friend I can turn to in my hour of need.
The obstacles are there, it's like they're waiting.
All thoughts descend into nothing.
All I see is what's ahead.
In this space I can think about my life but not worry about it. I come up with answers, both physically and psychologically.
Parkour is more than physical.
It transcends that every time I practise.

Parkour to me is the urge you get whenever you see a wall, a catleap, a precision, whenever you see an obstacle that stands in your way.

The urge to conquer that obstacle, whether mentally or physically, and the urge to find a solution, a way to pass.

Whenever you're sat down in school or whatever, and you just have the urge to get up, get out there and get some training done :)

Parkour to me is a way of looking at something in a different light. it’s a green light that’s tells you that you can go one step further.

I see Parkour as a different way of living life, the weird looks you get from passers by or people noticing you when your training, and yet doing the things us tracuers do has become a way of normal thinking to me... I think lol. When I see a wall or obstacle I automatically start thinking of new ways of getting around, over or through it and yet to the normal everyday person (if there are any left lol) they'll just see a wall! It has changed my vision not just of the environment around me but also of the way I want to live the rest of my life... lol (like an urban ape)

Really? So you think a one word answer is sufficient for an active discussion?

Interesting. Parkour is so much more than fun to me. I could write several essays on the matter.

Parkour... is way of life for me ... now i can do something what i thought is impossible to do that ( to me ) ... and i can see the world from a diffrent side ... City is a jungle, and i am a monkey in this jungle. When people watching me on the street and they says " his is a freak..." i dont care what they think about me. Becouse of parkour i am a diffrent guy, and i have my own world... I Feel free when i jump over the walls, or when i do cat leap ... that moment in the air... something wonderfull... (^__^)

Parkour it's my way of life...
