“You’re always at a starting point.”
What does Parkour have in common with Skateboarding? How can Parkour turn your world into a personal playground?
This is a conversation with Parkour athlete, Co-Founder of the So-Cal based Parkour Gym “Freedom in Motion”, and long time friend Nathan Rogers. “Freedom in Motion” is a Parkour Gym that turns their members worlds into a “personal playground”, and Nathan and I go deep into what a personal playground means to the Parkour athlete. Topics include the difference between aesthetic and efficient Parkour, how walking is considered Parkour, the art of “Ukemi”, and a technique to handle self-doubt that surprised me. The movement arts fascinate the crap out of me. I had a blast recording this, and there’s a lot of gems in here that I found valuable, and I hope you find valuable as well.
