Now that /asp/ has been resurrected as /xs/, it's time for a parkour thread. I've been getting back into parkour the last couple months and I have to say I missed it as much as I missed old /asp/. Where are you at with your training? How have you been working around the lockdown chains of Corona-chan? How much do you apply the utilitarian Hébertist mindset of being strong to be useful to your training routines?

I guess freerunners can post, too. Maybe even gymnasts and trickers if you don't get your own thread up and running.

Do you wear that throughout a normal day or do you switch into parkour specific clothes for training?
Normal day, I don't socialize much, I find a good deal on under armor tapered jogger pants for 10 dollars a piece, and bought 4 of them. I have some sweat pants just cause they're comfy.

Its really whatever is comfortable for you.
Jinx, Tau, Outlaw, Max and all the namefags, where u at?
Are there any worthwhile online parkour communities right now? I only used /asp/ and Zuckbook back in the day.
lmao nigga just get a card if you want to travel fast, do some jogging lol

I know of one school in like 100 miles of where I live but Ive never actually trained there. Id wager its pretty niche elsewhere in the states too.
According to Ramsay Dewey sanda is surprisingly rare in the PRC. If you're a promising athlete in middle school you'll maybe get the chance to train Sanda but otherwise it's hard to find. TKD, Judo, and BJJ are all way more popular than Sanda. I've never even heard of it outside China.
Hey niggers, I did the Xande sweep earlier then over the weekend I had a tournament and won with an americana

what are you guys up to and what has been cool for you lately
Full-contact karate is the most reliable type to study and most would have a hell of a time linking all the way back to Okinawa. But no one's going to think the average Goju-Ryu or Shito-Ryu guy is going to last five minutes with the average Kyokushin kaikan guy.
They do Sanda in Russia and in specialist places in the US, it's mainly China based but it's not quite as bad as SAMBO which is essentially just Russia

All things related to exploring and climbing abandoned and not-so-abandoned buildings.


Unless your idea of fun involves dying from internal bleeding in a pit underneath a caved in floor, always go with a partner. Provided you have one, urban exploration isn't actually all that dangerous. But make sure to take someone who isn't a pussy or a faggot, you know what I mean, alright?


FOOD AND WATER (ALL CAPS BECAUSE ITS ALSO REALLY IMPORTANT. Bring AT LEAST 1 liter of water, but not too much because water is damn heavy)

Flashlight (There are a fuck ton of dark places that show up in places that people don't tend to go that often, so bring one AND A BACKUP ONE TRUST ME ON THIS) Headlamps are also cool and allow you to have your hands free.

>What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of free climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses.

>What is the difference between bouldering and rock climbing?
bouldering requires no equipment to get started.
hold and footholds are way smaller which means it has different techniques, styles and body positions. it also means that you have to strategize and think!

what do you anons think about bouldering?

Thanks, I mean it's not really mind blowing for you more experienced anons, but I've felt that I'm stuck climbing 6a/b so doing it felt really good
Good job! I made it a 2020 goal in january to send V5 by year end but a shoulder injury and covid delayed that until January 2021. keep pushing!
Hampden is also my home gym. I hardly feel welcome because I'm not a black lesbian vegan but I love bouldering too much so I try to go 2-3 times a week
it's about self improvement. Everyone started somewhere. I wouldn't downplay your personal achievements.
I've seen little children, elderly and amputees climb. It's not about impressing others

But this is for the extreme sport part of road cycling
If you actually stop and think about it cycling of all types is a weirdly outlaw activity on-par with skateboarding in terms of hate from the general public, especially in America. I wish more people would embrace it.
I can hear the echo inside your head
Yeah. First thing the doctor did when I got to the hospital was poke my shoulder from the side pretty aggressively and I felt 0 pain. Then, he peeked at my collarbone and went "yep, your clavicle is broken" just by the swelling.
I'm glad the recovery has been really easy so far. My last fracture was my wrist, recovered without surgery, and it was obviously way worse

I do both and the only extreme thing about it is how extremely cringe are faggots that try to start a tribe war, or worse that actually feel superior to the other for practice one or the other.

I never got the point of sweeping. Skulling is much more efficient isn't it?
sculling is more technical and yes more efficient but it's way slower and more boring, there is no feeling like 8 people moving in synchronization propelling the boat forward while the coxswain is screaming at you to pull harder, it's unreal

im talking about actual, modern competitions though. lethwei is actually fought effectively barehanded for the most part, it is an accurate analogy.
this is the guy people claim is the greatest ever
So, you are training "for dah streetz"? lmao
no, i just don't find the minute details of certain leglock executions to be all that interesting. i've been planning on moving to mainly either judo or muay thai in the future anyways, as my jits improvement in the last few months has only been incremental. i want to work on my takedown ability, or at least make an attempt at striking.

No it isnt. If it were then they'd try to stab eachother and kill, and wouldnt wear those helms

I dont go full force, just touch them a bit, but it's still frowned upon. My point still stands that not accepting blows is faggotry.

"Hand and a half sword" was definitely a period term, Lovino has two plays for the "spada di una mano e meza" which translates to just that. They're clearly just longswords with parrying hooks, but bear in mind that weapons are drawn undersized in this source.

so, they're all scientologists and are backed by scientology firms/labels/money? I guess one just have to click enough links on their websites to come across the church of scientology, right? or is it even more subtile? I also learned by now, that these youtube skaters have literally nothing in common with the "normal" skateboard scene, were they "expelled" or something? there were always religious dudes in the scene but this seems like a new kind of level.

so i just got a board recently and i want to skate but i live in a remote area with shit pavement and i dont know where to practice privately any tips skatebros?
10 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>remote area
that's good, easier to learn how to skate when you're alone and comfortable instead of getting anxiety every time
>shit pavement
if the roads where you live are so shit that you can't properly skate as in you're vibrating like a mf get softer wheels

also you can literally practice anywhere all you need is like a 10m smooth runway
for shit pavement, buy some good bearings and soft cruiser wheels.
> plays tennis
> calls someone else a faggot
Look for any local industrial estates, usually after 16:30/17:00 no one is there and all the car parks are lit.
Downside is sometimes the ground isn't great but its usually private and no one will bother you.
If you're not gonna hit tranny don't get a beastly board and trucks. It's easier to do flat tricks on a narrower board and lower trucks. Also don't get park grade wheels, 99A will suffice. And don't get fat wheels for flatland.

Is sailplane racing an extreme sport?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
According to Wikipedia not is, but I've only ever heard them called gliders or glider planes.
what liscense do i need to fly one
what if i fly one without a liscense
I'm pretty sure you can start in a dual control glider after just a short lesson where they make sure you're not retarded.
In the US at least, you don't need anything to fly dual seat gliders if you have a CFIG with you.
Flying solo at the very least requires an endorsement from a CFIG, but that can take maybe a dozen hours or so if you have no experience with aviation. That said, you'll generally have limitations that would prevent you from doing any real cross country tasks, so racing solo would be out of the question until you at least get a real certification.
What class/plane are you flying anon?
