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 H├ębertist 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.

You can practice a fair amount at home. Even on just a floor you can practice a couple of different vaults, precision jumps, ukemi/breakfalls/rolls, and so forth. However, you'll have to train on more advanced obstacles if you want to progress and you'll have to train in public if you want to learn to apply the practical side of parkour. A lot of people get self conscious training in public alone but it's just one more obstacle you have to train to overcome. That's what parkour is about, after all: overcoming obstacles both physical and mental.

bmx is a little easier. you still need balls but it's halfway to a scooter. it's also hated because it's just bigger but in reality if you are at a park that allows bmx you should deal with it. Plenty of parks are just for skateboarding and the ones that allow bmx are often better for bmx. They can keep their speed over rougher surface.

WS Base jumper here.

It's a lot of fun. Like crazy mind blowing fun. The big issue with it is that you have to deal with wingsuit base jumpers. They tend to be insufferable ego driven faggots. They are usually more concerned with pushing the limits of how many cameras they can strap to their body than actually surviving. It would be a great sport if it wasn't for all the dress wearing faggots.

This is a problem but there is also a contingency of fat and weak people who are trying to bring positivity acceptance culture to the gym and claim shit like calorie restriction is self harm and that you don't have to squat to full depth if your body says not to, etc. At the core of this is an odd resentment to standards. That you can fail to measure up or succeed is a binary they want to do away with. "Anyway you want to work out is valid" "fat people can be exactly as healthy as skinny people", etc. These types of people aren't actually interested in self improvement.

I think it's normal to find this annoying if you're someone who actually tries at the gym but at the same time you can just ignore it. Put your headphones on and lift your weights. You tend to only see this rhetoric online so just don't look at it.

Also, thanks to the existence of places like Germany, there are some things that can be done to mod them, albeit not quite as much as a TM-spec GBBP, if you want to take it to games - they apparently hold up better in the cold, too

Lol I had almost forgotten that place already. I left a few weeks after that post.
I sparred with the coach once while in there. I'd say he had just a slight upper hand during our match but, first, I'm a kickboxer and kicks were my strong subject, I had never fought without it before; second he had a huge reach advantage, he's got 80 pounds on me too; third, it was after the class, so I was pretty tired while he had just stood there the whole class.
I know for a fact I could beat him now, even with the weight difference.
And something I didn't mention on my post because I noticed later: I threw like a thousand lead hooks in the time I was there and he would say it was great. A little after I quit the place I found out I was doing it completely wrong.

When was the last time you really threw down?

I fought all the time until I was 12. It was becoming a problem, but then puberty hit me really hard, and my self-confidence plummeted. I went through all of high school suffering from severe depression, and I've never fully recovered. My last fight was probably somewhere around 13 or 14. I've come close to fighting in the street with a bunch of drunkards a couple of times, but it never happened. Now I'm somewhat wishing the opportunity presents itself soon enough

>Or is there some stylistic difference that goes with the difference in romanization?

Not that I am aware of, but of all the obscure kung fu systems it seems to be the hardest to find reliable information about. It's almost universally taught incorrectly and extravagantly mcdojo'd. 99.9% of it's true utility is compressed into a set of movements that take about half an hour to teach, so instructors have incentive to make up a bunch of nonsense to retain students.

He reinvented the pedagogy and added pholosophical guidelines. Thats not theft thats dorect succession.

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

READ THIS FIRST!!

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?

ESSENTIAL GEAR:
PROPER CLOTHES (THIS IS FIRST AND IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BY FAR! YES MORE IMPORTANT THAN FOOD AND WATER. WHY? YOU CAN'T DRINK WATER IF YOU'RE ALREADY FROZEN TO DEATH OR PASSED OUT FROM HEAT STROKE. BRING APPROPRIATE WEAR FOR THE WEATHER)

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.

Money - cash for emergencies.
