The Tale of a Two-Year-Old Traceur (And What You Can Learn From Him)

I passed my two year anniversary of doing parkour a few weeks ago! Watch my celebration video, then read on for a look at how I got to where I am today.

Once upon a time, there was a short, bespectacled, teenage, MMORPG addicted, nerdy, skinny-flabby internet potato. One afternoon, while engaging in the fine art of stalking his Facebook friends, he came upon a status talking about a friend’s day of doing parkour. Curious, he looked up parkour and found Ryan Doyle, Daniel Ilabaca, and the 3Run crew. Flabbergasted and intrigued at these awe-inspiring movements, he began inquiring about how to get started doing parkour.

From that day on, Alan’s world changed. Continue Reading →

How To Become Flexible: A Practical Guide

Becoming Bendy

Flexibility is one of the most underrated physical abilities a traceur can have. There are plenty of videos focusing on a traceur’s upper body strength or ability to do flips, but rare indeed is the video that shows a practitioner doing splits, or even deep stretching.

This doesn’t make sense. As traceurs, aren’t we always trying to push our limits – and isn’t flexibility a way to do that? A useful and impressive way, at that. So why not develop it? Every traceur should be mobile. Even powerlifters and bodybuilders can benefit from it. With that in mind, how does one go about becoming bendy? Continue Reading →

Mirror’s Edge Movie?

Mirror's Edge

Late last night, Parkour Generations posted that the Mirror’s Edge will soon be made into a movie. This is exciting news, although I’m a little skeptical of whether it’ll actually happen, considering that Mirror’s Edge 2 was discussed several months ago, and nothing has yet come of it yet. It’s even more sketchy considering that there are no other details provided, such as the studio producing it, scriptwriters, possible directors, etc. Granted, this is very early in the process, so all that uncertainly is unsurprising. Still, since PKGEN was involved in making the original Mirror’s Edge game, they would likely been contacted for help with the movie. Anyway, I’m hoping for the best. Who would play Faith, though?

Wouldn’t it be cool if Mirror’s Edge 2 and Mirror’s Edge the movie were released at the same time, with concurrent story lines? With one preceding the other, or the game following the plot of the movie?
