Parkour Malaysia Annual Year End Jam 2013 Video Highlights

Last 28th and 29th December 2013, we held our annual year end jam. We tried a new format by having a 2 day jam instead of just one. It was awesome and everyone had a good time. Here is the official video of the event.

Obstacles of the mind.

The much-anticipated Parkour Malaysia’s Year End Jam 2013 is just around the corner. Scheduled for 2 days: 28 and 29 December 2013, to be held in Putrajaya and a soon to be confirmed location, it is when practitioners from all over Malaysia come together for an awesome all-day training session. This is its 7th year, and boy has it grown.

However, year after year, a common observation is the self-restraint and inhibition some practitioners have around others, especially around the more experienced. You watch in awe as they skillfully move and once they stop and go on to another spot, only then would you try it too.

We have all experienced this, i’m sure. ‘What if i fall, or fail the jump’, ‘I’ll embarrass myself’, ‘I’m not good enough’ runs through your thoughts thus immobilizing you. Performance anxiety! The big truth is, these worries are all in your head!

Remember, among the core principles in Parkour is that it is non competitive. There is absolutely no reason to feel inadequate. Parkour is about challenging yourself. There is no need to prove yourself to others. It is about realizing that everybody has their unique strengths and weakness and each progresses in their own way. There should be no reason to be ashamed or frustrated if you fall or your progress appears slow compared to your comrades. What’s important is progressing and improving yourself.

So for the upcoming jam, or any training session, Be bold! Join in on the movement regardless of skill level. Utilize your skill set and improvise. Express your individuality in the movement. You might not have the best climb up or the furthest stride, but some creative routes, flow, and originality will definitely add to the jam experience.

Also, open up and seek knowledge. You know you have certain weaknesses, and you see that someone is good at it, you approach the person and ask the specifics. Someone might even ask you for tips on things you are good at. Simply asking ‘how to do [insert skill here]?’ might irritate some, so asking specifics like, ‘how do you have controlled run ups’ or ‘how to use legs in dead hang climb ups’ would be much appreciated. Personally, this is how most of my plateaus in certain movements were broken! Such as my run up for a cat pass, initiation of muscle up, and foot placement when landing an arm jump.

Basically, free yourself from others’ opinions. Parkour for yourself, not for others. Release your inhibitions and just move. Be bold to accept weaknesses and learn from others.

See you at the PKMY Year End Jam 2013!

 

Sabree.
