A short documentation of my parkour, filmed through a single days solo training in Reading, late December '07. I've included the mistakes (1:23, 1:40, 2:25); one point I really wanted to demonstrate is how well parkour conditions oneself to deal with faults and problems in our movement - whether this be through repetition and practice to improve upon something, or the overall level of competence we gain so as to be able to control our movement even if something does go wrong. I like to think it conditions us to deal with problems outside of parkour in a similar way too.
I see this as somewhat of a reference for what the average traceurs solo training might look like, though obviously I'll only ever experience my own.
