What is your favorite activity at Urban Evolution
When did you join the Urban Evolution?
Hmm.. That’s a good question. I think May or June of 2012
What would you like to learn (goals) at UE in 2012?
There is so many things I want to learn right now. My mind is focused at the moment on Parkour. So here’s a list of some stuff that comes to mind:
• Increasing my jump height
• Increasing my hand strength for cat hangs and climbing rails
• Learn Kong Vault
• Perfect Dash Vault
• Rail Balancing
• Improve my tic-tacs
• (Probably not doable in 2012) Run up the Warped Wall successfully!
What advice would you give to new UE members?
Just go for it! Fear and doubt creep in quickly. So don’t give yourself time to talk yourself out of trying new stuff … particularly when you’re looking down from an eight foot platform.
