Parkour and Open Gym

Last night, I went to an open gym session at a local gymnastics gym. Team TRICKset gets together there to practice parkour, tumbling and to generally have a good time. I started to learn monkey jumps, kongs and cashes. I also learned to do a passable palm spin. This was probably the coolest thing I learned last night. When I see it executed in videos, it looks great and it turns out that it is mostly a mental move. It isn’t that hard to execute as long as you commit to it but a moment’s hesitation and it is all over but the fall.
