Motion 2.0

Where movement meets the mind.

About Me

At the age of three I dislocated my elbow so badly that four separate doctors couldn’t repair it. While awaiting tests to figure out the problem, I fell off a riding mower in my backyard, landing on the same injured elbow.

I popped it right back into place and took my sling off a minute later.

Now 23 years old, I still show no signs of stopping. This blog is my way of trying to bring movement to the world, especially the disciplines of Parkour and Freerunning. Since discovering them in 2006 they have shaped and molded nearly every aspect of my life. I graduated college with a degree in Health & Exercise Science and am currently pursuing a masters in Human Movement. I co-founded Pinnacle Parkour, a company and community dedicated to spreading and teaching the Motion Arts. I am also an amateur philosopher, mixing the spiritual with the physical and taking many cues from Socrates, Taoism, Zen, and Bruce Lee.

I hope you will enjoy my writings and musings on all things movement related. My desire is to create a spark, just as the many people and ideas that came before now lit a fire in me. Live long, train hard, smile always.

  2. hi, ive been training fro quite a while now and giving free courses for a community health center. i saw the streetmovement park article and a couple videos on it and would like to make an official deposition to the government in my area (gatineau and ottawa -Canada-) although, i haven’t been able to find any helpfull plans to suggest, and as i am not an architect myself, can’t be of much help. i was hoping you could help me in finding plans for that particular streetmovement park. would we have any luck?

  3. Two years back I saw a paper that had been rushedly placed upon a library bulletin board. I talked about a group of people meeting for parkour outside the school bookstore. Without hesistation or preparation, I went there anxiously awaiting the turnout. After that day, Rowan wasn’t just a campus. I saw lines of movement I didn’t think probable or possible. Thanks for introducing me to parkour Gabe.
