My First Ever Descent | Revisited ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beautiful memories at this garage. I found it out near Dallas, Texas on google earth. I remember driving by to scout out this beautiful garage and knowing it was the first one I’d top out. Over the course of an entire weekend It took me a little while to hang from the top. And when I did my body was shaking so badly, and my hands were so sweaty. I had never seen a descent done in person. So most of my learning and techniques came from watching others on Instagram. After drilling the 2nd to 1st so many times I gave it a go. It was the most surreal moment letting go from the top. I had never felt a feeling quite like it. I didn’t know it that day, but It sparked an entirely different form of training for me from then on. Parkour became as fresh in my mind and soul as it ever has been. This is to many more memories to come 📝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••• #descent#parkour#freerunning#assassinscreed#everforward#parkourlife#parkourtraining#pk#awesome#storror#pkfr#ninjawarrior#backflip#farang#3run#calisthenics#sideflip#unitedbymotion#parkourworld#pkfrtv#parkourfamily#instagram#tempest#tempestfreerunning#movementculture#descents#alphalete#parkourfreerunning#parkourtraining

A Break Down | 7 story Descent ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So initially when we first got to the garage. (Chase bank Downtown Austin.) I wanted to test the crane tech because all of my previous practice had been two feet/bounce back to cat. The crane tech made a huge difference in catching the wall. Especially because the ledges were really thick. I drilled it numerous times from the 3rd to 2nd floor and finally took it up to the 4th story. Then after some time I decided to give it a try from the 5th story. At that moment I was stuck. I couldn’t go any higher. I walked to the top of the garage three times and couldn’t bring myself to do it. Until finally I could bring my mind to a place of ease. Trusting in my training. And knowing that I had worked on this Descent for months. From there I gave it a go and it all made sense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••• #descent#parkour#freerunning#assassinscreed#everforward#parkourlife#parkourtraining#pk#awesome#storror#pkfr#ninjawarrior#backflip#farang#3run#calisthenics#sideflip#unitedbymotion#parkourworld#pkfrtv#parkourfamily#instagram#tempest#tempestfreerunning#movementculture#descents#alphalete#parkourfreerunning#parkourtraining

Four Story Vibes ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I first started doing descents I would look all over google earth to find the perfect one. And although I visited many that just weren’t doable at the time. I always come back after a few months and try to make sense of them. This is one of those descents. It didn’t seem doable at first. I remember thinking it just couldn’t be done. But after some time I revisited it and made more sense of it. The landing space is very small and the drops are hefty. But overall you have a nice lip to hold your feet in the car hang and the rails are very grippy. It really was just calming the mind. Repetition and moving forward with this one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••• #descent#parkour#freerunning#assassinscreed#everforward#parkourlife#parkourtraining#pk#awesome#storror#pkfr#ninjawarrior#backflip#farang#3run#calisthenics#sideflip#unitedbymotion#parkourworld#pkfrtv#parkourfamily#instagram#tempest#tempestfreerunning#movementculture#descents#alphalete#parkourfreerunning#parkourtraining

5 Story Thoughts ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This Descent is definitely one of the most humbling I’ve encountered. Took a lot of mental prep. There isn’t too much space for your feet so it takes a bit more precision than normal. The rails are nice to grab though and the wall is just the right size for a cat hang. This one took a few months to commit to as I was training it here in there while I was visiting Austin, Texas. Going to back film it with was so much fun. She’s super patient and works a drone like no other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••• #descent#parkour#freerunning#assassinscreed#everforward#parkourlife#parkourtraining#pk#awesome#storror#pkfr#ninjawarrior#backflip#farang#3run#calisthenics#sideflip#unitedbymotion#parkourworld#pkfrtv#parkourfamily#instagram#tempest#tempestfreerunning#movementculture#descents#alphalete#parkourfreerunning#parkourtraining

Craziest Bail I’ve Ever Seen ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Literally the craziest bail I’ve ever witnessed in person. For those of you who’s don’t know, Tim is an absolute legend here in the Texas parkour community, and has inspired all of us over so many years. Watching him take this bail as calm, cooled, and controlled like he did is just another example of how skilled he is. And I’ll tell you what none of us were going to send this freakin sketchy kong gap either haha. @timmmburton you are a freakin legend bro. Love you man and can’t wait for you to be healed up so we can keep pushing ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••• #descent#parkour#freerunning#assassinscreed#everforward#parkourlife#parkourtraining#pk#awesome#storror#pkfr#ninjawarrior#backflip#farang#3run#calisthenics#sideflip#unitedbymotion#parkourworld#pkfrtv#parkourfamily#instagram#tempest#tempestfreerunning#movementculture#descents#alphalete#parkourfreerunning#parkourtraining

7 Story Descent | Highest I’ve Ever Done ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is definitely the hardest, highest, and most mentally challenging descent I’ve ever done. The walls were so thick to grab. It took me about an hour to warm up to it and I kept backing down from it. I hung from the top and it was absolutely terrifying. My hands had never been so sweaty. But after calming myself and drilling the lower stories I ended up giving it a go. Ive been working on this one for a little over 7 months so I’m super happy to tick it off. Also, a thank you to @jarrodluty2897 and @thedanadame for being so patient with me. 🤙🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •••••••••••••• #descent#parkour#freerunning#assassinscreed#everforward#parkourlife#parkourtraining#pk#awesome#storror#pkfr#ninjawarrior#backflip#farang#3run#calisthenics#sideflip#unitedbymotion#parkourworld#pkfrtv#parkourfamily#instagram#tempest#tempestfreerunning#movementculture#descents#alphalete#parkourfreerunning#parkourtraining

The Alchemist ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A book that definitely made me believe in myself when I felt I had nothing. A beautiful quote from that book I’ve been reminded of recently is “People Are Capable At Anytime In Their Lives, Of Doing What They Dream Of” I think that we all have something that we truly want to do. And we’ll make a thousand excuses on why we can’t get there instead of just gettin there. Comment below what your dreams are. Small or big it doesn’t matter.

Descent Progress ↓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was out in Austin a couple of weeks ago and stumbled upon this descent. I had to try it. It was a little tricky because the practice for the actual descent started on the third story. The ledges were thin which makes nicely for the cat drop regrab. But a little scary for the landings. I was happy to work up to it that day. And it was also the first one I ever filmed with a drone! I also left my shirt to dry sweat at the top of the garage. - 👕 @everforward 👖 @everforward 👟 @vans 📸 @jarrodluty2897 __________________________________________________ . . . #parkour#freerunning#descent#desents
