Monthly Archives: August 2010

So it’s august and we’ve had a good summer.   Lots of goals have been achieved by the club:  cat pass to precision, some huge kongs, balance training, muscle ups, and lache maneuvers.  While still perfecting these and other moves, Darkburg as a club has grown in its prowess.   The future is always coming and we hope to continue to grow, especially in our numbers.   Keep an eye out for some Darkburg sponsored seminars and events hopefully coming by summer 2011.

I also wanted to mention that Darkburg is introducing yoga to the regular training schedule.   My wife is a long time yoga practitioner who is beginning to look into teaching.   Darkburg has invited her to open their sunday training sessions with ten to fifteen minutes of yoga designed to open our joints and warm us up for training.   I myself believe in yoga and routinely practice yoga postures that restore, energize, and open up the joints, for instance the hip and groin area.    While we all stretch and warm up before training, having someone guide us through, correcting posture and aiding in things like breath control can only improve our efforts in this area.   Also, let’s not forget that yoga is the ultimate at core strengthening.   While we’re not focusing our yoga on the core strengthening, it will be an added bonus to the practice.   I could go on and on about the benefits of regular yoga practice with a “mindful teacher” but I only at this time wanted to let you all know about Darkburg and how our year has been and the things we’ve been doing.

Finally I wanted to thank our peers in Lancaster and Allentown for a great time in Lancaster.   The jam was our first and we enjoyed it immensely.   We feel like the connection’s made, and has solidified us in central PA as a known club.   Darkburg has effectively put its flag in the sand, we are here.   And if you practice parkour or freerunning in the Harrisburg area and you don’t know us….. well we suggest finding us….. the invite to join us is wide open and we encourage it.   Thanks again to guys and gals who made the jam so much fun and we hope to sponsor one in Harrisburg soon.
