This week I am so thankful to have the amazing Julie Angel on the podcast! Julie is an independent filmmaker, author (“Breaking the Jump”), and has perhaps the coolest PhD thesis of all time, “Cine Parkour: a cinematic and theoretical contribution to the practice of parkour”, AKA observing and talking to parkour athletes to better understand what they do and why they do it. Why didn’t I think of this when I was in school?!
We cover a lot of ground here, including:
- How she first got started in MovNat and Parkour
- What it takes for movement “ignition”
- Yamakasi: the beginnings of parkour
- The evolution of coaching in parkour
- Breaking the Jump
- See & Do
…and much much more!
Please check out, like, and follow Julie’s ongoing projects.
