[edit] His rise

[edit] Handstands

When James was a teenager, he found himself often bored. One day, he saw on the Internet a parkour video. James' journey into the movement world had begun. He was very interested in hand balancing. Training hours a day, he developed great strength and balance. His first videos on Youtube showed a long haired teen with surreal handstands[1].

[edit] Parkour

That wasn't enough for the young athetle. Once he had developed enough strength, he moved onto parkour. He was in heaven. The possibilities of the discipline inspired him. Often, James would not sleep, thinking all night of the moves he wanted to accomplish the next day.

[edit] Tricking

Once he had mastered all parkour techniques, James wanted another challenge. That's when he learnt to land a side flip. From there, James learnt alot of flips and kicks, making him a tricker. With a background in handstands and parkour, James is now believed to be the tricker with the most potential in the world.

  • It is not always clear if he is going to the 'Snack Bar'or just to his kitchen, sometimes he goes elsewhere to fuel such as 'Burger King' or 'Taco Bell'

[edit] The reason they call me gal

No it's not because I take stupid unnecessary gals.

The first thing that was caused by me that changed the way I thought about everyday training is my first theory on gals, It's kinda hard to explain but I'll give it a shot.

If you jump you open yourself up to succession & failure. If you choose not to, you close the door on succession and open the door of security. Would you rather have the chance of success yet failure, or no chance of failure but walk away unsuccessful?

This is the basic idea, however you could say the basic Idea to "Chaos Theory" is anything can happen.

Basically I find it hard to put into words.

Tell me what you think.
