Now that that’s done with, I’m Jereme, nice to make your digital acquaintance. From as early as I can remember I’ve loved to move. I was infatuated with exploring my surroundings, emulating what I saw in martial arts movies and generally pretending to be a ninja. I used environmental exploration, challenge and entertainment(movies, video games) as a way to avoid being present in my less than ideal family life. Fast forward to 2003 and what turned into a wild goose chase to find a japanese restaurant with my mom and brother led to us finding my first dojo. I began my training in Jujitsu there. I was angry, introverted and had a lot of energy that I didn’t know what to do with.
Shortly after I was lucky enough to see the Yamakasi on Ripley’s Believe It or Not and my Parkour journey had started as well. The people, lessons, struggles, successes and personal growth that I’ve experienced from finding and immersing myself in these disciplines not only saved me as a kid but it gave me a couple life long goals to devote myself to.
- I want to master my body and mind, to see what I’m truly capable of as a human being, I want to be the best “me” that I can be.
- I want to leave this world a better place than when I arrived.
These goals have been my guiding principles since that lucky night in San Antonio. Since then I’ve taught thousands of people all over the US and internationally, I was lucky enough to be one of the first sponsored athletes with the Tribe when KSwiss was trying to make a freerunning shoe work, I got 2nd place(with Jared Davis) in style for one of the early NAPC events, I’ve been homeless, I’ve progressed, regressed and done a lot in between. My guiding principles are still the same though. I’m happy with where I am now, I now look forward to the mistakes, the learning, the connections and the journey that Parkour had got me started on. These days I still think about my very first goals but in addition to that I also want to share Parkour as I see it; a deep and beautiful discipline that can help you progress as a mover and as a human being. Along the way I want to learn, create, and help those around me. This website is how I see myself accomplishing my goals.
