Chase – with Frank Mejia
Are you ready to take your tag game to the next level? Join Craig and Frank Mejia as they discuss World Chase Tag. Frank shares his thoughts on how the game has evolved and become a global phenomenon, and discusses the challenges and rewards of introducing adults to the game.
The Evolution of World Chase Tag
World Chase Tag has come a long way since it was first introduced to the Parkour and Ninja Warrior communities. Once simply a fun way to play tag, it has now become a professional sport with teams competing globally.
In a recent interview, Frank Mejia, a Chase tag athlete and coach, discusses the evolution of the sport and how it has changed since he first started playing.
According to Mejia, one of the biggest changes is the increase in competition. In the past, anyone could show up and participate in a Chase tag event, but now there are qualifications that must be met in order to compete at the professional level. This raises the bar for athletes and results in a higher level of skill and athleticism.
Another notable change is the divergence between playing regular tag and playing Chase tag. Mejia explains that when people hear the term “Chase tag,” they know what to expect in terms of format and rules, whereas regular tag is more informal and open-ended. As a result, Chase tag becomes more structured and competitive, while regular tag is still seen as a fun, casual activity.
Despite these changes, some people are still hesitant to take Chase tag seriously. Mejia mentions that kids tend to be more receptive to the idea of playing competitively, while adults may be more skeptical. However, once they understand the rules and see the athleticism involved, they tend to be more open to the idea.
Overall, the evolution of World Chase Tag has been fascinating to watch, according to Mejia. The sport is still in its infancy, but it is already seeing tremendous growth and development. As more teams and athletes enter the scene, it will be interesting to see where the sport goes from here.
— Why does Movers Mindset exist?
The purpose of Movers Mindset is to create and share great conversations with movement enthusiasts. Each conversation feeds my insatiable curiosity, but I share them to turn on a light for someone else, to inspire them, or to give them their next question.
In the podcast, I talk with movement enthusiasts to learn who they are, what they do, and why they do it. I’m interested in the nature and philosophy of movement and in exploring themes like independence, self-direction, and human excellence. My interests color each conversation and provide some structure to Movers Mindset. But since I like to take the scenic route, every conversation ends up going somewhere unique.
I really appreciate your time and attention, and I don’t take it for granted.
— I need your support
I want to share more of these amazing conversations, with amazing people, but I’m limited by the cost of the project. Please support what I’m doing. Every dollar really makes a difference.
Since 2017, I’ve spent countless hours and dollars keeping Movers Mindset going. Everything has remained free and ad-free and alive thanks to patronage from listeners like you. I have no staff, no assistant… it’s just one maniac with a mic and a keyboard. If this labor of love makes your life more livable in any way, please consider aiding said maniac’s sustenance…
— Thank you!
My personal mission is creating better conversations to spread understanding and compassion. And Movers Mindset is one of the things I do in service of my mission. Drop by constantine.name for my weekly email, my other podcasts, writing and more.
The Movers Mindset project grew from conversations I started having as part of my personal journey rediscovering movement. The project started late in 2015, and it was initially simply a web site that shared others’ writing. The project grew, and in 2017 I started the podcast. I’ve worked extremely hard, but none of this would have been possible without so much help from so many people.
