Sandro’s experience with parkour in America

Craig: So as I mentioned in the beginning, we just finished American Rendezvous, and one of the great things about podcasting is you get a chance to listen to, basically talk to people that you wouldn’t normally run into. So right off the top of my head, is there anything about American culture or ARDV or the way we train, or just that perspective, you have a completely different point of view from Switzerland. So what jumps out at you?

Sandro: Yeah, actually I was just really really surprised about the food. [00:25:00] We had so healthy food here, it was so crazy. When think of Americans, I think of the big burgers and the-

Craig: Ouch, ouch.

Sandro: Yeah, that’s just the picture we have, I think, in foreign countries maybe.

Craig: I think we exported that now and I apologize.

Sandro: It was so, Blake did such a good job by getting us to so diverse places. And we had so good food there, it was really amazing. And I was really surprised about that. [00:25:30] But actually except from that or what is more important, I think there’s not many difference about the culture of the people, of the parkour people. Because I think what connects us really is that we are standing over the borders of our country, or something like this. That we have kind of an open mindset to [00:26:00] every new participant or participant coming from another country as well. And that was really nice to see that there were so many open mindsets and so much tolerance in this American Rendezvous, I really liked that.

Meet the team

I love the educational aspect of Movers Mindset. Each podcast is an opportunity to learn about someone, how they think and how they move. I love learning about what each guests finds important and learning something new, whether its an idea or an approach, that I can apply to my own practice. The podcast has introduced me to many people and projects that have expanded my interests and understanding of movement.
