I completely agree with your assessment of gymnastics, and of parkour. I have yet to experience a sport-like activity that is so fun and natural. Take the tylenol, stretch lots, have fun.
haha, it's cool man; I wouldn't have taken it the wrong way. Really I didn't expect to learn that particular move for a while. it's got me curious about the "palm spin" now though :)
I went last night and it was a blast. It was mostly the experienced guys doing advanced free-running stuff and dropping people info cards on the group. It was pretty cool seeing all the crazy **** they could do off vaults and ledges.
I got to practice some real application. Mainly the Kong Vault, and Catch-Vault. I also learned the Double-Kong... which I was more than a little nervous about trying, but when I did it felt pretty natural. After seeing them do the "flag" I had to try it, and I was surprised i could do it for a couple seconds. Learned some other cool stuff too, and I got to play with some of the stuff I've always been good at but haven't done in forever like handsprings and dive rolls.
FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.
