Interview With New York's Jesse Danger

Jesse Danger2

Jesse Danger has been a large part of the New York parkour community from the beginning. As the founder of The Movement Creative and parkour instuctor for over 8 years Jesse has done nothing but good for parkour's image. He's taught in schools and believes that "parkour’s true usefulness lies in the physical preparation and mental fortitude to see any challenge as an opportunity to better oneself." Not only has he taught in schools his professional portfolio is impressive as well.  

"Jesse has traveled and trained with people from around the world, and worked alongside with many of the country’s leading Parkour instructors. Jesse has performed professionally for organizations such as The New York Knicks, Nintendo, and Bulletrun..." - The Movement Creative

I had the chance to interview Jesse. He's a great guy, and always busy.

[APK] You say that you connected strongly with the founders’ “be strong, to be useful” philosophy.  Can you explain that a little more?

 [Jesse Danger] For many the exploration of their own movement seems to suffice as a reason to train. For me to have a deeper intrinsic purpose to training makes it feel much more worthwhile. I believe in the idea that we are not only training for ourselves but also for those around us.

 When you look at parkour you look at it as a way to help others. How often do you get to live out this practice? Do you think in today's world parkour has a place as a way to improve people's lives?
