– Briefly introduce yourself (where do you come from, how long have you been training and what do you do in your life)?

Hello, hello, I am from Novi Sad (Serbia). I have been training for seven years. In that period I count the time through which I initially built a clearer picture of parkour. I do some photography, design, and last but not least, the performing arts as Straja said, that is, I do fire performances, I walk on stilts, I do some juggling…

– How did you come up with the idea to start training parkour and how did that affect you?

At first, I saw a video on TV called “Evolution” (practically freerun video), and I was attracted by some attractive jumps. I started inquiring about the name of the discipline and whether there is someone in my town who trains. Since I did not ran into those people surfing the internet, I started going to the gymnastics hall with my friend (Mirko), where we self-taught began practising “tricking”. One period of time I was devoted to only tricks and elements of gymnastics, and practically, to what today falls under the term “Free-Running”, then later I have met two guys (Boris and Marko), who introduced the term “parkour” to me, and connected me with Boki. I sent Boki some footage of Mirko and me (in the introduction it was written something like: Urban Crew Parkour team), asked him for his opinion, so he can explain the definition of parkour to me and to see his personal view. From that moment I began to build a picture of parkour through exploration, learning, using the then active “Parkour Srbija” forum, and slowly corrected my training and thinking in the direction of how I train and think today. How did that affect me? At first, I felt so full of myself, and I thought I knew a lot more than I actually knew in that area.

– What is parkour for you and why do you train it?

For me parkour is a point that dances between discipline and leisure. A road at which I do not have to move fast so I can learn quickly. A school where I write my own grades by myself, without a desire and possibility to cheat. A place where I can be alone even though I’m with someone, as well as to be with someone when I’m alone. I train parkour because I feel good when I have goals that I can achieve only with the support of my whole being. I like to challenge my creativity. I feel that it gradually makes me entirely better, stronger, more persistent… I train because through fun and my own will, I prepare myself for parts of life which are not fun and do not happen willingly.

– How did dealing with performing arts influenced your attitude about parkour?

From the physical point of view, I have developed coordination. I have developed a strong ego too, but more importantly, how to control it. Situations where you have to choose one of many options in a split second have contributed a lot to my determination, and determination can sometimes be more important in a given moment than all of the skills you possess. Through performing arts I gained knowledge that I would also gain trough trainings and the world of parkour, but, I presume, later. This is some kind of a shortcut. I found the spirit of parkour in performers, even though they have never practiced parkour, and to finally answer your question, thereby I learned, or rather, I ascertained that I can train parkour through other things too, the same way that parkour trains me for more than just “jumping over buildings”.

– Do you think that within our organization there are clans, and smaller groups of people who stand out from others, and who think they have “drank all the cleverness of the world”?

Within our organization no, but in general on Serbian parkour scene there are such people. I can think of one right now, and if I say his name, I`ll have to do some push-ups. And I do not want to do push-ups, I just ate. There are groups that are separated and that have drank “all the cleverness of the world” everywhere. I was at one moment a dangerous drinker of cleverness, and sometimes in some situations I can still be like that, though, a lot rarer. It all comes into place.

– How do you see Parkour Srbija?

I see Parkour Srbija as a funnel which directs people from different regions, in order to more easily enter the mega giant bottle of parkour. The funnel is yellow, and I went through it by doing rolls.

– What is your opinion about the parkour scene in Serbia?

I think that scene has a good foundation that will greatly assist future and current traceurs to build a more correct/proper concept of parkour, and themselves as individuals within the parkour. At least 40% of the people I met and who train have the spirit I like, and I think that they are on a positive way to be happy with themselves and with what they are doing. 40% is a good number.

– Rate the quality of training the traceurs in Serbia have, globaly speaking, with the grade of 1 – 10?

I can not decide between 7 and 8 let it be 7,73.

– What are your current goals in training, ie. what do you want to achieve in, say, a year?

I do not have a goal. In Photography I have a goal, in the performing arts I also have a goal… Parkour is a different world.

– What do you currently concentrate on the most in your training?

Discovering new things, paths, movements, motions…

– How does your “parkour” training look like and how many times a week do you train?

As I traveled during the summer, I trained almost every day. Now, the training intensity dropped drastically, mostly due to work, so I can not correctly tell you that information, but if I would to pull a mean value, I think it will come down to twice a week. Over the years of practicing parkour, I constantly have had an increase and decrease of NT/W (number of trainings per week :P). Sometimes willingly, sometimes not, but I always progress faster after such breaks, and the only thing that hinders me is physical fitness, which I quickly regain. Body and mind deserve a rest from time to time. My training… I will bring the most attention to the fact that I always try to find new and interesting things that I could do on trainings. Some require more power, some movement… It varies from location to location, from day to day, and the mood. As for the warm-up, sometimes I do it “the school way”, and sometimes I warm-up through moving slowly, depending on how I feel.

– How many times a week do you do strength training?

That kind of “strength training” can be said that I do through regular trainings when I feel the need for it, but I never strictly do strength training. When I’m at home, sometimes I jump out of my bed to do a series of variable push-ups, and this is perhaps the closest to what you are probably thinking of.

– Do you think that the parkour schools are helpful in learning the basics of parkour? If so, how should training be organized and in what kind of environment?

I will compose my personal view of the schools for the start like this: I’m not for or against parkour schools. Personally, I think that a person will build himself/herself up as a character in parkour better if he/she voluntarily reach for some answers and tries to get to them, rather than have them served on a plate. Also, I don`t like the word “school”. It suggests a compulsion and obligation, which parkour certainly is not. What I support is a concept of active advertising of trainings so that new people can come and learn more about parkour and the training itself. Viva la facebook. Both begginers and experienced traceurs can and should from time to time be in a “coach” position, or the one who helps others to learn something, but I believe that we should not build such a picture of a person that you can address with as a “parkour coach”. One of the important things for me which I must emphasize is, if I had to make a decision, I would not even bring into consideration gym training, especially not for begginers. Nobody can teach you to respect the potential of your body and to understand your fear better than the concrete wall that is not forgiving. Basically, this issue is still young here, and it remains to be seen in what direction it will take the name of “parkour”.

– Because we know and see that you are a great photographer, does it happen to you that during training you suddenly get an inspiration for photography, does it interfere with your training and what do you generally think about those touch and go/train a bit photograph a bit situations, do you lose your concept of training there?

Excellent question. No, it does not disturb my training in any way. I love multitasking. I like doing more things at once, and to do them good. That`s just a part of my training because I love doing that, and I like to give people a part of pleasure that I experience (no, Pero, I still do not have time to edit a video of the whole summer). Sometimes I might come to training and photograph/film all the time, and sometimes I go out with the idea to photograph/film but then I train all the time. It never bothers me if by accident one of those things I love prevails. I do what I love and what I want at the given moment. There is not much philosophy there.

– And finally, what kind of message would you send (what will you order) to traceurs in Serbia?

I will order everyone a glass of Medovača (honey rakia)! For the beginning of the end, I will first point out a message to the ones that are new to the world of parkour: I want you to build your own vision of parkour, and other people and their opinions use as guidelines. Be yourself. And for all the traceurs, Serbian, Croatian, English, Macedonian, Swiss, American, Bosnian, French … and those worldwide: Let your creativity take you. Do not bring your training down to movement, endurance, strength… Bring it down to something that is yours, that fulfills you. It doesn`t even have to be called parkour.
