So, here it is – my last post. What have I learned during these 14 weeks? Actually, I think that I have learned a lot of new things, and for sure they will be helpful in my future. To start with, I spent a lot of time shooting videos, and it was very fun. Also, I practiced editing a lot, while creating short videos for the blog. Interviewing skills are worth mentioning too. In addition, I have never used twitter and other social media sites a lot, but during the last 14 weeks I had a chance to learn how to work with this kind of sites. Social media may seem not very important, but actually, it is important, because these sites can be very helpful and useful for journalists. So, I have learned a lot while working with this blog, but what have you learned while reading it?
So, the first post was about the blog and it’s purpose. I wanted to answer the following question: “Is there parkour in Bulgaria?” But a few weeks later I changed it a little bit and made it more local – “Is there parkour in AUBG?” And the answer is “Yes,” but off course there are not many people interested in parkour here. The second post was about me, and how and why I started doing parkour. From the next post I started telling you about parkour, so in the third and fourth one I explained what parkour is and what “pure” parkour is. The fifth one was about my first training for the last year and about one AUBG traceur – Fahed El Zaher. The 6th post was about “BBC 5 shot rule” that we have learned about at the lesson. In the 7th post I told you about extreme sportsman’s perception on the parkour. The post after that was about history of parkour. Next one was midterm’s post. I told you about latest freerunning competitions in Santorini there. 10th post was similar to this one – review of everything written in the blog. In the post after that one, I told you about freerunning – a very close to parkour activity. The post number 12 was about what we learned in the class – storify.com and thinglink.com – sites that can help you to tell your story. In the 13th post I compared parkour and freerunning. In the 14th one I told that everybody can learn to do parkour, despite age, gender, and fitness. So, you have learned a lot about parkour.
Also, in this post I would like to tell you about Konstantinos Giouzakov – freshmen at AUBG. I found out that he is interested in parkour, and he has even started doing it, so I was very interested in interviewing him.
“For the first time, I saw parkour on the tv. Basically, Jackie Chan movies. The way he was surpassing obstacles, jumping from walls to walls, while performing some stunts simultaneously, made me more than fired up to begin doing the same. However, it was not before I watched another movie, Yamakasi, that I became a fan of Parkour.”
That is what he told me when I asked him how did he become interested in parkour. Also, he told:
“In Greece, freerunning made it’s debute pretty recently. I use to practice it for few months with friends of mine, back in my hometwon. Basically, we were climbing on different building using pipes and other extreme ways.”
Every ending is always a new beginning!
