We at J. Benjamin Clothing Co. are proud to announce that we are now an official sponsor up-and-coming traceur of Parkour, Miguel Southee. Parkour as defined by Wikipedia is a philosophy, which includes the physical practice of traversing elements in both urban and rural settings. The goal is to move from one point to another as quickly and efficiently as possible. Parkour is typically associated with free running also. Miguel has been studying the art of Parkour for a year now.
Miguel, who has always had an addictive personality towards learning new things, picked up Parkour one day after watching it on MTV’s Ultimate Parkour Challenge and being inspired by the words of Daniel Ilabaca. After trying a few moves he decided he wanted to join a gym to learn some fundamental moves. After picking up these skills, it’s been a non-stop new passion that he doesn’t think he will be giving up anytime soon.
Recently, Miguel attended Red Bull’s Art of Motion show in Boston, MA where he actually got to participate with some of the bigger names in the game. By putting himself out there and showing them his skills has begun to open up some doors he never knew were there. Miguel, now sponsored by us and Oven Fresh Dreams will be traveling to California this winter to film with the well-known group, Team Tempest.
We wish Miguel continued success in following his dreams. Check out some videos of Miguel below to see him in action.
