Mahsa Rezaie - Female Parkour Spotlight

February 28, 2018

 

Mahsa Rezaie is one of the very few girls that I saw pushing jumps early on in my training. Equal parts flowy and powerful, her videos are full of clean parkour runs where it's evident that she's pushing her distance. Additionally in the face of great adversity, she's a fighter!

How has parkour affected you?

I know myself better with Parkour and I could live more daring. I'd better say Parkour changed my life.

 

What do you do for a living?

At the same time, I do not have a specific source of income, but sometimes computer work (because I was a computer student) and sometimes coaching
But not coach of Parkour, Because Parkour has no income in Iran
i'm coach of the fitness.

 

Do you have any other skills/passions besides parkour? If so, what are they?

all my passions are to sport and my goal is to take part in the American Ninja.
But I also like motion graphic for having the expertise and income.

 

 

How do you manage fear when going for something scary?

In my opinion, the best way to practice the fight against fear in parkour is to do parkour techniques on the ground and to do best jump the first time (not marking).

 

Do you have any obstacles that interfere with your training? If so, how do you deal?

Yes, I'm the most time-day at work (And for now I do not receive any money )
And early on, my mother and dad were dissatisfied with parkour, but now they have no problem.

 

What piece of advice would you give to someone starting out?

In my opinion, being patient is the best advice.
Life is always up and down and in order to succeed in anything, we should not stop at the down, and this is true in Parkour.

 

Who is a woman that inspires you and why? (in or out of parkour/freerunning)

Lynn have strength and skill that is commendable to me
and Lynn has been trained parkour less than me but she is perfect.

 

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL MESSAGE FROM MAHSA:

I would like to say that going to other countries and practicing parkour with [other athletes] is one of my desires, but I can't have a visa for most of the countries because I'm Iranian (we are sanctions).
And also the costs to us is very expensive (because of the cheap value of our country due to sanctions).

Also, our country also does not care about us. We don't have a gym for Parkour in Iran, and even for Freerunning. Men can not come to the women's club and teach us, and there isn't female coach in Freerunning , and this situation is upsetting me.
