Who is Ismael Oquendo?

In every community, there’s someone who’s been training for so long that they’ve seen a hundred waves of newcomers. In every community, there’s someone who takes on students and lifts them up. There’s someone who stays behind to keep teaching and helping and growing. There’s someone who pushes for the perfection of the simple. Who explores the essential movements and understands them in a much deeper way. There is someone for whom parkour really is a way of life.

That’s who Ismael Oquendo is. And if you’ve never heard of him, now you will.
