A Foreshadowing.

April 2, 2014 in Business, Take Flight by Adam Dunlap

We are extremely excited and yet feeling a bit melancholy to be the first to break some huge news. This story has been under wraps for about two months, but we’ve finally been given permission to disclose some detail. Take Flight founder and owner Adam Dunlap has recently closed a deal to sell Take Flight to yet-to-be disclosed new ownership for $14.1 million dollars.

We at Take Flight were shocked to hear the news when Adam called a meeting and announced it. We still aren’t allowed to say much, so we sat down with Adam for an extensive interview about the sale, the future of the brand, and his plans after Take Flight.

_______________________________

The first question we have to ask is how did the sale come about?

Adam: It was just one of things that kind of just happened. They approached me about 6 months ago and were interested in purchasing the company. We talked and finally reached a deal.

Were you surprised? Excited? Thrilled?!

Adam: Hmmm kind of. I always knew this would happen. I’ve been receiving offers for a long time from people to buy the brand. I’ve always refused because I felt the people were only interested in the money, and that’s not what I wanted for Take Flight. But finally the right people came along and the circumstances were right. It wasn’t completely out of the blue. We talked a lot and finally worked something out. I’m excited but a bit sad as well because it’s hard to move on from something you love. But I’ll be fine :-)

Poised and ready for the next step.

Who are the new owners?

Adam: Lol I can’t tell you! You’ll find out soon enough. I think everyone will be really happy with the choice :-) They are a super well known and established international brand. They are going to take good care of the Flight Man and do the Parkour community proud.

Parkour Q&A: How do I motivate myself to train?

March 24, 2014 in Parkour by Adam Dunlap

Question

Do you ever find it hard to continue motivating yourself?

Question by Jason Budd

Answer

Yes. But it’s easier when you follow your passions.

David Belle never had to motivate himself to do Parkour. He used to wake up at 7am every day and go outside and trace until the night. Even on weekends! That’s because he was authentically passionate about Parkour. When you have a passion in life, a true passion, it wells from inside you, and the motivation is always there.

Ask yourself this: are there things in my life that I don’t have to motivate myself to do? Maybe go to the movies. Play video games. Go to Disneyland. Make out with your girlfriend? There you go – a few examples that show things in your life that you don’t need motivation to do. Point is, motivation is always there when you truly love something.

All that said, motivating yourself to do something isn’t always as easy as following your passions. That’s because life is often filled with a lot of other things – barriers, tasks, hardships. You’re balancing finances, and homework, family, sleep, responsibilities, uncertainties, and many other things. So when you come across something you “want / feel-you-need to do” (like let’s say Parkour / training), but you find that you “don’t really want to do it that much,” then there are a few tricks I’ve found to help get myself motivated and in the right mindset to do it.

Parkour Q&A – What if I can’t find a good Parkour spot?

March 19, 2014 in Parkour by Adam Dunlap

Question

If you were in my position what would you do? I’m a beginner in training Parkour and the area where I live is very open and wide and I have a hard time finding a good spot to actually train at. And the spots I do find are usually schools, so I always end up getting kicked out and because of this I haven’t been training as much as I used to. If you could help me to figure out what to do that’d be great.

Why the Take Flight 1.0 Has Four Stripes

February 28, 2014 in Parkour, Take Flight by Adam Dunlap

The Take Flight 1.0 has released with a huge amount of love and support from the worldwide Parkour community. But since the shoe’s New Year’s launch on January 1st, the question has been circling – why the heck does the Take Flight 1.0 have four stripes? The answer is simple: Bruce Lee. Here is the story behind it.

The first-final rendition of the Take Flight 1.0 (actual rendition #40 or so), had stripes on the side. I loved this look from the get-go, so when we reached this point I specifically designed the shoe to have 7 stripes. The number 7 is a prominent number in many religions and philosophies, and it is often seen as the perfect number. We designed the Take Flight 1.0 to be perfect, so the symbolism of 7 embedded into the shoe was ideal and exactly what I wanted.

Although the 7 stripes were cool, after a few weeks of working with it we realized the design didn’t quite translate to production. When we took the shoe to prototyping there just wasn’t enough room for 7 stripes on the side! Plus this design had other issues. We didn’t know quite what to do, so the number of stripes was cut down to 5 and then 3, and that was where it sat for a while – in limbo.

Here is a never-before released image of that first-final Take Flight 1.0 design. Shown here, it has 6 stripes instead of 7 which is what you get when you collab with a graphic artists and you choose not to be a dictator about details that won’t make it to production anyway.

take_flight_1_0_parkour_shoe_design_rough_draft

This shoe looks cool, but it has issues. Flexibility and materials that looked like this would never allow this to be a good Parkour shoe. You’d have creases in it in 2 hours in that would destroy the look, the plastic heal counter at the back is too rigid, plus there is virtually no ventilation. Those are just a few of the problems with this design. The stripes was another. I wanted 7 stripes, but even here we were crammed for space! Something had to go.

Adam Thoughts #31. (Sadhguru.org +)

February 26, 2014 in Adam Thoughts, Thinking Outside the Box by Adam Dunlap

All thoughts are original unless noted otherwise :-)

[A couple months ago I subscribed to Sadhguru.com. Now they send me a “Mystic Quote” from Sadhguru each and every morning. I don’t agree with everything Sadhguru says, but I really like his perspective. From the last two months, here are the quotes I've been sent that I agree with and think are worth sharing. As usual I’ve included some of my own thoughts since the last time I published.]

______________________

“Do not try to be the best. Just do your best.” -Sadhguru

“Marriage is not about compatibility, companionship, or extracting happiness. It is an opportunity to achieve a union that will open up a greater possibility.” -Sadhguru

I promise to love you forever. I don’t promise to always be attracted to you, or want to live, or spend time or sleep with you. That second part is up to you.

If you want to be an adviser, cool, I’ll advise. If you want me to lead then we do it my way.
