In addition to the informational threads, we will be posting Assassin-specific announcements here (e.g. mini-challenge missions, important threads, etc.) and by following this thread you will be notified when we post. Please note: These announcements cannot be found anywhere else on the forum.  The only way to stay updated on Assassin-specific happenings is to follow this thread.

 

THE GUILD

The Assassins' Guild has gone through a bit of a metamorphosis over the last several challenges.  While we do count several traceurs among our ranks, the majority of Assassins are not focused on parkour but other disciplines.  We do encourage, however, a mindset that we think we share with free runners - Assassins love movement and fluidity, they thrive off of competition and cooperation equally, they prize efficiency, but most of all they are determined to master their own bodyweight.

 

We train anywhere, with anything, and in a myriad of ways.  The world is our playground.

 

COMMON TRAINING STYLES / THEMES

  • Calisthenics / Bodyweight (Al Kavadlo, Mike Fitch, BarStarzz)
  • Gymnastics (Gold Medal Bodies, Overcoming Gravity, Building the Gymnastic Body)
  • Hand-balancing
  • Movement / Flexibility / Mobility (Ido Portal, Animal Flow, Prasara, Mobility WOD)
  • Rock Climbing / Bouldering
  • "Odd" Object Lifting / Swinging (Kettlebells / Clubbells / Shovelglove / Sandbags / Challenge Ropes)
  • Wearing Black
  • Circus Arts (Pole, Trapeze, Contortion, Silks, Rope)
  • Parkour
  • Dance

COMMON CHALLENGE GOALS:

  • Body Recomposition (lose weight, gain weight)
  • Increase Reps (pull-ups, push-ups, pistol squats)
  • Increase Hold Times (handstand, frog/crow stand, levers)
  • Wear More Black
  • Workout / Train / Climb X Times per Week
  • Increase Flexibility / Mobility

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How do I join the Assassins' Guild?
    When you signup for a six-week challenge, declare yourself an Assassin and then post your thread in our guild.  That's it!
     
  • Do I have to be lean/in shape to be an Assassin?
    No.  While extra bodyweight does make our type of training more difficult, Assassins come in all shapes and sizes and anyone is welcome to don the black.
     
  • How advanced in my training do I have to be to join?
    Assassin skill levels range from rank beginners to advanced trainees.
     
  • Can I still earn attribute points with the new challenge setup?
    Most definitely!  Points remain the same.

We're always searching for new ambassadors and journalists to help the GLs and the existing team of journalists and ambassadors. Want to help out? Think that could be a fun job for you? 

 

Journalists:

Our journalists are the ones in charge of the 'Most wanted Assassins' list. After every week, they report back on the threads they follow, highlight achievements and help pick those that deserve to be on the list most. 

If you wish to help out, please send a message to me (Apfelstrudi) and I'll set you up/answer your questions!

 

Ambassadors:

Ambassadors are extremely important to the guild because they take care of the Level 1 Rebels. They check on threads of those that would fit into our guild, give advice, cheer on and be a presence in their thread to help them pull through the first challenge and come to the assassins later! (Of course we'll still be nice should they choose other guilds... but we can always be there to convince them ;) ). They invite them over to our forums to look at the assassins den, the phonebook and perhaps even threads of assassins with similar goals they have.

If you wish to help out or have questions about ambassador work, please send a message to Nuala! 

 

 

Thank you for your attention. Now rock on, Assassins!
