Kaisen, the trainer behind Corpus Christi Parkour, has an unusual relationship with gravity. While most other humans accept that they'll remain bound to the earth by its invisible pull, Kaisen challenges its forces through rapid, airborne moves known only to parkour experts and students of the gloves-made-of-chewed-gum school of acrobatics. He shares those skills during lessons held in settings such as Heritage Park, teaching students how to scale virtually any obstacle while simultaneously improving their flexibility and strength. Kaisen also leads children's fitness classes, boot-camp workouts, and personal-training sessions.

The D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run challenges its participants to think the unthinkable: “Could I survive a zombie apocalypse?” Throughout the 5K mud-slicked course, only the savviest runners will maintain their humanity, dodging hordes of the undead and navigating strength- and agility-testing obstacles. Runners start with three flags that represent their life force. Those who can keep at least one flag safe from the zombies’ corpsey clutches remain human, and those who lose them all make the harrowing transformation into a brain-hungry zombie. But the D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run is more than a grueling race; it’s also an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the largest zombie gathering on Earth.

After the race, every participant’s name is entered in a drawing for the grand prize—a trip for two to Las Vegas—and event hosts dole out speed prizes to those with at least one flag remaining. Zombies also compete for a set of undead awards and strut very, very slowly in a zombie beauty pageant.
