Life After COVID: Nachos the Parkour Artist

  • Follow the lives of eight artists in Singapore as they reveal how COVID-19 has affected them and how they adapted to it. This is the story of Nachos (Nyan Lin Cho) the Parkour Artist.

To avoid a desk-bound job, Nachos started out by performing acrobatics and stilt walking before he discovered parkour. As hype around the sport grew, he began teaching classes but faced backlash from disgruntled residents and the police.

The local parkour community used to gather monthly, where people from different academies and groups came together for a joint training session and showcase. But seeing a large group of people jumping and looping through residential neighbourhoods made the public wary of them and they were routinely asked to break off and leave by the police.Ā 

When the pandemic hit, the monthly gatherings had to stop entirely. Nachos moved his classes online, but he struggled to train in the constraints of his house. Even when Phase 2 started and they adhered to social distancing restrictions, it gave authorities an additional reason to disrupt their training sessions.

Learn the ways Nachos circumvents these obstacles in this episode of Life After COVID.
