Listen everyone and listen closely. DO NOT CLIMB ONTO BUILDINGS ITS NOT PARKOUR. Seriously, do not go on rooftops to train. It's ridiculously pointless. When you've been training for 6 years, then maybe go ahead and give it a shot because you know your limits, but until then ground level only.
You guys are acting like climbing on buildings is a part of parkour. It's most certainly not. Any jackass can go onto a f#cking rooftop and dink around up there. Jumping off of things is not parkour either. PROMINENTparkour I'm assuming your new or haven't trained much along with all the other people who are giving advice on going on roof tops. Let me clear up a few misconceptions for you. One, nobody on this board will be impressed with you if you go onto a roof, the responsible members will shoot you down. Two, parkour is the art of movement not the art of breaking the laws and trying to run from cops. If you want to do that than do it but don't call it parkour and don't post it on here. Three, parkour is a discipline that's to be progressed through safely. Rooftops aren't safe. Then four, what do rooftops offer that ground level training doesn't? Hayden Williams, you mentioned that at ground level you could work on pullups. Really? Like, do you have a clue what vaults are, what precisions are? Let me clarify what ground level is. Ground level is anyplace that's not on a roof. Therefore, ground level training offers MANY more options for training than rooftops do. Hence rooftop training is in and of itself pointless. It's really not that difficult to climb a drain pipe. Learn to wall run instead.
Seriously if you guys keep thinking that you need to go onto roofs to do parkour than you're just going to get hurt, and you're going to quit parkour soon enough. Seriously, anybody who's been training seriously will tell you the same thing I told you above. If I sounded mean and a little pissed off then you read this message correctly. I'm not necessarily mad at you guys, I'm more angry that nobody thought to corerect you guys on this earlier.
