Hello, I'm Anne. I'm also a newbie to parkour and currently in college. I haven't found anyone here to train with, but I've still been working. Mostly I focus on the fundamentals, running, jumping, climbing, balance, stealth and touch/sensitivity (as written in Dan Edwardes The Parkour and Freerunning Handbook). I've got the roll down already since I learned something really similar to kung fu and I started a few basic vaults, but I have a problem and I think it's one other women would understand. Since i'm by myself, I get really self concious about practicing my vaults and rolls in public. I know no one really cares if I'm jumping a wall and rolling around, but I still can't bring myself to do those things in front of strangers, so I just try to find sucluded spots and wait until no one's around, which not only limits how much training I do, but also makes it hard for me to find places. Anyone else have this problem?
