Welcome Kentucky Traceurs!
« on: January 05, 2010, 06:16:16 PM »
Hello everyone! I'm the new mod for the Kentucky area. Lets see if we can't inject a little life into this part of the forum. Introduce yourself:

Name: Mark Lewis

Age: 24

Area: Louisville, KY

Local Group: Louisville Parkour (LPK)

About Me: I'm a graduate of Ball State University with a degree in Economics. I've only been actively training for about a year, but I have seen excellent progress over this time; largely thanks to my friends in LPK. I love to pass on knowledge that has been passed on to me. That's the only way that man ever truly builds something great.

Likes: Parkour, Meditation, Math, Puzzles, The Color Green, Vocal Harmony, Teaching, Playing Games

Dislikes: Apathy, Fences, Lack of Communication, Cubicles, Sleep Deprivation


Follow my lead above. If you're in the Lousiville area, check out the LPK sticky. If not, keep an eye out here and lets see if we can't find some training partners for ya. Cheers!

I just got into Parkour a few months ago and have been training on my own, but have been unable to find a partner. I would really like to meet up with someone here that knows more than I do that could guide me.

Name: Josh Selter

Age: 23

Area: Louisville, KY (J-Town)

Local Group: Louisville Parkour (MetaL)

About Me: I'm pretty new to Parkour, but it has really captivated and motivated me, and is something I plan on devoting a lot of time to. Just thought I'd say hey and connect with everyone, and hopefully learn something from those of you that have more experience than myself (Which I'd imagine is everyone here, lol). I've been trying to get more physically fit for this, and in the past five months have gone from 315 down to 260, so I'm a work in progress and hopefully I'll be able to hang. Being new to the scene I really don't know how many beginners there are in the area, I kinda assumed everyone would be out of my league. Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet some of you over the coming months.

Until then,

Josh
