I'm still new with this board and trying to understand the rules but I feel for once that I can related to a lot of you even though I have never met any of you (soon to change).
Yes this is coming from my heart so it is really hard to put this out but I feel I will be treated right for once.
yeah dude im pretty new here too and i already like it. People could disagree with you or something, but theres never any putdowns. Im loving it already xD

hey, thanks for sharing this. I love reading your posts.. :)
Idk who that was directed towards, but if it was me, then thank you! ^_^

@Above: Yeah. Especially from me. I can be like "nah, I don't think that's right, and here is what I think" but not really get hostile.

Well i live in alabama and as you could probably guess,there is not too much to do around here. i would grow tired of staying at home and playing video games or just playing outside since i didnt really have any friends. so i went to a college gym. there i found a guy who was a hardcorparkourist. so i would go and train with him on the weekends. that is how i ended up doing what i am now doing.  :)

Well I was sitting in Dual Credit with my friend, And he started talking to me about how him and someone else were doing it at a park. So he asked me to start doing it with him, and I looked up videos on parkour and Freerunning, So now we all go out and parkour/Freerun wherever :)
If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.

Well i'm going to begin training after Christmas and I have never tried it before but, it always interested me in a way that every time I watched a video or just do some simple wall maneuver or climbing it gets me excited and i want to get more involved into it. So this will be new for me beginning 2011 wish me luck.

My brother was watching this show called ninja warrior from g4. One of the competitors was Levi meeuwenberg. Before he started the obstacle course, they showed a little bit about his background and how he qualified for the show. They talked about parkour and freerunning and it looked cool, so I wanted to try it out.

I don't really know how I got into it. I don't know per say if it was a youtube video or what it was. I know that I do buildering so that is one reason that I might have learned about it but to tell the truth. I honestly don't know.

I was doing PK before I knew what PK was. I remember when I was about 10yrs old, me and one of my friends were taking martial arts classes together thinking we were gonna become little ninjas haha. So, being ninja n00bz, we always had an interest in stacking up things in my hallway (pillows, boxes, whatever) and we would jump or dive over it and keep stacking things up until we couldn't jump it because it was so high. About a year later, we started going outside to climb trees and my shed and tying strings from one tree to another, they were about 5 feet apart and we would run across my yard and then jump over the string. Then, we started going out to the end of my street every day to climb on to the huge (at the time lol) brick wall that was like 6 feet tall that shows the name of the neighborhood on it and we would jump off of it and roll when we hit the ground! Hahaha soooo much fun! Anyway, then I moved away to another town suddenly and lost contact with my friend...No one else was interested in martial arts/jumping around and what not where I moved so I kinda just forgot about that stuff and got into new things (no one to train with :( )....then about 7 years later, I saw Ninja Warrior and I was like DOOOOD THAT LOOKS LIKE THE S*** I USED TO DO OMG!!!!!!!!!!! I started researching about the show and ran across something about parkour/free running and was instantly mesmerized by the fact that what I thought was just "jumping around and being stupid" was ACTUALLY a professional sport! So basically that's how I got into PK :) !!!!!! Despite trying to get the word out about PK since then, I still have yet to find anyone to train with, which suuuucks but it's still fun on my own!

Well, arguably a sport, but we don't quite like that term. It's more of an extreme activity if you will. But yeah. So where do you live? Anywhere in Missouri possibly? Preferably Saint Joseph? Please? I need more people to train with here. XD
