I'd heard about it briefly about a year or so ago, I was told what the definition was and knew some people that were into it, but I never really understood what it was. Just a few days ago, I saw a Youtube video by Ronnie Shalvis and Devin Graham, "Assassin's Creed meets Real Life," Honestly, I loved it, and I started to look up the roots of parkour and I suddenly got it. I love the fact that parkour has a deeper meaning than just, "Hey...that looks cool," I'm gonna be brutally honest and say that, after reading about it, I realized...this could be just the thing that I'm looking for in life - in the sense that I've always been afraid of getting into trouble that I can't get out of, namely a physical fight, and right now, I'm weak and vulnerable. If I get in a fight, I'm toast. I've tried to learn martial arts, but I hated the classes, hated that it became a ranking system of, "So and so is better than you and there's nothing you can do about it," I hated the competition of it all. It occurred to me that in a way, it could very well save my life as a sort of 'flight response,' Being safe is something that's always worried me, cus I've never been a tough guy.
