I have been doing parkour for 2-3 years now and have seen many differences in my style of parkour from other people's. I am quite agile, flexible, and strong (stamina included) and have a light 130 pound frame. BUT one huge difference between what i do and what i have seen others do is the fact that i incorporate stealth into my parkour. Its more like 50% parkour 50% stealth.
I have been developing this skill by sneaking around places, some of which are guarded, and training in covert infiltration/exfiltration. Let me explain: I have always been the kid who wins at hide and go seek and who spends more time on roofs or in trees than on the ground. I also was a very stupid kid and liked sneaking into places. I would sneak into abandoned buildings (urban exploring), into occupied buildings, into office buildings using the parking garages, into schools at night (with alarms and such) by the age of 12. I got into graffiti and used my stealthy ways to tag places and what not. I also was (am) very adept at social engineering. I learned how to pick locks and how to case an area out. I was basically a ghost. I was addicted to going into places that i wasn't allowed to be in just for the rush and experience. I could (can) get inside a place, do my thing, and get out, without anyone knowing. This is my forte. I am addicted to being stealthy, being right under people's noses without them ever finding me. I am also addicted to growing and learning. I want to know if anyone else has any useful advice, tips, stories, anything. If anyone wants to hear anything from me, ask away.
