 I understand where both bama and demon are coming from and their concerns, but i believe this topic was just started to try to gather the public's input.
 Definitely I think that a rock climbing wall would be beneficial, even if it isnt technically parkour.
 Maybe a staircase with some different height rails and things would help people train for the different kinds they encounter in the outside world.
 Scaffolding could be easily moved to make different courses, but you would need to be sure it won't tip over.
 Gymnastics places usually have a trampoline, and it does help with flips and such
 Just some input on what i think, take it or leave it. I'd just like to see this project followed through on.

.....I just think it sounds like a good idea.  :-\

Ya but that is a bouldering gym, with no flat walls, and a floor that takes away all your bounce, but is nice for dive rolls, but yeah eventually Ryan and Matt will open up there own gym only for PK, hopefully I can work there!! ;D
