This has been an issue that I've dealt with (I am sure we all have dealt with at some point/throughout) since I began in '08.
I really don't care what others seem to do. It does seem that the majority of the parkour community is focused on tricking, but that is just my opinion based on my own experience.
Just like, it seems that most of the parkour community is ranged from 14-20 - the largest amount being high school students. Again, my personal experience.
So, I stick with my own personal design of parkour, in which I focus my energy in conditioning and technique advancements with hints of acrobatics here and there to keep things spunky.
That in mind, 90% of the people I meet who are interested in learning parkour are looking to learn how to do "flips off of crap". Meh.
It is what it is.
NOTE: Like it was stated previously, Original Poster is not able to ban himself. It was a venting rant that spurred a topic that has been affecting traceurs since Parkour became a community, me thinks.
