Charlottesville Parkour?
« on: April 15, 2007, 02:51:58 PM »
Hey guys,

I'm new to the parkour scene.  I just moved to Charlottesville to start grad school at UVA.  Any traceurs willing to take a new guy under his wing and go jamming in central VA?

Axe!

You missed me by 4 months! I lived in Orange for the last 5 years and used to train in Charlottesville relatively often. Actually, the first Jump-VA July Jam was hosted in Orange and C-ville and was a ton of fun. Check out some of the downtown mall areas as well as a spot or two on the main UVA campus for some good training. I'll keep you updated if I plan on stopping back by any time soon!

Yikes! That's too bad.  Where'd you move on to?  Do you know any traceurs still in the area?

I'm only about 45 minutes away.  I've found a few guys at JMU who are into it, so maybe we'll have a good size group in the Fall.

I don't know of anyone who PKs at JMU but if you travel 2 hours down to Tech you'll find a HUGE group of us waiting!

Just applied to UVA and UMaryland. Good to hear there will be a pk scene going on around there.
It used to be I dreamt of flying... Now I dream of doing the smoothest, most fluid Parkour ever.

Sorry, let me clear that up. More likely uVA, which is awesome. Are you a transfer? What are you going into?

I'm going in as a freshman; assuming I get in I'd like to go into physics or chemistry.

Hey Jason, and everyone else who's posted. I know it's been a while since this thread was started, but I wanted to know if there was still the interest to start training. I know it's pretty cold outside, but aren't there gyms or something on campus? Even then, some cold weather training would be awesome. So I'm looking for people who would like to be in the area this weekend. The only bit of Charlottesville I currently know is the UVA area, so I'm pretty lost anywhere else.

Btw, what's the DTM?

So give a holler to see how many people are into running a few jams this year. Freerunner, It would be awesome to train with you some time.

Anyways, as far as I can tell, judging by this evil winter weather: Sat. Sun. 19/20. UVA, near Hereford Res. College around 1.00pm. . There's a couple of rails and picnic tables there I want to work on, as well as wall climbs. Jeez, the whole campus is great for anything.

I can be contacted at 787-370 7344. Good luck to you all.
