Overland Park?
« on: November 24, 2013, 07:45:17 PM »
Hey guys my names Nathan, been doing parkour for about a year and a half and just moved here from El Paso texas a couple months back and haven't had anyone to train with. It's made it pretty difficult to go out and train now that theres just no one to train with. If theres anyone out on overland park area who wants to go to the gym, or show me some spots just pm me or email me. I'd love to be able to get back into this scene.

My team and I are going to an open gym in Overland Park the Saturday(7:30pm to 9:30pm) after Thanksgiving, actually. The gym is Diamond Academy, it's on 161st just south of the Walmart on Metcelf Avenue. The instructors and other people there can probably tell you about local spots, I'm actually in a small town south of Overland Park. You need to turn in a form that they have online and bring $10 to get in. www.diamondacademy.com/
If you need to know more you can email me nickqholmes@gmail.com

Glad to help  :)
No, I live in in the country between Paola and Louisburg but I go to Paola. Look for the white kid with Team Avian on his shirt near a group of other highschoolers.

Mmm broken bones for the win. How'd you manage that? Air awareness is something that I totally have none of, but I guess it's time to start learning. Saturday will be the first time i've trained in like 5 months or so.

Basically I wasn't paying attention when I was sitting down on a concrete wall. It was about hip height and I went to go from standing to sitting in one motion by using my hands help. Didn't quite work out that way.
Better to be starting up again than stopping. Most of my team can't train very rgularly do to schedules, I understand.

Well that sounds like fun man, hope it heals all well.

Yeah I'm used to training very hard on the daily. So 5 months without really being able to do any really intense training is kind of torture. I'm always free, but theres just no real training spots within walking distance from my house. And my school is a twenty minute drive away, so it's just not worth going there to train. I'm probably gonna invest my time into making some vault boxes and what not to train with just for teh lulz. Damn, I really want to train now.

If you don't have much variety get really good at what you can practice until you're at the point where it's flat out rediculous how good you are at it.

Hey man, I just saw tonight that Diamond Academy is closed until the 2nd. We're not going on the 7th but we are on the 14th and possibly me and my friend/co-founder on the 21st.
Sorry I didn't catch this earlier

Hey nick, would it just be easier to hand you my number? This way if you go out you can just hit me up. I always answer my phone, and it would be easier.
