Hey I'm Catherine, I'm from TX.
So, yeah I like running, drawing, and playing piano.
I'm brand new to Parkour, but want to learn more about it, and I'm pretty excited to get started.
Any tips? :)

I'm Jamison,

I am from Portland OR and have been training off and on for about 8 years.

Been doing some tricking lately in Portland because I tend to get bored training the same stuff all the time so I thought I would expand my skill set.

Any how I'm on a road trip now across the south to Florida and back over the winter months. As a result I am extremely more interested in parkour lately because I have constantly varying terrain to practice on  :) :) :)

As of now I am in Austin for about a week and just got back from the open gym practice that they do on Monday's.

It was super fun and these guys look like they're serious about training and got some good skills. Their metaphysical powers seem fairly strong as well.  ;)

I'm looking forward to meeting new traceurs as I make my way across the country. My main stops will be in New Orleans and Jensen beach Florida from here. If any one comes across this feel free to contact me with any info for meeting up. jp2ykz@gmail.com

Konging low stuff is stupid. Just jump over it. Or just do a cool flip over it.

Hi I'm Cate. I live in Birmingham, AL. I'm a junior and college and a ballet dancer. I always thought Parkour looked like the coolest thing ever, and I decided I want to try it as a new way of moving my body, staying fit, and using my muscles that's different from ballet. I'm totally new to this and I don't know anyone who does it, but I'm ready to learn about it and to start training.

Hi the names Stephen. I'm from Middletown, CT. I haven't done any type of parkour stuff before, but I'm interested in doing it though. I think I'm capable of doing it, I'm into climbing stuff and I like running, so why not try this. If anyone wants to get together to try this just lemme know. You can reach me on my aim at efin89

Hey guys, name's Trae- been freerunnin for about four weeks now. Trying to learn to run in the rain, since it never F***ING stops raining here in Houston. First time I ever tried freernning, I busted my knee, dislocated my shoulder, and bashed my head on the ground. Thus, I've decided to seek help from more experienced persons such as you, APK. thanks for the warm welcome and the advice to keep my bones unbroke and my joints firmly settled in their sockets.
