Welcome to the forums Arthur and Isaac!

I'm going to go ahead and point you guys to the Movement boards so you both can learn, and better improve your skills.

I would also suggest the General Fitness boards so you can develop more muscle, and better eating habits.  ;)

Arthur I see that you have already found the Cali boards so have fun finding someone in your area!

If you guys have any questions feel free to PM me.  :)

Hey all. Just dropping in to greet everyone. I'm a complete noob at parkour and looking to meet up with some people in the Anne Arundel County area in Maryland. If you do, hit me up. Thanks.

Hey guys! Welcome to apk!

I would advise you to visit the Movement boards for advice and tips on specific movements.

I would also suggest the General Fitness boards for advice on training and dieting.

Mondo, If you'd like to train with traceurs in your area try the California boards.
For Miyuki, try the Georgia boards.
Last but not least Marcus, try making a thread in the Texas boards. I'm sure you'll get some responses. ;)
and I can see Phil already found his way around.

If you guys have any questions feel free to shoot me a PM.

Hey guys, my name is Mitch Theisen. I live in the Hampton Roads area in Yorktown. I'm new to this thing, and need some help getting started. A couple of friends in my neighborhood and school have been talking about this and got me interested. I tried wallrunning and can reach about 13ft wall-tops easily. But I would like to get a good pair of shoes. I was looking at 510, and KSwiss, but KS doesn't have my size.  >:(

Thanks and looking forward to gaining information from this site!

Hey there,
Pox here from Denver, Co. Been practicing mainly the APK/ Xfit WOD's for the past few years (seriously for the past year). It's been solo mostly up until the last 8 months where my buddy and I meet once a week to workout together. Training solo has been a great learning experience for me since I hold sole responsibility. Albeit, it is not as fast as I can learn from someone further down the road in training/ someone more learned/ professional, but that will come. My training partner and I plan to enroll @ APEX in Feb to take our training to the next level. I'm a parkour enthusiast, but want to get better at it along with bboying. Currently I practice popping and other hip-hop inspired dance along with swing/salsa/tango. Other than that I love to cook, sew, and move about. I look forward to networking with some people here in Denver as well as the San Diego/OC/LA area for when I visit my fam. I am happy the bugs got worked out of this forum, been wanting this community for some time now... Thanx and happy training!

Hi this is username Hero Hammerhand. I am from Seymour Tenn. Though I haven't really been doing parkour officially, I have been doing this kind of stuff all of my life. A few years ago I officially discovered parkour. I can't find any school or anything around me so I am still not training officially and I am sure my technique is sloppy. I am in pretty good shape, I am fast, flexible, and agile, and I do a lot of martial arts and try to train myself in parkour.

Welcome to apk everyone!  ;D

I would prefer you all check out the Movement boards for tutorials, and tips on movements.

I would also suggest the General Fitness boards for training tips, and dieting advice.

If you guys are interested in finding traceurs in your area just scroll down the forum hompage and find that big section that says  "Local Connections - USA" and find the region you're in, then find the state.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Hello, I'm Harry Vener (Veh-ner) I'm from Morris County in NJ. I've been practicing since February of this year. I've progressed a lot and I still have a lot to go.
I act, do taekwondo, forensicate, and go to high school.
As is common, there aren't a lot of training spots near me, but I'm working on it.  ;D
