Never noticed this thread before.. haha  :-\  Well I guess better late than never!

I'm Marshall, I'm 18, and I live in Chesterfield VA right next to Richmond.  I train with Blarg, Trickster10, and sometimes Klayman from the forums and a few more that aren't on here.  I've been training for almost 3 months now and feel like I've progressed pretty quickly.

Nice to meet you guys!

My real name is Jon.  I'm 24.  I'm brand new to this stuff, I just started practicing rolls in my yard, and taking steps up the side of my house.  Parkour is pretty exciting stuff.  I came around here in hopes of finding like minded people to train with.  I'm somewhat lost in the dark.  It'd be nice to have someone more experienced show me the ropes.

I'm a wilderness survival instructor by passion, and a ropes course facilitator by trade.

I live north of Atlanta.  I look forward to some networking with some of the people here.  Until then, take care.

hey name's kyle,  AFrunner = Air Force runner, but most people call be birdman,

    Live in Rolla Missouri and East St. Louis.  Always been into the "extreme sports" as a lot of people call them.  did skateboarding mostly with free running on the side when my board was broken.  I've been doing free running since I was 10 but never took it very seriously, (it was always looked down upon with the friends I used to hang out with).  I joined this site to find like-minded people, like a lot of posts said before me, and to start taking it more seriously.  I also joined the site to get my flips on lock, I had a bad incident when I was 17,  so i figured this would be the place to get some tips and such.

Hey its john

 I live in Ohio in the Cleveland area and although I am new to the term parkour i have been doing many different vaults for awhile not just for fun

I dont know anyone in my area who does parkour so if anyone does live near me please tell me
Parkour has helped me grow as much mentally as it has physically.

Hey, Sam here. I'm in San Diego right now looking to get into some parkour. I've already been doing crossfit for a few months now. Just starting into basic movements and looking for any advice you guys can give.
Thanks.

hello, i call myself Pendengra. i have just started parkour and i live the idea even if i'm no good at it (but with some effort maybe that will change). i love doing Shao-Lin Kung Fu and i enjoy doing anything outside - hiking, biking, rock climbing. i'm 18(or will be in a week), live in Parkersburg West Virginia, and i've now run out of things to say. so that's me.

Hey, I'm Riv. I've already been posting a bit, but oh well. I've always been into tricking and flipping, and for a couple months I've been being introduced to parkour. But just very recently I've decided I wanna get more into it. I used to do gymnastics, but I had back surgery in 7th grade and I lost all my flips and such becuase the surgery altered my spine. I've done Judo for almost 10 years, so I've got no fear of hard falls, haha.

I live in Ithaca, NY. Don't know anyone here who does Parkour, though, but I know there are a lot of people in the Roch.

Hi there, I announced my arrival in the female forum, but wanted to say "HI" here too.
I currently live in Amarillo TX. Moving from Austin it is quite a switch.
I have had an interest in Parkour for some time, but finally decided to participate myself, it just "feels" right. I have experience in the military and am re-enlisting in the US army in the next couple of weeks (small arms). I look forward to my new dedication(s) and the new challenges it will bring me. I also have a deep interest in martial arts, such as Crav Maga. I love learning and pushing myself to the next "better me". :)

Hey, Matt here, just started parkour but after hearing about it and what it's about, I realized I've actually have been doing this on and off for about half a year. I hope to start doing it more frequently
and start improving on what I already know.
