Hey, my name is Will, and I found out about parkour and freerunning by watching Levi on Ninja Warrior  :) Very cool, I know.

I'm a sophomore at James Madison University in Virginia, and I'm studying to be a piano performance major, but I did track and cross-country in high school, so I've always been involved in sports of some sort.  I've been conditioning and mildly training Parkour for about two to three months now, and I'm hoping to meet some other people to train with here in Harrisonburg to really get started.

Oh, and I live about 30 minutes from Fredericksburg when I'm not at school, if that matters any.

I hope to learn a lot and contribute however I can.  This is a great community, so thanks for having me!

Hey I'm Daniel and I am 17.  I've been practicing parkour for about six months.  I used to hang out at parkour.net, but it was closed down :(.  Anyway, I want to get involved in the forums here ;)

Hello from Riverside California [WTF]
Started free running back when other people called it 'freestyle walking' in the late 90's. Quit for a while here and there, but started getting back into it recently, as i need to exercise more and this is what i like.

peace

Hey, I'm new here, as of today I've been doing parkour for about 3 days. I'm fairly good at cat jumps. I'm in Missoula MT, and hope to find a perfect spot to practice.

Oops I seem to have found this post after I made an introducing post of myself time for the good ole "Copy and Paste."

Hello My name is Jessie. Tho My nick name is The Haunter. I Just recently go into Parkour/Free Running recently. I'm an Am. MMA (Mix Martial Arts) fighter. I wanted to get into something else in my area that I could do for added training between fights, and this seemed like the best thing I could get into. Its fun, I can do it with others, I look like a cool super human ninja while doing it and it beats running 10 miles a day with my ipod,lol. Well I guess thats a base for me. I'm highly interested in meeting some people in my area and doing some parkour/free running with. I'm located in the D.C./MD/VA area. Please drop me a line if your interested in training.


"Done"

Cool! That's a great area. You're fairly close to the Severna Park/Glen Burnie people, and fairly close to DC/Primal as well. Check out the Mid Atlantic board and keep track of what's going on.

hey im Scott Smith, age 19, live in Hemet CA. Usually kick it around Temecula though cause hemet is boring.
Just looking for some guys in the area who want to kick it really. I have my own crew, but we do more tricking than parkour. It's something that we still think is cool. Just cause it's challenging and all.

Soooo... I'm not really new, but I never noticed this thread before, and now I must atone.

I'm Eli from Springfield, MO.  I'm 20 years old, and a junior at Drury University.  I've haunted apk.com and the forums for about a year and a half now, and I've just started training real, live parkour moves three weeks ago.

Hey all.  My name's Spencer, I'm from Springfield, MO.  I'm a senior at Missouri State and have started training with Eli Kurtz a few posts up.  We started our own small parkour group of about six people (and growing) and it has been fun as hell so far.
