Hello everybody,

Names Brad,

Grew up in Rochester NY now in Brooklyn studying industrial design at Pratt. Previously i was interested in Bouldering, and a bit of buildering, however recently discovering parkour have changed my interests just a bit.

Hey everyone!

I'm Chris.  I've done pretty extensive rock climbing and bouldering in the past (climbed with Tori and Clark Allen, if anyone is familiar.)  I'm a soldier in the Indiana National Guard and I'm starting my career as a practitioner right now, day one.  I've had cursory experiences with parkour but, in wanting something to cross-train and supplement my exercise regimen, I'm looking to commit myself more to the philosophy.  I'm always down for an interesting chat, so if you're an interesting person, give me a buzz.

Hi all,
I am brand new to Parkour, and have decided to learn as much as my body can handle. 
I am in Greenville, SC and have a constantly changing work schedule, but would love to meet others who do this in the area.
Drop me a line anytime.

Hi, probably should have posted here before anything..but I am an artist and well that comes first before any introductions...
So I'm Heather, 18, a female, attend ODU, and I love parkour.
I've been practicing it on and off for about a year and a half since my b/f (Eugene "Manimal" Skinner) introduced me to it during our senior year of high school. I'm okay at it, but with more practice and training I can be great! Anywho, I normally train in my hot pink skort (shorts/skirt), so you can see me from far away.
...umm, I normally train at VIGS down in Richmond with the Urban Impulse group back when I had time. Half the time, I was the photographer/video recorder person.
So yea, that's about it ^^
I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place.I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mess that led to a beautiful disaster.

Sup everyone? My name's Phil; currently located in Denver, CO. I've been training for, well, one day. I decided it was best to seek guidance before I inadvertently do something stupid and hurt myself, so here I am!

Hey, I'm Mike from Ohio. I love the workouts you post here at APK. Most of my training is for climbing rock (sport and some trad), but I'm looking to get into the freerunning scene.

Expression and Freedom
« Reply #817 on: October 30, 2008, 01:23:07 PM »
Hey i'm 14 and i believe that parkour is about expressing yourself and freedom..it's my only outlet of freedom no rules no expectation of parents to make good grades, no school just me and freedom of expression. first off i want to say im really sorry about Eon's death, i actualy looked up to him he was my inspiration for parkour. I'm glad yall' posted those videos on monkysee.com or i would've never found this site.Oh and Chase  great video it gave me chills *Awesome video!*. i parkour when i can, lately i havn't been able to so ya cya.
