Hi, I'm Josh from Houston, Texas. I'm relatively new to the idea of parkour, but was always a climber and runner in my younger years. And it was actually the chase scene at the beginning of 007 Casino Royale that brought parkour to my attention as a sport.

Anyways, I found this on the website http://www.americanparkour.com/content/view/2190/396/ and realized that the first performance shown was at my school (University of Houston), so I just thought I'd drop in and see if I could find any parkour buddies in Houston.

My name is Marvin Tigchelaar, and i live in The Netherlands. About five years ago i started training Le Parkour in Holland. Since than i have been learning a lot and also had the privilage of training a view times with the French guys who started it all those years ago. Since than me and two guys I train with in Holland have been "promoted" to be the PAWA Netherlands ( David Belles PArkour Worldwide Association ) representatives.

Because of my study in Holland at the KLM Flight Academy I will be moving to Phoenix for 5 months starting February the second. I will be following flying lessons at sabena airline training center Scotsdale. As you probably understand i wont be puting a rest on my Parkour training, so i was hoping that with a little bit of help from some locals i will be able to find some nice spots to train together.

So thats why i signed up to this forum.

Greatings, Marvin

What's up? I'm Michael from Northern Virginia. I'm just starting Parkour my friend told me about it and I'm really exited. I'm pretty athletic so i dont think it should be real ball-busting but I can't wait.

Holy sh*t, my brother lives there and is in the 82nd Airborne! His name is Charles Tisdale?

I've been trying to get him to do Parkour instead of getting wasted every night but he hasn't found anybody to train with...

Hello,

My name is Tyler, I'm 21 and am from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada.  I'm completely new to Parkour, and I have not done any training or anything yet.  I've always been intrigued by climbing buildings, etc. but have never done much.  Anyway, my hopes are to start training this winter (winter's pretty bad in Winnipeg so I probably wont be able to try much out outside for a while anyway) and see what kind of places I can find in the spring/summer.

Though, atm, I'm a little unsure how to go about my training.  I'm not sure what kind of gym access I'll have... I will have a pass to a gym but probably no access to any acrobatic equipment.  I've really liked what I've seen for beginners around this site so far, but I'm still trying to figure out my starting steps.  If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

Thanks!
