Hello, I'm Paul from Virginia. Been at this for....zero days lol. Well, I dabbled with Parkour techniques, but I've done a lot of reading up and so I have a good general knowledge of what I am getting into. Just gotta find a way to start. It sounds easy, just start. But I want to actually set up a schedule to train, as well as do it properly.


As a plus, I think I think I have vaulting down. Rolling is hard for me to do right now though, and other stuff I have not really tried because I have not found a good place to train.

Hey, I'm Brendan.

Sorry for the cheesy nick-name but Brendan was taken. I'm a traceur from the UK and I just saw Levi on Ninja Warrior (we're at least a series behind here, it's not on a mainstream channel) and I thought I'd come and see what American Parkour was all about. I've seen a few great videos so I thought I'd sign up so I could comment on some.

Nice to meet you.

Here's a really old vid of me in case you're interested. Some of the clips date back to 2005... old school! lol.

Name: Rachel
Age: 16
Location: Millstone (pretty much unheard of, but its on the border between Freehold and Jackson), NJ

Saw some awesome vids on youtube and i thought id give it a shot. I don't have any background in gymnastics or martial arts or anything, but i do run (x-country and long distance in track & field), so i figured it was time to take it up a notch. Parkour seems intense and awesome, and im pretty excited for it, so im glad i could join the APK forums and talk to others with the same interests  :)

ps- im also a new to using forums, so hopefully i wont mess up or embarrass myself too badly lol.
You can tell me to stop. You can tell me I can't do it. You can say WHATEVER you want.

Then you can watch me do it all and prove you wrong.

Hi, I'm Karl W, hence "Kdub". I'm 19 and have been training for just under a month now and loving Parkour. I've spent most of the time conditioning in order to work myself up gradually.

I have read several philosophical articles on parkour(such as "Concrete jungle" here at apk in the learn section) and am very compelled to live the ideals behind them, and since have dedicated myself to training, after a long period of not really having a true motivation to train.

I'm new to these forums and am hoping to learn lots from these forums.

peace,
Karl.

Hey everybody. My name is Ignacio AKA Sexotiko. I'm 15 and I'm from Puerto Rico and I just recently got very interested in Parkour. I'm currently waiting for a knee injury to finish healing up (2 weeks maybe) then I'll start training hardcore. I'm interested in Parkour as much as it is physically, as it is mentally since I've always looked at the philosophical perspective of things.

I'm new to the lifestyle, and forums and am very much willing and hoping to learn a lot from them and others.

Cheke,
Sexotiko

Hello, My name is Tony and I began Parkour 2 weeks ago; I am hoping to find Parkours in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Okay hi, see parkour is not a verb you shouldn't say I parkour or I am gonna go parkour just stick a train in front of it so you go train parkour and the word for someonethat does parkour is a Traceur.
See you around the forums! ;D

LOL, I did not know that thanks :)
