Hey everyone!

I'm Ted, from Boulder, CO, where there's a hella lot of snow on the ground so I'm stuck doing conditioning inside but I can't wait to get back to jumping over stuff when it melts :P

I'm 14 (15 pretty soon, though xD) and got into/started practicing/learned about Parkour from some friends give or take 2 months ago. I can only do some basic stuff and my roll isn't amazing but it's getting there.

When I'm not practicing techniques, I like to run, read, play violin/piano/guitar, do martial arts (Hapkido/Muay Thai/BJJ) and lurk on forums. Nice to meet everyone!

Cheers,
Ted

Greetings!

My name is Elvis and I started PKing about 6 years ago when the sport was just getting into gear.  An avid Volleyball player (HS, Collegiate D3), I decided to quit Parkouring to avoid potential injury.  Volleyball was my main priority and I did not want to take any risk in injuring my legs.  I have pretty good leaping abilities and did not want to risk losing it. Anyway, now that I'm ending my collegiate career and playing more as a recreational thing, Ive decided to take up Running which I absolutely love. But before running and volleyball, there was PK.

My only general question, because I feel it is very important to ask, is how is the PK community?  Whenever getting into a hobby, I feel that the community is a very important aspect of what you're doing. I like to meet people who are friendly and outgoing. Is the PK community an active and supportive one?

Thanks for reading.

Greetings all, great to have you here.

From what I understand, pk has a great community, especially in certain areas. I've yet to try to contact the community in my area because I want to get into shape so I can train safely first, but all I've heard form others finds the pk community to be very supportive and accepting. The online community here has been very good to me thus far.

Thank you for the response  :)

That's very good to hear. I usually tend to shy away from online communities of certain hobbies i pursue because of the hostility derived from certain members.  I can already tell that the PK community is a supportive and encouraging one. See you all around  ;D

Hey my name is michael. I've been learning parkour for just a year. I'm in blytheville arkansas and since there is noone here that practices or even know what parkour/freerunning is; i've learned everything on my own.(not safe)  I want to know are there any places i can go to find and train with others?

I'm John from upstate NY, I live in the Glens Falls area. I've been really interested in parkour from videos I'd seen for a while now but no one around here does it or even talks about it, so I've never attempted it. I hope to try to meet some people and start learning.

F1NCHIE, here, never knew there was an american parkour organisation till today.

I haven't done any training, but, would like to.

I live in Decatur, Illinois.

Decatur Illinois is compiled of no fun, industry, misery, the seven deadly sins, and a little place called krekels which is like underpriced and modest Culvers.

I would like to know if there's anyone in Decatur who would like to train with me and show me the ropes.
