Well made the mistake of posting my hello somewhere else, anyways.

My name is Joe or Omi, whichever.

I'm 20 years old, I've only been into parkour for the last few months. The weather has been horrible so I haven't gotten do do much actual training. Instead i've been focusing on getting my body and mind into shape. Eating and living healthier, which is an area I once had much trouble with. I used to drink to much, party alil to much, and smoke to much. However I happened to see Jump London I think it was on tv one day, I saw the art then and knew that it was something I could do. I actually went out and messed around abit and the exhilaration, the freedom was just amazing it gave me the will to change my life around. I quit smoking, drinking, partying and started taking care of myself. And so that brings me to here, I've never met another traceur in my life nor talked to one so I decided I needed to find some people to poke fun at me and tell me what i'm doing wrong  ;D Anyways happy to meet you guys

What is up APK!!! The names kyle, all my friends call me KG or kage, whichever. I've been doing parkour for about 5 months now, and it has opened a new door in my life. I hav been a member here for months, but some reason it wouldn't let me register to the forums. So i had to resort to urbanfreeflow's forums. Anyways it's awesome to finally be able to talk to everyone.... Peace out!

Sup guys,
    Name is Brad, but you can call me Risp (short for Rispearski, a nickname from the old days).  I'm a 24 year old Paramedic from Rochester Hills, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit).  I've been a Traceur for years without knowing what it was, and only recently (past couple of years) have I been training the way I should be.  I'm very heavily into nutrition, conditioning, and my recent engagement.  I spent four years in the Navy working as a weapon system tech for the burliest jet of them all, the F-14, and had a short career as a search and rescue swimmer.
   I only have one problem: For all the great PK that can be found in Detroit, there are surprisingly few Traceurs that I know of.  In fact, I've never seen anyone interested enough to stop talking about it and DO IT.  I'm very eager to be the representative of APK in Detroit (DPK anyone?), and I welcome any of you to contact me with ideas, words of wisdom, or general advice.  Especially if you live in the metro Detroit area (go Wings!).  Thanks for the chance to be part of a truly progressive, and genuinely new sport and way of life.  See my thread on nutrition in the Diet forum.

Hey guys, I am from California and I basically registered here because I might be going out of state for spring break.  And I just wanted to be prepared to see which areas have Traceurs, lol.

Hey everyone,  You can call me M@ or Xnyper (X like in Xylophone ) or really whatever suits your fancy, make it creative. 

I've lived in Colorado Springs my whole life—all nineteen years of it—I'm going to college here too (persuing a master's degree in computer systems security).  Whever classes aren't too much I do some martial arts, which I've been doing since I was pretty little, and it's kept me in decent shape; since I discovered parkour I've decided to kick my fitness into high gear.  I've quit smoking, cut the partying down to a minimum, and I'm trying to work out every day.  I've been training PK for about a month.  Never (knowingly) met another traceur, but if anyone's jammin' in my area I'd love to tag along... get schooled as the n00b I am, it'll be fun!

My name is John Williams! I began my physical training like a month ago, so I'm still not that strong yet. I've been searching for people to train with in Buffalo, haven't had much luck. I go to the University at Buffalo, so if there's anyone in the area who wouldn't mind havin a noob kickin around I would really apreciate having people to train with! Otherwise, God bless yall! Peace!

It's going to be difficult, as I don't believe there are any traceurs at all in Buffalo NY to train with

Hey, I'm from Buffalo, NY. We should hook up and jam.

Traceurs,

My name is Logan (or Saint works), I live in the Northern Colorado area. I've been practicing Parkour for almost 4 months / all my life as the movements in parkour are things I've thought of and played with all my life. I am honoured to be part of a community of fellow "out-of-the-box" thinkers.  8)
