Hey, I'm John. I live in Westchester Il, which is about 15 minutes outside of chicago. I've just started getting into parkour so if there's anyone around here who wants to meet up let me know.

Hi,

Parkour is the greatest thing I have ever seen.

I just joined the forum a day or so back.

I've been learning about parkour since this past weekend. Believe it or not, I didn't even know it existed!

I did gymnastics in high school. I was ok. However, my mother said to me, "What are you going to do with it after high school?"

Well, it has kept me flexible.

I am a martial arts instructor. I also train police. I'm also just a tad older than most of you. Don't ask.

This week is week zero for me. I am looking forward to regaining some lost ground in my physical training. Parkour just looks like so much fun!

I will check in often to see what you are all up to. But, until I have something worthwhile to contribute I will mostly lurk and learn.

Marcos

Welcome, Marcos! Sounds like your gymnastics training has served you well! I'm just learning too. This is a great place to do that!

I understand wanting to lurk & learn for a while, but don't be a stranger. Glad to have you with us.

Thanks for the welcome.

Gymnastics did have a lasting effect. Glad to know I'm not the only new guy.

I'll be here regularly.

Don't worry about the age thing. It's a sad condition of our society that people are so fat and lazy, and give up exercise and athletic activities so they can watch television and get programmed.

Names Tomas I just started like a week ago and I live in LaGrange Illinois which is about 20-30 mins south of chicago. I am young yet(13) and competed gymnastics for about 3 years. I got bored of that and now I really want to start doing Parkour. I dont do Parkour with anyone on these forums but I have a friend that is interested and plan to start a club once I get to highschool.

Hullo,

Right now I'm living in MI, the US. I'm awfully to new to Parkour specifically but I've been doing tumbling, kickboxing, and other martial arts moves for three years and free-running about as long. Parkour though seemed so much more intense, specific, you know so I thought I'd try it out and I'm loving it.
