Title: How bad do we suck?
Post by: Metu Fury on January 23, 2006, 04:58:59 AM
Do we all just suck or are we all too lazy to post? I dont think that we "all" suck, matter of fact, I dont think any of us suck. So why wont anyone post?? Did someone else have to do it first? I'll be that guy. So everyone, start posting. Lets try introducing ourselves. Im John, Ive been doing Parkour seriously for about a year now. Ive climbed things all my life so a few years ago I started rock climbing. I was visiting when I saw a link for Parkour, I clicked and became sucked in to the world of free running. Im from this little state called Connecticut (anyone heard of it?  ;)) Thats me.

Yea I hear you.

I'm just getting started though, and I was beginning to think that I'd be having to make a trek up to Boston every weekend I could when the weather clears up to get in contact with anybody. Glad to see there's someone near heres. I really haven't done much of anything and am just looking for time and people to get going with. SNOW ARRR! Dang...  :P I would be fine for a bit on my own but I live in that little town part of CT down southwest. Nothing but trees and flat asphalt which is no fun at all seeing as there aren't even any worthwhile boulders to scale, and I LOVE rock climbing btw.  :D Friends used to call me "goat kid" or something to that nature. Can't say whether I suck or not yet, as I only found out about parkour a few days ago. Yet I'm flat out STOKED to try some stuff next weekend or something.  ;D Man, nothing has crossed my mind but parkour since. Click, boom, world goes numb for a minute or two and then it hits you. DANG, someones been holding out.

So! Nice to meet you.  :)

Ever since seeing Parkour on the discovery channel I have been in love with it; in my mind.  I've never actually done it.  It has either been too cold or I have been injured.  However, my entire life I have said to people that if I didn't look so foolish I would run everywhere (though I am by no means a runner, more of a soccer player). Being that I have recently moved back to CT from AZ, would someone please show me how and/or where people from CT practice.  I currently live in New Britain but often travel to Groton.

Honestly I am kinda surprised to see anyone from Conneticut interested in Parkour - but perhaps I just live in the wrong area. Name's Zen, what most people call me because I am the only person in 50 miles that isn't either Protestant or Catholic. In a way I have been doing PK for a while, without ever realizing it or giving it a name, because the cops in my area don't seem to have a sense of humor. It was during one of these impromptu "parkour-but-not-parkour" sessions with a buddy of mine that I even learned PK existed. He was on the other side of a chain fence down an alley, the black and white right behind me, and he was trying to pull the chains up so I could slide under. Instead I kicked off of a dumpster, ran up the alley's wall, and easily cleared the fence. We ran on for a while, all the time practicing my impromptu parkour. When we were in the clear he turned and asked me how long I had been doing Parkour? I asked him what Parkour was. Ever since I have been learning what I can and seeing how it adapts to the style and skill I already have.

I feel I should point out that I am not that bad of a guy. Buddhist, so most illegal activities are off bounds, and a clean living advocate (the only teenager in my town that doesn't get high). But I DJ (often to the dismay of neighbors), I PK (to the dismay of apparently everyone), and have a habit of protesting and tossing bricks through the windows of GAP and Starbucks (to the delight of underage workers in Indochina). I live in South Eastern Conneticut, so I hit Mystic, Stonington, Groton, Waterford, and parts of Rhode Island. Unfortunetely my friend that got me into this (Tom) doesn't live around here and I have had to bring up my other friend Sean (a.k.a Seanstah). He is capable but often not interested... and my slightly younger brother is interested but not really capable of keeping up with us. If anyone ever wants to get together in the area, my e-mail is ''.

Eh, parkour kind of stinks around Conneticut since it is all woods...unless you live in a large city.  I live near Danbury/Newtown and there are NO places here to do it.  Unless you want me to climb on my school roof and get arrested.

yo i'm from a place near Danbury,  Ridgefield. where are you near Danbury? You from bethel Hungazn?
Also ZenRevolt i have a similar experience in parkour, i didnt even realize that i was doing it, i really just got stuck in these situations where i applied something like parkour to get out. one time my i got locked in a fenced yard with a rogue dog and had to get out by jumping over this 7 foot fence luckally there was these wood frame work on the fence other wise o would have never go out, in retrospect the dog probably would have not done much but i was scared shitless anyway. I also sometimes find myself looking at building trying to see how it would be possible to get the top of them.

The woods are a great place to train. You have no idea how lucky you really are.
