I understand that, but as a rank newbie it's better safe than sorry.

They would offer protection from splinters, etc.

I can't wait, to represent Kentucky at the Special Olympics National Games! I think Parkour will benefit me greatly.

I have, with little success. If you know of any active traceurs in the Louisville area, please please point them my way. I've only been wading in the shallows of Parkour for a week, but I want to venture into deeper waters and that requires guidance from more capable people. I love the philosophy of Parkour as it mirrors my own philosophy about life and I would like to be the trailblazer for Parkour in Bardstown, Kentucky.

Why is Kentucky a void spot in the Parkour universe?

I can watch YouTube videos, but often not directly from a site. Sometimes I have to leave a site and go to YouTube to watch it.

Movement / Re: Techniques in Parkour

Similar to Golf, where cardigan movements done with correct timing constitute a swing. It isn't the movements that make a great swing but the smoothness and correct timing of those movements. Everyone's swing is different, because everyone has a different build. But most important is the mental side.
Parkour is like Golf in the fact that it is as much mental as it is physical, and both require the skillful navigation of an area strewn with obstacles. In Golf you advance your ball over and round the obstacles, whilst in Parkour you advance you body. But both require the mindset of "Destination or Bust",

Did my first semi-successful tic I tried it in a corner of two brick walls. Nothing to grab onto, but I didn't fall either, so I took a small step into the world of Parkour today and I feel good.

Me too, there's plenty of bourbon in Bardstown but no Parkour. I can't even find a gym in Louisville. Kentucky is a black hole in the Parkour universe. If there are any traceurs in the Louisville area, please leave a post.

Are Vans shoes good for Parkour?

Just did my first semi-successful tic-tac. It wasn't great, but I didn't beef eiither, so I'm happy .
