It really doesn't matter. Train naked. Wear a suit.  doesnt matter much

Generally, the looser the better. I find that jeans work fine for me.

Basically, dont wear a straight jacket and you should be okay.

yah those are good things to wear, but for shoes by the sounds of u skate or somthing of the sorts, you know the tight pants thing.. arright sry, u dont want to wear skate shoes or converse beaceuse they dont give much support and u can get hurt easily just starting. try and get a pair of cheap running shoes and dont forget the basics of parkour/free running and if u dont know them then check out the forums a little you'll find them. o yah dont forget to stretch to because thats the most imp thing to start with.


check www.urbanfreeflow.com its a good site lots of info!
