I wish I was bilingual :P, but as I have said before, I just can't be good at everything ;).

That's my contribution to the bilingualness in the thread and a shout out to the foreigners.

Glenn Sunshine, near Hartford, Connecticut. My son Brendan, age 14, wants to get into Parkour and has some friends he's recruited as well. It looks interesting and fun, but at age 30 (base 16), I don't think I'll be doing a lot of heavy tricks.

nah... go with my trick...

I hear a lot of people start freaking out when they turn 29, but honestly I don't know why... 20,10 was really no big deal, in fact, I'll proudly turn 20,12 this year! :)


although 20,20 has me a bit worried... as does 20,20,10

:D

It's never too late to begin training, well unless of course you are 106, it might be kinda hard to sart at that age.  There are countless throngs of traceurs out there who didn't begin training until their 30's and 40's (note the over 40 - or even 30 thread). 

So I would say head out there and begin training, just know that there are many more things out there besides parkour (though maybe not quite as amazing (unless we are discussing ultimate frisbee)).  So just remember to keep an open mind while "devoting yourself" to it, and have fun.  ;)

Don't devote your life to PK. The whole point of parkour is to get to what's important, or escape from a threat.  So devote your life to something that's important, and use PK as a way to get there.
