Feel akward with this as my first post, but the FAQ and Rules links in the first post here don't work.  I'll see if I can find them elsewhere.
I decided not to put something deep here.  I'm in this for the physical aspect, the mental and spiritual are my own.

yeah, also the BIOs for the belles dont work (the links)


the only thing ive noticed about this site is a lot of people (judging by comments) are in this completely for the looks of it, and not actually just being able to get around faster...

i think theyre more looking for free running than parkour..

I'm from Austin Texas (www.texasparkour.com). I have just recently got involved in parkour. Initially, for my website but I am realizing how much I enjoy it so now it seems to be a regular activity.
Anyway, wanted to say hi.
Check out our site if you get a sec. Thx! www.rushmonkeys.com

i agree with shawn 7656, parkour/ free running is a disciplined activity, not just a show off fun game

yes im also very new to parkour. i'm 13 years old and im kinda skinny and in somewhat in a good shape, i run a mile in under 6 mins and 20 secs so i guess im about average when i go up against the other kids my age but anyways, i have a extremly short attantion span and im really suprised that i actually like doing this kind of stuff.....i also have learned how to do a money vault for some reason and i can barely do a roll. so yea is that normal that i can do that?

Well i think those are guidelines that we should follow always common sense stuff but yet people still read this and it clearly states what NOT to do and they still do it ridiculous

Oh I know about it haha. It is pretty extreme, more so *depending on what your are doing i.e. rail hoping or roof hoping* than skating, and football haha.

Rooftops are a no-no! ;D
And its very physically demanding, but in no way "extreme", it is safe!
