Noob from Milwaukee, WI
« on: September 24, 2009, 06:23:33 PM »
Hey guys.  I just recently got into parkour and free running and I absolutely love it.  I am extremely proud of my first accomplished skill, the kong vault, which I can do length-wise over a picnic table. 

Thank you thank you.  :D

Anyway.  I'm trying hard to find some people in my area to train with, so if you are game to take a 13 year old kid under your wing that would be great. 

Thanks!

Congratulations on a nice kong, and welcome to APK!
I'm also from wisconsin (sadly, no one in my town), check the Local Discussion part of the forums to find people in your area. Pretty sure there are a few traceurs and traceuses in milwaukee.

Good luck training!

Thanks

My only problem though is that my parents don't exactly support my training.  They think everything is so dangerous.  Even my kong.  They don't understand that what we are doing is an art.  Or that we train like crazy before we even attempt anything dangerous.  I just wish I could explain that to them.

Hey thanks, that's great. 

Today I talked a little about parkour and free running with my dad.  I explained what it was all about.  he actually seemed pretty cool with it. 

But I will definitely be showing this to my mom.

In the meantime though I will continue training when she isn't home.
