I just have some on my shins.  About three on each side that range between 1 and 3 inches.  If they happen to start fading I usually accidentally get a new one to replace it lol.  They aren't super visible under my leg hairs though.  I have had several REALLY close calls that could have been more serious, and one really bad fall where I felt like I had internal bleeding.  Did I two foot rail precision, the one I took off from bent (rusty), so I didn't quite go far enough, my toes slipped off the bar I was trying to land on, and I fell down and the bar smashed across my pelvis/bladder.  Oh man.  It was when I was relatively new and I was right in front of my mom lol.

I too have a crescent shaped scar on my chin from getting bitten by a dog. But it's on the left side.


I honestly have one major goal in life, and I will do whatever I can to accomplish it.

None, I am very safe when I train the worst I have every experienced is fainting because of a botched precision.

FAINTING!?!?!  What do you mean botched precision?

Lots of precision bail scars, jeez, I'll be sure to just sack myself with a rail instead of bailing xD.

It's because when you sit (not on a chair) and fold your legs, you constrict your leg's blood vessels. Then when you stand up quickly, the blood rushes down your legs, leaving less blood circulating in your brain, leading that feeling of fainting.
It happened to me all the time. one time I lied down for 2 hours, then stood up quickly, fainted, woke up 2 seconds later then my head started hurting. ow.

EDIT: I had minor scars on my right elbow from rolling.

god does that suck when youre trying to grab something above your head...

in school i did a one step wall run to a pipe on the ceiling, as soon as my foot came off the wall i blacked out for a second and woke up on the ground with sharp pains in both elbows...

i went from sitting to doing this so probably my fault, lol

Only prominent scar I have is on my shin. It's more of a dent... I was practicing my balance on top of a wooden bench before my workout. I went to get and my right foot slipped. I hit my shin really hard, hopped over to another part of the park, and looked to see what I had done. I had a white area a little under an inch wide. After around five minutes, it started bleeding. Apparently, I hit it so hard that it compressed or something to where the blood couldn't get out. Hurt too bad to do any of the landings my training that day required, so I hobbled home. Now I have a half-inch scar on my shin that creates a little dent in my leg.

i realized i forgot to post my scar stories, lmao


the only bad one i have is on my knee. i was konging over a railing that was on an angle (so people wouldnt sit on it) and i smacked my knee on it, having to land on one leg was turrible...

So far no scars from parkour yet. But I do have a couple of scars from other random stuff, wanna hear about 'em? Great! ok the first is from when I was like 6 and my 4 year old brother had taken the floor vent covers(like they have in mobile homes) out of the slots in the floor and I was getting out of my sisters computer desk chair and I had my eyes closed for some reasone and I fell through and got two scars up my right shin one of them was about 3 inches long and the other about 5. and the other is from onther was from when I was like 8 and I was trying to watch my brother play video game on his game boy and he wasn't in a good mood so he kicked me in the HEAD and i fell backwards and smacked my mouth on the corner of the coffee table and split the left side of my mouth open. And he wasn't even sorry. the other is more recent I was helping my dad lay some tile( I was trying to earn some extra cash) and he had just cut a fresh piece of tile in half (so it look like a tri-angle thingy) and accidently stabbed with in the forearm with it. now that one is wierd cuz when I get really worked up or something it puffs up and gets red. and the other was from where I wasmobbed by yellow jackets and one of the little buttholes stung a dent in my skin.(but another flew up my brothers pants and stung him on the butt lol)
I don't have any idea what I'm doing, but I do it anyway.

i have a firm no tolerance policy for falls bad enough they can hurt me.

i have however had simple scrapes and a few deep cuts but, nothing that required any hospital visit or substantial time away from training.


my mind is constantly moving, one day my body will be strong enough to keep up.

Small scar on my shin from training with shorts on and missing a precision jump, twisted ankle from landing on a slippy patch of grass and that's about it...Oh and my gf who is sitting behind me says " You don't get scars from parkour, you get them from effing up "

I just got my first noteworthy injury today. I did a wall-run/wall-jump to a ledge, caught on, slipped, and tore open my hand. I'm actually really happy about it, and I don't have to explain why, because you all know why. It's a traceur thing.  ;D

I wouldn't really call it a scar, but I can't support as much weight on my left arm than I can on my right due to an injury from a bailed reverse vault.
