China (Guangzhou specifically)
« on: May 27, 2010, 07:29:30 AM »
Hello travelers and casual viewers. I hooked up with City Spanker (Guangzhou, China Parkour) for a gym session today. Since I've seen a couple other posts about China, I thought I'd throw out some resources!

China Parkour: Good for South China

Paoku.com: To be honest, I don't like this site as much because they're always changing the layout. Beijing and Shanghai practitioners should be easy to find, but I'm spending my time in the south. So I don't really know.

I like to use this site because of the handwriting input. I think it even explains stroke order. I'm just a beginner in Mandarin, so I have to look up lots of unfamiliar characters.

Bonus: Language education site by a teacher at the school where I'm studying

Hey, Tanya.

Nice seeing you doing your own research, my apologies for not helping you to find some Parkour groups in China.
Blame on my exams.

I'm off the hook now, so basically I can do whatever.
Send the requests, I'll be happy to fulfill them.

Still my Mandarin is sort-of limited.

You could use Google Chrome to help you translate those websites in English. I use it that sometimes, but bare with it since nearly everything that it translates doesn't make much sense. Like 跑酷 (Parkour in Chinese) is translated as Cool Running.
Parkour is like swimming around the city without water.
