parkour was invented in france, if your anywhere near lisses you shouldnt have too much trouble finding other people.

I was thinking that. Best place to learn! Knowing people ahead of time is always nice, especially when you don't speak French very well...or at all (as of the moment)

Well, you can make your way to Lisses(I dont remember the train routes...evry train?)

Or else, tons of people train in La Defense on the red line.  this area is great, and there are always a tonof people training there.

I'd suggest making a post on Parkour.NET since there are a lot of Frenchmen there.  I'm sure there're some English-capable Frenchmen who'd be more than willing to train with you.

Danke. I will. I hope to get to a lot of the country while I'm there so I'll make my way (hopefully) to Lisses.

When i wen't last summer, I saw absoloutely no one doing parkour. I did some in a small down and the people were looking at me like i was crazy. I pretty much everyone whi i talked to, had almost or no idea what parkour was. I spoke to friends that i have there who live in all parts and pretty only one knew of parkour but did not know anyone who did it. It mught be a fluke, and i wasn't in the right parts where it is most prevolent, but it is not as wide spred there as we think it is.

No I asked some french exchange students and they didn't know what I was talking about at all.

I just wanted to say I am officially going to Thailand. Just a bit different eh? Well same question, if anyone knows anyone in Thailand, tell me!
