Hi, i'm Orion from Paso Robles CA. I've been training PK&FR spacific for 4 years now. I am the Y (YMCA) gymnastics & acrobatics director in Paso Robles. I am working on getting the Y to sponsor juniors parkour & freerunning comatitions. We have classes connected with the local homework clubs so that the kids attending after school homework club get 2 free 1 hour classes, their grades improve and they get in shape by means of parkour....Win-win!
I'm also in the process of starting "slorunner freerunning", a parkour & freerunning group sentered around youth fitness, safety, training for longevity, and general PK&FR promotion.

Patrick Witbrod- Rolla Mo parkour.

I've been training consistently for 2 years on and off for around 3 or 4 years. I and Smaran founded Rolla parkour. A group that I hope will be able to fix stereotypes floating about campus started by the people that practiced there for months without my knowledge.

 The're good people but they are gonna get people hurt. I'm working with there leader now and he agrees with me. So we're off to a good start. When they merge with us it will be about 15 people on a regular basis. Smaran, Bobby (the other leader) and I will be the only parkour teachers. The other people are mostly trickers that want to learn or people who have no experience what so ever.

Any questions or advice (pertaining to this post or my community) feel free to PM me.

Hi i'm Aero. Fewer know me as Ryan Fulmer. Been part of the San Francisco scenes since 2007.  Area Rep for SFPK.

I started the first SFPK Monthly Jams almost 4 years ago.  I was part of the founding BAPK group while I lived in the city.  Been coaching about 3 years in different programs since being handed my first class from Chris 'Kaos' Levesque from PKNA(<-before it ate itself).  I've been running the parkour program at Crossfit Marin for 2 years and have grown it to 4+ classes 7 days a week. 

The LETHALbeef and I started www.facebook.com/ParkourConnections in October 2010 to bring legitimate instruction and exposure to the discipline (aka insurance ;)).  We have been putting on demonstrations and workshops at local community events and schools since.  My dream when I first started parkour was to do a school assembly for elementary school children, right before recess.   Its been an awesome experience.

My latest obsession is traveling to the homes of other community leaders around the nation to see how all the different local groups function and exist. Really gives perspective on my own group and how we can improve or how to work through similar problems that have existed in almost every community.

If anybody out there ever wants to come visit the SFPK group or talk technique/conditioning or just talk ideas just shoot me an email Aero@parkourconnections.com

Alec have you ever trained with SFPK???  It looks like you are up in our area, Mattastic's SJPK atleast, so get out to a Monthly or come help coach The Beginner Class next monthhttp://www.sfparkour.com/forum/showthread.php?p=61333#post61333!!

Awesome Pat!

Hey Ryan. Kind of. I did attend the jams where Dan Edwardes did a session but nothing other than that with SFPK. The reason why this is happening now is that a lot of things are coming together in my life and I'm able to start restructuring it quite a bit. I was pretty inactive in parkour for a while for various reasons. Still training a little bit of this and that. I'm super excited these next few months, weeks even, to really get the ball rolling and accomplish what I've been seeking to do for years now.

Whoops, I guess I spend so much time working on local community stuff that I don't come on APK enough to see what's new going on. And Brett often has everything covered in terms of connecting with the wider national community...

In any case, I'm Albert Kong, AKA lethalbeef, currently an admin of SFParkour.com, formerly Area Representative for East Bay, even more formerly a local leader in San Diego PK with Lonnie when it was still part of PKCali. I run a weekly training session at UC Berkeley, organize the facebook group (Cal Parkour AKA Berkeley Parkour Collective), doing my best to create new leaders in that session, and participating in SFPK events. Several of us here are also working on building the new teaching programs, etc.

Nice to meet you all, looking forward to being more involved in this board and APK in general.

Hey I'm Jeremy, I'm located in Kenosha, Wisconsin. It's pretty much on the border of Illinois, and I have been training for 3 years now. I've been working on expanding the Kenosha scene for a while now. I'm all lonely over here, being so far away from Madison and without a car! D:

My name is Ryan, I train with anyone that wants to in the Phoenix Metroplex and I'm starting to organize meetups in both the East Valley and Chandler/Ahwatukee area via my website.
The idea is for anyone of different training regiments to come out, share technique and then play some tag.
Thanks
Will play Extreme Games of Tag for Phoenix Parkour

Visalia, CA checking in.

My name's Alex Jolly and I'm one of the two that run the Central Valley Parkour group (http://www.facebook.com/groups/214089668616685/) and page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Central-Valley-Parkour/108184775957214)  on Facebook and am currently in the process of creating our own website. I am the go-to guy for information regarding the goings-on from Bakersfield to Fresno. I'm also responsible for setting up any training sessions or planning large jams between the cities. I teach a weekly parkour class that I started at our local gymnastics center and will be starting up a free outdoor class once I get some portable trainers built.
