i say go to a gym, find a spotter(preferably knowledgeable and non-A*hole), and progressing step by step. I remember there's a pretty good tutorial by ryan something on youtube.

Make sure you block is solid before you move on to bteist that will take some of the fear away.

you need to be able to B-Kick Easily before you can B-Twist, Try to do a martial arts aerial, you will most likely to a good B-Kick
also i would recommend learning a tornado kick first as well

If you think about how to do the Butterfly kick and Tornado kick at all before trying them, you should land them first try


I like Tricking and Free Running, i don't think i actually do parkour, because i do it for fun and self expression, which would change the term to free running.
