So, either you just finished reading the group profile in facebook that I sent out to thousands of you, or you just so happened to stumble in here by mistake. Anywho - this is the introductions thread. Just state who you are, where you come from, why you think you like parkour, etc. Dont need to get personal if you dont want to, I'll start off  ;D

Name: Leon or Paul - most peeps call me Leon
Location: Harper Hall woooooot
Im a CS major, been doing parkour for 3 years, and I THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!

Hey guys!

My name's Cliff, and I'm part of the Charlotte group. Wince/Saylor is down here for the summer, too, which is awesome... well it will go back to being awesome when he gets back from his hiatus or whatever. :D

Anyway, my parents live in Roanoke, and my wife and I go up there to visit periodically, usu over a long weekend or something. So when we go up, I'll probably say something in here and see what can kind of jam can be gotten together, you know?

Great! Well take 'er easy, everyone. Ttys.

What's up VT PK!!!

My name is Stephen (Stix) and I love Jesus.  I am originally from b'burg and now living in c'burg.  I've been doing pk subconsciously now for about 20 years, consciously since march-ish '07.  I plan on taking full advantage of VTPK training over the next couple of years so that when i become a millionaire and build my house around pk, I will be able to make it from the living room to the bathroom without any "accidents".

Hey all!

My name is Matt. I live in Lee Hall. I'm thinking about majoring in Computer Engineering and maybe CS too. Don't know yet.

Anyways, I've been interested in doing parkour for some time and have no real experience and have been trying to find a way to learn. I made a facebook group not knowing there was one up already. I would like to get really involved in parkour here at VTech. Obviously, I need to get some experience first. I played Ice Hockey since 2nd grade so I'm not that out of shape. Wanted to play here but the tryout schedule and my academic schedule did not get along. I have been looking for a way to get more exercise since hockey isn't an option anymore and Parkour has really sparked my interest. I cannot exactly remember how I got into it, but I found it really interesting and would love to get involved.

My IM is sk8snpucks

Thanks!

Hey Matt I live in Harper Hall by west end. I'm a CS Major  ;)

Come to one of our newbie sessions monday nights at 10PM and introduce yourself! Read the schedule thread and some other parkour articles here on APK. Our facebook group is called Parkour VT.

SEE YOU SOON!!

O yeah I have looked at many of the sites and am actually starting the workouts on the APK website.  Yeah def. just got the first EngE test back ... haha I got owned.  Just need to study a little more in advance :P  I have also joined your facebook group already too :).  I am getting a few of my friends to do Parkour with me (or at least start doing the workouts with me).  Looking forward to coming to one of the newbie sessions.  Definitely need Parkour to get away from the studying and release energy because as of right now, I am about to explode :P.

See you soon!

~Matt

I figure it's about time I got on here...

I'm Frasier, aka Frasier The Razor, aka Razor.

I was introduced to parkour/freerunning by a friend here at Tech last year but regrettably did not join in until another friend back home showed me the ropes over the summer. So here I am in full vigor!

I've always liked jumping, vaulting, climbing, and going off the beaten path. Efficiency is also a plus. I come from a background of distance running the second half of high school, and not much hardcore athleticism before that, so now I like to stay in shape and I'm always trying to get stronger! I've been into other sports such as basketball and ultimate, but I see parkour as something more practical, something that comes more naturally, and something I can be more dedicated to as not just a fun sport but almost a lifestyle.

My style: Clumsy :D ...My main goal is efficiency--I might throw in a little flair here and there but nothing extreme.

Hello,
I was accepted into VT recently, and I'll be joining everyone this fall. Over break, I visited the campus.

I've been moderately interested in Parkour since I first heard about it (It was a long while ago, several years at least) but I haven't thought about actually starting it until recently. I did competitive Gymnastics for most of my life, and sicne I can no longer continue, I need something to keep me fit, active and happy. When I visited campus, I noticed that the surrounding area might be good for this sort of stuff.

In any case, I'll want to sign up when I arrive. I have no experience in Parkour proper, but I do like jumping, climbing, landing, etc. I'd very much like to keep this up. I'm extremely happy there are people interested in this at VT.

So is there anyone I can chat with, or anyone I need to talk to? I'll browse the 'boads here and see what I can find. Currently I'm located at a College in Kentucky, which despite being on top of a hill, has (seemingly) little one can do with parkour. Good thing there are some staircases. There is a small cliff where it's easy to practice landing on a springy flowerbed, and I intend on practising on rolling and landing there.

In any case, I'll hope to see people this fall.
(If interested, I'm pursuing Aerospace Engineering, I've been accepted to the honors college, but not necessarily Honors housing yet. I'm good at maths and science.)
