Sup Connecticut (newbie, just need help getting started)
« on: January 22, 2010, 12:40:19 PM »
I'm new to parkour, however I am coming into the sport physically fit.



Any really nice spots to practice in CT?

What do you do at a "Jam"?

Are there any groups out there that practice as a team?



Thanks in advance for any tips/advice ;D

This board isn't really that active for new england guys, I'd check out new england parkour. I think new haven has some really good spots but you should definitely check out nepk.

hey guys, I'll be moving to the Groton / New London area sometime in the near future and was wondering what the parkour scene is like in CT. I'm from SC were I've trained for close to 4 years and have been an active member of Overflux Southeast Parkour. Also, I lived a year in Houston, TX where I trained with Houston Parkour and TXPK.

Hey, Hector. I'm Jake. I live in Stratford as well. I usually hang around the Public Library. While there isn't much places to do Parkour, I've been making do with what I have. Since I am banned from doing Parkour at the library (or else, Quote, "severe legal action will be taken place." End quote.) When it closes the back is free to train.

I wouldn't say 'great'. I'd say teetering on mediocrity.

Kyle M... thanks for getting back to me quick, sorry i didnt check the forums sooner.

Weve got a group of 3-4, somewhat starting out.  Itd be sweet to get together, train and just chill.  Ill send you a message with my cell number and we can figure something out if you want.

the new haven green is a good spot to hit up... so is stratford high school if that easier..... i ussually start at the flagpole on the new haven green then move around to the government buildings... security doesnt like it too much but they cant do anything about it unless your doin something illegal....
