Need help to start parkour for 14 year old
« on: December 29, 2015, 04:59:27 PM »
I'm 14, and don't know how to start parkour. Any ideas? I live in Garner, NC, near the  capital Raleigh. Is there any specific group or teacher that can teach me?

Look up American Parkour tutorials, Tapp Brother tutorials, Jesse LaFlair tutorials all on YouTube. You don't need a group or certified teacher to do and learn parkour. Start with rolls and landing properly, then move on to ground precisions and small drops(i'm talking like 2 foot drops and that is it, make sure you land quietly and roll for good measure. Do it in the grass) Next you want to learn some basic vaults like the Safety Vault and Lazy Vault.

If you have anymore questions let me know.
