Hey everybody - just jumping in to make it 'official' here.  My name is Matt, and I just moved back to Charlotte from DC.  I'm also registered on the NCParkour.com forums under the same handle, so PM me there if you want my contact info, etc.

I'll be at the jams at Davidson tomorrow (10/17/07) and @UNCC on Thursday as well.

Matt

DCscot/Q:

Welcome to the scene! Have you checked out the Regular Jams Thread in the NC Jams board right here? That would answer your question a/b whether or not "anything is going on in the area", dude.

Thanks for posting up! New faces are always welcome. Join us as you are willing and able, man!

Hey my names Ray but i usually go by Rami (rhymes with tommy:P). I go to UNCG but live in stokes county near Sandy Ridge/Danbury (about 15 mins from Hanging Rock S. Park.)  I've been practicing PK 3-4 times a week for about 3 weeks with my brother and 2 other friends. Weve learned basic vaults and rolls and can do them pretty consistently.  If theres anyone in the greensboro or stokes county area let me know!

Hi, Mat & Mat's mom!

Wow, seven is a real young age! That's pretty interesting that he wants to learn Parkour, very cool. Are you looking more for traceurs (Parkour atheletes) in/around Asheville, NC, or more for tips/advice on how to teach Parkour to someone so young?

If it's the former, I personally don't know of any traceurs in/around Asheville, though. :\ I wouldn't be surprised if I were mistaken, however. :)

If it's the latter, off of the top of my head I know that gearsighted has young children, and I'm sure he teaches and has been teaching them for some time now. He might be able to offer some pointers. Send him a PM if you like. :)

Hey!  It turns out I do in fact have a login here.  I'm not a robot after all!

So, yeah... I'm over on ncparkour, but I just moved to Charlotte a week ago.  My enthusiasms include music, movies, sandwiches, and general skullduggery.

I'm really looking forward to getting out with some guys and doing some parkour.

Oh, and Mat/Mat's mom - be really careful about parkour that young, especially drops.  At that age, the knees and ankles have some developing yet to do and you don't want to do any damage.  Just FYI.

Hello people, I'm Marcus, but go by just about anything. I wanted to get into parkour because it seems like a fun way to get back and stay in shpe, without just running a set path and/or weight lifting like there's no tomarrow.

How's it going, Marcus? Welcome! We meet Thursday evenings at least, starting around 7-7:30 on UNCC's campus. Join as you are willing and able. :)

Parkour def is motivation to get in shape. The Parkour itself isn't quite so much as what gets you fit as does the conditioning FOR Parkour. If you wan't do do x "move", but aren't strong/flexible/coordinated enough, it makes you WANT to train so that you can. :)

Well I'm in Jacksonville right now, so I guess I can train and practice here until I can make it over to the UNCC area.

Hey!

My name is Andrew. I'm a pretty avid body builder, and I did Martial Arts for a while, but as of right now have no hobbies, so I thought it might be cool to try this.

I live in a town called Matthews which is a little south of Charlotte, and I'm 17 (but no, I don't have a license yet *sigh*).

Welcome, Corporeal and Andrew! Yea as you might have seen we run most Thurs's, and are starting to look at weekend jams, too. :D

Andrew:

I live in Matthews, too, cool! Do you go to a gym? Whereabouts in Matthews are you? I'm right across from the Presby hospital on 51.

JCC? We meet primarily on UNC-Charlotte's campus. If/when you want to go, we might could carpool. It's a solid half-hour drive up 485 from Matthews.
