The official "Introduce Yourself" Thread
« on: June 28, 2007, 12:11:10 PM »
Check it out! If you're new to these forums and/or to Parkour and are in the NC area, introduce yourself here!

Posting your name, age, location in NC, email/AIM, and a little bit a/b yourself is a good ways to start. :)

Haha first post of July.

Anyways my name is Cory. I am 15 years old (16 in august), I live in Waxhaw (Oh yes farm land...lots of it...) but I'm right next to Mecklenburg County. I started "parkour" about 3 months ago. I use the quotations because I have osgood schlatter so I can't do a whole lot and am told not to jump or run. Opps I don't listen... :P. Although I'm not very good at it I love it.

If you feel the need to contact me...

Hey, my name is Ryan and my friends and I have been PK training since February so... 5 months as of this post. I live in North Raleigh and just graduated Wakefield Highschool. My favorite place to train is NC state campus when i have time/gas for the 30 minute drive each way.

Yeah, I live near triangle town center (so long as we're using malls as landmarks) I've got 3 other friends who live near here who are serious about Parkour. One of them is doing summer school at UNCCH so he's actually there more than he is here. Another one currently has an injured finger and I'm pretty busy for awhile but we should get together for an NC state jam eventually.

It wouldn't let me modify my last post.  ??? Anyway Ryan, Pete, Jeremy, and I will be down at NCSU at 10AM. Johnathan might be coming. This is Pete's last jam with the Raleigh guys before heading home to England. Call my cell if you can come, it's (919)801-7075.

Hello everyone!  ;D
There are some who call me Paul. I am in the South Charlotte area and I am really quite new to the Parkour scene. But I have been studying Tae Kwon Do for 5 years.

Alright...
Yes, we are right next to Pineville.

Well kinda yes, I have one friend who runs.

Well I found out about Parkour from the glorious "Intar-web". I researched it a little and saw that it was really cool so I started trying some of the basics and such.

I am 16 and yeah we go to S.Meck HS. 8)

Hey guys. My name is Graydon. I'm 18. I live around South Park in Charlotte. email is gmiller4@bellsouth.net. I learned about parkour several months ago and I've been practicing the basics at home the past few weeks. I'm trying to get my friends involved, but I don't know that that will happen.

If anyone knows where I could pick up some size 15 Adidas Novas around Charlotte please tell me.

Welcome, Gmiller! It's awesome to see another new face show up! RE your friends getting involved: yea Parkour just isn't for everyone. A lot of ppl will think it looks easy or is just silly or something. IMO, they're intimidated by the prospect of moving differently from everyone else. ;) That's just one of many many reasons someone might be reluctant to try Parkour, though. If it isn't what someone is interested in, you can't force 'em, u know?

Well if you're looking for ppl to jam with, you got 'em right here. U checked out the Regular Jams Thread? We run pretty much every Thurs at 7-7:30 on UNCC's campus. Gotta jam tonight if you want to join. Interested?

As far as the Adidas Novas goes, is the problem finding Novas, or is the problem finding the size you want? If it's the size, you might have to go online for 'em, u know?

I guess the problem is finding any good shoe in that size. But I like Adidas shoes. They fit me well.

I'll try to be there tonight. Where exactly are yall starting on the UNCC campus? And where should I park to get there?

I doubt anybody will check the forums before the jam tonight so I'll jump in.

Graydon, We meet in Belk Tower around 7 or 7:30, like Cliff said.  If you go north in University City Blvd, you will pass the campus on your left and then you turn left when you see a Circle K gas station, thats John Kirk ave (i think).  I usually park in the first apartments complex to the right.  If you want, you can meet me there around 7:15pm or so. If you have aim, IM me at cronowarrior007.  Im not sure how to post pictures, but if you go to the uncc website, im sure you can find where Belk Tower is.

Gmiller:

In addition to Kaliastrih's directions which are great, here is a visual aid (Just ignore the "Park Here" part, tho. Used to park there, now we park here, which is the "first apartments complex to the right" Kali referenced.):



Give me a call at 704-576-5832 when you're near or if you need some assistance.
