honestly, my friend and I just started working out and practicing parkour around 3 weeks ago..so very very novice but my friend is good...ive been watching alot of training videos and more or less coaching him until i can lose a tad bit of weight and build my upper body strength up..i can do parkour and i do but i tire alot faster than him so i help him get better with my knowledge. add us on facebook: facebook.com/payne2225 and facebook.com/travisbowman23.

ps: i know a girl who goes to concord..but how long have you been doing parkour?
Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: Blankenship on December 07, 2009, 07:03:07 PM

Hey guys just thought I'd shout out that me and my bro have recently gotten into parkour. We're over here in Buckhannon. About 35 minutes from Clarksburg and an hour from Morgantown.

You should get him on here too. The more we get in WV the better.

Post by: MastaScrappy on December 17, 2009, 09:33:32 PM
Alright, I'll try and talk him into it. We just got back from college a couple blocks away from the house and found some good smaller spots for us to work aon until we get a good foundation to build from. Been a decent night.

Yo, I'm Tim.  I'm in Inwood.  Anyone up here in the panhandle? lol.

I've been into parkour for around a year.  But I haven't had anyone to train with, and I've been really busy lately, so my skills are lacking...

Woah, crazy man, Summersville? I used to date a girl that went to Summersville >.> It's a nice, rural town. I could see some nice nature training through there.

Marshall eh? I have a cousin going there. I wish the town had more to :( it but since it doesn't I normally train at the playground and up on the mountain.

Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: Ian Vidal on February 01, 2010, 05:45:04 PM
Actually on campus there are some pretty sweet spots. Most of them are towards the middle of the campus and around the dorms.

Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: vincshad on February 02, 2010, 06:33:28 AM
I haven't been on the campus for quite some time :(
Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: Ian Vidal on February 05, 2010, 07:31:30 AM
Well, you guys should visit, and send me a message on here when you do. I'd love to meet up with some people. The lack of motivation has really deterred my training and overall practice. Could use some other people here asides from doing it myself...I get embarassed lol. Also, how old are you Vin and what high school do you go to?
Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: vincshad on February 06, 2010, 05:21:12 AM
I'm home schooled (allows me to go to cities and train and still go to school...) and 17. The snow has deterred my training..
Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: Ian Vidal on February 06, 2010, 07:56:45 PM
Word man. I have some buddies that used to live there...I was up there once during late January last year and I got snowed in. I couldn't leave town for 2 days haha.
Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: Blankenship on February 06, 2010, 08:41:03 PM
Well I have to head home for spring break and I was going to try and stop in and mess with the campus for a while if I could but I heard the security has gotten massively strict since my time there a few years back.
Title: Re: Roll Call WV
Post by: Ian Vidal on February 07, 2010, 05:20:00 AM
Not from what I have seen but I haven't personally trained on campus myself either so.....

Post by: Austin "iSHREDbanez" on September 12, 2010, 12:44:57 PM
Where is this Ridgeley located?

Looks like it's up near Pennsylvania/VERY nearby Maryland. Google maps says its 3 hrs 45 min from Charleston; 4 hours 36 minutes from Huntington.
