I'm 6 feet 2 inches tall and weigh roughly 180 pounds.

I think I'm a mesomorph :/

It's best to start by just running and practicing landing and rolls. Then work on precisions, jump height and simple vaults, and progress from there. Also, avoid drops for your first year.

Have fun out there and stay safe!

Welcome to the American Parkour Community!

You seem to know the basics, which is good. And check out teh Local Connection board for your state to see if there are any groups in your area, here:,54.0.html

Remember, take it slow, don't show off, and have fun!

Welcome! Tips? There's plenty.

Take it slow. Don't push yourself past your limits.

It's wise to not take drops past chest height in your first year.

It's about making one's self better, don't worry about what other people think.

And an important one: Have Fun!

Welcome to the American Parkour community! A few things:

Make sure you're not doing the "really big drops lol hauss(sp?)" parkour. If so, this is not the place for you, I'm sorry.

And are you kidding me? Is there a group in Indianapolis? It's a big city, I bet my left nut that it does. Look here:,58.0.html

Finally, enjoy yourself!

Dude! :D video or it didn't happen!

Don't have it on video, sorry. Still, it was pretty funny and actually surprised me. I didn't try to do the roll, it just came naturally.

I do feel the flow. I try to do everything naturally and let my body move fluidly. It's when I'm not doing Parkour and instead when I'm not and watching other people do all of this cool stuff, that I just can't do.

But when I do Parkour, I forget about that, and just move. I think I get it now.

The thing is, whenever I watch a video of real traceurs, I always get demoralized because I don't feel like I can do those things. I've trained plenty, but I still see all these people all of these amazing things, and if I tried, I'd just fall and fail.

I know Parkour is supposed to be about bettering ones self, but I still feel like I won't ever be very good.

When you fall forward on roller skates (stupid front brake!), roll, and keep on skating like nothing happened.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Ambidexterity
« on: April 23, 2010, 06:53:24 PM »
I'm not ambidextrous, but I can do most moves on both sides because when I started out - who am I kidding, I'm still starting out - I did it on both sides. The best way is to just start doing everything on both sides, before you become to accustomed to using one side or the other.

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: Donating Blood after working out

Asked my dad - 28 good years in the navy special forces..

he said depending if they drain you or not than you should be fine after about a day, just eat things that help your blood become more pure.. but your heart makes blood cells by the sec. so he said if your worried wait a day.. if not 5 hours after is all good
Actually, your bone marrow makes blood cells.

Still, good point. And most definitely do not work out AFTER giving blood. Horrible idea.

So, what's your real name, and how did you get such a ridiculous nickname?

No, I mean a literal gasmask. It's completely unethical to be honest though.
