Missouri / Anybody in Springfield MO?
« on: January 09, 2015, 11:12:24 AM »
Hello peeps... My family is traveling the U.S. for the next 4 years and our first stop will be Springfield MO!  We will probably stay there about a month so I would absolutely LOVE if I could meet some fellow Traceures!  (I actually have never met someone who does parkour in my life...) Respond If you may be able to meet up from Jan 23rd to Like Feb something...!

Training Journals / Adventure of a Lifetime Training Journal
« on: January 07, 2015, 08:46:03 AM »
Hello fellow Traceurs! Welcome to my training journal. Anyways, for the past year (2014) my family has been working on a partnership with Convoy of Hope a super big international Humanitarian-relief organization, and now we have officially joined Convoy of hope and will be traveling all over the United States for 4 years. We are leaving on January 19th. As a Traceur all of this traveling will present a HUGE opportunity to meet with fellow Traceurs and train in many different places. I am super excited to get moving and traveling the U.S... Like really excited!

Now about myself. I am 15 years old and have been doing parkour for 4 months now... I have known about parkour for about a year I think, and I am home schooled (of course... how else would I travel the U.S.).  Sadly when I was younger I had a major injury which will haunt me my whole life. I am still trying to recover from it. I fell 25ft from a tree and broke my hip in 2 places and tore my abdominals. Because of this injury I have had many problems getting started on parkour but I am slowly rehabilitating.

Anyways, Here is my my “Before” list that I will update every once in a while.
1. 8 second Handstand
2. Perfect Cartwheel and round off
3. Almost have handspring
4. Good at Kong and Kash Vaults
5. Don’t have Dash vault yet
6. Medium at Cat grabs and kip ups
7. Front Flip off of elevated objects
8. No other flips yet… even off of elevated objects
9. Know almost all basic parkour moves…
10. Medium flexibility

Full Center Splits

Full Butterfly Stretch

Stretching those quads

Oh... And I have full wall splits and almost full Side splits... In case you were wondering... :D
Well... Thats it!  Can't wait for this amazing adventure!

Injuries - Discussion / Fractured Hip... -.-
« on: November 20, 2014, 07:38:39 AM »
So 2 weeks ago I fractured my hip when I jumped off of a 17ish foot wall and rolled but did not get curled up enough so... i hit my hip and fractured it.  I just figured out today.  Anyways, what I am wondering is... what should i do?!?!  My life revolves around exercise and parkour now (I started 3 month ago) and Idk if there are any exercises I can do with a fractured hip.  If u can think of any exercises I could do that would be great!  Thanks...

Parkour And Freerunning / Whats a Good Simple Definition of Parkour?
« on: November 13, 2014, 08:37:21 AM »
So when I tell people what sports I do I tell them parkour and their like "What is that?  I have heard of it but I dont really know what it is."  What do I tell them...?  It does not sound right when I say "Its like uhh... hard to explain.  Its more than just running around jumping on things, but Idk how to really define it."   So what should i say?  Thanks,
Micah
