This is a Document that we created off of the Parkour.com group.  Enjoy!  However, you have to SEARCH for emails.

Parkour And Freerunning / List of Organizations
« on: September 12, 2011, 12:30:03 PM »
I think it would be great to have a list of emails of all the organizations out there.  Anyone have access to that?  I know Parkour.com has a group one, but I have been sifting through about half of 1500 and 3/4th of them dont even exist.  Anyone?

Parkour Federation
info@parkourfederation.org

Texas Parkour

We had them on our list for sure!  We are currently drafting something similar to my post here for leaders all over the US.  Anyone else?

@mark I have already sent information to them (Majestic Force and Parkour Generations) about the project, no responses yet.  We will do whatever we can to make this the largest community possible.  As I stated before, we can not do this alone, it will take everyone. Also, Mark you received a information to vote and still have not, voting is cut off today.  Contact me if you need the info again.

That being said, please contact us if you have an organization you wish to be involved in the early processes!  You can contact us right here in this thread or parkourfed@gmail.com

@ashleyMcC, @Shay, @ScottB Email sent!

@Alec your ability to look more official in the eyes of government and other programs is the hugest purpose we have for this program.  Lets all work together to make this possible.  We have plenty of people working on that, and your addition and information would be great!

Parkour And Freerunning / Re: New Organization to Legitimize Parkour
« on: April 30, 2011, 10:54:25 AM »
Dont get me wrong, the people in the WFPF are amazing athletes but It says right on their banner A Parkour Social Network for People who Move.  But honestly, they are just a performance team.  I dont know if they were ever suppose to be anything different.  Let me know if you know something ;)

@Scott B & Shay Glad you would like to be on board.  Again, email us along with your long impressive list of skills, ambitions available times and we can put to work and even voting soon.  Thanks again.

@Joshua Sikes Right.  WWF does not rule the forest, they help protect it and lobby to make a difference ;)

@Mark We would love to get together to really make a WORLD WIDE organization, but we have chosen to stay small, until we get the influential people that we need.  That being said.  If we can't (10 pushups for saying that word) get this off the ground in at least a couple states or in the US, it means, that we don't need it, at least right now.

@Joe Brock We are writing in that members of the organization will have as much voting rights as any other practitioner.  You have a vote.  The will be guided by the practitioners.  If that does not seem to be happen...I say REVOLT!

Parkour And Freerunning / New Organization to Legitimize Parkour
« on: April 29, 2011, 08:39:13 AM »
Currently a group of us from around the US are starting a new Non-Profit, to help continue the Parkour philosophy in a way that is conducive for everyone that trains Parkour.  We would like to highlight Parkour specific campaigns such as Leave No Trace, Building Parkour parks by working with local communities/governments and one of our favorite, community creation.  Having trained myself for over 6 years here in Texas, we see communities come and go.  They grow or do the opposite, hurt the foundation of Parkour our just themselves.  The non-profit will strive to put information for all of the campaigns out in the world.

Many of the groups and people already involved with this project have been inspired by and trained with Parkour Generations and Yamakazi time and time again.  PK Gen and Yamakazi teach proper techniques, they show the heart involved in making the discipline great and they bring great legitimacy to Parkour everywhere.

We wont be able to do it without you.  We need you, the community to stand behind ideas and become a part of the cause, if not this one, any cause that helps Parkour.  We would like members of this community and admins of the community to share their thoughts, good or bad (honestly) on a community based on these ideas.  We are already talking with American Parkour to find what they can donate to the program.  They have donated time, Thank you Mark, and their wonderful hotspot map.  The website will include information for all communities.  We will have an academic section for students to use as references on school projects.  We will have maps of where to train and contact people in your area.   Most of all our campaigns will show you how you can become a part of making Parkour important in your city.  Do you have something to offer, donate to the cause that you feel everyone should have access?  Parkour Injury articles, Student Papers, tutorials etc.  Bring them.

In return you will become apart of another community here in the US that will bring legitimacy on a local, state and national level.  We are currently finalizing mission statements, campaigns and the guidelines for the organization.  If you would like to become apart of the grassroots, let us know.

Email - parkourfed@gmail.com  Thank you.

National Jams / Re: PKUSA 09-Texas- Austin-June 25th-June 28th

MORE INFO*

17 or YOUNGER must have a waiver signed in order to step foot onto the gymnastics floor.  No waiver will be required for the jam itself.  We will try and get these available online as soon as possible (not in my hands)  :)

FLIGHT  Try to fly into San Antonio International Airport (its going to be cheaper)  If/When purchising your tickets let TEXAS PARKOUR know what times you plan on arriving so that we may pick you up from the airport.  Very important that you let us know very well in advance.

Also, TEXAS STATE is in San Marcos.  We will be in San Marcos on Sunday.  Let us know if you are planning on flying into Austin.  We can try and get you a transport.
