Right, we all know how cool it is, i mean who wouldn't love to scale 8 foot walls and drop from 10 foot buildings? so why not post some of your lines and stuff here? share great spots, teach newbs to vault, whatever u want to!
nearly as gay as soccer
and gayer than singing
did you just use cool and newb in the same sentence
they are clearly a few sentences apart
I've tried stuff around my college campus, but I only feel comfortable going at around 3 a.m. so people aren't like "what the fuck is that kid doing?" I'm not sure where else I would go.
I am to scared to do any flips or rolls that aren't on a mattress. :suicide:

[QUOTE=bucketofshrimp;35636655]What do you suggest I start off with?

The parkour roll is different and means that you roll ACROSS your spine and not OVER it. Theres a couple of websites that will teach you this, i found learnmoreparkour.com covered it nicely, but you could also start off with the basic landing, covered again on learnmoreparkour, but this will mean you can take higher drops with less impact.

Plus down the motorway from me i have a parkour park! :D Usually parks are good places to train, collage campuses are good too, especially for vaults
Thanks I started learning the roll. I had went to the beach today and there was this long path that was just pure rocks and boulders. This may seem lame but I started parkouring on the rocks and boulders, I had did this to practice or test my endurance. It may seem lame and stupid but the majority of the boulders were slanted big time. Oh the pathway is thin and was going out into the ocean. So if I were to fall off, I would have fell into the water.

[QUOTE=bucketofshrimp;35699080]I know you said you haven't practiced in ages, but out of curiosity what are you able to do in free running/parkour?[/QUOTE] Only basics, A few high drops, Parkour roll, Safety vault, Lazy Vault (On a small rail and landing on sand) We're both learning :P
Oh good. I won't have to feel humiliated when I'm in this thread. I'm getting my roll down, but i'm always hesitant to do them on hard surfaces.
Can someone give me some good examples of parkour being useful in the real world?
