I’ve been practicing Parkour around my house…but I would actually like to learn it from a trainer and outside or in a gym. Would be great to find a group in my area that is orientated around Parkour, but so far I haven’t heard of any in the northern region of California. If I still can’t find a club/group/trainer in my area that’s close by, I’m still going to go to a gym and get a gymnastic trainer because those are somewhat similar and I want to get to know the basics before trying it outdoors. I’ve been watching tons of youtube videos on it and I am still amazed by it, can’t get enough of the stuff. 2 years ago

This sport is really growing in popularity – you can see it in the newest Scion commercial and groups like Urban Freeflow are really promoting their stuff.
So I’m in the media section of our local grocery store today and I say to my husband, “Why don’t they have any magazines featuring le Parkour?”
He replies, “What? Le what?”
“Parkour. PAR-KOUR. You know, perpetual motion? Always in motion? I made you watch videos of it not too long ago!”
I know he’s mentally flipping through his video catalogue – porn, porn, Monster Garage, more porn – nope, no le Parkour. So I drop the issue… but this gets me to thinking… do I really want to learn le Parkour, or do I want to start an official publication for it???
Is anyone else interested in this sort of thing? 8 years ago
