Last i counted, when someone called the police, there were 7 squad cars, two firetrucks, and three ambulances. There are more cars every time the cops get called. I do everything solo, so i just run away and shit. i never got caught, nor do i plan on getting caught. So if the cops bother you, ignoe them, and when like squad cars come, get ready to use what you practised in the real world. (getting away from cops) :twisted:


You sure that's wise? They're just gonna think you're up to something...

im shure they were for me. i practise parkour to be able to train my body. i PRACTISE parkour. the cops wont stop me from doing it, by them chasing me only makes me train harder to get away. So, them chasing me is a good thing, as it motivates me.

I understand you feeling frustrated that some people in authority, sometimes have a less than friendly attitude towards people training parkour, but adopting a 'them and us attitude' will only exacerbate the situation. Maybe next time, instead of running off, try talking 'politely' to them about the wonders of parkour.

Also have you considered the possibility that there are cops who do parkour?

I dunno about English laws, but in here, Estonia they can penalty you for not obeying their orders to stop.
Theres no right or wrong choices, just some are more useful to somebody.

If you run from the police then they will think you've been breaking the law and and they will try and make things difficult for you.

If you speak to the police you can explain what you're doing and then they will know that you haven't been breaking the law and leave you to practise in peace.

If you have been breaking the law, well, you're an idiot. :)


It's not wise to intentionally annoy someone. It's much better to have people as friends than enemies, and that goes for police, security guards or whoever.

Normally in trainning when i go trainning i just explain what i am doing, if the police tell me to move on the chances are i am on private property like a uni or something like that. so i move on but i geuss if you want respect, you have to give respect but i have noticed lately in public areas such as queen gardens hull we don't block walk ways or anything like that but they still see us a problem at times. But do you think at times police move us on as they want to be seen to be doing something ?
