Hey Everybody,

I am a new to this and extremely interested and very determined to 'jump and roll' into the life of parkour, of which i kinda already have. And i would like a little help... someone to layout a itinerary, as in where to start (which has probably been asked a thousand times). Your response(s) very much appreciated!! :D

Thanks, Conner

I thought someone might ask.
I live in the USA. I know that this forum was designed for the English, but i couldn't find a law saying 'English only'. So i joined because the perspectives and ideas are very inspiring. Great work guys.
As for my ability... i am a beginning. I have been experimenting with movements, techniques, etc, on my own for about six to seven months - still no pro. Although, i have been able to become more fluid in movement.

So, to sum it up, need a little motivation, some direction, tips... that sort of thing.
If you have some, please reply.
Thanks,
ResePK

Hi Conner,

I'd recommend finding a group of people who live near you who practice parkour. When you're relatively new to parkour, it's much more productive training with others, and they can offer you help and advice on techniques etc. It's impossible to put together an itinerary, as how you train and what you need to do is totally dependent on your own abilities and objectives. Aim to accomplish something new every time you train though, and you'll be on the right track.

Boomshiva, I'd recommend coming to one of our regular sessions in Manchester. We'll be able to offer you much better advice there than we can online, and also help to get you started with some movements :)
