Nice. They got a lot of good workouts there. I still didn't see any in my area and im not surprised. Its a crappy town. The closest is an hour away and i just don't have that kind of time to drive those distances.

Parkour requires a lot of stamina and core strength. Two things i don't have. I used to be a lot more limber but years of inactivity and age have me at a point where attempting any of those moves would land me in the emergency room. I wish there was a Parkour group around my area. I would definitely join.

I was in the same boat as you.  Last month I attended two parkour clinics at two separate gymnastics gyms.  I had a great time, and really learned how far I had let my body go, as far as core strength, and limberness.  Needless to say, the next day after each, I felt EVERTHING!  The  second time wasn't as bad, which tells me I've gotten stronger already.  I have a martial arts background, and used to be a lot stronger, and a lot more limber.  I want that back now, and will do what is required to have it once again.

Here's a parkour documentary video that I and my daughter give an interview in:  http://www.facebook.com/video/?id=762595356#/video/video.php?v=435756510356

At one of my parkour sessions, a young beginner joined us. He seem interested in my KSOs and said he often went barefoot. Two weeks later, he had a pair of Classics! Kind of a nice story! There seem to be more and more people in the PK community getting minimal footwear.

I used to do parkour/freerunning in shoes, but once I started learning flips, I would always go barefoot. Then I started to use my KSO's to flip in, and now, all my friends just tell me to flip and I'll do it. I do parkour barefoot now because of the increased balance and such. My neighborhood's no good for parkour, though Sad
