Hello! Good night! 

I have a group that makes videos and posts on youtube about skateboarding, bmx, breaking and recently released a video of parkour! 

If they have time, I would appreciate a look at our video and told me what you think! 

Thank you!

gammashuffler asked: Hey, I am someone who would like to get into parkour but don't really know where to begin. I am not that agile, and I am fat. Like 230 pounds fat, can you recommend something for me that is parkour related?


Hey Gamma

Start small and low impact, with balancing, quadrupedal movement, jumping, and safety vaulting.  These four very simple movements, paired with basic strength & conditioning exercises (body weight exercises), is a great point of departure. You’ll be building critical skills, such as balance, control, and body awareness, which will translate later into all of the more complex movements.

smarfiness asked: I'm trying to self train, any tips? I live in the middle of no where, but Im surrounded by trees, so that helps.


I think its really important to just stay open minded.  Literally anything can be utilized for Parkour, especially trees.  I grew up in the suburbs and attended college in the tundra, so I learned to make the most of both sparce & indoor conditions.  Benches, couches, chalk, curbs, all can be utilized.  I even built a vault box for my yard as well as a set of precision trainers & rails.  You can learn more about how to build your own equipment online—Sturdymade is a great resource, and there is also a great facebook group as well where people who build PK equipment talk together about how to build better!
