i had a small stage about 2 months after starting (couldnt call it "training") parkour when my knee joints hurt a bit for a few weeks but i realised, and then changed my training attitude totally and from then on all my joints have been fine. :P

i started training when i was...14

to be honest, i dont think there is an age that people should start at, its more WHAT you are doing htat matters not WHEN.

well always was a monkey, climbing trees and my schools. nothing serious. always active doing anything that i thought was fun, which was alot... and then jump britain. well i was 18 at the time, never having done any flips - at almost 21 im corking and doubling and twisting like i never thought possible, jumping distances i previously thought impossible. i know a guy, at over 40 who last summer learnt his first wall flip. there is no age to start and no age to stop.
i think in this game u need desire, perservierence and the balls to go for it.

Yo, well I'm 13 - And I don't train very hard cause I don't want to damage any muscles or anything to deterr me when I'm older...

But I still train!

It's your joints you want to watch out for

You can still train really hard, jsut train really hard at the things that won't damage you. Do lots of conditioning, getting stronger, pullups, pressups, squats, sit ups, back raises, all sorts, go for runs, bike riding. And stay away from big jumps or drops.
That way you'll set yourself up for a lifetime of enjoying Parkour.

Not too sure if this is right but don't do too many laches either if your muscles aren't so big or used to the movement.

You are not to young to start. video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6135188268809742736 This is a group of very talented kids who are tracuers and are only 12-14 years old.
