I've had fairly weak ankles (i sprained them a lot in junior school) but I do more walking now etc, so you just need to take things slowly and think seriously before you take any big jumps as in can I do this without serious risk or detrimental effects to my health.

So if you do acrobatics things on the street with no other goal than showing off, please don't say it's parkour. Acrobatics existed long time ago before parkour.
