I don't notice it either, probably due to adrenaline? Either way, people in school know I do parkour, so they dont jump to the conclusion that I'm a cutter.

Understand that this art has been created by few soldiers in Vietnam to escape or reach: and this is the spirit I'd like parkour to keep. You have to make the difference between what is useful and what is not in emergency situations. Then you'll know what is parkour and what is not. 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.

Few scratches I got about a year and a half ago. Looked a bit dodgey.

Hadn't any real trouble with my hands 'till a few weeks ago I was swinging on gym bars a bit too long and ripped skin lower down from where my hands were callused.

Ive never had any problems with my hands... i get a bit of skin lossage but never deep enough to create bleeding or pain. The skin just grows back tougher. A lot of my mates always loose big chunks of skin though when using the bars at the gym which impedes with their training obversely cos its saw and creates pain and discomfort in training but they're usually fine by the end of the week :P. The other thing we all get as well if from doing double handed climb ups on walls wrists usually get scrapped and scared but thats nothing that really keeps us out of training.

I had a pretty bad rip doing a lache last Summer. It got too big and tore the whole thing off. Bled for a bit but it was much better after 2 weeks or so. My hands are fine now. I just sand them down after soaking them in the bath for a bit. I never got cuts or anything, but that's because i've worn wristband for the past 4 years, (got a couple of embarrising tan line to show for it.) I notice my brother tends to get cuts and scratches on his wrist quite a lot though.

lol i remember filming you after you did that callum lol

but any way i think the longer you train for and the quicker/ more efficent your climb ups the less it happens and you will learn to adapt

like with everthing you have a problem....then you adapt.....problem solved...

My hands are on my arms
My hands arent on my elbows
My hands grew up on separate farms...
My hands cry themselves to sleep at night.
