I saw Jump Britain when it was aired, I went out and jumped around the day and then got bored of it really. A few months later in October 2005 I decided I wanted to start training again and I met Callum, Timmy, Blane, Eddie and the other Leicester guys. I've been training over a year now and I've became so much strong and fitter. I've acomplished quite a bit, mainly thanks to those 4 guys. I'm now part of the 'official' Leicestershire Parkour team too - we don't do shows, workshops or anything like that, we're just a team that meet regularly and train together.

I train at the Leicester Uni, QE, Avenue School, my local areas and lots of other places (which are all shown in most of the Leicester guy's videos). In Leicester our training isn't just limited to vaults and jumps etc, Blane having been to Lisses has given us all an insight into training methods and alot of our training is based on strength related. Every Thursday night from 7pm-10pm is "Hell Night" - non-stop physical strength, endurance, conditioning etc led by Blane (basically, him killing us :P) related to the training he was shown in Lisses - we're up to week 10 now. Obviously we train our technical side alot too!

At school i was informed of dive rolls. I started practicing them, and after a bit of trial and error, i got them. I then started attempting front saults (all fails). My friend googled Dive Rolls or something, and it popped up "Free Running". We found that to be to much flipping, and then we heard of "Parkour". We researched it a bit more, and i found it was for me.

I started vaulting rails and such....

*Sorry for the bump*

I used to just hang around with two of my mates from school, and one night on Jack's birthday we went to go out for dinner. But thought we'd explore Orpington at night and one of my m8's Alex suggested trying that "pk stuff" and thats how it just stayed lol. Bad thing is though they both don't do Parkour anymore Alex quit a while ago and Jack recently stopped.

i started in october when i moved to london.

although, after seeing jump london me and my friends enjoyed vaulting this railing with a big drop on the other side and jumping off roofs for about a week, whenever we couldnt be bothered to skate.

and i had been able to do a backflip for about 8 months prior to moving to london. Along with other sh!t like gainer, frontflip and kick the moon.

I started out purely by chance, my friend and i were just climbing stuff and messing about and he said that there are people who do those kinds of things as a discipline and he told me it was called free running so i searched that and found urban freeflow as you do and then i heard that it was a rip off of parkour (not trying to start off anything) so then i searched parkour and found david belle's name mentioned quite a few times, i saw some of his videos and i just knew i had to start parkour because it was like nothing i had seen before.
I reject reality and substitue my own.
