I would really like to get into parkour because I am trying to increase my physical abilities and I think parkour would be the best way in reaching that goal. From what I hear and seen it is a high risk and physically demanding sport that also has a lot of grace to it. The thing is I am overweight and my top running distance is a little bit over 3 miles in about 28-30 mins. I'm very flexible thanks to the martial arts training when I was a kid.

I always thought parkour was the reserve of former gymnasts, and was still too thinly spread to generate a group in my city. Then i found that not only does my country have a national body, but their state chapter runs out of a school ONE STREET AWAY FROM ME!

After finding this out, i joined straight away. :)

There's a quite large group somewhere in the Houston area. I don't know anyone personally, but I know it's there.

I would like to start doing Parkour actually. I'm in Germany and don't know anyone else that does it. How would I start anyway. Is there parkour clubs?

Here's a shout from ClockworkXVI in the UK. I'm out at the moment due to a fracture in my ankle, though.

Yeah. The couple times I came out to meetings left me with a great appreciation of the decline in my physical fitness since high school...My quads hurt for a WEEK after the first time. I've been sore for 3 days, TOPS before. A week? CHRIST, it was painful. The dudes who are good at that stuff are awesome, though.

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

"Interesting list of arts.  I don't agree that all of these are necessary for a man to learn, but hey, neither is Minecraft and I enjoy it in my downtime.  I look forward to your next post."

Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

Hello men,I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was…See More

"My wife likes my hair tamed, but she doesn't want me to get rid of any of it entirely. She likes the look of hair on a man. I'd say don't shave, and unless your pit hair is really out of control, don't trim it either. "
