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.

I could have died while hiking today, don't be stupid like me

I have a cautionary tale for my fellow outdoorsmen out there. I went hiking solo today through some less traveled canyons near where I live. I unknowingly ended up off trail and was aggressively bouldering to get up and around some obstacles, mainly a decent sized waterfall. I kept pushing because I thought this was my route, and the knowledge that I wouldn't need to go down because I was on a loop. Anyway, I finally got up the bulk of it and couldn't find anything that resembled a trail.…See More

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
