    so, any one here a traceur?

    (if you don't know what a traceur is, you probably aren't one - a traceur is someone who practices parkour and/or free running.)

    I wouldn't call myself a traceur.
    But I definitely love to run around and climb around the cities

    Used to be, but I stopped due to doing in my back and knees - not just from Parkour though.

    Was pretty good, got some photos around and about of me and my ex-girlfriend doing it around our area.

    I wish I was strong enough and flexible enough to do that. I have watched hundreds of amazing parkour videos and I was in awe. I want to be a traceur so bad, but I can't get in that kind of shape. My legs are super strong, but my arms are relatively weak. Good luck, and don't get hurt if you do this sport.

    I do quite a lot of climbing, so physically I'm sure I could do it... but I don't have the skill. I was thinking of doing it a while ago though

    but its still a great thing to do alot.

    for some better examples, (besides a video game, even though its a pretty good representation) search for David Belle - hes the "founder" of parkour (founder in quotes because technically its existed since the beginning of man, but he was the one to organize it into a sport. he's also really good at it)

    I used to do some with my friend we live in a relatively small tourist town, the population is 10,000 but we get close to 3 million tourists during the summer. Generally we go out at 12 or 1 in the am and go, which is where we find and climb to rooftops around town.

    I think the most parkour thing weve ever done was, there was this old elementary school right next to the rec center, and we climbed the school and gabbed a ladder from the back (it was sill under construction) and we ran the ladder over the 15 feet to the rec center.

    The thing was we were 20 feet in the air and the ladder was mega sketchy. it was epic.
