I'm not sure I have one, as I'm more of a jack of all trades.
 
Why I Started Parkour
I used to play soccer, and I wanted to be able to celebrate victories by doing a front flip.
 
Why I Love Parkour
I've always been an athlete and loved to move, but there's a feeling of freedom in Parkour that I never got anywhere else. Also the community is by far the nicest I've ever met.

Tumbling

Why I Started:
I started out as a national gymnast and my friends started doing Parkour, so I tried it. I liked the variety of skill and creativity involved and I got hooked.

Why I Love It:
I love testing my body and challenging myself. When I learn a new movement I feel accomplished and look for ways to use it in different circumstances. It's also fun to just jump around and have a good time!

Why I Started Parkour
Having played conventional sports such as basketball for most of my life, I wanted to explore physical activity in a different way. I was drawn to the raw athleticism and “be strong to be useful” philosophy displayed by the practitioners of the time.
 
Why I Love Parkour
Through Parkour, I gained an appreciation for movement from a different perspective, one that focuses on freedom, self-directed challenge, environmental awareness, and functional fitness. As I practiced Parkour, I got to know an amazing community of people who I continue to train with today. As an instructor, I have seen the benefits of Parkour in the physical literacy and confidence of younger practitioners and this has inspired me to pursue a degree in Kinesiology and teaching.

Delving deep into the minds of my students and combating their innermost demons and fears... Also, dad jokes.
 
Why I Started Parkour
I grew up in a jungle. I was found and raised by a friendly panther and his hetero life partner bear. We quickly learned that with my delicate fur-less body, I would need some way to combat the many adventures that were sure to come my way. I learned the ways of the animals and grew to become the most fearsome protector of the jungle.
 
Why I Love Parkour
I found it very difficult to express my love for parkour... so I wrote a poem:
Oh Parkour, shall I compare thee to a Summer’s day?
Love is not love, if Summer’s lease has all too short a date.
Not marble, nor the gilded monuments of princes,
Make a famine where abundance lies.
O, learn to read what silent love hath writ:
To hear with eyes belongs to love's fine wit.
