Why I Started Parkour
I grew up playing video games and watching old kung-fu movies. I always admired how the characters would fearlessly jump from thing to thing and run up walls to get where they needed. One day I decided I was going to be like my heroes, so I started practicing movements. Before I knew it I could do everything they could!
 
Why I Love Parkour
While Parkour started as just emulating the people I look up to, it is now something I can no longer describe. I'd love to be able to put it into words, but honestly I feel all words fall short. Parkour is my life, passion, challenge, growth, and fun. Parkour is everything to me.

Specialty
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.

Specialty
Generalist, Power Jumping
 
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.
