    I started doing parkour with a couple of friends and we did it independently - tutorials on youtube helped us a lot. If you however decide to train properly, I'd contact Sam Parham of 3run who does coaching. 3run is one of the best parkour teams in the world and that's the one I'd go with.

    Yeah, that's my understanding. I've been working on my roll and once that's down, I'll precision jumping (is it called that?).
    Yeah precisions are a big part, you also wanna do some basic vaults and jumping to the cat position on a wall, I'm sure you will be able to find tutorials on youtube

    Thanks, I'll check them out. I'm hoping I'll be able to get started in the New Year, which gives me a little time to practice the basics and shape up

    Where do you practice?

    It's something I'd be interested in, but I have nowhere to practice. And, well, I'm afraid of looking like a mad man doing it anywhere public
