I recently saw a competition between two teams for Freerunning, which I understand is very similar to Parkour. Very interesting stuff. From an earlier post, is this your SECOND ticket for this practice? If so - maybe you should research the laws govering this activity in your local area before you continue and possibly dig yourself into a huge hole. Maybe if the local law enforcement has some city ordinance against this practice there is a safe (and more legal) location for your activity.

"Planking" is parkour for lazy people. You should give it a try.

And yes, if you have criminal convictions they will come up in the interview.

You can probably get away with one such conviction while young. But if you keep doing it and develop a track record, you will not get hired by the airlines.

Do you like parkour more than hauling rubber dog****** to Cleveland, because those are your two choices.

Grammar and spelling on your resume will probably keep you from getting hired.

Have you seen those movies where it looks like some guy is actually flying over an urban obstacle course and running and jumping up walls or jumping from a 3 story building and rolling over a car hood and then scaling up the side of a 18-wheeler? I just saw some in the movie 'Takers' yesterday. THAT is this 'art'. Of course I read that another name is 'Freerunning' if it is competitive and 'Pakour' if it is not. Not really sure why there would be a difference but maybe Buddist could explain it to us.

This issue that he is having with law enforcement reminds me of the tickets given back in the day for the skaterats performing their tricks on everyone's sidewalks and in the streets before the advent of 'skateparks'

parkour is like skateboarding, except without the skateboard. or loitering, depending on who you ask.

parkour is a philosophy an art also... it involves overcoming any obstacle wether on the streets or in school or life.. it has helped me go from C average in high school to straight A in college.. its also like meditation. ANyway, parkour is the noncomptive art it dosent involves flipping and doing backflips things that are completely useless.. freerunning is flips tricks etc things that are useless in a real life situation and dangerous.. parkour does involve rolling jumping off buildings(this is where i got the fine jumping off the school LOL) the people around snitched on my i was all cool with the police and they were like G i wish i could do that and they gave me a fine anyway.. ive had multiple people appoarch me around town(im the only one that does parkour) and say to me WOW i wish i could do that that looks so hard and itneresting .. parkour is about fluid movements in freerunning you see them stop and do a flip in parkour you would just keep running and jump off and roll.. run up a wall vault a car(point less to roll over one) a few years back I got a 50 dollar fine for skateboard where it clearly said no skateboarding i got a 238 dollar fine for parkour.. ths law is messed up im not hurting anyone..
