[APK-News]What if I don't have a background in gymnastics,

rssIcon.gif What if I don't have a background in gymnastics, martial arts, etc?

Question: A question that is frequently asked by people looking to get into Parkour and Freerunning is about the backgrounds of some of the higher level traceurs. A lot of experienced traceurs have backgrounds in martial arts, gymnastics, or other similar activities. To some without this kind of background, it can be a bit overwhelming and depressing! Is it possible to get to their level without their background?Answer: Well, there are about 500 different answers for this question. The one that is probably most important is whose level do you want to get to? Parkour is about improving yourself, not striving to be where somebody else is. Every person can improve themself both physically and mentally through parkour training. It is less important where you start out and where you finish - the learning and improving is the journey, and as long as you are on a path of personal improvement... well that is what's important.Check out the forums and post if you need help getting started with the APK workout of the day or some of the basic tutorials. There are plenty of people who are more than willing to help you. The basics remain the most important skills and mastery of those is essential.
