Some old, and new ways to crash. Remember that falls like these are quite 'normal' when you're training for Parkour. However the more you train safely, within your limits, the less you're likely to fail bigger jumps. And "more" is something like thousands of times, not dozens of times.

Nothing more need be said:
Chennai Parkour is conducting two Training Sessions for beginners. One exclusively for girls, and one open session. Details below.

First off, I'd like to thank everyone who made it to the Jam, and every person who tried, but was unable to come. It was a great experience for me, and I hope you had fun too.
The Videos are coming soon, but in the meantime, here are some photos.
ChennaiParkour.com and Urban Exodus have good news for you. We're organising a Parkour Jam on the 23rd of August at Thiru Vi Ka Park in Shenoy Nagar. Be there at 3PM with a bottle of water, something to eat (if you get hungry, a banana should be good), and a safe place to keep your cell phone and wallet.
We've had a wonderful response today, from the article in The Hindu. Big thanks to Shonali Muthalaly for that. We've been contacted by a number of people, and everyone wants to know a couple of basic things. So here's a post that should make things easy for everyone. Let me get all the 'most wanted info' right out here in the open.
I came across this article on AmericanParkour.com a couple of days ago about a boy who fell 30ft because he was imitating videos from YouTube. Please do read it. We need to avoid such occurences in Chennai, because once Parkour develops a bad reputation in our city, it could mean that we'll have a more difficult time while practicing.
These pictures were taken when the Indian Express Photographer came over to shoot the Urban Exodus team. They're finally uploaded here for you viewing pleasure.
Big thanks to everyone who was there, and participated.
The authorities at the YMCA College of Physical Education have agreed to allow the Chennai Traceurs to practice in the vast premises. This is good news indeed. Big thanks to them from everyone at ChennaiParkour.com.
The New Indian Express wrote about parkour, and parkour in Chennai on friday. ChennaiParkour.com and the Urban Exodus team were featured extensively.
You can download a PDF of the article here, if you've not already read about it.
The picture here features Prabhu, Vishwa and Vinu. Tariq, Karthik, Dinesh and Venkat were also part of the photoshoot. More pictures taken by me coming up in the near future.
We've had quite a good response, and people are asking to join us in practice every couple of days. Super! Now, instead of repeating the same thing over and over again, here's a quick post about how to get in touch with Chennai Parkour, and Urban Exodus.
