Chennai Parkour Blog
Last Sunday, Balaji and I were coming back from Besant Nagar beach because it was just too crowded to practice. Wondering about practice locations, we figured that maybe the train stations will be great places to practice. Doing a Recce, we found this to be true. Ideal, with rails, stairs and open areas, the Chennai MRTS stations are brilliant locations to practice.
Everyone here is new to parkour, and some have not been physically active at all over the last few years (I'm speaking for myself on that last one). Now, even though I'm all kicked about parkour, I'm sensible enough to take things slowly. My goals over the coming weeks are to improve my overall flexibility, and to train for strength and endurance.
Chennai, India has a number of Traceurs (people who practice Parkour) who are very enthusiastic about this sport. However, it is still in its infancy and has yet a way to go. Join in the fun and be part of this fun (and dangerous) sport. Parkour has variations that are called Le Parkour, L'art du dÃ©placement (the art of movement), Free Running, Yamakasi, and God knows what else! If you're here to find out more about how to get in touch with the traceurs and free runners who are over-running this city, check on the beaches, the parks and the train stations.
