About Me:
I'm a high school French teacher, so I speak French fluently. I have studied and worked in France. One of my students (Haku/Josh) introduced me to Parkour. He told me Parkour motivated him to study French. I'm doing a student trip to Paris and London in August, 2010, and the students of mine who are traceurs and I will be making the pilgrimage to Lisses. Upon registering, I am a total beginner, but I want to spend the next year training so I can practice in Lisses with my students.
Other Physical Disciplines:
Jazzercise (I'm an instructor), downhill skiing, ice skating, roller skating/rollerblading.

Tim and Tom have trained seriously for almost a year now, making often the drive out to SF on Sunday and supporting each other and the South Bayers very well...

Whoa, awesome! Prospect is my mainstay for weekday training nowadays (being summer and all), since my brother and I are close enough to run there. When do your students train? I'd love to join them, or if you can drop by when we're training and give us some French lessons while we train. ;)

As of now we're training Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from around 6:45 to 8, if you or your students can drop by sometime. We would love to see you there.

Kristen... this is so cool!
The teachers shall learn from their students... if they keep an open, youthful mind, congrats!

Your first opportunities to jump in is either the session that you signed up for, or the girls only jam on the same day at GWHS, both in SF.

At some point, maybe after checking out the real deal outdoor, in order to boost your confidence in a safe/controlled environment, you may want to take a class indoor, or just go train in a gym environment.
There are gyms and classes in the East Bay, Marin and SF, just see what works best for you...

Also, you may want to take a look at this guide, which summarizes many principles we try to stick to.

Welcome!
:)
