My name is Ben Krueger and I have been practicing parkour since around March of 2008. I will be the first to tell you that I am no David Belle. I am however continuously training to better myself and truly enjoy helping spread the knowledge I have gained through my experiences. My first real encounter with skilled traceurs was back in New York City in 2008. There I had the opportunity to train with the founders of Parkour Generations, Sephane Vigroux and Dan Edwardes. Since that trip, I have trained in various U.S. locations, London, Lisse and Manchester learning and training with the local traceurs as I went. I have also helped organize yearly American Rendezvous events in Columbus, Ohio. These events feature prominent Yamakasi and Parkour Generations athletes such as Chau Belle Dinh, Francois (Forrest) Mahop, Laurent Piedmont and more.
