How and where can I train Parkour - even as a beginner?

Parkour is movement - and a (sporting) exercise starts warming up!
Be warmed up rather well, to avoid injury - there's still enough time for parkour.

The actual training may be configured differently, and should also be adjusted individually to the traceur. Is a traceur a beginner and has not yet experience or the safety and physical conditions, to perform "risky" jumps, so this must grapple with a few basics before an increase in training makes sense.
It is better to train precision jumps - generally increase the bounce, and roll to avoid injury, and the proper landing technique for the beginning.
Very fast (training) results and achievements can be reached without too much strenght - eg. with the » Passement Rapide or » Saut de Chat over base obstacles.
Depending on the Constitution and personal well-being, the training should be coordinated.

Solo Training - train Parkour alone

When you train alone - a traceur is the motivator and controller by his own.
The traceur determines his pace - reduced idle time and intensive training are the results (due to the lack of disturbance and distraction).
The motivation may be slightly sluggish at the start. Even the validation of one's own achievement and monitoring of the movements are very limited (especially for beginners)

Group training - train Parkour together

The inexperienced traceur can learn from more experienced traceurs - as long as they can pass on the knowledge. You can be inspired by the movements and you can learn by imitation
In addition, a group is a good motivator - for example when you want to try out new and do not know how, a experienced traceur of this group can lead you.
Of course, the "group dynamics" can facilitate your training - with fun and joy it's just always easier.
. Disadvantage:
The motivation can also drop if there are is a large proportion of experienced traceurs in the group ("I can not do this what they are doing! Before I embarrass myself, I do nothing"). And peer pressure may contribute to an overestimation of his abilities! -> this can lead to increased injury risk!
Meetings are usually at a certain time (day and time) - may not always be at the optimal condition of an individual traceurs.
Decision when, where, what and how training is pretty set - can lead to resentment feelings.

Group or solo training? How should I (as a beginner) start to train?

Each traceur has to decide if how he wants to train. How (solo, group), when (date), where (spots).
Beginners will benefit most when they start in the group.
Here, budding traceurs can learn the basics and techniques at the most.
If there is no place within the group for the traceur (can have many causes - eg. too many or the wrong people), then the traceur may leave the group (perhaps only briefly), and start to train alone or join another group.
Also, it may be difficult to find a suitable group. This is especially in rural areas. Here, a search on the Internet helps to find a group in the next town or area.
If it's difficult to join a group, this should not be an obstacle to start with Parkour training or continue the training!

(Beginner) train carefully - an example of a lack of concentration!

Example: Parkour Bail
No matter how many times a traceur has tried a jump / move, without the necessary concentration a supposedly perfectly trained jump can "go awry!"
Therefore it's important for beginners to stay "in the matter" and not claim after a successful jump:
"Yes I can."
Be always focused, not overestimate, and especially not to be led by others to do things where you look is not safe! (Peer pressure)

Experience has shown that (according to my experience) every 50-100. jump / move went wrong (especially if a new move is tried, it can also go awry at the very first attempt).
This does not necessarily mean that it also results in a coarser injury, but a fall or slip-up is unpleasant in any case. To accept injuries may result in a longer training break - and that is bad enough :(

preliminary training

As in many sports also as in parkour, it is also important to train very physical.
For example, to increase the bounce, jump strength training may be helpful. Even at home or on the way to school or work, this can be easily done without spending (additional) time.
Remark: I use the exits from the underground, the number of levels of stairs as a "measurement" of the bounce, or just use marks on the road (asphalt grooved concrete slabs or crosswalks, etc.)

Besides the physical training the

Mental training

is important for aspiring traceurs. Funding for the concentration of autogenic training or Gi Gong, Tai Chi, etc. is a possibility.
Also important is the active parkour training - to be "always with it". This avoids injuries. A "inner calm and collect yourself" before a difficult jump is recommended! To be rested is necessary for a successful training. (After a night of drinking simply lacks the necessary power and ability to concentrate!)
