Erik Ostlund (born December 29, 1993) is a traceur and free runner in Bakersfield, California. I try to get parkour and freerunning known in California, and have succeeded in bringing people in. So far, I have gotten parkour spread around the high school I attend. I also train people new to the disciplines and want to start a parkour/freerunning gym in Bakersfield.
Although I am not well known around the world, I don't want to be super famous because I don't like media attention (but that's just an excuse as to why i'm not famous tbh). I can be contacted by private message on http://www.3run.co.uk/forum/ to his account parkourdude.
I have not released any videos of myself or my team, Shadow Parkour, but plan to in 2010. My role models include and are not limited to David Belle, Sebastien Foucan, Levi Meeuwenberg, Mr T., James Hunt, and Chase Armitage.
I has trained for three years, almost. As of August 2010 I will have trained for that long (lol so basically i've trained for 2 years). I want to spread parkour throughout my school, then city, then county, then state, then southwest U.S.A. But I want to get at least as far as state. After that I want to start and finish college, getting a major in either chemistry, physics, psychology, or computers (who care). After I graduate, I want to tour Japan, and then move to London, England, to train with the professionals.
I started doing freerunning about June of 2009, and want to start up a PK/FR club in high school and college(when I get there) and want to start several martial arts, including: tae kwon do, ninjutsu, karate, judo, and bojutsu.
Also I like myself a lot, in case typing a huge article about myself didn't tell you that already.
