I am James Dickson, I am 19 years old and I live in a town called Carrickfergus which is in Northern Ireland. I experimented in various different sports but never stuck at anything for more than a month. My Parkour journey began when I was 14 although I was able to do Backflips from a younger age as I learned on my back garden trampoline. I have been committed to the sport and have enjoyed all the challenges it has showed me along the way. I enjoy building our community in Ireland and Northern Ireland as community as it is one of the most important factors in my training, This is because we can build and push each other to be the best we can
I enjoy trying different types of movements finding weaknesses in my training and working on them. I love travelling and I plan to dedicate as much time as I can to travel and experience different places and meet different communities. I have been involved in various short films, shows and events and plan to do more in the future. I recently did my level 1 adapt course which allows me to teach Parkour with assistance and plan to do my level 2 in the future. The sport has helped me overcome fears, helped me become more selfless and more of stronger person mentally and physically. I plan to do Parkour for as long as I can and also to keep moving onwards and upwards.
