So who are you?
My government name is Julius Andrew Porter.
Where are you from?
Good old Oxford North Carolina, beau.
That sounds pretty bumpin‘
Or just Raleigh…’cause that’s where I train…Wait am I from where I train?
I think so…
We’ll say Raleigh then.
What’s the community like in NC?
Right now it’s scattered. We don’t train outside, everyone just goes to gyms. I usually can’t train with people outside because I’m so busy, but when I do want to…there’s no one who does that.
What are you doing right now?
Training for NAPC and working.
Where do you work?
Enso Movement. First parkour gym in NC, I’m a coach and professional athlete…can I say that?
Are you a professional?
Are you an athlete?
Are you doing anything other than working at Enso?
I’m a student, I’m going to school at NCCU. I’m studying mass communications. Hopefully…do something with that I guess…
That isn’t the most enthusiastic answer I’ve ever heard.
I…like parkour…more than I like school.
Do you have a 10-year plan with your training then?
No, I’m taking parkour 1 day at a time…the furthest I have planned is NAPC this September.
How’s your training been going for NAPC?
Really well. I’ve been seeing gains like a pregnant mother!
That’s…you might want to see a doctor?
No…no, they would tell me I couldn’t do parkour.
