My name is Clark. I am a philosophy major. I grew up in San Bernardino California. I left Southern California in 1991 when I joined the Army at the age of twenty one. The next ten years of my life I spent running around the world in the service. I saw a lot of different countries and generally had a great time. Some of my interests include but are by no means limited to body weight exercise, Russian kettlebells, parkour, various martial arts, and reading. Mostly I like to read fantastic fiction and philosophy when I am not in school. Other topics I read about are related to physical training and autism. The topic I chose to write about for my area of research is parkour. This has been one of my interests for much longer than it has been popular. I want to learn more about this emerging sport and go beyond my cursory knowledge.
