Joshua Ortiz - west Hartford Parkour
My name is Joshua Ortiz. I am 21 years of age. I found parkour through a friend of mine about 2 years ago. I fell in love on the spot! Parkour gave me a sense of freedom to move in ways not the everyday person would understand. It felt empowering! Since then, I have trained almost everyday to become the best that I can be in hopes to share my passions with others not only in what I can do but in what I can give back through the art of parkour. My ultimate goal is to teach and run my very own parkour and freerunning gym.
