Biking is the most I think. I was a runner once, but gave it up after two years for no reason - now I'm somewhat to lazy to start again :(
Climbing mountains with my parents and siblings when I was little was kinda cool, and to ski :)
I've tried Karate for a summer, but it didn't kick in. Not my sort of sport I guess. But I love to play volleyball, beachvolleyball for the win :)

Just looked what parkour is .. looks like a lot of fun! :D
Regardless what they all say - the one who truly rules the world is the big old ancient slime

I've adored swimming since I was ickle. When I was 11 I passed my 1500m, which is 60 lengths of a 25m pool.
Shortly after that, I was old enough to get myself across town to Reading Central Pool, which has diving boards. I spent lots of Sunday afternoons there diving, and now I live in Sheffield I'm hoping to join the diving club to learn to do it properly. It's fecking scary though, because they have Olympic class facilities including a 10m platform and a 6m deep diving pit. I expect to crap myself on day one.

Drumming is like a sport. Definately the most exercising of the rock instruments!

Parkour is great fun ;D Made a Parkour-community as a school project earlier, but its not online now. Last summer me and two friends did some Parkour around where I live but one of then just moved to Japan so might be hard to do that now :-\
Well, it's fun alone too. But especially at the beginning it's nice to have some friends or more experienced traceurs around. If you really like parkour and want to find friends to do it with, you could go to www.le-parkour.se and try to find new people to do Parkour with. If you live in a city there's a good chance of there being other traceurs around that have accounts in there.

A modern bow or a real bow? I've got a wooden longbow and a longsword. Forgot to add medieval archery and cutting-various-things-of-different-sizes-into-pieces-using-a-longsword into my first reply to this thread.

You'll get along with Talhoffer, I'm quite sure. He likes to chop up his mates with a longsword. Calls it "reenactment fighting". Viking style.

If you've got a bit of knowledge about swordplay, you should recognice that name

What are those fucked up bows called? A compound or something? They are more like fire and forget missle launchers than bows.

Composite?

Composite bows are bows made from more than one piece/material. They have existed at least since the Roman Empire, as eastern roman auxillia archers sometimes had such. These weren't as adcanved as the ones we have today, with wheels and bowstrings five times longer than the bow itself, but they existed and were considered superior to normal bows of the same size.
