My name is Daniel Valentin Arroyo, I was born on Feb. 14th 1987 in Fort Riley, Kansas; and I am Puerto Rican. My father was in the military which lead to a respectful upbringing. My mother and father split in 1999, that is when I stayed with my mom and my only brother stayed with my dad. My mom and I moved to Tampa, Florida where I have lived up until present. I graduated from Riverview Highschool and moved on to Hillsborough Community College in pursuit of a degree in Engineering. In feb/march of 2010 my dad, grandma, & grandfather all passed away, Parkour has been a way for me to deal with my loses and push for the future. As far as Parkour is concerned, I have been climbing/jumping ever since I was born but didn’t take up serious training until about 4 years ago, I have a very broad background consisting of Soccer, bowling, wrestling, body building, boxing, Inline Skating, Breakdancing, baseball, basketball, & pool. I love movement, doesn’t matter what your into. I try and tie whatever I can into my own movement and illustrate it in whatever environment I come across.
