Also known as Parkour or Freerunning. Insane stuff, but cool to watch

Thats my first love right there. Le-Parkour, great hobby, if you're interested check out www.urbanfreeflow.com and www.parkour.net it's a great discapline, I'll throw up some links to some of my videos if anyone's interested.

Funny you should mention the founder of the sport is crazy though, all my Parkour Buddies think Unicycling it insane, believe it or not, parkour has a shorter learning curve than unicycling for most people.

oh and check out www.pkto.ca if you're interested in the Canadian scene
I have an article hosted on their main index page at the moment on breaking into the sport.

The whole concept behind it is to train to be able to overcome all obsticals in your path. To be able to get from point A to point B in the fastest and most fluid way possible. That video simply shows off the abilities one can achieve at the higest level of the sport. But most consider roof jumping to showy and unnessacary and it's not as big a part of the sport as all the ground level stuff. Mostly we just drill vaults, jumps, and speed climbing.

Basicly it's about not wanted to be hearded around through the city like everyone else, we want freedom so we make our own. Freedom to move.

Yes, David belle is bigger then KH in parkour, he started it. But don't get confused flips of any kind are NOT parkour, some people do them in conjunction with parkour, but they certainly do not embody the concept of being effecient and fluid, they are showy and a waste of energy. Now don't get me wrong they look cool and all, but flips and related acrobatics fall under the catagory of tricking. Not Parkour. David belle has said so himself many times.

And yes, even if you live in the country you can practice parkour. Got picnic tables? you can practice vaulting those, and with a little determination and some practice get it down pretty fast. I've seen people do diving vaults ( this kind in perticular is called Kongs ) over picnic tables the LONG way, at a full run. so indeed there are things you can find in your area to start on. But start small, it's not about roof jumping or flips. Don't get that impression

oh and irvinegr those are called wall flips, and can be learned without TOO much diffaculty if you have two spotters to help you rotate. if you're interested in Tricking you should go dig up some pages online, theres a ton of cool videos out there. go look at www.trickstutorials.com it's a cool site with some instructional videos.
