Umm... wrong. Free running is not parkour. they are similar though. Parkour is designed to be the most efficent way to navigate an obsticle. Free Running navigates the obsticle but often adds a twist or extra flip to make it look more graceful.

Watch Casino Royale for some awesome Parkour scenes. The bomber in the beginning is actually the inventor of parkour.

More parkour

Anywho, yeah, Freerunning is a new breed of Parkour. Sure they're different, like soccer and indoor soccer.... but come on, let's be honest, it's the same sport.

MDK got it right.


Anyways yeah I free run when ever I get the chance, mainly in the summer. And trust me a 2 story jump is easier said than done.

Apparently it also kills people. Some kid in the paper the otherday died trying to jumo off a building while practicing.
Paintball isn't my hobby, it's my lifestyle. Go hard or go home.

Well, yeah, you can get killed... if you screw up. There's an inherant risk associated with it, but if you're willing to risk it, it's tons of fun.

Yeah it's very dangerous, you should only do what you're comfortable doing. Gradually work your way up.

I'm lean and energetic... but unfortunately the ice and cold around here are somewhat detrimental to my ability to do much...

The only time there's not ice and snow up here is the summer, and even then it manages to produce 40 degree weather with rain in june... miserable... and I only have peoples houses where i live to jump from...

I've actually gotten some nice stuff done on playgrounds. Me and some friends play tag on a really really small place, and we say we arent allowed to touch the ground... so we have to get creative.
