This is parkour/freerunning! I was so fascinated after watching it on youtube that I had to find a group doing it. Really cool to meet the traceurs(parkourpeople), and see their awesome jumps and tricks!
They learned me some foundational techniques, but it wasn't easy. Was a bit disappointed, since it seems to be so easy on youtube! :) I have to try more to see if I have the abilities and patience to learn some foundational parkour.
Amazing new video with one of the cool traceurs I met! As you see parkour can be really useful! (PS: not mine videoes)
and another one with the same guy!
|The same guy in the longest jump I've ever seen!|
Another amazing video. This is more freerunning, just like parkour but with more acrobatics. Parkour is more about efficiency than style, the fastest way between two points without unnecessary acrobatics.
