I was into it with some friends before college. We tried to start a club for it at our high school and failed miserably to arouse any interest

I have a mate that is awesome at it. The other day though, we were playing ping-pong at school and he was like "watch this". So he took a run up, back-flipped off the wall, landed flat on his face and then proceeded to clean up the blood without our teacher noticing.

It's not a hobby but my friends and I jump a few things without your foot touching it sometimes.

I live in a small town. It's pretty difficult jumping off stuff cause the chances are you'll hit an old lady or pervert.
I know you think that I'm someone you can trust.
But I'm scared i'll get scared and i swear i'll try to nail you back up.

I'd really like to get into that, but I'm in terrible shape and I don't see it turning out well for me. It'd be awesome to be able to do though. Urban exploring sounds bad ass.

I've done a bit, it's pretty fun. Haven't hurt myself yet though, but that's because I eat my vegetables.

I'd like to be into that. But I'm getting into sparring with wooden swords & hand-to-hand with my buddies. It's very fun.

No I think you're confusing "black sheep" with "crime fighting superhero"

It was cool for about 7 minutes, now it's just some pseudo-sport that any spotty kid can do.

Unless you can jump around like spiderman I don't give a toss. If I end up watching a 'parkour' video these days it inevitably involves some little tosser jumping from a massive hight and landing terribly, whilst praying something gets broken and enjoying knowing that his knees are spine are getting raped.

If you're good then great stuff, if you're not you look like a proper tool.

I don't understand the appeal of "Parkour." What's so great about jumping over random objects around your town? Everybody did that as a little kid.

It takes practice to get good. nobody is just instantly awesome.

If you're good at it, it's still captivating. Nobody says any other sport is less of a sport because the noobs are terrible at it.

The noob:good person ratio is much higher in parkour than any other sport.

I don't know why I keep calling it a sport. It blatantly isn't.

Good argument. You must be one of those who jumps off high things and thinks it's clever when you put O Fortuna behind it.

Oh, no, you're right, pseudo-statistics pulled out of your ass followed by assumptions and generalizations are way better.

And that plane take-off flyby video is still edited. (That was you in there, wasn't it?)

A lot of you guys clearly don't know what you're on about. I know guys who are trained by gymnastics teachers and some of the stuff I've seen them pull off is absolutely and utterly insane.

Pseudo-statistic? Next time I'll conduct an RCT before making conclusions on the noob:good people ratio of parkour.

It was me in that thread, but my argument was the same as yours.

I live in a village. A village is just a settlement thats too small to be a town.

Seriously, though, think about it. Worldwide sports and games have millions (billions?) of players, and the great majority are awful. The same has to hold for free running, though the sheer numbers are much smaller. Fewer people actually dedicate serious time to it, so fewer excel.
