... If you're gonna do Parkour, maybe you should actually know what it is?

EDIT:

Its getting to one point to another as quickly and efficiently(sp?) as possible.

It takes a lot of physical strength,agility and balance. If you have watched the newest James Bond movie, the chase at the beginning of the movie is a very extreme version of parkour.

I love the sport, but I live in the country making it a bit more difficult.

oooooo! That! I personally think that it would be a great way to get away from the cops just imagine..........

Parkour is a lot more than just "jumping over stuff". I don't do it, but I know people that take it very seriously.
#17
wooop!

been waiting on this thread for ages lol

i know its more than "jumping over stuff" but to get good enough so that you can do more than that takes a lot of time....

basically all im saying, is that i just over stuff!
im good at th balancing part too

is this going to turn into a "im better than you" thread? have a bad feeling...
#18
i used to, but noone else i knew did, and i didnt really get great at it, i got kinda fat and lazy
I breathe air.
#19
I'm thinking of taking it up. I'm in pretty decent shape already so i was wondering if there are any pointers to get started?

Especially if you also had side hobbies of gymnastics and martial arts!

When it's done properly, it's awesome.

When it's a bunch of kids jumping down 2 steps and trying to copy the people on tv, it sucks.

I know they have to start somewhere but I mean come on...

good choice, its an amzing thing to do and really rewarding when you nail a movement.
as for where to start: first watch loads of parkour videos on the internet, watch "jump britain" on google video, download and watch TK17's project pilgrimage documentary (google it)

read these: http://3run.dotagame.com/viewforum.php?f=14

maybe try and get friend(s) to learn with you, find a good spot to start and go for it!

I would, but I'm about as coordinated as a drunken piece of fruit on a freight train.

I'd probably run into a lampost and die.

urban ninja is more of free running than parkour

And parkour is basically manipulating your speed and momentum with obstacles to get from point a to point b faster than you normally would.
