Parkour and Free Running
« on: September 13, 2014, 02:46:41 AM »
Parkour and Free Running, discuss, share, whatever.
To clarify the difference:
Parkour is getting from point A - B, overcoming obstacles and getting there in the fastest time possible.
Free Running is similar but adding a personal "flair", with tricks and unnecessary stuff that looks cool.

I personally don't do parkour but my mates do and they used to run a channel called team trace, link is here: https://www.youtube.com/user/TeamTrace/featured now they run a new channel called district parkour but I don't think they're that active anymore. Here are their two best videos:

(edit by Armadillo: Be warned if your parents / little sibling / grandmas are around and you have speakers, song for first video is filled with strong language)

.
As a sport I think it's one of the most exciting as evidenced by some amazing youtube videos but I've never been the best at vaults and flips because I'm a lanky sod. :P

Am I the only short person on this site? :(

Epic parkour dog is epic! :o
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Thanks Armadillo for that edit, I hadn't really considered that.
Oh and Jubal, I'm definitely average at 6 foot 5 :P
