    I think it has the potential to be a fun hobby but round here the 'scene' is full of kids who think they are ninjas and can do anything. I don't think it's useful in modern society, but I do admire it in the same way I admire dancing :gay

    The exploitation of your surrounding environment can only be encouraged as far as I'm concerned though.

    Its one of them things I have always admired and wanted to get into, but just never get around to. Running around the rooftop of the Arndale was about the closest I have ever got to it. :)

    I just think its awesome. I discovered clips of it on U toob showing the guy who is claimed to have invented' it (David Belle). That guy can climb a building in seconds! Theres also a Russian guy whos done it for the latest bond films. If I was remotely fit I would love to do this, like you say.....great for running from the neds and scallies!

    If it keeps even a small number of bored teenagers from doing arson and vandalism its a winner!

    it's great for evading anything, i find. especially when you get used to the back on your back. smooth movements = faster escape while security/chavs/coppers are all being flummoxed by whatever obstacle you just cleared.

    my fave is a clip of a guy on UTOOB who gets into his car through the open window feet first in like a second AFTER vaulting a wall and a roof and drives off leaving the cops scratching their gentials

    I really want to give it a try, been fascinated for years and when I saw some being done in France I got really inspired. They do some training classes in London for anyone who's tempted but put off by lack of knowledge or skill :)

    checkout District 13; a french film with loads of parkour in it. I'm trying to get into free running atm but like Sjollema says it takes a lot of time and dedication to get any good at it.

    Wow! What a wicked video! Wish I could do that! Am currently trying to master the art of ice skating which is the extent of my physical exersion and is of no use whatsoever when it comes to urban exploration and usually involves me getting shown up by some cocky 8 year old! :banghead

    Remember, you have two knives on the bottom of your feet.

    You could always accidentally fall over near them, and kick them in the face.

    They won't be so cool then will they :p
