Want to learn Parkour?

    id be very happy to teach any fellow enthusiasts of Urban exploring in the art of Parkour - focusing on efficiency of movement rather than just showing off with flips and stuff (technically free running) this will come in VERY useful when trying to get to those hard to reach areas.
    pm me for details if your interested:thumb

    Hey Shinzou, You mean like online instruction or face to face? Where on the south coast are you?

    No it won't.

    ...or as they say "No video, no proof."

    You mean like this 'proof' ?
    Nice work. Some very nice moves in there...one or two I'd certainly find useful in 'UE'
    I'd take you up on your offer if I lived a bit closer...

    Nice vid!

    It's something I wish I'd learned while I was younger -
    My sense of balance is terrible!

    Check out the fan mail on youtube lol.

    TBH I wasn't expecting much as the kids up here come into the climbing center and ask the same thing, "Want me to teach you parkour?" and they are about 15 years old and utter crap. However, other than the all white clothing, I was seriously impressed. The best bit in my opinion was the getting onto the bus station roof.

    I can see how it could be relevant, and is something I think would be a lot of fun, but I'm not going to fuck about with all the tits doing it up here.

    Then I look forward to the Urbour/Parkex videos!

    I can actually see some moves being used on crane sites as it goes.

    i watched quite a few of your videos, which is even more impressive, watching (what apears to me) to be your transition from the gym, to basic outside, to the level you are at currently

    made is seem alot less like the impossible, while no less impressive :thumb

    I can see the value of some of this though Im not sure how much impact a full backpack complete with tripod would have on your ability to pull it off. Anyone tried it?

    Just watched that russian vid you linked smurf, those guys must have some extra ape DNA or something. I was sure they were going to break legs on a couple of occassions. That backflip out of the flats about a third of the way through was insane!
