No, I want to see a Parkour/Urbex video - you know, diving out of semi-smashed windows...power climb to the first floor at Cherry Knowle etc
Honestly its pretty rare that I need to use what I've learnt through parkour when exploring, especially as I almost always carry camera gear. What IS useful however is the general level of bodily consciousness you gain - with time you become very aware of how you're moving, the space you occupy - how your body is positioned relative to you surroundings, that kind of thing. Anyone can climb through a broken window, but a traceur is less likely to cut themselves on the stubs of glass (or at least requires less concentration to avoid doing so).
It has its uses all over the place, but I wouldn't bother learning purely for purpose. There are maybe 3 sites I've been to where I've needed what I know to gain entrance, and even then I'm probably missing some ridiculously obvious entry just round the corner
