what if they taught our soldiers this shit? that'd be badass.
"i see your 12 jihadists and will raise you a batallion of spider-men equipped with M4's"
The Soldiers would be nearly untouchable!
Haha they used to teach the French commandos parkour in the 60's
It would be a real bitch to pull off some of this wearing 80 pounds of gear and body armor.
That said, you should watch some vids of Rangers in action……
The French military implemented parkour so their military could get out of anywhere, you're a little late but good thinking
Parkour is inspired by the military parkour…
A couple of Special Operation units have been using a free running gym in California to try out a new kind of martial art/free running/PT
I like your thinking… They'd have to be referenced as ninjas though.
The day they start implementing parkour is the day I sign up for the military!
UK Special Forces teach free running on a basic level not like that video though =)
It started in the military as something called Méthode naturelle, or natural method, which then developed quite some time later into Parkour. Freerunning came right after that.
All thanks to Sebastian Foucan
And David Belle
Not even close.
Is it necessary to run after? It's amazing none the less
It bleeds of the energy of impact. Same thing for the rolling you see them doing.
If you take out the running part, then it's just called "free" instead of "freerunning".
You're super hot – is that really you in your profile pic?
actually the run after a hard landing helps to make the force from the landing go forward instead of down
There's so much moentum left after doing a move like that, so you can't not run after doing one.
These guys need helmets
also i always thought it was kinda weird that their steel balls don't weigh them down
Holy future knee replacements
I bet the outtakes reel is way more fun and nearly as impressive
I think they use them as counter-weights.
that's some real assassin's creed shit
I honestly just wanted them to not wear such ill fitting sweat pants. Those things get caught on something and your tricks are worthless.
Most athletic activity ever done in sweats
Urban gymnasts… quite athletic
you're an idiot… also nice anchorman reference with the video's title Bob!
krap it was good
I get the same balls in my throat feeling watching that as I did watching the guys climbing that really tall bridge!
Some people must be part monkey.
u-tube racist oprah, at least one person will agree
like… absolutely everyone?
And they do it all in pants that are 10 sizes too big,
I was going to say… are the huge pants a pre requisite?
Loose clothing allows more freedom of motion. It's a lot to do with why soldiers wear baggy trousers.
Also extra padding for the road/parkour rash from sliding on concrete.
Not exactly going to do it in skinny jeans now are ya?
Hammer pants are back in fashion it seems.
just how it works. try doing it in skinny jeans, hurts.
Is it a requirement to wear sweatpants that are 3 sizes to big to do parkour?
They need the extra room for their balls.
Fucking useless punks.
They DO make great faceplant compilations though!

Hahaha … Planetoid! Good one. Paula is so fat she got her own gravity!

I know of at least one spot they dare not land…..
On her germ be-rotten, attention seeking fanny is my guess.
Herwhy dont you allbstop paying attention to her so she stops this is why we still hear about octomom and the kardasians

The floor is lava!!

Youz da clown suckah ass honkeyy
English please Henry.
Mannnn fuck u dis iz English bitch
Translation: Sir, screw you this is English you female dog!
Does it take tremendous effort to talk so stupid? It hurts my brain to read your sentences.
I've got a feeling that Ezio Auditore would would put them all to shame.
Urban gymnastics maybe but not parkour…parkour is meant as a way to utilize movement to absorb shock and extend reach to get from point a to point b…doing 3 flips to jump over a 2 foot fence is not parkour.
you correct peoples grammar on youtube don't you
RacerX2112 is correct, this is what's called free-running. It's less about travel efficiency and more about showing off. Pretty badass though.
Old argument is old.
Yeah, i came to the comments to see if anyone was going to say this
no one gives a shit
Jason Bourne has some competition
Makes my talent of Left handed Internet navigation seem overshadowed. Hmm.
At least it keeps them off the streets.
clearly they are on the streets. Or did you not see the bits when they were on the streets?
They were only touching for a second though…..
I want to see the ones where they DONT make it!
One guy didn't make it. It was in the first third of the video. His buddy made a long jump to a round platform and he followed but didn't make it. He slides down the front of it. Of course he makes it look like that is what he wanted to do.
This is WAAAYYYYY more entertaining….
there were at least 4 fails in this video, but they did some clever editing or pannd away as soon as it happened so it looks more fluid then it was
This is not parkour, this is mostly freerunning. Free running is with all the flips and makeing it look sweet. Parkour is simply the fastest you can flow using all the obstacles.
I was hoping someone would make this distinction
Regardless, this makes people more aware of both of them, so it's all good
Not to be a nitpicker (well actually I am)….Thats a perfect example of freerunning (not Parkour).
David Belle and Sebastian Foucan founding Parkour, but had differing views on the philosophy. Eventually splitting. David Belle (Parkour) believed it should be the most efficient way to get from Point A to Point B. Sebastian Foucan believed you shouldn't take it too seriously, have fun, add in some flips, spins, etc. and so he split off and created freerunning.
Glad you said it, it's really not that hard of a distinction. Also, urban gymnastics, urban ninja, wtf, that's like saying riding a motorcycle is high speed bicycling; they're similar but it just makes you look really stupid
I wonder if they make skateboard sounds with their mouth the whole time..
"clickclickclick whap! sssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnngggggggggg, WHOOOOP! CLACK! clickclickclick"
yawn. cant get paid to do it and will bust your face in the process.
They could easily become stunt men and get paid big bucks Dumb Ass
Also… you know… the world championships…
It's not too far off from Olympic gymnastics and would be way more entertaining to watch… heck, they added snowboarding, why not free-running?
You can totally get paid to do this r u kidding me and face plants who gives a damn you get to learn beast ass tricks and Ive only seen people get face plants if they really suck and don't know what they're doing Levi meeuwenburg gets paid for this shit
