Parkour!

I’m too lazy to determine if I’ve posted on Parkour before, but I think I am. Anyway, it is probably the best thing to come out of France besides the food. If you saw Casino Royale, the contruction site scene has some nice free running. Above is a clip from District 13, a terrible French movie that has some pretty awesome free running/parkour action. Parkour is basically urban gymnastics and free running is doing it while on the move. Most parkour clips seem to involve cheesy techno and dudes with no shirts, so it is very European, but still pretty sweet.

I always knew that success at parkour involved some injuries and below are some painful looking fails. After the jump are some other sweet vids.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
