Here's a link to some grainy video of them too. One guy did back handsprings literally on the same spot over and over and over. Amazing.

Pretty insane.

Reminds me of a chase scene from a French movie I can't remember the name off.

District b13.... they're coming out with another by the way.

-----------------------

Yeah, there's a lot of combination of things gymnastics, hand balancing, trampoline guys, martial arts, bboy stuff, etc. in these vids beyond parkour or free running.

And just for note parkour or freerunning both DO NOT CONDONE TAKING BIG DROPS OFF ANYTHING. Potential for injury is huge, and even if you can do it safely your joints are taking a beating. I refuse to do anything but ground level techniques.

I've never really liked kids, but I'd have that guy's babies.

Well in that case I'll just have to start working on my gymnastics...
