Where do you find REAL Parkour videos?
« on: March 18, 2012, 01:10:31 PM »
I realize 90% of this community doesn't care or give a rip about the difference between parkour and free-running... that it's all 'just movement' yadda yadda yadda, but what is a good way to filter out these flippy-kids videos and just watch people who literally train in the art of moving from point A to point B in the most efficient ways possible? Where's the real parkour?

Note - Flippin the Script! is a channel dedicated to martial arts tricking, however, as many of its followers are both fans of tricking and parkour, we are looking to learn more about real parkour so that we can post videos that properly reflect what the art is about. Thank you!

Type in Pure parkour on youtube; however, you gotta have an open mind to try tricking at least once.

The real parkour? The real freerunning?

Its found by training with the founders or people that have been teached by the founders. The original freerunning is not acrobatics brought out doors, and the original parkour is simply not 'move from a to b'.

I believe the A.D.A.P.T certificate is as close to real parkour and freerunning as it gets. In terms of videos, check out parkour generations, david channel, julie angels chanel, sebs channel, add acadamy channel.

These guys didnt spend their time with internet tutorials because it never existed lol..

Comment to follow.
 I'm also a fan of "A-B" Parkour. Not big on the a flipping videos. If you do a flip between a gap I think that's awesome but I really dont like watching videos of guys just doing flips on the ground or of ledges just to do it.
David Belle once robbed a bank and left all the money on the Roof. He just wanted to prove that he could overcome any "Vault"..
