the bad part about parkour/freerunning bloopers is that they probably hurt like a bitch.

4:38 was epic.

Great vid man. You should add more of the fight scene type stunts.

Thank you, I appreciate the comments.

I'm pretty sure they were the double leg ones.

Yeah it is mostly free running, but my main purpose for the video was to use to help me get into stunt work. So I figured I would use "stunt" in it.

I always look forward to seeing stuff from you, and I was not disappointed in the least.  Thank you so much for posting this.

At the beginning of this video, I was making mental notes of the parts I really liked so I could leave specific comments (such as, "the such-and-such at :00 demonstrated great control!)... but I gave up, because it was all ridiculous and I would have ended up commenting on practically every 10 seconds.

*Excellent* bails, btw.  Clearly you do everything as all or nothing.  And when you come up "nothing," it's hilarious (and painful) to see.

And +1 for freerunning in spandex.  :-Sarcasm

You keep getting better and better.  Your diligent and creative training is really paying off.  I hope you keep it up.  Clearly, you are enjoying the results-- and others are, too.  I hope you make it big in the stunt world, if that's the career you're pursuing.



**EDIT!**

Oh, I remember what else I was going to say:  Your confidence and technique in your rolls is exceptional, bar none.  Most people going after the "big stuff" like you demonstrate in this video neglect a) the conditioning; and b) the perfection in the basics that it takes to be successful.  You clearly have the conditioning, but what's even more impressive is the solid way you've nailed the basics (landing, rolling, etc.).  That shows self-control and diligence in training, not to take on too much too fast, and to be willing to drill even the "little stuff" until perfection.  And you apply the same principle to the more complicated and difficult "moves" as well.

I may be making some assumptions here, but just seems (from this and other vids of yours) like that's how you roll* in your training: repetition and diligence (not to mention creativity).

Ridiculous. There's really not a moment that I can really point out as being more amazing than anything else. I wish you luck on finding stunt work.

You mean Dad? Yeah, and keep an eye out for his sampler that should be coming out pretty soon at 42 years old.

I'd pay to see that, just don't tell him I said that.  :)
