Directed at Speeditup-
Oh...my gosh.  Demon.  I am going to take your advise and go easy.  But Seriously...I had been practicing the philosophy for about 1 month and realized that flips are not parkour.  I didnt even do that much reading and training at the beginning...THERE IS ONLY ONE FORM OF PARKOUR!!!!  What they were doing in the video was REALLY bad Free Running.

Rest of Crew-
Mostly everthing has been said to you guys already about the video but seriously...If you keep hyperflexing your knees (bending past 90*) your knees are going to explode.  PLEASE practice that in your next training session.  You guys, Seriously have a lot of potential!!!  Just please practice safty first off PLEASE.  With you guys if you all went to an open gym or something you would all your back tucks 20$ and 1 hour later.  I hope that you guys atleast know that Flips are not parkour.  But of course you have to know that already.

Oh and Air 21 Crew.  There is NOTHING wrong with doing flips.  You learn and grow on those SERIOUSLY!  Just dont call it parkour.  And the person who hosted it never called it parkour so you guys are in the RED!! :)

^Aat the top part, yea i know, and im working on the 90 degree angle rule, question though, does that apply to rolls also? And for lower surfaces back tucks are needed but for something a little high the back tuck overotates that body. "I hope that you guys atleast know that Flips are not parkour.  But of course you have to know that already." - Ive known it basically since day 1

yes it still applies on rolls. watch david belle do rolls and you will see that he barely bends his knees at all.

Yeah. My rolls are done extremly well and when I do landings I don't bend my knees much so I easily spring into a roll. Then the regular landing, until a couple weeks ago I stopped bending my knees I knew not to but for some reason I kept doing it but not as much as I used to.

do flips they are extremely fun and it is fun to improve upon them.  Just make sure you don't call it parkour for two reasons.
1)I don't think that it will give the media the right idea or anybody for that matter
2)Everybody on the site will rag on you like there is not tommorow

about what demon said about you almost snapping your knees off at 1:07 is true. What you shouldnt do is let your body get all the way down like that as demon said it stresses the knees. Use your leg muscles to slow you down when you hit so you just don't crumple.

I haven't been checking the forums lately and thought I'd just take a look at the new videos...

Parkour is NOT whatever you want it to be. You can do whatever you want to do - but that does not make it Parkour.

Please take a look at the www.americanparkour.com home page and read up.
I reccomend the "What Parkour is link": http://americanparkour.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=221&Itemid=237
And the "What Parkour is not" link: http://americanparkour.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=223&Itemid=237

These are not APK's opinions. They pretty much agree with the one man who's opinion actually matters - the founder of PK (David Belle).

Demon, your are a good man.

Go easy on him guys, they don't come much more ignorant than this. ::)

+1 Applause for Demon.

Everything parkour/freerunning/tricking/health-related has been said, so I'll take a different route.

While I also suggest that you take a good long break from the camerawork, I'll make a few pointers for you video.  From a purely cinematic perspective, the over-a-minute-long introduction was entirely unnecessary and a waste of time.  Put filler material like that at the end.  From a musical perspective, be more creative in your selection.  A parkour video is still a parkour video even without the seemingly obligatory French rap song in the background.

Speeditup, I respect the fact that you listened to what everyone else had to say; after all, we're all here to help each other.  Subliminal, however, please show a little more respect toward the other traceurs on APK.  They've probably been doing parkour for a lot longer than you and clearly know lot more about the basic principles and philosophies.  APK is host to a number of world-class traceurs, including Demon.  Please treat them, and everyone else on the site, with just a little more respect.  We know what we're talking about.
Some laws are made to be broken.  Like gravity.

Also speeditup why dont you post in anyother topics or threads? You could learn some philosophy or state what you believe so far in your training.
