The best thing I can think of was one day at the park, I was doing this long chain of moves through the whole park. Just as I land and roll and kid runs infront of me, and I tapped him, causing him to fall. Instead of going, "You should be ashamed of yourself," his dad goes, "Wow! Are you doing that urban running thing? I wish I could do that."

Some little girl screamed awesome when she saw me do a tic tac toe to cat

this reminds me of when i went to a huntington beach jam in cali, team street stunts were there and so was king david and another guy called shadow negative from pkcali.com.  but when i first got there and was looking around for other traceurs...i finally spotted shadow negative walking atop this tall wall so i ran over to a 5 foot wall with a railing above it and jumped up at it and over the rail and i heard this little kid back behind me that i had passed while running say to his father, "whoa, did u see that?!" lol i enjoyed that

The weirdest thing that happened to me when I was training was in a gym a couple of years ago. I went running full speed to kong a pummel horse type of thing and when I went to shoot my arms forward for the dive, BOTH of my thumbs somehow got snagged in the front pockets of my running pants. I was going so fast I couldn't stop and went soaring like a rocket head first over the pummel horse with both hands stuck in my pockets! I crashed out on the matts on the other side of the pummel horse without any injuries, but the force of my thumbs catching into my pockets completely ripped out both side of my pants at the seams LOL.

nothing really strange has happened to me yet. only like two weeks into my parkour journey. but i was walking with one of my friends, who i had never done parkour around, or even talked about with, and he was just randomly like, you do parkour right? i was shocked and said, kinda. he pointed to like this 10 or 12 foot pillar, and said, have you jumped that yet? i looked at it for a minute and was like, uuuuh no. he said he had almost done it and explained the theory behind how to do it, and then almost did it. he ran at it, placed his first foot on it, placed his second foot above the first and launched himself upwards and almost grabbed the top.

i was shocked. i wanna do it now :D

i also dont do parkour very long, i started it 4 weeks ago, when i turned 16. i just had my first try to run up and grab the edge of a around 10 feet high wall, first time went wrong, i missed the edge by around 2 inches!!! i was fully focused on grabbing the edge, so i didnt thought it also could go wrong. i fell down and almost twisted my ankle. just about 1 feet of the ground i could switch my mind on a save landing, just on time i could role backwards.

second time was perfect, it might took me around 5 seconds to climb up the wall but i made it

so keep practicing and good luck with your training

i had really a lot of different feelings at the same time.

i was training my monkey and kong vaults im a straight line of fences, while doing a monkey vault, my foot bumbed against the rail and i fell down. i turned around and i saw a lot of black smoke. there was a really big fire somewhere. i wanted to train further but my instincts told me to take a look of what was burning. i went towards the smoke (with a bleeding nose because I fell with the monkey vault). when i was getting closer i saw that it was in the same area as my school. when I was another bit closer I saw it was the gym of my school burning.
school used to start in two days but i don't think we'll have class then.

since i started parkour, almost everything i do goes wrong on one or another way and becomes (kinda) funny for me.

Haha the weirdest thing that happened to me, well, I hopped this one fence in my neighbors backyard, climbed up onto it, and started doing cat balance across it. I was really focused and into it, one all of a sudden I heard a movement to my left. I whipped around, and on the porch was this elderly couple just sitting there, watching me. I completely freaked out, lost my balance, fell off the fence into the opposite yard and got the hell out of there.

Haha I vaulted a few fences, made it back to my house, and just laughed.  ;D

Hopefully he was thinking about parkour videos.

The weirdest thing that has happened to me was I jumped off an I-Beam, and when I rolled I hit a wall, and a then a mattress fell on top of me. More random than weird, but I'll contribute what I can. :D

Dude, today a bum flashed us, f#cking creeper!! And we kept training and he was like eating crackers and they were falling out of his mouth. And then he pulled out a sandwich and started eating that. And then he spilled his bottle of water trying to drink it. And then he said to call the hopstial for him, and we told him to aska  cop, and he did and an ambulance came for him haha.  :o
