Incredible just doesn't seem to do it justice.

And pardon me for bringing it up but, after seeing the pure "controlled freedom" in that video, I feel compelled to say... 
 
I'll bet those guys never argue about philosophies and definitions of parkour, or freerunning, or even dance for that matter. The lines disappeared, the way it should be all the time. They seemed to move without care for consequence or reason. Movement for the sake of movement. 
 
I like it.

If free running is about creative and aesthetic interaction with obstacles this is the best examplar ever. Incredible.

I also think it is important to note that this is not an Oleg video this is group video many of sequences are performed by other dvinsk traceurs, were are not taking about one super beast here we are talking about a whole crew of them redefining what is possible.

So inspired.
I shall not fear, fear is the mind killer the little death that precedes total obliteration

I will face my fear, I will let it pass over and through me and were it is gone, I will turn the inner eye and see its path, and only I will remain.

Yup, this redefined free running me. Before I just thought of it mostly as doing a bunch of flips and spins, but this goes far beyond that. It's really much harder to define and I believe is the essence of free running, just moving without limits however you want.

I also think it is important to note that this is not an Oleg video this is group video many of sequences are performed by other dvinsk traceurs, were are not taking about one super beast here we are talking about a whole crew of them redefining what is possible.

Oh thanks for confirming my suspicions. It seemed like it was all different people, but I didn't believe more than one person could be that skilled.
Train safe, train fun.

Wow. That was just beautiful, and powerful and a whole blend of adjectives at the same time.
That def inspired the crap out of me.
Movement that combines all of those different activities, yet is in itself unique is both genius and jaw-dropping.
I really hope this kind of creativity inspires a lot more videos/experimentation in movement. This definitely makes me want to go out and develop my own style and be that comfortable with my movement/environment...
Amazing.

Oh.  my.  word. 
That was...wow.
I had to backtrack on certain sections of that video because I could not believe it was actually being done by humans (particularly 4-4:30 min.).
And like Adam McC said, I have never seen it tied so closely to dance.  That was super cool to see, as one with a dance background.
Though, we can only dream to have the fluidity demonstrated here.
And on another note, what can these guys NOT do?
Wow.

I just don't understand how his hands aren't destroyed by all that... I mean yea they must be calloused after everything we've seen before but all of that is just too much!
