I've seen this video before.  What adds to it, is he is doing these giant jumps, and he can't even roll right.

Jeebus, I haven't no idea how he didn't not break his not legs. As for social darwinism... :p I don't think there was a life guard at his gene pool.
Am I the only one who thought almost all of his techniques were sloppy? And as for that mega high bridge jump technique; not so much sloppy as it was foolish...

It was high but isn't that only 2 stories high? Also yeah his roll was a bit sloppy but it gets harder to roll correctly the higher you jump from. I've never tried that and probably and hopefully never will but if I had to I believe I could.

I love that there is always a crowd of spectators in these sorts of shots. Do they tell people to just crowd around and watch while they potentially kill themselves, or what?

My promise for the month: three sets of handstand pushups (upto 5 reps now...)

I keep having these dreams that I'm falling.

They keep coming true.

Hey, This clip is korni from the polish parkour team quicksilver. I've seen other videos from him and he's very skilled. He's pretty respected in the polish community. He had actually came on pk.net at some point and explained that he did this for the red bull city rage that was coming to poland. Very stupid drop, hopefully he's not doing drops like these anymore.
you betcha on muh horse

So is the US, Canada, and France the only places who've said no to Red Bull?

No Doubt it was big...I originally found the video on parkour.net.  It goes on to explain that this guy has been doing it for a couple years and that, there are a couple of people on the boards that trust him to do it.  That doesnt mean crap really because I could trust someone to do something and they let me down.  I just wanted to let you know there is a thead on parkour.net.  I can't find it sorry.

They said it was over 6.5 meters long.

You mean high? And if you that means I was right it is only about the height of a 2 story bulding.

I wouldn't call that 'balls' as much as I'd call that 'stupidity'. The line between bravery and stupidity is anything but fine.
Tricks aren't parkour but I'm not always faithful.

Titan - twice you've said "only as high as a two story building" ... this worries me as much as someone in Poland jumping off a bridge because Redbull gave him wings!! 

What the hell do you mean "only"?? Two stories is FAR more than anyone should be trying to drop from unless there is something that will certainly kill you up top.

Yeah I did't notice I put only in there when I was just guessing the height. But I have done something nearly that height it was around 15 feet. Now there is an extra 5 feet so yeah it was high. I never ment to put 'only' there. But hasn't anyone ever watch Kyle XY when Kyle jumped off the second story roof...easy stuff he wasn't hurt at all (sarcasm). Now will Itry that high of jump of course...not.
