If we think of that one David Belle documentary... he does a jump like that.  I mean, not QUITE as high, but still something that the rest of us wouldn't dare try.  I'm not saying that something like that is all right to do... but I'm just amused by the double standard.  Anyone BUT Belle will be criticized for that jump.  Of course, we also have to take into account that Belle has been doing this FAR longer than anyone else in the world has and that by the time Parkour started spreading, he already had ten years under his belt.  BUT.. my point's still kind of valid as just a, "Huh, isn't that interesting" kind of thing.

I still say that the jump was moronic.  I'm just pointing out something amusing.

Its 18 years, and its not intretsting its true. He has proven himself to be able to handle those drops, and he dosnt do them for red bull. Now I'm not going to try to guess this guys reasons for doing this drop. Also i know this is just one video but in this video his rolls didnt look that good, and neither did his landings. So from this one video it dosnt seem like he could handle that drop.

I think that video is quite old, and I also think that this guy can handle those kind of jumps from previous things. If I remember corectly Korni, if it is the Korni I'm talking about, has been doing PK for 8 years or something like that and was cocky because he was talking about not pratcing the basics and still being amazing. Just stuff that interested other people  :-\ ::) :P. This was somtime around last fall. eh w/e he still did the jump and looked like he was comfortable even if his landing and roll was bad. I would agree that nobody should do jumps like those even though I have seen higher, like those huge backflips that those asian people do in like thiland or something.

because he rolled. i dont think luck had alot to do with it. if he was lucky then he wouldnt have jumped.

didnt someone in Jump London (its been so long since i've seen it) do a 3 story drop on a battle ship? or was it a 2....or something. anyway there is very little that would provoke me to make that jump, i'd have to think hard about taking the drop or fighting for my life

Not only was the jump surprising to see, but the wall run was sick! Holy crap, I could only do like... 1 step on the wall, and he did like 4 or 5! Wow, I wish I could do that.

And I actually did jump something that high, or roughly close to it. I was freaking out when I did it, though, and yeah I really hurt my leg badly, but surprisingly I didn't break it. Wow, looks like God does love me afterall.

Holy Moly! That was a huge jump. People have fallen from bigger stuff and haven't broke anything, so I'm not too surprised that he didn't. Although I am surprised that he would even think about attempting that. So far the biggest thing I have jumped (actually jumped, not dropped) from is a backstop at a baseball field. I'm assuming it was over 12' although I am not certain.

the wall he did a wall run on is slanted.

well it kinda makes you wonder what the human body is really capable of with intense focus, now just imagine if those guys knew how to roll, they'd just stand right up and walk away.

(not saying other *certain famous* traceurs have not done things that they put intense focus into)
