Okay, maybe it was just part of a stunt. Hopefully they're not saying that it was Parkour in any way. Hopefully it was "just a jump." But still...  :-\

No way is that Damien. His technique is all different, besides, he's not Russian.

Crazy. Thank God they had pads.

ya i saw the last one... stupid.  they obviously both got injured. the second guy nailed his face on the ground and the first guy, after doing his little flip at the end, has a very painful look on his face after landing.

that was RIDICULOUS....ly stupid


have to say for their roll form:
first guy was crappy
second was non existent.... it almost looks as if he hits his head on the ground....


i want to know how much training these guys had.....

and yeah, after blondey does his side flip thing, he looks like hes in a LOT of pain, it almost looks as if his legs are about to give out....

I was motivated to do the Math.  So here it is, I think...  if it was a 7m gap and a, 11m drop, that gives us a hypotenuse of 13.something, which I rounded up to 13.1m to roughly account for their curved travel path.  That is 42.9790 feet of travel.  h(t) = 42.9790 - 16t2 for finding the amount of time t, traveled in the air.  If h(t) is the height of impact, 0, then that gives us a travel time of 1.63896 seconds.  Solving for velocity = gravity x time, he was ~roughly~ traveling at about 17.88 mph when he hit the pads.  If someone wants to do the weight that was put on his knees at the point of impact, I would like that.

I can't understand the reasoning for anyone to do something like this... in the video's description, it said "to attract the public's attention to the parkour and attract the public's attention to the problem of specialized parkour gym shortage," but something like that doesn't seem like enough reason to go out and risk one's life and limb.

Hopefully these guys have had their fill of thrill-seeking.

@Shawn: It's probably pretty difficult to do any kind of rolling when you're falling from that height.

Lol, Shawn, I'd like to see anybody pull that off with a good roll from that height.


Anyway, this pretty disappointing, since it obviously will be seen as PK/FR by at least a few.

oh i know rolls are prolly going to fail from there, but its a habit for me now. any time i see someone roll i critique it (even if its not for parkour). and every time i see someone running i look to see what kind of shoes theyre wearing and if they let their heels hit the ground or not. i dont really know why though, lmao.

It seems like you know what you're doing a bit more than I do.  ~50 mph?  Are you sure?

Yea, that seems a bit high...

~18 appears closer.
