Meh...
Obviously, these guys are very good at flipping/spinning, HOWEVER!
I wasn't a big fan of how after about half of the flips that they did, they stumbled out or just fell on their faces.  I'm not saying it's not good, because some of the flow on the playground was great, I just would like to see a little more control...

Other than that, holy crap!  ;)

Not bad, now is that freerunning or parkour?

Watching videos like these makes me realize how new to parkour my group and myself are to parkour. I thought I was amazing when I learned a swinging latche across a 3-4 foot gap.


 Keep up the good work guys!

Yeah to be honest, I didn't enjoy it much either. Don't get me wrong they are good, I just don't like to see freerunners who focus solely on doing hard tricks, even when their basic form is crap. Plus when it's just flip after crappy flip it's not going to look good unless they put a lot more effort into editing.
A state of mind when you are performing a physical movement that is neither too simple or too complex. Your focus rules out all other mental processes, your mind has no time for words, worries, or distractions. There is only timing, spatial awareness, and the feeling of satisfaction as you land

I'm glad you agree, Shane :) Those were my exact thoughts.

Both. There's not really a way to tell by watching a video.

Let's make up a new sport "Playground tricking" and then we don't have to worry what to call it :P

Cool video.

A video is a video, not Parkour or Freerunning. 'Nuff said.

I am REALLY tired of watching videos with nothing but tricking...  It's not because I don't do tricking, I'm learning tricking, but I'm never really gonna' use it as solid videos.  I just don't quite see the point of it...  It doesn't inspire me...
