I'm not trying to be a "troll" but..

Why would anyone believe this story? I mean, there is no real proof any of this happened..

is there any proof that it did not happen? In many urban areas there is constant threat of muggins, beatings, murder and assault. Sure, people may make up stories to gain popularity or to feel cool. But, as a fellow traceur, I prefer to take the word of brothers in the world of physical/mantal discipline and self improvement.

I know the guy, he's one of my best friends, so I believe him. You don't have to, but that's you.

I believe it. Is there no crime in the world? Are we not capable of escaping?

I having told true stories on the internet that were not believe like to take people word for what happened. I think that it's possible for people to lie but here no body is impressed necessarily so there would be no point. I'm sure there are many people on the forum that could have done the same thing so why lie about it. The same can be said about the opposite though. I bet that there are people that can't do what was said, but they know that there are people who can. So while I believe the story and think it's awesome and great. (That he could do it and that he did) I think that there would be little point to telling the story here.

I understand what you are saying though. Some stories do sound to good to be true but if it did happen that's one more good side to parkour. And if not then it doesn't really matter. Why? Becasue there are people who could do and thats fine.

There is no evidence either way though so I understand your skepticism.

No one here will call you a troll just by stating your opinion, It's true Pics or it didn't happen applies to most thing on teh internetz but apk has a pretty chill community and most of the guys on here trust each other. And even if he was telling a story it makes you think about what you would do in that situation and appreciate the value of parkour. So as long as you play nice and not act like this guy one dude that everyone was trying to help and he kept bein a jerk(forget the actaul topic) no one will consider you a troll. By the way haven't seen you before so welcome to apk. ;D
