Wow, Owen's a friggin' gibbon.

I really like the VA PK Timeless video. Others who know a lot more than me will be better judges of the skill shown. In any case, this is the video I show to people when I want to introduce parkour. It doesn't include roof-jumps or such things to freak out parents. It shows movement and flow (whether real or spliced-together), rather than individual exercises or moves. And it looks hard but possible to someone like me, while watching Owen would just intimidate me if that's the first thing I saw.

pk13 was not that good. they did a few big techniques, but not as fast or efficient as they could have been and what happened to all the other moves that are parkour?

i would probably nominate a Zanshin Studios piece, either "Enter the Zanshin" or "Inspire". The pk isn't exactly up to speeders standard but it's pretty good, and it's one of the most fun to watch parkour vids.

if somebody could find the links to all the videos that arent linked yet, that would be great. also, if someone could organize, categorize, and make the list more informational and good looking, that would be much appreciated by a lot of people! i have been pretty busy and havent been able to put the time i wanted into this post.

Here is the link to U$F Vol 3: http://www.urbanfreeflow.com/u_dollar_f/u_dollar_f3.htm

It was listed above, but with no link.  Being new to Parkour I found the interview with Stephane very interesting.   He recounts his original training, giving examples,  and insight into the philosophy of Parkour.  His comments are inspiring and sobering.   Very much in line with Blane's Dilution article.  It's a must see.

Jump Westminster Jump Westminster is great for beginners. It's got the inspiring stuff at the beginning, and then all the footage of kids training. You're like "If that fat kid can do that, so can I."

I think that Gameyy's video about having fun is definitely a must see video.  I completely agree with him about how theres no point in it if your not having fun.
