Okay... Jump Westminster. WOW.

I have a new mission in life. No joke.

As a teacher, I was hoping to start a PK club at my school (but then I changed schools so I have to start over at the new school). However now, I'm thinking of partnering up with a couple of youth community centers and doing something like this in my city. *gears in the head are turning*

Yup... this is something I absolutely need to do.

as though there were some obstacle in the way;
and yet: as though, once it was overcome,
she would be beyond all walking, and would fly.

I cannot seem to get the Stephane documentary to work.  I downloaded it but when I try to open it in Windows Media Player it gives me a message about the extension being different from the file type or something like that.

Anybody else have this trouble or know how to fix it? Thanks.

Great videos by the way!

i really like the chase video, that's really cool. it seemed like the people chasing belle were pretty good at PK too, but not as good as belle.

Hurry Belle, it's the PK police!

I would say that the recent ESPN E:60 piece is a must-see.

I believe that by continually watching good technique and form in Parkour you will naturally adapt your motions to replicate what you have seen. This article (http://www.golfonline.com/golfonline/features/features/article/0,17742,1533067,00.html) demonstrates what I'm talking about, though I'm sure you all agree with me. It's important to observe the proper movements in Parkour so that you don't end up like those pathetic UK kids on youtube who recklessly run and jump around, taking pride in the fact that they are destroying their bodies (I know first hand that there are plenty of Americans too).

Watch good videos when you cannot train, and note moves that these well trained traceurs make. Though they have trained heavily for many years, it's clear that every traceur can take something positive away. Nice idea Demon.

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.   



Blane's Dilution article is revealing and very good for any level traceur to read (though it's probably targeted at budding traceurs like myself).

I've been really stuck on Dim Monk's videos.

Also Mathieu Ledoux, former inline skater, is pretty amazing.

When faced with the stress of a life-threatening engagement, we don't rise to the occasion, we descend to our level of training.

I don't know if this has already been posted or not (too lazy to look). But Daer's videos (from urbanrunners) should be put up here. That guy is really good.

I swear sometimes these places were built to run free on. Why cant it be more like that where I live?

Oh and with the vid of matt l..... I wonder how he got down from that last run?!?!?
