Two things went through my head
1 - I really hope this kid has been conditioning those are some high drops...
2 - If this kid trains smart he'll be the next "great" when he get older

It looks like he fits in with the older kids. That kid is awesome, if he keeps going at the rate he's at, he'll be pro.

If this kid trains safely and conditions, he'll grow up to be amazing. He already has a ton of moves down, and his flow will improve greatly with time and practice. Looking forward to seeing this kid again in a few years.

This kid is going to be a legendary freerunner, mark my words.  Not only does he do extremely difficult "moves" but he executes them pretty cleanly, that sitting castaway thing he does is stunning.  Also he doesn't only focus on the big moves, he was hitting pretty nice rail precisions at the start of the video and has very powerful control.

What a beast.

He has some amazing movement for his age, it's pretty awesome. But he still isn't tall enough to ride the roller coasters. ;)

Wow he has some talent.
Weight training alongside parkour always benefits, it never takes away.

Kid has talent. He's definitely going to be a amazing traceur/freerunner.

What I don't get is why kids 13 and under are the only ones with responses like "He is going to be amazing when he is older." If he is already solid in his movement. Doesn't that already make him good? And how Come other people older then 13 never get the responses he is going to be great lol I just think its funny that's all.

I said it just because people don't take kids as seriously as they do adults. 1 year old quarterback who throws fifty yards with dead accuracy as compared to a 20 year old throwing  60 yards with dead accuracy and the 20 year old will be drafted to a team while the 10 year old gets a bit of publicity until he trains more and gets older.

I'm not saying he isn't good though, he's better than I am. Plus if you think about it you see a lot of people around 20-30 who can do what he does with the same amount of or less ease, but if he keeps with it he has those extra 10-20 years to practice to get even better and learn more.

Yes but the kid has an extra 10-20 years assuming they all practice until their 60's (just a random number)

he's good but about 50% of kids that start that young will quit parkour when they hit a certain age, I've seen it happen to awsome athletes, they rock through youth sports, but then when they don't like it anymore, they do what they love, and since he's so young this might not be what he likes to do. It might just be his parents forcing him to take gymnastics.

Dude, you don't get sitting dash bombs and sitting castaways without loving what you do.  This kid definately is into freerunning, I think he helps teach at a school in his town...take that with a grain of salt though, I just remember hearing that somewhere.
