Ryan  you gotta tell me I can only Wall Run a well up to my shoulders 6 foot exactly and I barely make that how do you get that high

Guy with a knife + My love for my Ipod = Adrenaline rush :D

But really, I blame adrenaline for how easy it was. I went back and tried to do it again, and I reached it, but not easily.

Most of these guys just want an easy steal and aren't willing to put any work in, ie: run after you, fight, etc... the whole knife thing was a: "Hey, I have a knife, just hand it over" sort of thing.

A friend of mine was knocked off his bike. All he had to do was start yelling and the guy ran away, which I thought was pretty pathetic considering he had half the battle won already.

You'll never have this problem if you stick to well lit areas, or areas with some degree of traffic, not because these will do anything to help fight muggers off, they are just risk avert and will probably think twice before taking a chance over an ipod.

Now you have a great story for your grandkids!

Still though you gotta tell me how can I get that good at the wall run?

Ah great story. My best friend has avoided 2 counts of either a crazy beating or getting shot by use of Parkour(: And kinda off/on topic, we should share stories like these to that Mayor over in Florida who banned Parkour.(Dont start a storm over it, its just a suggestion) But either way I'm glad your okay!

It's for a tv show, it's not like he does that just for fun, and to steal their stuff.  Watch his other videos.

doing something on tv is as baad as doing it in real life

... also, I posted this to Facebook and my friend pointed out that if everyone was taught parkour, they would've just chased you up the wall. :P
During their climb up, you can punt their face.
Height advantage ftw.
I like Tricking and Free Running, i don't think i actually do parkour, because i do it for fun and self expression, which would change the term to free running.

Or they can go AC style, climb up with one hand and pull you down with the other.
