Presenting Parkour to the Public (Informational Video)
« on: March 21, 2012, 04:18:02 AM »
Here are a few things that I've learned over the years about talking to people about parkour and freerunning.

I hope you all find something that will make explaining the discipline a little easier.

I really liked this video

Great video! Thanks for posting.

I will actually pin this for now. If we start collecting a bunch of resources like this, we'll want to go ahead and organize them into their own thread. ;D

I like to use "freerunning" when talking to someone who hasn't heard of the discipline. It is more English and thus more easily absorbed.
