perfectly executed? i strongly disagree. they need a lot of work on control and strength. they are pushing beyond their level.

however, I do agree with Demon here.
I'm just simple minded at the moment, and didn't want to take my time, and post a well thought out reply.

my apologies.

they never do climb ups, that's one thing they could work on.

You're being sarcastic right? Most of the landings were akward looking and just sloppy. There was nothing really special about the video IMO...

They definitly aren't comfortable with the moves yet.  Like demon said they are trying stuff out of their level and their landings could use a lot of work.

Get with the flow...

That parkour was so parkourific.  *man I'm turning into an ass*  I see titles of these threads and feel like jamming truth down peoples throats...kinda like people did to me when I was an idiot., uneducated ... idiot.

But to give you my real opinion.  I do not feel this video what-so-ever is perfectly executed nor executed Parkour. :)

 Although I do agree with most about not being a perfectly executed parkour AT ALL... this kids look really young, they do need to work on certain stuff (we all do ANYWAY) I think they did well and I give them props for being skillful at such a young age.

None of their moves were that sloppy, I thought, that's all.

Jeez, I thought I was gonna be the first to naysay...but apparently im late to the party!

Twas a decent vid, but as everyone has said, they are getting quite ahead of themselves...and lack the control. I mean you can just see it in their movement, like running and landing...their muscles just dont have that fine control you see in like jin or belle moving

I thought most of the moves were sloppy.  Their limbs were flailing and uncontrolled.  Their movements were not all that smooth either.  I am not saying they are bad, they are getting there, they just need more experience.

In addition, and I can't believe someone hasn't mentioned this yet, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PERFECTLY EXECUTED PARKOUR!  There is always room for improvement.  Even Belle is not perfect.  This is why he continues to train tirelessly every day.  Striving for perfection is good.  Expecting to achieve it is being presumptuous.

Ok so I think we all have established that I can not be trusted with the responsibility of naming topics. Just putting that out there. ::)

Can I kill this thread yet?? I can not stand the negative karma flowing into my soul through my monitor. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!! :'(

Geez, it wasn't that bad.  Pefectly executed, maybe not.  But it was a heckuvalot better than a lot of people can do.
