Ouch... that's intense.  I don't have any to compare to that. 

I fell off a rail while walking down it.  I tried to catch myself, but ended up making it worse.  One leg wrapped around the rail and the other came down directly on it. Then my ribs nailed the rail.  It didn't hurt too bad, but it was right in front of the library and people were kind of looking at me and laughing, so it sucked. 

Another time I scraped the whole backside of my leg on a tree because I didn't fully commit.  I wussed out halfway through the wallspin, which is never good.

i was doing an underbar in a parking garage through a small opening in front of restaurants in my downtown area and miscalculated where my head was and had a nice little meeting with a concrete retainer head first. I bled like crazy for like 10 minutes straight. It was kinda embarrassing  hahaha

I was working on underbars in a park. We had no ducttape, so we were just taking turns holding our arms out as the lower barrier.

Lets just say my underbar is SO awesome, I managed to groin myself.... Arched my back just a taaaaad too far, and i kept moving forward and... well... yeah.

Ouch.

I once jumped to a shed with a cement roof, and landed on my shin...Had blood running from my knee to my ankle...and then dripping into my shoe. Not that it stopped me from finishing my run, lol.

I have a nice picture of it...But for some reason, it wont let me attach it...It says upload folder is full...Weird. I can email it, for anyone intrested, lol.

   Back before we could do wall climbs well at all, we had a small two by four leaning on a tree as a ramp to kind of run up and make it to this board nailed higher between this tree and another tree that had maybe half a foot gap between them. As I found out later, it's a really smart idea to SECURE a ramp if your going to run up it. This ramp was not secure and it slipped sidways when I was halfway up.
   I missed the higher board nailed to the trees because of this, but that wasn't the problem. Fell down through the space between the two trees, which is considerably smaller then I am. It hurt scraping both sides of my chest between the trees, still wasn't the biggest problem. The ramp was at the bottom of the space between the trees, still sticking straight up somehow. THERE'S the problem. Went right down on top of it, hit it and fell face-first on top of a fallen log.
   As my sister elloquently put it, after my limping home through the woods, "Hey, Max, what happened to your face?"

Another time me and a friend were practicing percision jumps between these four or five logs that leaned over a creek at varying heights. Pretty easy, I easily made almost every jump, once or twice leaning to far forward landing, but catching myself and I was fine. To counter this slightly pesky occurance of overbalancing, the next time I jumped, I didn't lean forward as far when I landed. Unfortunately for me, the log I was jumping to was at a greater height, so I lost my balance, starting to fall back.
   This has happened before, not really all that rare, so I twist around and try to jump back to the log I started from. AGAIN, I don't quite make it and start to fall backwards. Christ, you'd think I would learn my lesson. But no. So I twist around and try to make it back to the other log. Why did I even try this? The other log is higher, I have about half as much momentum, how am I going to make this jump? I don't. Well, one of my legs does, the other one falls into the creek, and my arms and chest fall back towards the log I started from, slamming into it, pulling some muscle and taking most of the skin off my right elbow. I still have the scar.
  I manage to effectively wedge myself between the two logs, however, and don't get wet at all. That's great, because I hate being wet. Bet that doesn't count for much, because I'm still stuck between two logs. After laughing at me for a while, my friend pulled me out and onto the nearby bank of the creek.

   That's the worst that's happened to me for as long as I've been practicing Parkour, I think, unless you count falling off that tree and THROUGH a few other small trees onto the ground. At least they stopped me from falling as fast, but I wasn't really practicing parkour right then, just being a jackass.

haha another good one i just thought of, i was at the park paracticing my straight jump ups from the ground to a 4' fence that surrounds the park. I jumped up, but landed on he tips of my toes, and my toes slid off so i landed on the rail completely on my shins, went over the other edge, and fell 4' head first into the dirt. Needless to say i walked away with giant welts on my shins and cuts all up and down the sides of my face. BUT i did turn around and try it again 10 seconds later and nailed it.  :)

Hahaha, so painful. Mine is about the same, allow me to illustrate:

Legs with skates = / \
12 feet of air = ~

In-line skating, hit a speed wobble, went off the side of a flybox instead of straight over it, came right down on a rail. Ouch.

see this is what gives us all a bad name. Stupid kids doing huge ass gaps and getting themselves hurt. and then when people ask how it happened......"oh yeah i was doing parkour" its just dumb. but i have to admit, its funny as hell to watch them hurt themselves like that.
