really nice video guys, but be careful on those big jumps, you looked like you knew what you were doing, but make sure your level of fitness is up to par with the skills you are performing or else you'll end up in a world of pain a few years down the road.

but i liked the video alot, especially the little bit of Nature PK/FR at the end of the video.

Our skill level is obviously good enough to do them jumps because we did the perfect.  How do you say we are not good enough to do something that we just did in the video?  It doesnt make sense

The jumps weren't perfect sorry to say. Your flips looked sloppy, especially the sideflip thingy. I suggest working on ground level to perfect the technique (Do a standing front flip, then a standing sideflip.) Compare yourselves with more experienced tricksters aka Joe Eigo and see how clean his are compared to yours. The comment about not being good enough refers to the fact that you guys didn't look clean + confident, and your landings seemed a little forced. It's easy to tell if you've watched enough. How long have you been free running for? Looks like less then a year  ;)

I was actually quite surprised by your rolls they looked very nice and smooth. /clap

im agreeing with Leon on this one

you guys even said on youtube that you have only been doing it for 6 months so there is always room for improvement. I know you have probably heard it a million times but ill join in with everyone else and tell you to watch your jumps, nobody wants to see you getting hurt.

There were some solid parts of the video and it shows through your dedication and training,

BUT

your flips do indeed look very sloppy, and alot of your vaults could use alot of improvement. When someone on here is trying to look out for you by suggesting to be more careful, that does not that does not mean to bite their head off. Your vaults are slow, forced, and have little flow. They are just things to work on. For only practicing for 6 months you guys are pretty damn good, but it all comes with time.

Just remember guys, i mentioned fitness level for a reason, i believe is was Belle who recommended that anyone who wants to do parkour without a big risk of injury should go through 2 years of intensive full body conditioning before they start.

There is simply no need to practice these big jumps early on, even David Belle working his way up for MANY years till he was doing the roof jumps that we have become so familiar with.

I personally have resolved myself not to do any huge drops, or roof jumps until I am in excellent shape, and have been practicing parkour for more than a few years. (right now im just past 1)

hey really good guys but it felt like some of the flips just ruined the flow a few times, everyones already commented on the big drops and I agree maybe you should lay off of them a little but thats your decision, you guys handle them better then I can, but I also would like to say the sequence from 2:15 to about 2:20 really stuck out in my head for some reason, thought it was really cool. Anyways good luck guys and stay safe!

All the flips we did, were into a full blown sprint or we landed them clean.  We didnt put our hands down on any flip and all of the rolls after the flips were clean.  And dont tell me I dont have flow and my vaults are sloppy.  Watch some of our earlier videos and tell me we dont have flow.

None of our vault of flips are sloppy otherwise we wouldnt put them in a video

How do you talk crap and put me and my team member down when you dont have a video to show you are better?  Ya, i know watch the jump, but i am smart enough and have enough experience to not get hurt.  I am confident before i do anything.   Ya, one more month and it will be one year of training for me and my team member.  Lets see your video and how good you are, for saying all my flips are sloppy.  Are you scared of big jump or drops?  how long you been free running for?

your flips are sloppy and how exactly were we putting you down? we are helping you out by telling you what you could improve on?

but one thing i really will put you down on is how unbelievably childish you are acting. Its like you are trying to challenge leon to a competition to see who is better. In my eyes its extremly pathetic to see you drop to that level. Who cares if anyone has a video or not? who are you trying to impress with your "mad skills" ? spend more time to reach new achievements through self motivation and self satisfaction, not to post your little videos 90 thousand times all over the site so you can fish for compliments through other traceurs, and then when you dont hear what you want, you lash out and try to make it a competition for everyone else to show off their skills.

This maturity will hopefully come with age, HOPEFULLY, so grow up

and yes your vaults and flips are very sloppy.

just because you land on your feet does not mean that its a good flip. If your arms and legs are flailing around and you have no tuck whatso ever, that makes it a sloppy flip. And everyime you pause before a vault, that takes away all the flow. I am not saying that you guys arent good for your skill level, im saying dont sit here and try to act like you are the best by any means, because trust me, you guys have ALOT of work to do.

Immature, ya right.  I aint challanging nobody.  You say my style is sloppy and shit, I wanna see why you think that.  If i do a fat arched backflip and dont tuck, it is sloppy?  If i do a fat front flip like daniel, it is sloppy?  Landing a corkscrew side flip into a full blown sprint is sloppy?  There is no hesitation in any of our videos.  We do our stuff fast and clean.  I know i aint the best but there is no need for the critisism.  I dont put people down when they are looking for support.  Nobody is perfect, but i know our shit aint weak.  You all are trying to say it is

Uh, I thought the point of putting up vids was FOR constructive criticism so people can get others opinions on how to improve their abilities. If you just wanted people to support you and be in awe of your ability you should've just posted on myspace or whatever other blogs where people are amazed at all that stuff. Since we're all traceurs here, we help each other by giving advice (not "busting" on each other like you think we are..) to improve. I mean, if you think it's perfect already it's probably not a good idea to post it on a forum for Parkour/Freerunning since we are going to criticize it (to try to help you out). If you look at all of the threads in this forum you'll see that most of the posts are criticizing people on what they could do better.
