Most excellent, +1!

There is no way for me to pick that video apart. Other than to say, it made me go, "woah!"

The Back flip off of Cats fountain should have started at 1.58-1.59 and been slow motion like the aerial earlier in the video to keep balanced.  And the words at the Start I didn't notice at first because they blended in to well and were at the very bottom, maybe a different color or different location.  Other then that great video.  I HAD TO LOOK HARD TO FIND THESE POINTS lols.    Really tho the Cats wall back flip bugs me that its not done in the same fashion as the aerial.

Cant wait to hang with you again.  Love the video it goes to my iPod as soon as i can get the time to do it later today.

I blame Gearsighted for any amount of 'flow' found in this video. I can only wish that I could flow as well as he does.

k, I finally got around to watching this.  Leon, I htink it's a great video.  I think the beginning is spectacular just because you go about that one spot in so many different ways.  However, I do think that you went about it rather lazily and if you're really going to do something like that (it LOOKED like you were training how to run across that area from different angles fluidly) you should go at it a bit more gung-ho.  Then again, I recall sometimes where you turned around...  Hm, thogh.. maybe that's another theme for the conditioning weeks.. random approaches to a single environment, yet maintaining speed and flow in a singular direction the whole time (until the next approach).

Other than that, I've really nothing to add.  I might say you should work on incorporating your flips/twists/spins/tricks into your runs more fluidly (I HAVE seen it done fluidly before), but it doesn't really matter to me and I'm not sure it matters at all in freerunning.

I was just having fun in the beginning  ;D Thanks for the compliments - I will make my flips as fluid as possible!

One can only dream...  But in the mean time, that "400 CONFIDENCE" thing really works! (Not that I've tried it out of desperation or anything...  ;))

I'm wondering how you know this.  Have you been smelling your shoes?

You know, I saved this video to my computer as "400 CONFIDENCE," because that makes me laugh.

Not only are you incredibly skilled and it's obvious by watching you that you love what you do... But you are also quite possibly one of the most random people I've never met.

I showed your video to a friend who's never really heard of Parkour before and she said, "Oh my goodness!  I would not want to chase that guy.  He's like a monkey!"

Those, my friend, are her exact words.  In other words, you impress chicks.  Way to go!

Fresh Rose?  I don't know what your talking about, I only use Berry Sunrise Passion Cream Manly Manscented Manlotion for Men! (made with real lightning)

I have to concur, Laurie. Cheetah and Leon are terrific people. I pretty much smile every time I think, "Look! A cheetah!" And Leon has The Gift, IMO. If only he would take his 400 Confidence and run with it. Well, actually, he has.

"Manly Manscented Manlotion for Men (made with real lightning)" was hilarious. Pretty much made me almost spit shiraz all over my keyboard.

And we are so off topic.

Also, Leon's video.

She followed slowly, taking a long time,
as though there were some obstacle in the way;
and yet: as though, once it was overcome,
she would be beyond all walking, and would fly.

Oh, right!  The video!

If only LeoNn's personality didn't come out in it so much.  THAT'S why it's distracting.  (And I mean that in a very good way).

But seriously, there was some really sweet (read: unbelievable and awesome) stuff in that video.

I like off topic.


but technically we're not, because it's my video, and my video covers all topics ranging from man-oderant to powerthirst.

anyways back to the topic at hand, I like either 'Wet Dog', 'Fresh Garbage', or 'Low Tide' scents.
