2 things:

1) I think it's funny that most of them use girl centric music
2) That last chick is insane.

They were all pretty amazing. Why is it so rare to see a girl doing pk?  Does anyone else think girls doing pk is kinda sexy/cool? Last girl was ammmmmazzzzzing!

You forgot our very own _flow!! <3

Women will soon see how awesome parkour is and how they shouldn't be scared. We'll have as many female traceurs as males one day!
When we move, we move as one.

Act; for the universe will never forget your movement, nor will it ever forgive your stillness.

Cool. More Girl Power :)  I didn't see _Flow when I was searching out the girl videos..

If you look to our northern neighbors in Canada, you will see there are many girls into parkour..

MadParkour will be getting a video of Muse up here sooner or later... whether she knows we're filming or not... ;).

I agree, I don't get why parkour hasn't seemed to attract more women.... yet!

O.o

Wha...?!

Heh. That will go under the "comedy" section, for sure.

:)

I just watched them (my connection was flakey so the video was choppy for a while and I couldn't watch them).

How did you get your hands on Madpk's training footage?

:P

Kidding, obviously.

A nice mix of dance and parkour, definitely! Thanks, Muhammad!

I hope we see a lot more of that. I'm not gonna lie, a girl doing PK is like ten times as hot as just a girl. Same with paintballing. It's something about them doing the same thing I am, even though it's sometimes a male-dominated thing. Plus for a lot of the stuff, they have the ability to be way better than us. I mean we usually have more upper body strength, but for stuff like vaults or underbars, it seems like a girl would be way better. Hopefully this didn't offend anyone.

okay I just want to point out that I saw a thread entitled Girl-power and then saw it was started by Muhammad I almost spat my drink out so thank you for that.

and more on topic yes I would love to see more girls doing parkour.

Hey I thinks it's really inspiring to see the skill levels those girls have achieved. It makes me want to get out there train harder :)

<-- has no skills. :P

These videos just depress me. I mean, I'm better than when I started two months ago, but still... nothing worth putting on a video. Heh. I find them inspiring at the same time. Depends on my mood, I guess.

Some day I'll have parkour skills! Oh yes, they will be mine.

Don't feel bad Muse. Some of those girls have more skill than me! LOL.

Don't worry. Keep working steadily. It doesn't happen overnight, and you know it.
