I've seen this video before.  What adds to it, is he is doing these giant jumps, and he can't even roll right.

OMG  :o I think he must have broken something on that jump. I wouldn't do that, unless i HAD to.

I think I'd have to turn and fight before I jumped something like that...well, social darwinism is an amazing thing, huh?... :-\

Jeebus, I haven't no idea how he didn't not break his not legs. As for social darwinism... :p I don't think there was a life guard at his gene pool.
Am I the only one who thought almost all of his techniques were sloppy? And as for that mega high bridge jump technique; not so much sloppy as it was foolish...

It was high but isn't that only 2 stories high? Also yeah his roll was a bit sloppy but it gets harder to roll correctly the higher you jump from. I've never tried that and probably and hopefully never will but if I had to I believe I could.

I love that there is always a crowd of spectators in these sorts of shots. Do they tell people to just crowd around and watch while they potentially kill themselves, or what?

Hey, This clip is korni from the polish parkour team quicksilver. I've seen other videos from him and he's very skilled. He's pretty respected in the polish community. He had actually came on pk.net at some point and explained that he did this for the red bull city rage that was coming to poland. Very stupid drop, hopefully he's not doing drops like these anymore.
Title: Re: HOLY CRAP HOW DO YOU NOT BREAK YOUR LEGS?!
Post by: JumpOff on August 09, 2006, 05:22:55 AM
yeah , but the point is hopefully he didnt do it in the name of parkour for redbull...

No Doubt it was big...I originally found the video on parkour.net.  It goes on to explain that this guy has been doing it for a couple years and that, there are a couple of people on the boards that trust him to do it.  That doesnt mean crap really because I could trust someone to do something and they let me down.  I just wanted to let you know there is a thead on parkour.net.  I can't find it sorry.

They said it was over 6.5 meters long.

Post by: Josh Maciel on August 09, 2006, 08:13:42 AM
You mean high? And if you that means I was right it is only about the height of a 2 story bulding.

Post by: Olloth Kenson on August 09, 2006, 12:25:24 PM
I wouldn't call that 'balls' as much as I'd call that 'stupidity'. The line between bravery and stupidity is anything but fine.
Title: Re: HOLY CRAP HOW DO YOU NOT BREAK YOUR LEGS?!
Post by: Matthew Lee Willis on August 09, 2006, 07:46:12 PM
Yes, 6.5 Meters Tall.  About 19' 6'' or something like that.

Titan - twice you've said "only as high as a two story building" ... this worries me as much as someone in Poland jumping off a bridge because Redbull gave him wings!! 

What the hell do you mean "only"?? Two stories is FAR more than anyone should be trying to drop from unless there is something that will certainly kill you up top.
Title: Re: HOLY CRAP HOW DO YOU NOT BREAK YOUR LEGS?!
Post by: Josh Maciel on August 10, 2006, 06:04:23 AM
Yeah I did't notice I put only in there when I was just guessing the height. But I have done something nearly that height it was around 15 feet. Now there is an extra 5 feet so yeah it was high. I never ment to put 'only' there. But hasn't anyone ever watch Kyle XY when Kyle jumped off the second story roof...easy stuff he wasn't hurt at all (sarcasm). Now will Itry that high of jump of course...not.

If we think of that one David Belle documentary... he does a jump like that.  I mean, not QUITE as high, but still something that the rest of us wouldn't dare try.  I'm not saying that something like that is all right to do... but I'm just amused by the double standard.  Anyone BUT Belle will be criticized for that jump.  Of course, we also have to take into account that Belle has been doing this FAR longer than anyone else in the world has and that by the time Parkour started spreading, he already had ten years under his belt.  BUT.. my point's still kind of valid as just a, "Huh, isn't that interesting" kind of thing.

I still say that the jump was moronic.  I'm just pointing out something amusing.

Post by: The Manilla Gorilla on August 10, 2006, 02:21:53 PM
Its 18 years, and its not intretsting its true. He has proven himself to be able to handle those drops, and he dosnt do them for red bull. Now I'm not going to try to guess this guys reasons for doing this drop. Also i know this is just one video but in this video his rolls didnt look that good, and neither did his landings. So from this one video it dosnt seem like he could handle that drop.
Title: Re: HOLY CRAP HOW DO YOU NOT BREAK YOUR LEGS?!
Post by: Flippusmn on August 10, 2006, 04:13:57 PM
I think that video is quite old, and I also think that this guy can handle those kind of jumps from previous things. If I remember corectly Korni, if it is the Korni I'm talking about, has been doing PK for 8 years or something like that and was cocky because he was talking about not pratcing the basics and still being amazing. Just stuff that interested other people  :-\ ::) :P. This was somtime around last fall. eh w/e he still did the jump and looked like he was comfortable even if his landing and roll was bad. I would agree that nobody should do jumps like those even though I have seen higher, like those huge backflips that those asian people do in like thiland or something.

So..... why didn't his legs break? Maybe there was something under the grass? :o Or he's mad and lucky.

didnt someone in Jump London (its been so long since i've seen it) do a 3 story drop on a battle ship? or was it a 2....or something. anyway there is very little that would provoke me to make that jump, i'd have to think hard about taking the drop or fighting for my life

Not only was the jump surprising to see, but the wall run was sick! Holy crap, I could only do like... 1 step on the wall, and he did like 4 or 5! Wow, I wish I could do that.

And I actually did jump something that high, or roughly close to it. I was freaking out when I did it, though, and yeah I really hurt my leg badly, but surprisingly I didn't break it. Wow, looks like God does love me afterall.

Post by: bubbagump08 on September 22, 2006, 03:41:49 PM
Holy Moly! That was a huge jump. People have fallen from bigger stuff and haven't broke anything, so I'm not too surprised that he didn't. Although I am surprised that he would even think about attempting that. So far the biggest thing I have jumped (actually jumped, not dropped) from is a backstop at a baseball field. I'm assuming it was over 12' although I am not certain.

the wall he did a wall run on is slanted.

well it kinda makes you wonder what the human body is really capable of with intense focus, now just imagine if those guys knew how to roll, they'd just stand right up and walk away.

(not saying other *certain famous* traceurs have not done things that they put intense focus into)

Only 6.5 meters? No way, looked higher but it could be the way they shot it. I've backfliped off a 13,5  feet high slide and from up there it didn't look to bad. 

Seriously though, I physically measured the jump before doing it and it was 13,5 foot, and here's what it looked like;

Now, looking at his video, it looks WAY bigger then 19 feet.
