Parkour And Freerunning / We need to stop and rethink.
« on: April 29, 2009, 06:00:30 PM »
Let me know if its only me but the more people that start training parkour and the more videos that are being put up on the pics and vids page all seem to be mostly flips. What happened to parkour, like in the documentaries jump london and jump britian. Most of  the new comers are rushing and doing big roof jumps and a million flips. I havnt really posted that much but ive been training for a little over 2 years. I can do all these things i see in the videos but i do them once in a while not everyday  because i have respect for my body and this dicipline. All these flips are starting to make people think o parkour is just flips, and its the complete opposite. I think we need to take a step back and start renforming peple rethinking what we call parkour. Its not flips alone or big gap jumps. Its the little stuff that started it all. We need to rethink. Comment plese because our voices are the only way people can hear.

A kid came up to me while i was training and asked if im doing parkour and i said yes. Than he said where are all the flips like in the videos and thats what made me think to do this thread.

So please take this seiriously thanks.
