What is Parkour? Well remember the opening scene in Casino Royal were Bond is chasing the baddie all over the place jumping of all sorts of obstacles? Or the recent fast food ad where the bloke runs, jumps, leaps his way to the “restaurant” before the breakfast menu closes? Well that’s Parkour.
After watching a recent Youtube addition by local parkour exponent RoninConan I did a little searching and discovered that the Australian Parkour Association has a Canberra chapter that holds classes. Canberra Parkour practitioners also featured on Stateline last year.
Below is some impressive footage of some locals showing off their talents from a few months back.
Stuntprincess has brought our attention to some AWESOME parkour footage from the Canberra short film The Transit which I’ve embeded below.
