Some more Parkour video

By johnboy 20 January 2009 36

Parkour – The ancient French martial art of running away.

I like saying that because it deeply annoys both the French and kung fu freaks.

Either way here’s some more new parkour video of around Canberra. A bit of a worry seeing the Commonwealth Park castle used for vicarious fun, they’ll need to close more of it if word spreads.

It was posted by baynej with the following note:

    Yes Canberra’s a hole but here we can see some people try and make the best of it!
    Ps. Parkour is a new sport and you jump over stuff and its real cool to watch!
    Just like in the start of James bond!!

Everyone on here that has bagged it are probably JEALOUS, overweight, unfit bags of s#*t, who couldn’t be bothered removing themselves from in front of their computer screens, to set foot into the great outdoors and doing any kind of fitness what so ever.

Oh man – are you a magician or something – how do you know so much about me?! Far out this is freaky!

I said probably JEALOUS, overweight, unfit bags of s#*t, I didn’t say you are a JEALOUS, overweight, unfit bag of s#*t. But I guessed right…yipeeeeee!

I agree I think it’s great to see kids using their time doing something positive.

If you can do better then prove it.

No thanks Granny – I’d rather not look like a try-hard knob! 😛

I reckon these lads could do some good parkour up and down Anzac Parade :p

And I’ll pay the sly disco beats of DFA’s MIA remix – people need to hear that stuff.

Better than hanging around bus interchanges hassling people for small changefor a cheeseburger.

Very True.

c’mon, you cynical ones tell me you didn’t muck around as a kid – and if you’d had access to a video camera (like most kids do nowadays) – you’d have recorded and edited it too… and put it up on YouTube…

Some of you are just waaaaaaaay to cynical… this is just the “showing off” of this generation – nothing wrong with it… (as long as they are not harming others)

It’s not like they are burning palm trees and filming it 😛

And third it; even Xin, the Urban Ninja, had to start somewhere.

A fourth big-up to the energetic young’uns. Hands up whose kids of a similar vintage are currently hunched over some form of video game controller or slumped in front of the idiot box?

Geez man, give them a go. They are trying, that’s a good thing. Yes? they will get better, thwey will not end up being body doubles for jabba the Hutt, which a lot of teenagers that cruise the mall could do…
