    I'm going to add le parkour to my list of realistic self defense training! If I could do half the stuff those guys could do, no one could catch me!!!

    If only we could combine le parkour with that heavyset security guard in the other video.

    some of it most of us could "do" but the idea, like some martial arts is flow, you don't want to break up the run, it should all run together fluidly....

    Exactly. Most of us could throw a punch or kick too. But that's not what makes a good martial artist.

    Parkour is awesome.

    I started doing a little parkour stuff yesterday. I suck at it, but its unbelievably fun! Great workout too, my hamstrings are soooooo sore today.

    I want to get some of my friends to do it too, because I kinda feel odd when I'm doing it by myself. Plus I might get attacked by, no joke, I've heard about this happening on a parkour forum. People tend to get ****ed off when they think you're showing off.

    All right now, son, I want you to get a good night's rest. And remember, I could murder you while you sleep.
    Hey son, I bought you a puppy today after work. But then I killed it and ate it! Hahah, Im just kidding. I would never buy you a puppy.
