Thread: Le Parkour

  1. #31

    Le Parkour video?

    Does anyone have that video of David Belle doing LE Parkour, but it was title something like Spiderman. The video had clips of him doing stuff with Eminem song in it.

    Thanks

    How do you pronounce "Le Parkour?"
    "If you like metal you're my friend" -- Manowar

    "I am the cosmic storms, I am the tiny worms" -- Dimmu Borgir

    I don't know the phonetic alphabet, but I'll try to explain...
    "Le" (not sure if I have to explain this, but) the 'e' is similar to the 'u' in "turn"
    "Par" - the 'a' is pronounced like it is in "Pal" or the first 'a' in "California"
    "Cour" - like "tour".

    And roll the r's.

    I have officially made it my pursuit to be able to do that. In a year, I resolve to have it perfected. In two years, I will use it in the ring. I think the technique is really cool. I saw on a website how they have a reccommended way to land, to take off, etc. it was pretty technical.

    hey sevie, I started working on it this past summer, it synergizes real well with my capoeira. Turned out there was a group around here that did it, most of them half my age but I get together with them about once amonth or more to screw around with this sort of thing.

    I put my kid in capoeira, and he loves it. He wanted me to try, and the instructor doesn't charge us (he charges everyone else though. He spars with me and also the other thai instructor, so he says we're family) - can't beat the price, and the training is awesome. My second job pretty much stops me from training judo anymore, so for the past several months it's been muay thai and capoeira.

    so you're doing it now?! Awesome! Is this with the same guy you were telling me about back in the day?

    I'm still doing it, I had to switch groups for logistic reasons (hope to return in about a year) but I'm doing it with another group that's much closer and as much fun. I know for a fact it's because of capoeira that the parkour is happening for me at all.

    It's simpler than you think.
