  1. That Parkour seems to be difficult… and dangerous D: But i thonk it is great and fantastic. I´m from Mexico, I don´t know how do I ran into this blog but I watched the video and it got my attention because a friend of mine does that “sport” too. I think I will come back here to your blog sometimes 🙂 nice video.

  2. Thanks, Enrique! Parkour is difficult at first but it’s really fun! I worked with Danny on this project and I do parkour and I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Definitely come back, because Danny has some great stuff on his blog! You should check it out at:

    And if you want to see some other parkour videos, check out my friends and I:

    Have fun and train safe!

  3. Absolutely loved your presentation on the art form of Parkour. I had memories of playing the game Mirrors Edge while watching the video and if I had more time on my hands, I would love to explore this form of exploration. I love the idea of freedom and going from point A to point B in the most creative way possible and I can’t help but feel I would also be in a lot better shape if I did this!
    How would you say Parkour increased your physical conditioning?

  4. I still don’t understand why Michael and Dwight were not doing Parkour. I know they suck, but why isn’t it parkour? Anyways, I think I just feel bad for them. I loved this video, initially I was always scared for Jon whenever he did it but I felt a whole lot better when he said he usually gets hurt while walking away from a jump/trick (I don’t know what to call it). Do you need to be physically built to do this? I’m kind of interested in trying but I don’t know if I can handle it, Jon makes it look pretty easy. Anyways, good job guys!
