pwn parkour!

Parkour, aka "free running", is a sport started in France by David Belle which is now quite popular in Europe and growing in popularity here in the States.

The sport focuses on efficient movement through urban spaces and practitioners are called "traceurs". Ever wanted to be like spider-man? Or skateboard without a skateboard? Well Parkour is the sport for you!

Me and a couple friends made a flash site detailing everything you need to know to PWN FACE at Parkour. The site contains instructional videos of tricks for aspiring traceurs, history, theory and a map to find parkour community sites in your area. Check it out!

For a little inspiration, here's a video of the best of David Belle:

But, before you go jumping off buildings, you might want to watch this video of crashes... ouch

Just like anything else, practice makes perfect. You gotta eat dirt before you can PWN FACE. Try practicing the moves on our parkour site and you'll be doing hardcore parkour in no time! Pwnt!
