When you have the ability, the movement will become beautiful.

Parkour Freestyle, that's cool. I guess he defines it more with actions than words, just as parkour should be. A language of movement.

haha I agree with all and everybody, but IF people want to over think and over analyze (assuming we can distinguish between over, under, and-just-about-right analyzing...), they should be entitled to do so, and find or create a space where they can do it, right?

Of course people could (and many do) just go out and train, but in many athletic disciplines there's been a 'search' for something more...
Being it the zen approach of many martial arts, or the sometimes cannabis indica induced perception of surfers to be on the same tracks of Lao Tzu or Buddha, lots of people are not content with boosting the biggest move, or accomplishing the most impressive trick.

Maybe a certain part of parkour accomplishes that: it gives (very) different individuals around the world a tool to peacefully confront each other and communicate on a common, otherwise quite intimate or self-reflective, topic: one's training in overcoming obstacles.

Many get away enriched, others didn't need it... but one thing doesn't (and shouldn't) exclude the other.

After all, to simply go out, move and have fun my weekend pick-up basketball was doing just about fine...

dude I agree with you Bio... so much over thinking and over analyzing everything! Just go out and train and have fun and move around!

haha Bio, i can totally imagine you saying that in real life..

dont know why i said that lol

He's a lot less philosophical about it than most people you hear arguing about how parkour's defined. Pretty simple... you and the obstacle, if you overcome yourself, you overcome the obstacle, and then it rocks and you have a good time.

...I know I'm (slightly) bios, but this guy is something else!
Nobody I have heard talking about PK, inside or outside the parkour environment has the same charisma, and fire burning inside as David...

I'm willing EVEN to accept the new (from him) concept of Parkour Freestyle, which obviously IS NOT PARKOUR! ...LOL!

good video, good to be reminded that there is more to it then just jumping over things and climbing walls; also reminds me that i need to remember and focus on the philosophy behind parkour as much as i can, as well as physical practice.
