Parkour in Budapest with Tomi Nemeth

pic

I've captured the following images together with parkour practitioner, Tomi Nemeth in Budapest, Hungary in several days. When I asked him what is the main motivating factor in parkour, he told me that he enjoys beautiful and challenging spots in cities and also in nature. Venues included the Buda Castle (several spots) and the tunnel at the Buda end of the Chain Bridge. (by Zsolt Repasy, http://zsoltrepasy.com/ )

Ciné Parkour

cine parkour

2011 has seen two big events for parkour: the broadcast of Concrete Circus and the release of Dr Julie Angel’s first book, Ciné Parkour, which is now available to buy on Amazon.

Julie has spent the last 6 years researching, filming and participating in parkour, culminating in a PhD thesis that is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the discipline. One for the Christmas list.

Storm Freerun Outtakes

The One Thousand.

On Saturday 11th December, a small number of hardened athletes from Parkour Generations gathered at a gymnasium in south east London to find out if something was possible: one thousand muscle ups. Each.

Staying for only the first 8 hours and completing a mere 300 muscle ups, I can’t pretend that I had much more than a brief a taste of what the guys went through that day, but what I experienced certainly had a distinct and lasting flavour.

Blane talks of the dark places visited by those who took part. My recollection of the day is a little broken, and so are these words. If you take them and magnify them tenfold, it will perhaps give some indication of what happened.

The Moments Between. A parkour coffee table book.

In 2008, parkour and buildering photographer Andy 'Kiell' Day travelled with respected traceurs Blane and Thomas to Italy, in Thomas's 1976 Citroën 2CV. After much hard work he's finally published a coffee table book documenting the trip. The photographs are accompanied by 8,000 words detailing their exploits and discussing themes such as fear, appropriation of space and creating identity through personal challenge.

The book is now for sale and can be bought here: http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1787358....

[Kiell already linked this in the "Tricks OK" thread, I just want to be sure people don't miss this.]

"Wait, is this the new Audi commercial? Hey, he dropped his chicken. She's kinda hot, in a British sorta way," are all thoughts running through my head while watching this latest offering from a couple dudes I met way back when Parkour was still in its "look I'm walking (but I still need to hold mommy's hand)" stage. It's no secret that I'm fucking old, which through inductive reasoning, would mean these guys are old too. I thought Parkour was for 13 year olds who weren't popular enough to make the basketball team?

But no. Here's a video of some old dudes doing Parkour, which is like watching Sean Connery do James Bond, i.e. exactly how it should be. They make everything look better. It's bigger, harder, more stylish, more stylish, more stylish. You might be 11 years old and have your black belt in Tae Kwon Do, but I can still kick your ass six ways to Sunday.

I like this video a lot....
