I do not. It does look like fun. If I were in my teens I would try it. Today my bones would snap in two if I jumped from 2 stories, etc.

He chased a parkour expert in the beginning of Casino Royale. I don't know if he himself does it.

haha, true. But there are certain things that can be done more or less on flat ground and things that can not. Those without enough skill are smart enough to stay away from skills that could kill you.

Or not. See: "The Internet" for examples of people doing stupid things.

My good friend did parkour for a while, but not anymore.

Something about landing a gorilla leap on his head.

And about knees that stopped working in the typical "bending" fashion.

I dod parkour for a while and it is amazing fun if you are lean enough. It does however takes alot of guts. I had no problem with the higher jumps but i was scared out of my mind for the gorrila jumps. it all ended for me when i jumped on a wall 3.6 meters high when it was dark to make some nice pictures of some fireworks. I calculated the height wrong when i jumped off and i fractured my heel. 3 years ago and i stil feel it. No problems while running or thaiboxing but i do feel it.

I used to do it in Russia, A LOT. The whole European "scooter" style is pretty dominant there so parkour along with techno and excessive female nudity was in.

Thing is it's suddenly not that cool once you buy your first suit.
