Storyline

Last year a team of French Free Runners captivated Londoners when they scaled some of the city's most famous landmarks from the Albert Hall to HMS Belfast for Channel 4's Jump London . This time they've decided to take on the whole country in a new project that ranges from Edinburgh to Cardiff. Free Running, or Le Parkour, involves literally leaping from roof to roof in a death-defying, yet beautiful, series of jumps, slides and somersaults. It is a discipline combining an extraordinary athleticism and lack of fear - created by Sebastien Foucan and his friends - that has spread across the world. Foucan sees Free Running as more than a spectacle, it is a way of life, with a spiritual dimension plucked from popular culture and allowing an escape from everyday reality. For Jump Britain , Foucan and his team are joined by members of the burgeoning UK Parkour scene as they tackle some of the UK's most iconic sites including Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland, the ...

For starters, Sebastien Foucan is not the "Originator" of Parkour. Big name etc yes, but originator no.

And I quote: "a load of other "Free Runners" who are not as impressive as the originator and do nothing more than sort of hang off some kerbs and so on!" If you had actually listened to the film, rather than staring inanely at the television you would have seen those other freerunners trying out a new technique of the forward flip to cat leap, which Sebastien said was "impossible"...

The script did not say that this was a "Massive sport", I'm fairly sure it said it was a growing sport, 10 people instead of 2 doing something is growth, but the fact of the matter is that its thousands of people doing it instead of a small minority. All over the globe, as the film showed viewers.

Have you tried to do any parkour? The reason behind the "boring talking" is that there is a philosophy behind it, getting over your fears, working out what your body can and cant do etc etc.

Get outside and try it sonny.
