That clip from Yamakazi is really amazing.   Smiley

(btw that's not French they're speaking.  It sounds more like Russian to me, or at least a related Slavic language.  /language geek)

From wikipedia

"Yamakasi - Les samoura´s des temps modernes is a 2001 French movie written by Luc Besson."

Huh.  I wonder why they're speaking a Slavic language then? 

Maybe it's a dubbed-over translation?   Huh

"Yamakasi - Les samoura´s des temps modernes is a 2001 French movie written by Luc Besson."

Wow, I forgot it was written by Luc Besson.

I remembered that he also wrote The Fifth Element, but a quick look at his filmography and I see a few others that I've enjoyed: Nikita (La Femme Nikita), Leon (The Professional), and The Transporter 1/2/3.   Along with many other action flicks.

Hi VFFers,

Another great source of information on Parkour can be found here......

http://www.parkourgenerations.com

I have joined the forum and posted a topic about using VFF's for Parkour - maybe I will receive some interesting replies.
Have a great Sunday all.

Regards
Robert.

Beat you to that link Tongue, Parkour generations does go to the States occasionally to do a training session. So get the chance to do that if you can.

I heard MTV might experiment with having music on their channel as well.

Parkour requires a lot of stamina and core strength. Two things i don't have. I used to be a lot more limber but years of inactivity and age have me at a point where attempting any of those moves would land me in the emergency room. I wish there was a Parkour group around my area. I would definitely join.

Try the local boards here, they have one for every state. This site is great for people wanting to get started, and no you don't have to be in shape or have equipment to train, it's what I love about it Smiley
