Great uses of body mechanics. Do you think this is real or special effects? looks real to me...

Yep, that's real. This video missed out the beginning where you saw the people training in their gym. I think they're french, if I remember correctly. They were jumping around the rooftops in London, England.

Just a little snippet of fact there!

! Paradoxbox had previously said that there were guys at his dojo who were able to ukemi smoothly from amazing heights, and I was curious to see what it looked like. Well, I think I know now...

EvilLion, are these guys the French group known as the "Yamakazi"?

Check these guys out. Also search for "Parkour" on the internet or in filesharing programs and you'll find some more great stuff. I believe it is french for "the route/path."

This fad originated in France about 3-4 years ago. They meet to recon & establish a route through the city (it isn't random but carefully planned) then they go for it. Seems to be spreading through Europe - those wacky Euro's.

Great stuff - real-life Spidermen.

Only because there will be kids who see these videos online and say "hey, I can do that!!" With proper training and a stable mind, this hobby/lifestyle can be just as safe as Martial Arts. Even safer considering you don't have to worry about another person trying to hurt you "with control.".

Honestly I think that this is one of the coolest things I've seen. I would love to have a place to be able to do things like this.

If they're the ones I think, they have actually existed for longer than that but became famous only a few years ago indeed, due to a movie featuring them. I hear the movie was crap, by the way (apart from their stunts, I guess...).

I'm impressed, and I don't impress easily!

Not a lot of margin for error in some of those moves!

It comes down to the classic youthful balance: Balls versus Brains. They have too much of one and not enough of the other!
