Terrible Representation of Parkour and Freerunning PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 05 June 2008
A group of teens in the UK have posted videos on YouTube with Parkour in the title - the videos feature them using a graveyard at a church as their playground. This is terribly disrespectful and not in the spirit of Parkour or free running at all. The boys have complained that "when you live in the country there's not much else to do" - I guess they didn't see the Seattle training video, Erwan's video, or any number of woodland training. Regardless - as traceurs and Freerunners we stay off certain properties out of respect - Memorials rank top of the list, especially those memorializing the deceased. If you can't find somewhere better than a graveyard or memorial to practice - don't practice. This is an embarrassment to our discipline. Read more for link to the article. - Updated and will continue to update as more publications pick up ths story and make us all look worse.

Teens used graveyard for James Bond-style YouTube stunts

Great - more coverage of this
