I am not sure but, have you seen the movie Yamakasy?? (French movie, kickbutt cool)
There are those guys who run around the city and climb on buildings and jump a lot and run fast http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
I think it's the same thing.
Something really cool, if it is what i think.
I do that sometimes too, but not like a crazy man cause i'm not very athletic too and I don't wanna like fall somewhere high and shiznack.

Ok, free running is nothing illegal. It's about turning urban landscape into a playground. Clearing all obstacles you come across. It rarely has the law in it at all. So please, stop saying the cops will catch you! And, you don't get injured if you practice. So again, if you think you will get hurt, then don't do the sport.
