*ehem* Gather round children. It's story time.

Parkour is much more than the movement itself. By definition, Parkour is the art of moving through your environment using only your body and the surroundings to propel yourself. It can include running, jumping, climbing, even crawling, if that is the most suitable movement for the situation. Parkour could be grasped by imagining a race through an obstacle course; the goal is to overcome obstacles quickly and efficiently, without using extraneous movement. The movement does not define the philosophy, the philosophy defines the movement. Your goal is to not only reach your destination with speed, grace, and efficiency, but to also be one with your environment and to be able to respond to it immediately without thought. You may think a lot of the things tracuers do are inefficient. This is because we train the most inefficient things possible to make them efficient. All of the different vaults we use take less energy than directly jumping over the object, They also keep your center of gravity lower so the impact is much lower and less strenuous on your body. By doing these things you learn to respond to your environment without thought as i said before. In doing so you can remain more focused which allows your movements to flow more conserving more energy. So really, Parkour is about being in a state of mind that will not slow you down in a situation that requires you to move quickly and efficiently such as an emergency.

@ cas: Spiderman doesn't display any of the movements that are generally used in Parkour, so I wouldn't say that it started the movie craze. Casino Royale on the other hand has Sebastien Foucon in it, one of the people who helped David belle establish the art. I'm sure we've all seen the beginning scene of that movie. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Huh, so I'm not the only one.

I either play games or do a combination of Parkour & Ninjitsu, where I do Parkour in a restricted area and try not to get spotted. It's pretty fun and keeps your senses keen and your mind & body sharp.

The Ninja were skilled at infiltrating RESTRICTED AREAS. What do you want me to infiltrate, a beach? And besides, it's training, I have to go into restricted areas otherwise there's no point.

And no, you don't have to. Ninja trained on their farms, or in other safe locations. Not in restricted areas where the consequences could be fatal for the ninja noobs.

Xanatos2007
05-04-2009, 10:03 PM
Training of their farms? And I suppose they practiced sentry removal and combat on scarecrows. How exactly do you practice wall climbing and evading highly trained and alert guards on a FARM? They didn't live in Masyaf you know.

drfeelgood8849

nope, lauren's right on this one. ninjitsu was originally created and trained in the farm village Iga, japan.

Xanatos2007

Well, I don't have a farm, so this'll have to do. And when I say 'restricted' I just mean 'restricted. As in construction sites, loading bays, etc... not the CIA headquarters or something.

wait i thought you lived in Australia and last time i checked
america is the only who has the actual CIA
Australian Security Intelligence Service (ASIS) is the Australian equivalent of the CIA, and is the overseas service.

Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) is the intelligence service which operates within Australia.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is the equivalent of the FBI with handing Federal Crimes within Australia, and it also assists ASIO with intelligence gathering and prosecution.

I was giving an example of a high-security installation. Well, I've never been to the CIA headquarters before so I don't know for sure. Anyway, why are we talking about me all of a sudden?

Lol. You don't stalk the Ninja, the Ninja stalks you.

But no, I'm not a Ninja. I just do Ninjitsu, like how not everybody that drives is a racer.
