Ok, that settles it. I’m moving to Europe. Do you know what the latest, greatest sport is over there? It’s called Le Parkour. Here’s how le-parkour.com defines it:
The Parkour is the art of movement, a new french sport created by David Belle and Sebastien Foucan. The objective is clearing all the obstacles which you have on your way, climbing a wall, a stair, a roof, or a tree; all in the research of an aesthetic and original movement. People who practice this sport are called Traceurs. Training is physical, but also reflects a moral philosophy with it’s own values. More than a sport, it’s an art, an everyday lifestyle!
To me it looks like a cross between skateboarding without the board and ninjitsu. Basically, they are climbing and jumping around like a bunch of Super Mario Bros over there. How rad is that!? They take themselves super serious about it. “Traceurs”…like secret agents or something. Man I love the Europeans. So progressive. All of a sudden buildering feels two dimensional. I gotta start practicing up on my jujitsu rolls.
