    I told you five minutes to please stop typing like that. Do you know how moronic it makes you look? And how ridiculously annoying and frustrating it is to read for all of the other members? Please stop.

    I heard about it on CSI: NY. Apparenlty, it had something to do with their case and it was very interesting. That's the last I heard of it until now.

    I've been doing it for around two years now. I'd advise you to go to Urban Freeflow- It's the site I belong to and easily the best resource for le parkour on the web. Basically, parkour is a way to get from point A to point B as quickly and as fluidly as possible. What other people preceive as obstacles, ie- walls trees, benches fences etc. we see as things you can jump or climb over.
    The best article explaining it can be found at Urban Freeflow- Art In Motion

    I'd advise you to be careful if you do start learning the art form- don't rush into trying tricks you haven't practiced- or you will find yourself in the emergency room.

    But really, parkour is more tha "jumping off buildings" as you put it. It's a way of life, and there are several wonderful articles about the Philosophy of parkour on the urbanfreeflow site. I'd advise you to go there.

    Reminds me of that Nike commercial.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Parkour WAS in that Nike commercial, if I remember correctly.

    I'm also into Parkour and I frequent Urban Freeflow all the time. It's a great place to learn.

    First, practice some of the moves just on your own. Practice some rolls in the lawn. It's very important that you get the fundamentals down before you actually go at it.

    Second, find a good place to Parkour and go do it!

    Concentrate first on being able to integrate some of the fundamentals into your run, and when you can do that, start trying new stuff out. It's good to get a video camera operator person there to video your run, it's enlightening and it can bring about some points about what you did wrong or what you could do better.

    Good luck!
