A Real Life Spiderman -- Must See To Believe


I'm a fairly athletic guy. I've got my hockey I play weekly. Some wiffleball here and there. Elsie keeps me active, BUT THIS insane! He's incredible! Orrrrrrr, maybe he's amazing! As in a real life Amazing Spiderman!? Plus with the Amazing Spiderman 2 movie hitting theaters tomorrow, figured this was a good time to share this.

I don't know that much about "Parkour", but I have to believe this is as good an example of the activity as there is. I mean this person is truly unbelievable.

By the way, if you're as unfamiliar with Parkour as I is an explanation.....

Parkour is a holistic training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners aim to get from A to B in the most efficient way possible.They do this using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves; furthermore, they try to maintain as much momentum as is possible in a safe manner. Parkour can include obstacle courses, running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement, and the like, depending on what movement is deemed most suitable for the given situation.

Parkour is a non-competitive activity, which can be practiced alone or with others. It can be practiced in any location, but is usually practiced in urban spaces. Parkour involves seeing one's environment in a new way, and imagining the potentialities for movement around it.
