What's that thing called where people jump around buildings and stuff?

Recommended Posts

I was lucky enough to catch DJ Yoda recently - he was great. As well as DJing he was VJing, and that included some great clips of people doing that thing where they jump between buildings, and generally do acrobatics in the streets.

 

I know it's got a name, anyone know what it is? I wanted to search on YouTube.

Isn't it called parkour?? A strange name, the derivation of which totally escapes me - as does the desire to indulge in this strange "sport".

It is called Parkour, which is French and means 'the art of displacement'

I've only ever seen parkour being done live once. This kid leapt over my side gate that leads onto the garden, ran across the lawn then up over the bench. He then jumped onto the dividing fence and up onto the hut roof and into the trees and over onto the other garden, he was like a tiny monkey.

The five or six coppers that were following him simply bunched up at the gate.

I take it by "Jump" you mean having sex.

 

When I was a little boy (about 8 ) my uncle used to make me ring saunas and ask "how much for a jump"

 

In this day and age he would finish up on some government list for that.

And you should be too I think it is disgusting.
