Default front/back flips, Needed to be a good traceur?

Do you need to be able to front/back flip to be good at parkour?

People say you cant do parkour if you cant flip and laugh at me because of it. I hurt it and freerun my way up a building and wait for them to give up. lol its funny.

I do sideflips and dont get bullied. And when i could do backflips I got rimmed.

Understand that this art has been created by few soldiers in Vietnam to escape or reach: and this is the spirit I'd like parkour to keep. You have to make the difference between what is useful and what is not in emergency situations. Then you'll know what is parkour and what is not. So if you do acrobatics things on the street with no other goal than showing off, please don't say it's parkour. Acrobatics existed long time ago before parkour.
