Haha, so true. It was here before free running came into the media spotlight, and it'll be here after the spotlight fades.

They're referring to the World Freerunning Championships.

The catch up report at 11 was the worst bit, baisicly was like " free running is known as parkour in france, its combining urban attitude with aesthetic movements"

*facepalm*

was a sick day so many insane things new movements was very inspiring

and I don't care, and neither should any of you, about the politcs, about the name.

I have come to realise something recently that i am a free runner, i am a tracuer and a few of the main ideas of parkour and free running are the same. To better your self, To be strong to be usefull. Both of these ideas are held in the heart of dedicated practitioners of both activities and discplines.

one thing we have to do for our passion, our passion in movement, is to educate people about safe training, to give our time to help other wanting to learn, screw the polictics, screw the divides, we train hard we train safe, we need to educate the new comers, to save them and the respect of our discplines. This in my mind is FreeRun love. the love for movement, the love for all practitioners, the enviroment, and the willingness to help others.

*EDIT* it was sponsered by barkleycard UF were competing and also assisting in the running of things etc.

FreeRun love

peace
