Parkour: run, jump, swing, roll, GO

What is it about seeing the 'Red Bull' logo on anything that makes you think, god this is going to be exciting?  Great marketing for one, but also it's also always bloody true.  On a peruse of Vimeo I discovered this Red Bull video on Parkour.  I looked up the term Parkour and it's extremely cool - it is a holistic training discipline using movement, it was developed out of military obstacle course training.  The idea is to keep your momentum going using any type of movement like running, climbing, vaulting, flipping, rolling, swinging, jumping... all whilst trying to maintain balance and safety.  Parkour has become increasingly popular from movies like District 13 and is a very cool thing to watch, especially if it is filmed in some sort of cool Urban space.  This one was set in the Turkish Old City of Mardin.
