    Well I Just Got Done Watching This Show Called Jump|britain, It Is About These Guys That Do A Jackie Chan, Where They Run In A Striaght Line No Matter Whats In There Way If Its A Building They Climb Up And Over It. Jumping Ledges, Walls, Cars, Climbing Flag Polls. Me And My Friends Started Doing This By Jump And Climbing Up And Down A Stair Well Without Using The Stairs Itself.

    Just Wondering If U Guys Have Seen About This And If Anyone Else Does Anything Like This. Its Actually A Good Work Out.

    Isn't it called "Le Parkour" which is like french for "Free Running".

    Watch this guy, David Belle. He is pretty wacky when it comes to this.http://perso.wanadoo.fr/parkour/parkourenglish/page19.html He has quite a few vides on here for you to look at.

    I saw a show on it bout a year back. Seemed pretty interesting, I'm too fat to do it though.

    peep this. it's cyril (not sure of his last name), a pretty famous free runner/stuntman. he did a movie with belle and he was in jet li's "kiss of the dragon." he's pretty bad ass.

    The only problem with free running is if you do it in England you have to wear an amazingly dumb leather cowboy hat.
