A group of parkour daredevils from the Storror Team do their best Mirror’s Edge impression as they run and jump from rooftop to rooftop, overlooking the busy urban streets of Hong Kong many stories below, as they pretend to be chased by a non-existent security force.
Freerunner Jason Paul meets up with fellow parkour athletes Kenichi, Zen, Yakuwa, and Yuutarou in downtown Tokyo, then lands at Edo Wonderland – a picture-perfect theme park that replicates life in the 17th century Edo era, samurais, ninjas and all. BTS footage here.
Run along with athlete Calen Chan as he heads down the Skyladder parkour course built down the side of Tianman Mountain in China. Not only is the 999 step-tall course the longest on the planet, but its built on a 45° incline to add to the challenge. The slide part looks like fun.
By capturing overhead shots with a drone, this amazing video provides a unique perspective compared to typical parkour and freerunning clips, transforming its acrobat, Ilko “Ill” Iliev into a the player in a top-down video game. It gets totally insane when the rappelling kicks in.
You’d think that a beer belly might be at odds with your martial arts and parkour skills, but you’d be wrong. After struggling with his mental health and weight gain from meds, Sébastien Charron gives all of us ordinary guys hope, and proves that you can’t judge a book by its cover.
We’re pretty sure we’d be caught by airport security if we tried to pull any of the shenanigans that Red Bull freerunner Jason Paul used in this video. Regardless, we’re just glad that somebody finally replaced O.J. Simpson as the new king of running to catch a flight.
A lighthearted take on the 1979 classic The Warriors replacing the original’s street thugs with Inky, Blinky, Pinky, Clyde, and Pac-Man himself. It’s a fun action-packed short from Fury Fingers, though we were hoping the Furies would turn up to play some R.B.I. Baseball.
