Awesome Parkour

Freerunning through Moscow

Freerunning through Moscow

Vasiliy Patrakov takes us on a breakneck run across rooftops, up trees, down alleyways, over fences, and through the streets of Russia’s capital city – capturing the whole thing with a POV camera, so we can play along, Mirror’s Edge style.

Shade’s Russian Roof Run

Freerunner, parkour artist, and all-around high-flying daredevil James Kingston helps us experience what he sees as he jumps between roofs, up the sides of buildings, and climbs structures around Southampton, UK.

Super Parkour Bros.

Super Parkour Bros.

We don’t recall the beach level in Super Mario Bros. but it looks like a welcome break for these guys as they jump off walls, over pipes and smashing into question mark blocks. Mario also needs to keep his hat on.

RHex: Parkour Robot

RHex: Parkour Robot

University of Pennsylvania’s RHex robot has six bouncy legs which let it not only run like a screaming banshee, but it can climb stairs and spring itself into the air. While it’s designed for rescue missions, we want a toy version.

Cambridge Parkour 2

Cambridge Parkour 2

Go for a stroll a jump, a sprint and a roll through Cambridge with this first person parkour video by James Kingston, aka the man who free climbed up a 315ft. high crane. We’d be clapping if we weren’t so dizzy.

Parkour 997

Parkour 997

A team of parkour artists take on an unlikely challenger – a Porsche 997 Carrera GTS. While the car might have 402 horses and a top speed of 190mph, the athletes have a bit more ground clearance and make tighter turns.

Baku City Parkour

Baku City Parkour

Parkour artist Ryan Doyle waxes philosophical and demonstrates his acrobatic talents on the streets, alleyways, rooftops, stages, oil fields and other diverse and exotic locales of Azerbaijan’s seaside capital city.

Parkour Ghost Riding

Daniel Ilabaca, William Spencer, Tim “Livewire” Shieff pull off parkour moves using a driverless moving car as a prop. You can see the outtakes here. The song is Queens & Kings by Malakai.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Parkour

Assassin’s Creed 3 Parkour

Here’s a less silly take on Assassin’s Creed by Devin Graham, featuring Ronnie Shalvis. The parkour is still a little over-the-top, but it’s still fun to see how Connor might move in real life.

The Impossible Shot

The Impossible Shot

Since we’re now viewing it, we don’t know how impossible it really was, but using their flying drone camera, the guys at HeliPOV were able to capture a cool aerial perspective on the freerunners of 3RUN.

Cambridge Parkour

Cambridge Parkour

There are lots of ways to get across town, but Phil Doyle shows us that taking the rooftops, Mirror’s Edge-style is the fastest (if not the safest) way across the city of Cambridge.

How Not to Do Parkour

How Not to Do Parkour

We love parkour and freerunning around here, but we’re used to seeing graceful and jaw-dropping maneuvers. This is not one of those times. It’ll take a while for this dude to live this one down.

Assassin’s Creed Freerunning

Assassin’s Creed Freerunning

Devin Supertramp’s latest clip features a real-life Altaïr jumping from roofs, walls, scaffolds and other urban scenery. Stunts performed by Ronnie Shalvis. See a cool behind-the-scenes clip here.

Parkour Doggie 2

Parkour Doggie 2

A new montage of Tret the parkour dog doing what he does best. His owner’s website looks shady, but we have to hand it to both of them. The song is We Can Make The World Stop by The Glitch Mob.

Parkour Warrior God

Parkour Warrior God

You’re looking at Sergei Popviski, the master distiller behind Vitek Vodka. He also happens to be a huge fan of parkour. Let’s hope his vodka is much better than his urban acrobatic skills.

People in Motion (Trailer)

People in Motion (Trailer)

People in Motion was shot in San Diego, Seattle, and at Burning Man, and captures some of the most talented free runners in the country and unique motion control technology. (Thanks Colin!)

Finger Parkour

Finger Parkour

Ok, it’s not quite as impressive as most of the parkour and freerunning clips we post, but you have to hand it to (pun intended) these guys for proving that you can do parkour in your living room.

Parkour Cat

Parkour Cat

Is it on? Dude, is the camera on? Are you recording? Make sure you get it this time okay? You want to learn how to pull off a tic tac right? Don’t zoom in so much! Okay step back, here I go.

Stunt Poetry

Stunt Poetry

Rishi Kaneria couldn’t have picked a better title for his video. Using a Canon 60D and a bit of Twixtor magic, he was able to capture the grace and power of the movements of pro stuntman Dante Ha.

Parkour in Mardin

Parkour in Mardin

Freerunner Ryan Doyle takes us on an enchanting and enthralling parkour run through the exotic locale of Mardin, located in Turkey. Have you ever seen pigeons do backflips before? Us neither.

Storm Origins

Storm Origins

(NSFW: Lyrics) Freerunning gets as much plot as it can in this acrobatic short film. Ok, so jumping off of walls and rails isn’t really a story, but it’s still way cool – especially on fire. (Thanks, Ian!)

Tempest Academy Grand Opening

Tempest Academy Grand Opening

Footage from the grand opening of the Tempest Freerunning Academy. With a an array of walls, ramps, trampolines, bars and foam pits, it’s the parkour or freerunning enthusiast’s idea of heaven.

L.A.’s just-opened Tempest Freerunning Academy teaches you how to bounce off walls, fly through the air, and perform out-of-this-world acrobatic feats. Plus, you can be Super Parkour Mario.

There’s no shortage of inspired acrobatics in this compilation of some of the best of tricking and parkour from around the world. We appreciate seeing the names with the talent too. (Thanks Ian!)
