    when i was a kid, my friends and I tried our own version of freerunning wherever we went. diving over fences, flipping off car bumpers, handsprings and flips in the back yard, walking on our hands wherever we could.

    we didn't call it "freerunning" though, we didn't even have a name for it. it was gymnastics + action movie crap we made up + trying to be spiderman.

    i wonder if i'm too old to take this back up again.

    maybe they have some freerunning gyms? :noes:

    near the end, these two guys run up to a wall, coming out of a parking garage. one guy runs up the wall and does a backflip. fine. i see that all the time in these movies. The OTHER guy though, he puts his hands on the wall and flips over/around them! it looks crazy. i want to learn that.

    HOLLA

    Also, if that kid ever needed to run from the cops he'd be home free.
