Freerunning: The Urban Landscape is Your Playground
The author performed parkour in the opening sequence of the James Bond film Casino Royale
Contains 100 fantastic full-color photographs of the author in action
Parkour is the art of movement and action. Its cofounder, S bastien Foucan, has performed it in movies, commercials, and the music video for Madonna’s song "Jump." In this book, Foucan displays his gravity-defying moves while sharing the inspirational philosophy of free running. With electrifying photos of Foucan in action, the book offers a new approach to how one moves through the urban landscape and the velocity at which one lives. The author codeveloped parkour in Paris and has popularized and promoted it around the world. Similar to skateboarding, parkour is more than just wonderful exercise: it is a whole new perspective on how to conquer the obstacles in the city -- walls are for vaulting, rails are for riding, and steps are for jumping.
