Parkour

Parkour (French pronunciation: ​[paʁkuʁ]) is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assistive equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement, and other movements as deemed most suitable for the situation. Parkour's development from military training gives it some aspects of a non-combative martial art.

Inspired by the videogame Mirror's Edge, the people behind Ampisound, a channel on Youtube dedicated to parkour videos, created a video featuring one of their group cosplaying Mirror's Edge protagonist Faith, while doing a variety of Mirror's Edge-inspired parkour moves. What came out of it is pretty amazing.

Damien Walters 2011 I love it when he jumps through the moving truck and when he flips into bed. This must take hours of training. Such talent.
