They Call Him the Monkey King





This morning I found a video of a man in India who has all the makings of a parkour legend. I couldn't embed the video, so you'll have to view it on the youtube site. And I apologize in advance for the ad at the beginning. But the move this guy makes around the :35 mark is one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen.

P.S.: I wish there were a few more monkey queens out there.

Here's a video of some traceuses (as female practitioners of parkour are called) in action.

I'm pretty sure if you live in a large city in your country that you can take up parkour classes, either for free or for a small amount (eg: Australia). Parkour requires a lot of core fitness. I agree though, they'd be pretty awesome ninjas! :D
