[APK-News]David Belle says: Flips are now Parkour

rssIcon.gif David Belle says: Flips are now Parkour

David Belle held an international press conference today. Mark Toorock, the Tribe and the APK Alliance were joined by Parkour Generations, Urban Freeflow, Parkour North America, and the Yamakasi. We all met at the take-off of the Manpower gap, where David Belle announced that flips are now considered Parkour. He demonstrated that doing the Manpower gap with a gainer back full was actaually a lot easier than just jumping it normally.

Several scientists including physicists, aereonautical engineers, and several other specialists were there to record the event and run calculations. They determined that any rotation (front/back flips) actually increased the height gained during the flip, while twisting motions increased the forward momentum.

Read more to see the video of the event, including super slow motion footage of the attempts.
