[APK-News]Article on Yamakasi, Legitimization of Parkour in

rssIcon.gif Article on Yamakasi, Legitimization of Parkour in France

Muse_of_Fire writes...

My friend in Paris sent this clipping to me. It's dated June 12

and was featured in Direct Matin which is kind of a supplement type

publication tied to the national dailies. The article basically points

toward a trend in France for legitimizing parkour, which I think is

really cool! The article is about the Yamakasi, and a demonstration they did earlier that week.

You can read the original article in French (http://directmatin.directmedia.fr/v1/Pages-Presse/Archives-Telechargement.aspx), or read more for Muse's translation. Thanks, Muse!

...You

have to pinch yourself to believe it. You'd think you were in a 3D,

high-def video game. Like Mario Brothers or Sonic, adolescents jump

from wall to wall, as if they had springs in their legs, shock

absorbers in their thighs, and scotch tape for hands. Slippery walls,

emptiness, concrete rooftops? Nothing gets in the way of their

progression, the whole city becomes a huge playground...
