    Dude must have had his "ROOS" on! I think I would have broke a toe several times.

    I'd say he'd be an upset to any cop. Let's just hope he's not into crime. This is actually an "extreme" "sport." Not so much here, but in other countries, I believe mostly Asian countries. Imagine Jackie Chan. Kinda like skateboarding without skateboards. I've seen much crazier stuff than that guy, but he was one heck of a jumper. Those 12-15 foot walls were something.

    Dexterous though he is, I doubt he can run > 800 fps or so. :D

    I am amazed at the skills when it comes to landing - the need to absorb the shock and then still continue.

    I probably could have done some of that 40 years ago - and actually in part did when doing army assault course practice - just not so extreme!

    Wow - he made some really long wall to wall jumps. I would've missed and dashed my chin out. I wonder if that guy has a "blooper" video.

    There was video somewhere of another guy with giraffe legs who liked running at and jumping over (thankfully, parked) cars.

    okay, where to start? "could I catch him?" answere: no, not just 'no', but 'hell no'! Not on mybirthday, not on his birthday, not on YOUR birthday. He lost me at the first jump. He is fast- I am the 'antifast'. If I had to catch him, I would run in the opposite direction, hoping he'd make a full lap around the planet, and I'd clothesline him as he went by. But run him down, not gonna hapn, capn.

    I believe this is the same guy. Amazing, but I bet his knees are hamburger by the time he's 50.

    He's fast now, but sooner or later he will pay for the folly of his youth. This is an extreme sport...I saw a documentary about this subject that was filmed in London.

    It is fascinating I suppose, but I got tired watching it. Besides, we all know that youth and enthusiam will always be overcome by age and cunning. Let me get my nomex gear on now...

    I too, have seen film docs on this style of sport. It looks like a bunch of frustrated bored young men needing an outlet previously provided by hard manual labor, the military and hunting.
    It is all the rage in France, I must wonder if the two Islamo Facist yuts that got French fried while fleeing from the gendarmes were not trying out some of the same techniques?
