    There is a difference between free running and parkour. Free running is running without stopping and working with your environment to keep moving, it USES parkour and other methods. They names sometimes used interchangeably but they are two similar but different things.

    It`s not really "free" running if they`re only allowed to run in that skate park area now is it?

    the therm free running is always been together with parkour. parkour is the original (french) therm, free runing is the english way to say it.

    not a new word at all

    "Free Running: Red Bull Art Of Motion In Sao Paulo. They`re calling `parkour,` `freerunning` now?"

    Well, no, this IS freerunning.

    Parkour is taking the shortest path from point A to point B, even if it means jumping from rooftops to street level or going straight over a wall.

    Freerunning is using objects to do tricks like spins and flips while running around.

    Parkour - Getting from point A to point C.

    Free Running - show off version of parkour, unnecessary moves, and jazz hands from point A to point B to point C.

    There is a difference ; Learn it, live it, love it

    You guys remind of of Star Trek geeks who insist on the difference between a "Trekkie" and a "Trekker".

    I don`t know what either of those are; I was just disputing the caption because in its attempt to point out the ignorance of the video, it merely highlighted the ignorance of whoever wrote the caption.

    FYI the difference between parkour and freerunning only matters to those who are interested in either or both. Please keep that in mind at all times, thank you.

    Actually Saskuel is more correct. Look it up and you`ll see that it started as parkour in france as an efficient means to get places. It was miss-labeled free running by some London documentary, and then people started showboating which became free-running

    Parkour is like a philosophy of getting from point A to B efficiently. This is just gymnastics on concrete

    My kids have more energy than that on diet cola alone. Give them a red bull and they`d run up the side of a building till they run out of floors.

    I think they completely missed the point of Parcour. It`s intended to be a useful technique of conquering obstacles in a fluid and efficient manner. Not a technique that used far more energy than necessary to get over a wall.

    These people are stupid.

    ...wait hold on... it was a sport designed around using the existing urban terrain as a "park"... so they built a park to mimic the urban terrain, except smaller?

    It did most definitely not start as free running and got screwed up by some Europeans. Parkour was first and then free running. And they are not the same thing

    byrnjargonn is right.

    Parkour is getting from Point A to B the fastest...not gay flips or breakdancing moves.

    Freerunners are just people that showoff in urban terrain....

    feel educated.

    "It did most definitely not start as free running and got screwed up by some Europeans. Parkour was first and then free running. And they are not the same thing"

    Parkour was actually invented by the French, who called it "Par course" roughly translating to "per trip". The name was then butchered by English-speaking Americans.

    And Free Running is faggotry.

    Freerunning was invented by the people who can`t skate or ride bmx that well.
