Assassins Creed!!!

Assassins creed is a fantastic new game coming out on the 360 and PS3 in 2007. Its coming from Ubisoft, the people behind the Prince of Persia series. The game focuses around an assassin who's mission it is to take out various historical figures. The most appealing part of this game for us is the
free roaming aspect, in which you can use "Parkour" to scale buildings, wall run, arm jump, tic tac, gap jump and precisions with amazing fluidity, that knocks any "freerunning" game out the water. We havent played it ourselves but from what we've seen it looks like an amazing must-have for all traceurs! Lol I swear we havnt been payed to endorse this game it just looks that damn good. Keep you updated! Check out these links:

The name's Foucan... Sebastien Foucan

Went along to our local cinema to see our man Sebastien's big screen debut in Casino Royale. And we didn't have to wait long to see a 30ft Seb head bearing down on us. We we're right near the front so he looked massive for a little guy! None of us realised quite how involved Seb's character, Mollaka, would be and we're so excited to see a full 10 mins of Bond vs Parkour. It had an interesting start with Seb cheering on a fight with a snake and a ferret or something, quicky realised he's been spotted by MI6 and wastes no time to hot tail it out of there into a conviently obstacle packed building site, bring on the pk! Arm jumps, tic tacs, some serious buildering and some mad gaps. One of the coolest pk scenes was when Seb jumps from one floor of a building, onto a moving lift then onto the next floor leaving Bond shaken. But there's no out witting 007, who although taken some serious drops and bashes, did his best to keep up with Seb's lightning speed. But when you're getting chased by a man with a licence to kill, its only a matter of time before you're numbers up, even when you're blatently biting moves from District 13 to get away. (You'll know it when you see it). All in all it's a fantastic achievement for Le Parkour in general, Bond movies attract massive audiences accross the globe and Parkour will be forever immortalised in the bond mythology. Den denen dern den, denden, den denen dern den denden deneeeeeeeeeern den dern der. lol

Saiyan rating:
Parkour: 10/10
General movie: too much poker and bleeding eyes

Osram Milan 2006 - Pics and Vids

The event was blast, completely booked out with 160 Traceurs from all over the world.

An old empty warehouse was completely converted into a Parkour paradise. This time the obstacles consisted of a scaffolding infrastructure dressed with hard wood, sturdy and safe for Traceurs at all skill levels to use. Osram provided an unlimited supply of lighting ideas, bringing a really dramatic atmosphere to the place. The graffiti artists added the final touch and the DJ injected some andrenaline pumping music ensuring a high spirited atmosphere. All obstacles were then checked by Parkour trainers to ensure for safety and we we’re ready to go.

The event was packed with a sweet show and non stop work shops. It all started with some warming up, mobilization of joints, stretches and Parkour oriented strength training to get the pulses raised and get everyone ready for a the day ahead. Throughout the day people where really pushing their levels, sharing ideas and inspiration and coming up with some really creative movements. The day finished up with a nice free session where everyone squeezed that last bit of energy out, if they had any left.

Thanks again the all the Participants and People that made this event happen.

Till next time.
