Parkour goes ‘x’

Posted by: Kate Torgovnick May

Kind of like skateboarding without the skateboard, parkour is a physical art form in which practitioners, run, jump, twist and flip off the landscapes around them. In this video trailer for TEDxYouth@Alexandria, several adventurous young TEDx’ers backflip their way through the Egyptian city, spreading the power of “x” as they show off their parkour maneuvers.

    Great video! That looked like a lot of fun to film with the x’s. It also adds another level of difficulty for the traceurs.
