Take Flight partner Urban Vanguard has recently undertaken an initiative to bring Parkour parks to New York City. Working in accordance with the New York based non-profit Open Road NY, Urban Vanguard is deciding on locations and raising funds for the undertaking. They have already held a BBQ fundraiser, and in accordance with Take Flight and other organizations UV is planning other fundraisers at well.
Below is a video released by Urban Vanguard featuring Sha Mualimm-Ak speaking about the Parkour parks undertaking.
We at Take Flight couldn’t be more excited for this endeavor and what it means for Parkour in the U.S. and around the world. If you would like to be a part of this initiative you can find our more at UrbanVanugard.com and at the Urban Vanguard Facebook page. You can also donate direction to the cause at the following link.
Here is another great video from Julie Angel and Parkour Generations. Finding a different route through the city Stephane Vigroux, Forrest, Sébastien Goudot, and Chris Keighley utilize Parkour to reach their final destination; the bank. And most impressive of all they do this while wearing suits and Chris is even carrying a briefcase! In spite of this there is nothing too spectacular here, but it’s a superb and entertaining all around film nonetheless.
