WFPF - Daniel Ilabaca

Perhaps you have seen videos of guys jumping around buildings with the craziest moves you would never think possible; leaping from building to building, window seel to pole, etc.   It’s called freerunning and parkour, and was first made popular throughout France.  Now internationally people have teamed up to enjoy and share this new sport with the world.  The WFPF (World Freerunning & Parkour Federtion), ” is NOT a team.   It’s an organization of individual Freerunners from around the world, some on teams, some not, who’ve come together to help bring the sport and philosophy of Parkour to mainstream audiences everywhere.” (From the official site itself).  Most of these individuals have a history of martial arts training, gymnastics, and breakdancing backgrounds.  Just check out some of what they can do here:
