Show moves Answered

Picture of

Hi everyone, i was wondering if in parkour and freerunning "shows"(ie. Showing off to a small crowd) if you have any trademark tricks? Just name/describe/post a video of you doing your trick, and maybe suggest improvements as well. My showmove is a front-somersault with a 180 twist, then going backwards in a handstand for 5 seconds. It's less impressive than it sounds, but it gets a good roar from the crowd ;)

I thought that parkour didn't envolve tricks?

In my understanding, parkour is about finding and travelling the quickest route between two points. Tricking may be a part of that if it gets you there quicker. I thought freerunning shared this philosophy, but apparently not. I do a fair human flag, something I've wanted to be capable of for ages.

parkour is efficient, freerunning is aesthetic.
