Chance to represent pk/freeruning
I hope G4 doesn't misrepresent parkour and freeruning. Doing a parkour show like this has alot of potential to send it in the right direction or the wrong one.
One thing that concerned me about this preview for example, is when the narrator described it as "wreckless abandon." Parkour is not about being wreckless. It is an art and a discipline.
I've been practicing it for over two years now, and I don't feel like I'm being wreckless. When you actualy practice parkour, the way it's meant to be, you're not just a wreckless dare devil, throwing your safety away. You're taking control of your life and your surroundings.
You don't just wake up one morning and say to yourself, "I wonder what would happen if I throw myself at this or that," and just go for it and hope that it works. The way to better yourself in parkour, is by training, progression, and discipline.
And sure, you may say it's dangerous, but few things in life are truely safe and free of the chance of danger. As Helen Keller said, "Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than out right exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."
Parkour and freerunning are about freeing yourself from the limitations in your environment, by using what would otherwise be considered obstacles to your advantage. It's taking control of your mind and body to make the best of any given situation.
It's positive. It builds community. It teaches respect for self, others, and environment. It encourages individual expression and creativity. It teaches you that the only one you have to prove anything to is yourself.
I respect people that are capable of doing things that blow my mind, but parkour has taught me that their way is no better than mine and mine no better than theirs, because everyone has their own way of moving, their own way of seeing things, and their own way of expressing themselves.
I think that these are the things that need to be spread in the media, what parkour and freerunning are realy about. Not some commercialized version of it made to make a buck. Show people what a difference it can make in their own lives rather than trying to wow them with it. Like I said parkour and freerunning aren't about being better than someone else, but finding your ownself.
If you want to have a friendly competition with it that's fine, but I'll be losing my respect for any of these four teams if this show gets ugly by distorting parkour and freerunning to try and sell them.
All that said I hope Jump City doesn't turn out to be a shameful dissapointment to the arts an disciplines of parkour and freerunning. I'd rather see it represent parkour and freerunning in a positive light.
I thougth that this little preveiw was amazing! I can't wait to watch the 1st episode.
