    Default 30 Second Guide to: Free Running


    Perhaps one of the most graceful, physically demanding and artistically urban sports around, free running is not a very old phenomenon. It came about as a result of vast urbanization and it essentially involves young (we cannot imagine aged people pulling this one off!) athletes.

    These free runners perform what can be best described as urban acrobatics using the city or rural landscapes/structures--this includes, buildings, rocks and gorges--to perform their their routines. This sport is similar to parkour and could even be described as a derivative of it.

    The creator of free running, Sebastien Foucan, defines it as a means to truly "follow your own way." We admit that this definition does have a nice ring to it.

    Currently, free running is one of the most popular sports on Youtube, and there are around 20 million related videos uploaded each year! While there are competitive events all over the world, some of the coolest events take place in Japan, especially in tall structures like the Yokohoma Tower.

    Needless to say, Japan has one of the greatest fan followings of the sport. The historic harbour right in front of the Yokohoma Tower is often used as a course obstacle by fearless free runners.

    We're pretty sure this sport will grow tremendously not only due to its increasing mass appeal, but also because it's one of the coolest-looking sports in the world!
