i would say it takes about 2 years to be comfortable with knowing your limits, thats what keeps a traceur safe and alive. in mirrors edge it shows the optimal path in red, while seeming kinda silly, it is actually in-line with how you begin to think of the world around you as you progress in parkour. its commonly reffered to “PK vision” its the a second decision made in your mind by observing the options around, the key idea is moving fluidly.
someone posted saying there are so many styles and tricks,, this is not true.. the key element if parkour is not rule based, its free flowing, not flashy.. the optimal way to get from point a to point b, no matter whats inbetween. it was developed as a means of evasion.
freerunning, however is very similar to parkour, but add more stylistic elements, and flips. etc.
theres a really cool movie starring the founder of parkour, david belle. its a french movie, District B13.
