    I... I don't know.

    Maybe I just can't get over... what happened that day back in November.

    Y'know, where I got gangraped at a circus by midget strongmen. I mean, it wasn't the most eventful thing in my day, but it made the list.

    That video makes some very valid points about how much cooler martial arts uniforms look if you shorten the sleeves and have different colors for the pants and jacket.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    If you wanna train in something to look cool just learn to play the guitar or something, at least you'll get more tail that way.

    aight.. tricking and parkour has like 8 ground moves which is very hard to master.
    that's why very few does it because it is hard to start with.

    this is what you do.
    1) google parkour/tricking+your location
    2) if there is a meat up or something go there and your hooked up.
    3) if not try to find these basic techniques and train them but stay safe.
    4) stay safe ;P

    If 80s hair metal bands taught us anything, its that being cool is a mixture of knowing how to play the guitar AND being able to do some high kicks.

    To be boring and, you know, actually answer the question. These guys are obviously skilled and probably could (with specific training) adapt such skill levels to 'real' fighting however the video appears not to be intended to demonstrate anything other than athleticism and gracefulness.

    If it takes your fancy then Taekwondo would be your bet or if the gymnastics appeal Parkour may be more to your liking.

    No more than any male gymnast. There is no fighting application in this video AT ALL.

    That was suppose to be related to fighting? I mean I knew it wasn't really a video game trailer ... but it never occurred to me that people would think it carried any sort of martial value.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Well, if they put in as much time training to actually fight as they do learning how to anger Isaac Newton, they probably would be pretty good.
