    Yowza. Those guys definitely have a future, but I'm not sure whether it will as movie stuntmen or as organ donors. [​IMG]

    I dunno if they were the same guys, but there's a car ad (I think for the Scions) where some guys are doing some of that to keep up with the cars. I've also seen another ad with the jumpers, ... I think it was for shoes or jeans.

    I think this is the Scion ad. I can't view QT movies at work, so I can't check it until I go home.

    Defiantly impressive! These guys must have trained there asses off to be so agile flexible and strong. Reminds me of my martial arts training with how fluid there movement is and when they land they roll or otherwise let there kinetic energy keep them moving rather than impart that force into there legs causing an injury.

    From what I recall its pretty popular in France. They call themselves Yamakasi. Luc Besson even did a movie about it; I believe it was also called Yamakasi.

    Or they can always call Vince McMahon to see if they can get a job on Raw or Smackdown. That's how Mick Foley got started in the business [​IMG]

    these guys should train pro athletes how to fall/land without hurting themself.
    that looks to be the key to many of those stunts.
    landing without much of an impact on their body.

    how many times have i seen an athlete get hurt just from falling down and trying to brace their fall with their arm.
    instead of doing a roll or something better then their arm.
