Free running/Parcour latest training method.

A really good idea I think, It's a good advancement to keep RM training way ahead of the Army in terms of you gotta have bollocks. Maybe the PT branch got bored with Vaulting and rope climbs alone. Intoduce this to CTCRM and keep the Corps at the cutting edge. Introduce this to the units and expect a few broken Bootnecks :thumright:

This is not as stupid as it first seems. The Parkour boys are fcuking fit.Who says the youth of today are all fat useless drug dealers? I was amazed after checking it out on You Tube. The sport has been used to great effect in movie stunts. With a bit of forward thinking, which it appears is happening in this case it could be adapted for military use.

It was invented because they needed a fancy way of running from the coppers. Dont know if its good for the RM because with an assault rifle and all the other gear. it might just turn out to be painful.

I'm not sure whether its use in combat is a practical consideration, however, as has been stated you have to be fit. By happy co-incidence the Royal Marines seek, amongst other attributes, fit young men.

I was reading an article on this not long ago about how the US navy SEAL's have taken elements of parcour for urban warfare, you don't do all of the fancy shit but some of it improves movement and speed even with gear on.
