Bonus: 90s with Mathieu Ledoux by Jon Jenkins (Revolution)

Mathieu Ledoux is unreal. We have never seen a more naturally gifted individual. Mathieu’s body control allows him to skate in a way that rollerblading has never seen before.

We wanted to portray Mathieu’s skating the best way possible with a Revolution 90 Seconds Edit. His positivity is contagious, you can’t help but want to better yourself after being around him.

Mathieu is humble, he expects nothing from rollerblading. He only wishes to inspire others to go their own direction with their skating after watching his.

Parkour : Video Edit

David Belle
up : David Belle, Founder of Parkour

Architecture Acrobatics : not so far from rollerblading here is a Parkour video edit. I know that a lot of blader are practicing Parkour ; a special thought to Neou Men.

About :

The Parkour is a physical discipline of French origin (founded by David Belle) in which the participant – called a traceur – attempts to pass obstacles in the fastest and most direct manner possible, using skills such as jumping, vaulting and climbing, or the more specific parkour moves. The obstacles can be anything in the environment, so parkour is often practiced in urban areas because of many suitable public structures, such as buildings, rails, and walls.

Parkour is a physical discipline inspired by human movement. It focuses on uninterrupted, efficient forward motion over, under, around and through obstacles (both man-made and natural) in one’s environment. Such movement may come in the form of running, jumping, climbing and more complex techniques. The goal of parkour is to adapt one’s movement to any given obstacle.
