Video: Beijing Urban Monkeys

Due to internet censorship in China we often don’t see much of the Chinese Traceurs and Traceuses. This video, however, confirms that they are doing great!

Zhang Yi Jie from the Beijing Urban Monkeys team busts out some huge movements both in local spots and at the amazing PK parks they have created. It’s great to see Parkour growing in China and we should definetly look forward to more from these guys!

It is curious how they get access to training videos, considering Youtube is banned in China. And also, Parkour parks? I believe we are having a completely wrong oppinion on the PRC.

    I have some answers as to how we can train in China. We have multiple websites that take videos illegally from youtube and other sources. We are able to stream some of it but not all of it. I train with these guys in the summer and its a ton of fun. They definitely have their skills down.

    I’m all new to Parkour and I’d like to take on training for this.

    My goals are mainly to improve my balance as well as get a better understsanding of my surrounding. And getting in better shape also hehe.

    I don’t know anyone doing parkour in Beijing, but I’d be glad to join groups.

      Hi Mathilda,

      Having somebody to look up to is definitely a nice goal. The most important step you can take is to actually start training. You will obviously not be an excellent traceuse from the beginning, but you will start to develop your skills pretty fast.

      You will be able to see significant increase in strength and technique in about 6 months, by training 3 times a week, so the results are fairly quick.

      Keep training!
