 "I hope to open a parkour school in the future to teach more people how to play it," Cui Jian said, adding, "It is more than sports. It is a spirit that makes you never say die, and never cower."

Cui was born in a village in Huludao City, Liaoning Province in 1990. He began to love parkour in 2005, once he was attracted by the actions in Banlieue 13 Ulitimatum.

"I extremely admire actors in Banlieue 13 who can climb a wall with their hands only and jump down from high," he said.

The young man quit his job as a waiter, and came to Beijing, after reading a gathering call on the Internet to group a parkour amateurs' team in 2009.

Now he has been one of them and a parkour coach in Beijing since 2010.

 “如果面前有一个高三米的台阶,你要怎么通过?”大部分人的回答一定是“绕道!”。但我们身边有一群年轻人,他们的选择不是绕路,而是徒手翻越。他们是谁?是这个城市中飞跃的人——跑酷者。

跑酷(法语:parkour),在很多人眼中是一项非常危险的运动。常被归为极具观赏性的极限运动,以日常生活环境为运动的场所。没有既定规则,只是将各种日常设施当做障碍物或辅助在其中跳跃穿行,它需要人极强的身体协调能力,力量、弹跳及勇气缺一不可。

崔健,一个农村男孩,1990年出生在辽宁省西南部葫芦岛市。和“中国摇滚之父”意外的重名,让他身上也沾染了摇滚的那种简单、有力、直白的气质。2005年,崔健偶然看到了电影《13号街区》,被里面飞檐走壁的动作吸引,“我特别羡慕里面的人能徒手翻越墙壁、跳楼梯。”这是崔健对跑酷最初的印象。

2009年,崔健在网上看到,在北京有跑酷爱好者自发组织在一起练习,他当即辞去餐厅服务员的工作,只身一人来到北京。按照网上的电话,崔健找到了现在俱乐部的队长,说出了自己的理想,便开始跟着他们一起练习跑酷。2010年因为成绩突出便开始当教练,2011年参加红牛全国跑酷大赛并取得全国第五的优异成绩。

今年4月,一对50多岁的夫妻,把自己正在上小学的孩子送来学习跑酷。“他们觉得孩子的课余时间都花在了电脑和手机上,缺少必须的身体锻炼,社交能力也很差,而跑酷能够磨练他们的意志、增强他们的自信心。练习时,孩子满头大汗,一身的土,身上也时不时有些擦伤,家长就鼓励孩子爬起来再练!”这让崔健非常感动。

“我期望以后能开一所跑酷学校,让更多的人学习它,将跑酷变成一项全民运动。不光是锻炼身体,跑酷更多的是传达一种精神:永不言败,永不退缩。”崔健坚定地说。
