Tulsa, OK - Urban ninjas are everywhere: on bridges, in the parks, and even where you eat.
“Most people are just like these parks are sceneic," said John Scott, urban ninja. "We see and we’re like 'it’s a playground!'”
By now, you’ve likely heard of parkour. It's a mixture of discipline involving jumps, and climbs, but have you really ever met someone who does it? That’s because there’s only about 30 practicing urban ninjas in the entire state.
“They did a bunch of flips and stuff," said a 6-year-old onlooker. "I was like whoa!”
“I was peddling on my bike and I thought someone was jumping in the river," 65-year-old Ray Reins said. "I’ve never seen anyone do anything like this before, so I had to stop and check this out.”
“Bystanders usually sit off and kind of watch us," said Urban Ninja Casey Blackmon. "They're like, 'do a backflip!'”
Just about anyone can do Parkour. Blackmon has even trained a 65-year-old, but he'll be the first to admit, you have to know your limitations.
