This is what the Off the Edge tour is all about — community, friendship and passion for parkour and freerunning.

2013 Red Bull Art of Motion Champion, Cory DeMeyers and #1 ranked Youtube video blogger, Jesse La Flair, will make their 14th stop on Tuesday May 5th in Seattle, Washington as part of their 15-city North American “Off The Edge” Tour. Conceived to promote their passion for parkour and freerunning, and showcase their Kickstarter funded documentary “From Here to There”, the duo will be joined by some of the top parkour athletes in the world including multiple Red Bull Art of Motion Champion Jason Paul from Germany, and Team Farang founder Anan Anwar from Thailand.

“We’re excited to be back in Seattle and play at Parkour Visions!” explains La Flair. “When we started our documentary this was our first stop — so it seems fitting that we would return here on our last road stop. Tyson [Cecka] is one of the leading figures in our sport in the US and one of the best at hosting events and educating the parkour and freerunning community on builds, safety and togetherness. This is what the Off the Edge tour is all about — community, friendship and passion for parkour and freerunning.”

Jesse and Cory are both members of pioneering American parkour and freerunning team, Tempest, based in Los Angeles, California. Tempest was one of the first groups to open gyms in the United States, recognizing early on the potential for growth of the discipline. La Flair and DeMeyers are just the latest Youtube sensations from the team which spawned a successful business and careers for its members in the Hollywood film industry.

“Our tour’s goal is not only to spread awareness about parkour and freerunning to a new generation, but to also make businesses aware that we are more than a viable vehicle for their message,” explain DeMeyers. “It is crazy to think that parkour and freerunning are some of the most viewed videos on social media, and have been for years, much more than any other sports. Even events and athletes that bring significant crowds struggle to find sponsors. We want to change this attitude.”

The “Off the Edge” Tour bus will arrive in Seattle on Tuesday May 5th, 2015. The day will begin with a jam at Seattle parkour and freerunning hub, Parkour Visions from 11AM-3PM (1210 W Nickerson St, Seattle, WA 98119) A waiver must be signed in order to participate. After Parkour Visions the jam will continue at Gas Work Parks, Seattle, WA 98103 from 3PM-5PM. The screening of the documentary “From Here to There”, which follows La Flair and DeMeyer’s European adventures leading to their podium victory at the 2013 Red Bull Art of Motion in Santorini Greece will take place at 8PM at the AMC Loews Oak Tree 6 movie theater (10006 Aurora Ave N, Seattle, WA, US, 98133).
