This month, Parkulture looks at Parkour and Freerunning in the United States by featuring its most famous team and academy — Team Tempest. This Los Angeles based team is one of a few professional outfits in the USA and all of its members work in the entertainment sector as actors and/or stunts-persons. They are also recognized for having opened one of the largest parkour and freerunning training facilities in the world, the Tempest Academy.

In this Parkulture Team Spotlight, the editorial team goes one-on-one with all eleven members of Team Tempest and discovers what makes this group of friends, business associates and professional athletes unique.

"I reached out to Brian a while back to see if he would be interested in being a judge for the Cross Urban Scramble," says Roch Nakajima, co-founder of Parkulture. "I was immediately taken how nice and genuine he and his whole team are. I really wanted our editorial team to do a story on them and showcase this fact."

In this edition, readers get an up-close and personal look at all the members of Team Tempest. From picking on the only woman on the team, Luci Romberg to idolizing Brian Orosco's mustache, readers get an uncensored look at life in Team Tempest.
