I appreciate your honesty and I apologize if I've disappointed you.
To me this is no light matter - I stand by those definitions, I feel they are succinct, practical, true, and defensible. I don't feel a lot of definitions out there are.
If you'd like to show me another definition, I'd be happy to discuss, dissect, etc.
Definitions are important, they are a basis for discussion and understanding, and they serve as a sort of "pronoun" for words - ex - I sat down last night in front of a thing with 4 legs, or maybe 3, and a flat surface - that was round, or maybe square, I don't really remember - anyway, I sat down at this thing and I put a plate on it and ate my dinner.
Now, this doesn't mean each person has to agree or even abide by the definitions. But, I do feel definitions should be clear, simple, and true as possible.
This doesn't stop anyone from practicing whatever they want and calling it what they want, however there ARE definitions for things, and Parkour and Freerunning are no different form other things in that respect.
Again, I didn't spend 2 hours planning what I wrote as "definitions" - I wrote what came off the top of my head - but I feel they are reasonable, simple, defensible, and true.
I don't feel that makes me narrow minded, I feel it makes me a seeker of truth and simplification.
After all, no matter what the definitions, the benefit to the definition is that they accurately define the activities so that people can TRAIN, LEARN, and DISCUSS.
If you feel that can be done in one definition - great, use that one. If you feel it takes two, use those two - if you like a definition from site X - then use it. Again, put it through my filter, even if just to humor me - clear, simple, and true.
