This is a mini-documentary of professional freewalker, Ronnie Walker. He is one of the founders of the sport and is still considered to be one of the best. Ronnie Walker is to freewalking what Tony Hawk is to skateboarding. He comes from a very modest upbringing in the tough streets of Boise Idaho. His brother Luke, who many say invented the sport, was tragically killed while attempting a two step gap at the age of 10. This was devastating to Ronnie. However, he overcame his grief and financial setbacks. Ronnie left the Boise ghetto at age 16 and traveled the world bringing a message of peace and love to the people of the streets through this amazing sport. Today he resides in Los Angeles. He is still progressing and taking the sport to new levels. He competes regularly. His specialty is stairs but he is amazing in all areas of the sport. He is best known for his signature moves, The 3 stair cross 2 step spin, the 3 step gap, and his latest, the "tree trolley". Ronnie Walker is a true modern day pioneer.
DISCLAIMER: Freewalking in no way resembles "free running" or "parkour" which is NOT even a sport. Free running is simply a bunch of idiots with no cars running around acting like fools. « less
