Free running isn't the same as parkour buddy. They're completly different. Just based on the fact that you did a backflip, you were free running. Not doing parkour. Look up both philosophies.
I analyzed them as both so people would understand better. I know the difference. Parkour is a tool for getting places normally unreachable, and free running is getting from point A to point B, while at the same time following the concept of "always moving forward and never looking back." So I can understand where you would think that a backflip is an element of "free running" instead of "Parkour," but you have to remember, you can jump DOWN a building once you get to the top, so technically using a backflip in that particular situation does count, since I'm using it as a means of getting somewhere.
