Barkour, Ninja training for your dog

You may be familiar with Parkour, the ninja-like training that gained some notoriety ten years ago as you bound off walls, jump off buildings, and leap between roofs.  It’s like flying, assuming you survive.

Well, don’t forget your best friend.  Meet TreT, an American Staffordshire Terrier from Ukraine.  This crazy canine does the same in this amazing video.

If you can get your own pooch to stop eating cat poop and pay attention for a minute, you can even get him to do the same with tips from TreT’s trainer’s web site.  Or at least the pair of you can watch the video together while you eat ice cream and dream.

Movie info:

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future, where the sport of boxing has gone hi-tech. Charlie Kenton is a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback. (Touchstone Pictures)

Recommended martial arts and boxing movies and TV series

I recommend Metacritic, for checking out what’s new and notable in movies, TV, games, and music.  The site combines critic reviews in a single score from 1 to 100 so you get their joint consensus.

  • The Fighter – 79, movie
  • Lights out – 79, TV FX
  • Ip Man 2 – 72, independent movie
  • Warrior’s Way  – 45 (average), independent movie
