Meet Damien Walters - Part Gymnast, Part Free Runner (parkour)... ALL Amazing!

This dude IS AWESOME! -----
Damien Gareth Walters (born April 6, 1982), from Derby, United Kingdom is a professional stuntman, gymnastics coach and free runner.

He has competed for Great Britain in tumbling, and at his peak, was ranked 4th in the world, winning the European and world championships with the team.. He said his first move was a frontflip on his grass when he was 4 or 5, which he subsequently failed, and so his mother took him to train in gymnastics. He has had over 20 years training experience, and currently trains for about 3-4 hours each day.

Damien's tumbling and gymnastics skills mean that many free running moves come naturally to him, and he was first noticed in the community after releasing his 2007 showreel, which featured many free running inspired moves. This video got him scouted by Jackie Chan's stunt agent, and he has now given up on gymnastics to pursue a career being a stuntman, where he is a part of a core group of stuntmen who work for Brad Allan, the first non-asian member of Jackie Chan's stunt team.
