Michal Marček ‘s Story:
I was born in Komárno. For 10 years I lived in Slovak Republic, then I moved together with my family to Linz (Austria). After 3 years we moved on to Regensburg (Germany). At the moment I ‘m living in Slovakia again.
When I was a little child, I was unknowingly doing the Méthode Naturelle (basics of parkour). I really didn’t recognize what it was all about. I just climbed, jumped, moved and enjoyed the time with my friends.
At the end of the year 2004 when I was living in Germany I seriously started to train parkour. September 2005 me and my cousin founded the Street Style Flyers Crew (Parkour, Freerunning Team). 2007 was a great year. I won the 1st place at the competition Red Bull – In The Air. I took part on Slovakia got Talent TV show and ended in semi-finals.
Later in 2008 I met new friends which were also practicing parkour and freerunning. We connected together and created a new team Freerun Slovakia. I also practicipated on the Red Bull – Art of Motion 2010 in Vienna. 2011 I took part on TV show Czecho-Slovakia got talent again. I was acting in commercials, shot on different shootings where I got some great experiences and met great people from all over the world.
2013 together with my team we made a great project Documentary about Slovak Nature. That was our first bigger project and I was really enjoying it. The next bigger project was Castle Run. Which also took place in Slovakia but now it was on Slovak Castles. There are 8 episodes of this Adventure. Now I am looking for new Adventures.
