And at 19 body popping. In 2006, a knee injury got in the way of his Taekwondo career. In 2007, Franck moved to London and began doing Parkour in London with Urban Freeflow, where he quickly became one of Ez's very few favourites. He competed in the 2008 Barclaycard World Freerun Championships, in which his performance consisted of a large amount of dancing. He was a judge for the 2009 championships. A couple of months later he left Urban Freeflow and joined some of his friends in a team called Storm Freerun.Storm Freerun official website His various set of skills (martial arts ; parkour / Free Running ; acrobatics ) open him the doors to the stunt double world. He's currently training for the stunt register.
