BLP sources Primary sources Template:Tone Template:Autobiography Nicolas Bosc Born in France Avignon, is a top professional Parkour and Freerunning athlete, One France best. Since 2004 Bosc is leaving in the United States, works in the biggest live shows and movie productions as an acrobat, actor and Stuntman
Bosc lives with his family in a modest house in as small town Sorgues, in the south of France. He is the youngest of two children. Bosc loves acting, and will be playing in many school plays, as well as with the local theatre. One day with his best friend Johan Guy, Nicolas will watch a Jackie Chan movie project A and from that point on his goal will be to become a Stuntman in Hollywood. Bosc will began training in Gymnastics, Martial arts and more...
Nicolas realize that gymnastics is not really the right way to, one day, become a stuntman. So following Jackie Chan's foot steps, he and he's 3 friends they decided to that gymnastics into the streets! It started by coping Jackie Chan pushing off a wall to jump over a gate, jump from a roof to another roof down to the floor using balconies as well as copying some acrobatics he was doing! Remember in 1995 there was no internet like today, no YouTube or Facebook… all they had was Jackie Chan movies on VHS and their own imagination!
They will keep climbing buildings, jumping from their parents house roofs, then one day they saw a new Boys Band in 1997 the 2Be3. They where 3 friends from youth, singing but also doing flips like they never seen before! Our 4 friends really related to the ‘2Be3 and when they realized that they use to do gymnastics and martial arts, they also decided to join the local Gymnastic club ‘’ the A.N.T. club’’ There, they were able to learn new moves and repeat them over and over! Moves like wall flip, front and back flips, side flips, handstands and more… Then one day in 1998, watching Stade 2 for the sports news, they saw the documentary about those young people in Paris, the Yamakasi with David Belle and his team! And they realized that other kids were doing exactly what they have been doing, then they did some research, and found the Speed-Air-Man video
And once again, they said to themselves, that’s cool other people are doing what we do! We should go to Paris one day and meet up, to share and train together. In 2001, the Movie Yamakasi came out to the theatres. They where not to impressed by the performance, and they decided to, one day, go to Paris and try to show their talent, After all, “we are doing the same “new sport”, with a different style, so if they can get some work, why not us?’’ The local news started to get interested on our 4 boys, they will be featured in many local news paper, even getting a few covers, Then some national magazines got interested in them. Then their first TV appearance will be a 6 minutes documentary on France 3 TV Chanel”
Meanwhile their idea to try it in the Capital Paris, keep growing stronger, and in early 2003, they finally go to Paris, go to many production offices to drop their portfolio, and they came up with a team name Fils du Vide which later will become Ronins Soon after coming back from Paris, they receive a call from canal+ TV Channel, which was interested in doing a 6 episodes series with them, but also Cirque du Soleil was interested in them for the creation of their upcoming show KA! After a lot of talks, they decided to go to Montreal and join Cirque du Soleil
