Angelos Poulis is a Traceur/Freerunner, performer, director, model, who lately transitioned into acting. He is considered to be one of the Greek Parkour Pioneers. Angelos is the founder of the first official Greek Parkour team N.S.A (No strings attached) which was formed in 2007.He discovered Parkour in 2006 while watching the French movie "banlieue 13",starring David Belle, the founder of Parkour. Angelos became known in Greece by his videos on YouTube which spread on the internet and also through his work on TV commercials as a stuntman and with many leading actor/character for companies such as Peugeot, Vodafone, Cosmote, Nescafe to name a few. He has also had leading roles in movies, music videoclips and performances for several live TV shows, events, happenings. Furthermore he has been hosting the biggest freerunning event in the world "red bull art of motion/santorini"3 years in a row (as the Greek host) alongside of famous American event hosts, such as Andy Bell and Travis Wong, from L.A.
As a kid Angelos was very active and involved with sports like basketball, football, running, tennis, swimming and more. In 1996 at the age of 13 he discovered and became focused on skateboarding witch he was practising every day with his friends. Spending all his summers in Corfu, he practiced water sports and hiking, through which he explored nature on the green island. Feeling part of nature and his surroundings is an important part of his life, and also happens to be the basic essence of Parkour.
Angelos has also been involved with technology and computers from an early age. As a Trance music producer, at the age of 18, he was releasing tracks in digital underground record label by Sony music. He has performed various live performances at some of the biggest night clubs in Athens, and at events organised by Trancemedia & Reload.
At age 22 Angelos moved into a new chapter of his life when he discovered the world of Parkour. The art of movement that combine strength, speed, jumping techniques and the ability to use and move around in different surroundings in new creative ways. With many parallels to his past physical activities, he found an art form that changed his entire life style and fed his hunger for new challenges and personal development.
He quickly adapted the philosophy of the sport, which teaches us to move using the natural methods that we should have learned from infancy.
At the time when Angelos began his Parkour training it was something new and unknown in Greece. Angelos and his friend Tasos Gkikoudis were the first two traceurs (Parkour athletes) in the country, and together they created the NSA Parkour team with the goal of making Parkour known in Greece and motivate more people to start practising the sport.
One of his ways of promoting Parkour and spreading the philosophy of the sport around to the public was by creating his own Parkour videos and sharing them on internet websites like YouTube. First videos were simple training videos made with an old camera he borrowed from his father. In the process of recording and editing his first Parkour training videos he was amazed by the art of video production. Something that at that exact moment started a new found attraction and passion in the same way music production had done in the past. He started studying books and tutorials about video art, editing, producing and directing, and it didn’t’ take long before his creativity and passion for this new found art paid off. At a video contest organised by MAD TV, Greece and judged by a panel of famous actors and directors, he took 1st place in 2008 and 3rd place in 2009. Shortly after he started investing in better equipment in order to improve the quality of his videos and take his work to a higher level. With requests and offers coming in and deals made on music videos, event trailers and more as video producer/editor, his future goals were set. One of these goals is to produce, feature and act in his own first Greek action short movie, that will include stunt, Parkour, and martial arts at the highest level possible.
As the popularity of the sport Parkour grew rapidly all over the country, Angelos and his NSA team were to be seen, found and featured in lots of TV-shows, magazines through interviews, shows and events. By 2007 him and his team started doing work on TV commercials and signed up with ACE Models management that year. Angelos soon here after started having parts and leading roles in several commercials for Greece and abroad where Parkour was featured. As seen in the successful commercial for the car company Peugeot from 2011 shot in Athens ( youtube.com/watch?v=E_Q7q3vCiQs ).
In between his work and training, Angelos also found the time to travel. One of the destinations he would visit often is London. Here he was meeting other athletes and taking part in seminars/training of Parkour Generations, a famous Parkour team from UK, formed by some of the first traceurs of the world, from the former Yamakasi Team. A team that David Belle was doing his training with in his younger years.
Right before his 3rd year as the Greek host for the "red bull art of motion" that took place on the island of Santorin in the summer of 2013, he signed a contract with a new upcoming clothing company called SNEAK ACES (sneakaces.com) as his official sponsor.
Apart from the jobs where Angelos skills of Parkour was required, he also received several opportunities and work propositions for commercials, movies and music videos without relation to the sport. He can be seen for instance in the music video “Pio Psila” by the Greek group Vegas ( youtube.com/watch?v=z7e3_OzysYE ) Trying out acting in this video where he plays the leading role of the story, was one of the many experiences that lead to inspiration and motivation to step into yet another exciting challenge in his career and goals as he in the summer of 2013 decided to step into the scene of acting. At the moment he is currently attending the "Beverly Hills Playhouse, Los Angeles-Athens" by IWA. Acting classes/seminars for actors with goals of making an international acting career. The seminars are being taught using the methods of Milton Katselas, a famous acting teacher with Greek origin, who is a great mentor for several famous Hollywood actors. Angelos goals for the near future is to make the big move to L.A to pursue his dream of working in the film industry as an actor, mainly in action movies.
Hard work is not an obstacle for Angelos. With a background in sports and the thirst and desire for constantly reaching higher he knows that in order to become successful in everything he sets out to do requires planning, self-discipline, consistency, hard training and a positive healthy spirit and body. He works out 4 days pr. week at the gym doing weight lifting and cardio training to maintain and increase strength and endurance. To improve his body control he train gymnastics and 2-3 times per week he practise Parkour.
Not only does he take care of his own training, he also passes on his knowledge. Every week he is teaching Parkour classes at a gym for children of the ages of 7-15 year old.
When he is not to be found at the gym, at Parkour training or in acting classes Angelos keeps busy always seeking knowledge. He is reading books and watching documentaries about life and Quantum Physics. He believes that all the answers about life lies hidden in the Quantum Physics.
He travels as much as he can and visits friends around Europe. He loves to share the philosophy of Parkour along with his secrets of success he has learned from books, great personalities or athletes, personal experiences and movies. One of the thing he loves the most, is to motivate people in moving forward, to believe in themselves, and to set their goals high, even if those goals may seem crazy or impossible. Some of the "rules" he follows, lives by and passes on are:
Trust yourself. Do not be afraid to fail- be afraid not to try. Don’t believe the naysayers, work like hell, break the rules and think outside of the box. Always give something back, and be able to, at any moment, to sacrifice what you are for what you will become.
He is inspired by the great athlete Michael Jordan, and the famous actor and bodybuilding athlete, Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose biography book motivated Angelo’s to move forward and pursue his goals with acting.
