Ryan Doyle in Baku, Azerbaijan

Ryan Doyle (born 22 September, 1984) is a British freerunner, Traceur, martial artist, actor, and coach. He, along with Daniel Ilabaca, founded the World Freerunning and Parkour Federation (WFPF). He is also sponsored by Red Bull.


Ryan Doyle trained in the Korean martial art of Kuk Sool Won. His professional freerunning career was started when, despite his poor eyesight, he won the Red Bull Art of Motion competition in 2007. However, in the same competition he broke his shinbone after missing the mat while attempting a triple cork off a 12-foot drop, requiring a 33 cm bar to be screwed into his shin. However, he made a full recovery and won the AoM again in 2011.

He has also performed and acted in several movies and TV series such as National Geographic's Fight Science, MTV's Ultimate Parkour Challange, and the 2011 film Freerunner.
