Tibial tuberosity avulsion injury in isolation is a rare form of knee trauma. The associated damage to the knee extensor mechanism calls for adequate management for good functional regain. Most of the reported cases in literature consist of children and adolescent patients and the injury in adults is an uncommon pattern. Very few of the tuberosity fractures have concomitant patellar tendon avulsion. We present a case of this rare injury in a parkour learner who sustained this injury while practicing one of his stunts. The operative management and compliant physiotherapy ensured a satisfactory outcome.
