Parkour (French pronunciation: ?[pa?ku?]) is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assist equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible.
Parkour is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movements to the environment.
Parkour requires… consistent, disciplined training with an emphasis on functional strength, physical conditioning, balance, creativity, fluidity, control, precision, spatial awareness, and looking beyond the traditional use of objects.
Parkour movements typically include… running, jumping, vaulting, climbing, balancing, and quadrupedal movement. Movements from other physical disciplines are often incorporated, but acrobatics or tricking alone do not constitute parkour.
Parkour training focuses on… safety, longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous stunts.
Parkour practitioners value… community, humility, positive collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and the importance of play in human life, while demonstrating respect for all people, places, and spaces.
Please do not attempt to do any of the Parkour stunts. Parkour stunts are done after rigorous training and building up unshakable confidence. There are no harnesses or props used. Like they say, get entertained at your own risk!!
