Ahh this art is my life, quite honestly. So in this thread we basically discuss:
And whatever else crops up
Okay some background for those unsure on what it is:
"Parkour is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one's path by adapting one's movements to the environment." - American Parkour
Although not traditionally thought of as the definition to parkour, I feel that this is the closest you will get to defining this lifestyle.
Now for some words, written by me on my parkour teams website
To the untrained eye parkour may look very easy however, this lifestyle/sport takes many years of dedication, discipline and practice. Parkour is a constantly progressing movement, nobody can ever become the best in every environment as not every environment is the same.
Like starting any new activity you wish to know the benefits of doing it, with parkour we expect the same. The personal benefits you can get from parkour is limitless, apart from fitness and health, the friendships you find and create can last many years. If you can't find a parkour buddy to practice with you, you can find many hundreds of communities on-line.
Now the man I am about to show you a picture of is the man who made parkour commercial (We've been running over rocks for years xD)
This man goes by the name of DAVID BELLE, he was in the first parkour team which also included Sebastien Foucan and Stephen Vigiroux.So yeah that should be enough for you to drool over. xD If you want to see some more Astir Parkour stuff let me know
