About

Originating in France, parkour is the art getting from one place to another in the most efficient manner possible. In theory, parkour is about learning to navigate obstacles quickly in an emergency situation. Parkour trainings allow people to negotiate obstacles on an individual basis and decide on the best method for getting passed them, based on the type of obstacle, the physical abilities of the traceur, and the situation. There is an emphasis on fluid, limber movements, and training sometimes includes instruction in the martial arts.
