https://sites.google.com/site/elementalmovement/what-is-the-art-of-movement What is Free-Running? In parkour the object is to get from one point
to another by a means that is swift and skilled.
however doing complicated "tricks" that, while entertaining are unnecessary is not considered parkour. take this example: you are in a room where on one wall has a unlocked door and an open window on one wall. if you were to run up a wall and grab that window and go through, when you could have gone through the door, you wouldnt be doing parkour. parkour is intended on getting from point A to Point B via fastest means. Short Description Free-Running is similar to parkour except it includes style more so than parkour. As a Free-Runner you would take the last example and would jump though that window, probably doing a flip while at it. This is because as a Free-Runner you take satisfaction in being able to successfully do a challenge like that. Short Description History Parkour is called the "Big Boy" version of follow the leader, Which tests physical ability of a man/woman to its max

The word "Parkour" comes from the French word Parcours meaning course. A Traceur is someone who partakes in Pakour.

A man names George Herbert (French Man) introduced this concept to a man named David Bell who taught it to his father than incorporated it into his martial arts. History Cont.

and there are 3 deaths per year. Important Safety Tips 1. always run with a friend. you dont know if your going to get hurt and need medical attention. plus everything is more fun with a friend.

3. Have fun but be safe. don't go jumping on private property, its still trespassing. Would I.... i would love to participate in this sport because its so different and not many people can do it. and it is a sport.

I think the best part about this sport is seeing the videos and the different photos and competitions because you see people succeed in a difficult trick.
