What is Parkour?
Parkour is a sport for the rapid movement from point A to point B. There are no aids allowed and the athlete tries the shortest possible way to go. Obstacles must be overcome as quickly as possible. In sports, an athlete is called Traceur.
The foundation for the sport Parkour provided Georges Herbert at the beginning of the 20th century. He developed a method of mental and physical education that is in harmony with nature.
In the 80s developed David Belle and some friends team up on Parkour sport techniques as they are known today, based on the techniques of Georges Herbert.
Sebastien Foucan was a co-developer of the sport and has significantly developed the parkour philosophy. He also starred in the James Bond movie Casino Royal, performing some parkour techniques alongside Daniel Craig.
Parkour is not only seen as a sport, but rather as a creative art to overcome its own limits set by the body and the environment.
The important thing is that you should not do the sport to impress others with his skills. Also, dangerous situations or stunts like flips or somersaults are not part of parkour. In addition, the competitive aspect of Parkour also does not occur.
The sport is also about respect for people and the environment.
