Have you tried Parkour?


















So you tried basketball and didn't do so well. Then you tried football and didn't like it. Well, maybe you need to try your hand at a different kind of sport. Why not give Parkour a try? What, you have never heard of it? I would guess that most of the people reading have not either. So, let's do what we do best here - give you as much information as possible.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Parkour (pron. IPA /paʁ.'kuʁ/, often abreviated to PK) is a physical discipline of French origin in which participants attempt to pass obstacles in the fastest and most direct manner possible, using skills such as jumping and climbing, or the more specific parkour moves. The obstacles can be anything in one's environment, so parkour is often seen practiced in urban areas because of many suitable public structures that are accessible to most people, such as buildings, rails and walls.

From Parkour.net

Parkour - an art to help you pass any obstacle; to go from point A to point B using only the possibilities of the human body. This art originated with French soldiers in Vietnam and was developed by David Belle, inspired by his father.
