Parkour is a movement style which has its roots in France in the 1930's and was further developed in the 1990's in the inner city housing estates of urban France.
Parkour is all about moving from point to point in a smooth, efficient, flowing manner taking in all the obstacles and terrain that lie between the points. Techniques such as vaults, climbing, dropping with rolling to break the fall, animal-inspired ground movements and much more all figure highly in Parkour training.
When gymnastics and flamboyant martial arts such as Wu-Shu are combined with parkour to add flips, kicked and 'tricks', this is what we call 'free running'.
Parkour is now officially recognised as a sport.
