Launched in France and the UK, I refer to parkour as "applied gymnastics" where you turn your environment into an obstacle course. A park bench becomes a vaulting obstacle, a fence rail becomes a balance beam, fallen logs are hurdled!
Basically it is exactly what WE did as kids, running, climbing and jumping over anything in the way on our way to the playground, where we did more of the same!
What we teach in parkour are SAFE landing techniques, proper vaulting, climbing, hurdling, landing, rolling, tumbling, swinging and more. It is EXACTLY like Ninja warrior meets Assassins Creed meets Mario Brothers! A perfect channel for boys and girls with energy and enthusiasm, ages 7-up
