Parkour

Parkour (SAGF)

Parkour is an athletic sport that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners (tracers) aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment (usually urban), negotiating obstacles without assistive equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. It includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, plyometrics, rolling, quadrupedal (crawling) movements and others as deemed most suitable for the situation.  The sport requires the athletes to see their environment in a new way, and imaging the potential for navigating it by movement around, across, through, over and under its features.
