Have you ever seen a thrilling hunting scene in an action film? Maybe a policeman chases a suspect across the town streets. They weave in and out of the roads and streets, springing easily through barriers. Are these pursuits genuine? Or is film magic they're? While film chasing scenes may be screened closely, would you think there are individuals in true life who can do this? This is true! It is true!
Parkour is a non-competitive sport involving effective obstacle motion. Participants — called traceurs — move around, across or over the obstacles in the environment, such as city roads. From a training technique, Parkour evolved into a sport that graciously overcomes barriers within its journey by adjusting its motions to the setting. Parkour is as much art as it is sport, creativity, and vision as exercise and strength are important.
