What is Parkour?

Parkour is a non-competitive natural method to train the human body to be able to move forward quickly, making use of the environment that's around us at any given time. This 'art of displacement' requires neither specific structure nor accessory for its practice. The body is the only tool. It's an athletic discipline accessible to all, because it combines all the natural skills of the human body: running, jumping, climbing, etc. It's a utility sport that permits exploration of the potential offered by your body. It's about being able to face the obstacles with which you are presented, whether they be in the natural environment or in the urban environment, in a search for movement that combines effectiveness and control.

Project Freerun covers all bases of Parkour and Freerun Coaching. Over the past years we’ve take inspiration from traditional Parkour, Ninja Warrior, Olympic Lifting and even The Marines Training to develop a curriculum that will not only highlight every fundamental step of Parkour and Freerun, but craft the student to train safely and progressively. We have a saying in Parkour – Être fort pour être utile - To Be Strong Is to Be Useful. This perfectly encapsulates what Parkour is about, adapting the human body to whatever challenges it’s presented with.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
