We are a meetup group for Tampa Bay's Parkour! We meet every Friday at Xcel 360 from 8 - 10pm and Saturday from 6 - 8pm. We do out door work as well in different areas around the bay area. Xcel 360 is the official training gym of Daniel Arroyo. You may have seen him on Mtv's Parkour Challenge... you can check out numerous videos of him on Youtube.com. We just lowered our prices from $15/night to only $10/night!
WHAT IS PARKOUR?
Parkour (sometimes also abbreviated to PK) or l'art du déplacement  (English: the art of moving) is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one's path by adapting one's movements to the environment. It is a non-competitive, physical discipline of French origin in which participants run along a route, attempting to negotiate obstacles in the most efficient way possible.. Skills such as jumping and climbing, or the more specific parkour moves are employed. The object of parkour is to get from one place to another using only the human body and the objects in the environment. The obstacles can be anything in one's environment, but parkour is often seen practiced in urban areas because of the many suitable public structures available such as buildings and rails.
The term freerunning is sometimes used interchangeably with parkour. While superficially similar, freerunning places more emphasis on the aesthetics of movement and finding creative ways to overcome obstacles than on efficiency and simplicity. However, there is some controversy over the exact definitions of the two terms.
A practitioner of parkour is called a traceur if male, or traceuse if female.
