What is Parkour ??

Parkour is a training discipline of movement and holistic well-being. The simplest way to visualize parkour is as clearing the obstacles in the most efficient and quickest way possible. Free-running is  closely related activity to Parkour.

Parkours Practitioners aim is to move quickly and efficiently through their environment using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves, negotiating obstacles in between. They try to maintain as much momentum as possible without being unsafe. Parkour can include running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, spinning, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement and more, if they are the most suitable movements for the situation



Parkour is non-competitive. It may be performed on an obstacle course, but is usually practised in a creative (and sometimes playful) reinterpretation or subversion of urban spaces. Parkour involves 'seeing' one's environment in a new way, and imagining the potentialities for movement around it.


In detail:

What is Parkour? 

Parkour is an art where practitioners aim to move in a most efficient and quickest way possible to overcome any given obstacle in their environment, using only their physical and mental fitness.  

It is a method/lifestyle of training the human body to become stronger, more agile and more effiecient .These enchancements are achieved by dedicating yourself to a life of unyielding challenge, unending progression and constant adaptation .

It is to move from point A to point B across any terrain in the fastest way possible. The practitioners use the most efficient, quickest and practical movements possible to cross obstacles. These movements include running, vaulting, rolling, climbing and jumping with perfect accuracy and control.

Practitioners of Parkour are called Top of Form

•  MALE practitioner - Tracuer

•  FEMALE practitioner- Traceuse

•  Traceurs take parkour as more of an art than a sport and not for competition

•  It challenges your body both  mentally and physically, to think quickly, spontaneously and outside the box in which this makes it easier to deal with mental or physical obstacles in life.

•  Use of your body and environment obstacles only

•  No equipment used

 

Parkour requires...

 consistent, disciplined training with an emphasis on functional strength, physical conditioning, balance, creativity, fluidity, control, precision, spatial awareness, and looking beyond the traditional use of objects.

Parkour movements typically include...

 running, jumping, vaulting, climbing, balancing, and quadrupedal movement. Movements from other physical disciplines are often incorporated, but acrobatics or tricking alone do not constitute parkour.

Parkour training focuses on...

 safety, longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous stunts.

Parkour practitioners value...

 community, humility, positive collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and the importance of play in human life, while demonstrating respect for all people, places, and spaces.

    Hi Guys,
    Excited to see a huge group tomm.
    1) Please be on time.
    2) Wear some comfortable dress where you can do some stretches without issues.
    3) Get 1-2 ltrs water as it is summer and you cannot buy inside.
    4) Please get a change of Rs50/- and save my life tomm
    5) Entry fee inside park is Rs5-Rs10/- . So get change, because if the fee is Rs5/- and you pay the guard Rs10/- he will ask you to come again and take change but most of times you will not receive that money back.
    6) Please come with lots of energy and smiles [Atleast for me :-) ]
