Parkour course

What is parkour

Parkour is a physical discipline and training method that originated in France in the late 20th century. It involves moving efficiently and creatively through any environment, using movements such as running, jumping, climbing, vaulting, and rolling. The goal of parkour is to overcome physical and mental obstacles in order to reach a destination as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Parkour practitioners, also known as traceurs, focus on developing physical strength, agility, coordination, balance, and control. They train to overcome obstacles by using their bodies in creative and efficient ways and to adapt to new challenges as they arise. Parkour is not just about completing a set course, but about exploring and experiencing the environment in a new way.

Parkour has become increasingly popular in recent years and is often performed in urban environments, such as city parks and buildings, but can be practised anywhere. The discipline has also inspired other forms of movement-based training, such as freerunning and obstacle course racing.
