Parkour Information

Definiton of Parkour: The shortest definition of Parkour is to get from point A to point B as quickly and efficiently as you can, while using you body in your environment. Freerunning is different from Parkour. Where parkour is all about practical movements that you can use in your day to day life or other situations, Freerunning is much more impractical. Freerunning is when you add flips, spins, and other movements that look cool but aren't completely necassary. Lots of people train both Parkour and Freerunning, which is why they are always grouped together. People who practice Parkour are known as Traceurs (pronounced tracer). Parkour and Freerunning can be practiced both competitively and noncompetitively. Some people practice and train for competitions to see how they compare to other Traceurs, while others train purely to better themselves and stay active. You can practice Parkour no matter how competitive you are. You also don't have to go one way or the other; you can try competitions to see if you like them. You can also compete while still having the main goal of bettering yourself.
