The word "Parkour" comes from the French "parcours" which literally means the "the way through" or "The Path".
Once a training program for French Special Forces, Parkour is in its strictest definition is the act of moving from point "a" to point "b" using obstacles in your path to increase your efficiency.
Sounds like fun right?
Since then, Parkour/Freerunning has evolved into super cool creative moves that are immediately recognizable - even if you don't know what its called - as people began including flips and other creative expressions though signature moves including the "kong vault", "tic-tac" and "gap jumps".
Parkour is a growing movement culture with a vast and developing community. With many ways to experience movement, Parkour has something to offer everyone.
