For those of you who don’t know what parkour is, I’m sorry you’ll just have to find out on your own.
Parkour is not limited by a definition. I could tell you what parkour is but to truly understand it you’ll just have to experience it for yourselves.
Parkour is … a way of expressing your feelings, art, imagination, a way to overcome your fears, breaking free, daring to live, doing what people say is impossible, truly living, having fun, overcoming obstacles – both mental and physical ….. and much, much more !!
Sebatian Foucan says that when you view a wall, you try to find a way to overcome the obstacle. When you succeed,you will find that in life nothing can hold you back. In parkour when you are about to try a jump, you hesitate not knowing whether you will succeed or fail. But, when you succeed you instantly overcome your fears and suddenly there is not one force in this universe that can stop you from achieving your dreams.
This to me is the philosophy of parkour.
