What is Parkour all about?

Parkour has been popping up more and more in the news, on social media, and in viral videos. While you might think it’s just stunts or challenges; it is actually one of the fastest growing sports in the world. There are more competitions and exhibitions being organized each year. It wouldn’t be a total surprise if Parkour made it to the Xgames soon. It is presenting a challenge to athletes, and to those just looking for a way to get fit that isn’t boring, that is catching people’s attention.

What is it?

The simplest description of Parkour is that it is a challenge to get from point A to point B as fast as possible, using the most direct route, and using only your body and anything on-site at the moment of the challenge. Parkour can be done on official obstacle courses, but you will more often find its practitioners running up the sides of buildings, flipping off awnings, and bare skating down rails. The goal of Parkour is to enable you to respond to get out of, or into, any area using what is on hand. It differs from programs such as CrossFit (which has some similar elements), because there is an underlying purpose to developing the strength and skill to cross any obstacle at any moment.

      The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my option to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you might fix if you happen to werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    • Just a quick note – what we old-timers call the Army Medical Museum is now a very modern National Museum of Health and Medicine. I remember the old one on the grounds of the Smithsonian. It was dark and scary looking, and the displays were much more macabre than the current cleaned up ones! I liked the old one better.

    • Oil and propane line tubing? That stuff is usually like 3/8th, and thin enough to bend by hand. At best, scrapped, that’ll bring five bucks, *if that*.

    • douglasking2 on October 18, 2011 I am sorry if you feel I am rude, and I apologise. However, I work in ECE in Sri Lanka and for videos toe useful they must demonstrate with real situations. I do a lot of filming to use with my work, to show both good and poor practice, but without real situations, it like learning to drive from reading an instruction manual or hearing a lecture.

    • 幾時在餐廳的魚翅吾系早早煮好的?吾通点菜時、老闆先至話”好、等我立即去海到殺條鯊魚先”。淨系用”鯊魚既已早死了”、吾食"是浪費食物"仲吾環保的藉口,那是不是任何endangered species 或 動物都可以gom講而去食他門?好、現在吾系話鯊魚是面臨絕種,系殺他門的方法太殘忍、如果人能罷吃魚翅,maybe we can save the sharks' lives.将来捕鯊的人会怎様改善捕捉方法或去做人工養殖等設想、全是設想而已. 講就好聴、幾時真系有人gom做, mo 人知。Market上有demand就有supply. Being a consumer of é­šç¿…, 您, 素顔小姐,就在support魚翅事業、support鯊魚的虐殺行為。Susanna

    • GILLES / na minha opinião a MULHER não deve fingir o orgasmo, poís é notório que elas sentem prazer no corpo inteiro, esperciencia que observo em minha esposa, que nunca fingiu. O ato inocente pod frustar o homem, pois dá para perceber se ela goza ou não, assim sendo sinceras será facil dedectar doenças psicosomaticas que prejudica a saude sexual.Gostei deste comentário ou não: 0

    • Bring it by my office, enough over enthusiastic people to mod the bike. Filters, valves et al. I wouldn’t put it past the riders to fit in another engine! Congrats on the new bike, and yes please make sure you have the helmet on while riding.

    • Kaikille äideille psykologia ja kasvatustiede pakolliseksi. Oletteko tutustuneet em. haarojen tohtoreiden lapsiin?hienosti blogisti herättää keskustelua. Allekirjoittanut ajattelee synniksi sen, joka vie ilon elämältä. Ahdistuksena se usein ilmenee, ja sen kun saa purkaa toiselle matkaystävälle ja uskoa anteeksi, oli se sitten paha uni, yleinen elämän ahdistus, tai vaikka blogistin kiusaantuneisuus isosta perheestä, niin kyllä se helpottaa vanhempaakin. Eikä synninpäästöltä vie arvoa synnin suuruus. Eikä se inflaatiota nyky-arvomaailmassa kovin helposti koe.

    • Quote: Bernard’s piece claimed that it is just a myth that Nazi Germany had restrictive gun control laws and he blames the NRA for promoting this myth.This is ironic. In John Ross’ Unintended Consequences, one of his characters points out (rightfully) that the NRA often gets credit/blame for the actions of other organizations.In this case
