Parkour

I was in college moments ago I found something interesting that you might not have seen before. Yes, might not. A video that left me in awe. Parkour, ever heard of this 'activity'? I never did. Anyway, here's some brief information bout Parkour from Wikipedia.

Parkour

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Parkour (sometimes abbreviated to PK) or l'art du d├ęplacement (English: the art of displacement) is an activity with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, using principally the abilities of the human body.It is meant to help one overcome obstacles, which can be anything in the surrounding environment — from branches and rocks to rails and concrete walls — and can be practiced in both rural and urban areas. Parkour practitioners are referred to as traceurs, or traceuses for females.

Founded by David Belle in France, parkour focuses on practicing efficient movements to develop one's body and mind to be able to overcome obstacles in an emergency. It may also be a form of entertainment or pastime.
