Free Running or Parkour
Parkour or Free running is a great sport which originated in France and I wish to do it someday soon. So what is Parkour or Free Running? Parkour (abbreviated PK) is a training method which focuses on rational movement in both the natural and urban environments. The focus is to move around obstacles with speed and efficiency. Developed in France, the main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping.
