PARKOUR/ FREE-MOVEMENT

Movement Park AMAZING Parkour KIDS - Click here to see us in action!

Our Free Movement Sessions are about exploring and finding your limits and then breaking boundaries to reach your potential. It is about learning to challenge yourself, both mentally and physically whilst traveling around various obstacles using different movement techniques, such as vaulting, climbing, jumping and balancing 

Parkour is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. It is all about getting from one point to another in a complex environment, without assistive equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, and other movements as deemed most suitable for the situation. Parkour involves seeing the environment in a new way, and imagining the potential for navigating it by movement around, across, through, over and under its features.

History

Parkour was developed in France, primarily by Raymond Belle, and further by his son David and the latter's group of friends, the self-styled Yamakasi, during the late 1980s. The discipline was popularised in the late 1990s and 2000s through films, documentaries, and advertisements featuring the Yamakasi.

Where
Parkour can be practiced at the Movement Park facility both indoors and outside in our specially designed Parkour park. Movement Park also does satellite outreach classes in other areas so check our outreach programme for more details.

With a positive attitude and a little ingenuity, any activity can be made enjoyable for all.
