What is Parkour?

There are lots of different ways that we hear Parkour described. Those people running over rooftops, jumping about and stuff, moving around efficiently… but what exactly is it?

It is…

A sport (since 2017)

A movement discipline

A way of being comfortable to move in urban environments through jumping, swinging, climbing and vaulting.

Meaningful in different ways to different people.

So whilst it can be characterised, the real definition is up to you! What is your definition of Parkour?
