Parkour is a holistic movement discipline that anyone can practice, regardless of age, experience, ability, or background. It requires you to adapt to new terrain, different obstacles and varied challenges the entire time, exploring and pushing your physical and mental limits simultaneously. By doing so, Parkour trains the whole individual, not just the athlete. Though in itself a purely individual skill, parkour has always had at its heart a powerful sense of community and social responsibility. Why become strong, capable and effective if you never use it to help others and improve the world around you? The benefits of parkour are immense.
Among other things, parkour improves physical and mental skills, helps develop a mindset to achieve your goals, provides you with freedom of movement and thought throughout life, improves your self-confidence, helps you handle changes and new challenges, enables you to perform daily tasks, and gets you in the best shape of your life. All this while having a great time and feeling like you are playing outside instead of doing mundane exercises. Through the diversity of the training and possibilities, you never get bored. You explore yourself, find your own path, unleash your creativity, get energized, and reduce the risk of injury with the supportive, welcoming, and friendly community.
