There are no borders, there are only obstacles
Basically, Parkour - a natural way to train the body to train rapid forward movement using everything in the environment at any time. This is the "art of movement" does not require any special equipment and ammunition for practice. This athletic discipline accessible to all, as combines the natural skills of the human body: running, jumping, climbing ... It is a sport that allows you to explore and develop the ability of your body that you can be useful in different situations. It develops skills that will help you more easily and move freely in the city, in parks, in the woods, all in all conditions. Catching parkour you will be much better to control the body.

The path of this movement began even when the man began to move skillfully to hunt, to attack and to defend itself. Later, people first ninja, and later the special forces soldiers trained in special techniques for the penetration movement, escapes and to perform any of its goals. Today firefighters, soldiers, police are trained for movement to extreme situations they are not stopped by various obstacles.
The main idea of this - the man who runs, and whom nothing can stop.
