Parkour and Freerunning Drills

P

My kung fu studio now offers classes in Parkour and Freerunning, two arts which are really starting to take off. One of the instructors described parkour as “the art of getting from point A to point B as efficiently as possible” — meaning, whatever you have to jump over, under, or through, you do. Freerunning, on the other hand, is “parkour with style.”

A few nights ago, there was a midnight session at our studio, and I thought you might enjoy seeing how some really good folks train:

Parkour not only looks cool, but has a lot of great, real-world applications. My dance card is already full, but I’d recommend this to anyone looking to get a good workout who doesn’t necessarily care about traditional martial arts.

  • Maybe I'm missing something, but effeciency doesn't really look like part of the equation…

    • That would be the "Freerunning" part — the part where they look awesome while traversing an urban landscape. :)
