Parkour integrates several disciplines; it could be said to be a sport, a hobby, and a philosophy. It is the art of using solely your body to navigate from point A to B in the least time possible, which involves besides leaping, climbing and sprinting, various unusual and complex movements to negotiate obstacles. It started off as part of French military training and has since evolved as a urban sport, practiced in many cities around the world. Essentially, parkour is about learning to navigate obstacles, and rethinking the use of ones body and the use of public spaces. Some practitioners of parkour believe that the techniques they learn in the practice of this sport also carry over into their daily lives, making them more courageous and confident with obstacles ranging from disagreements in the office to more personal emotional.
