About Parkour

I want to tell you a bit about what Parkour is, from my point of view. It is a efficient way of moving through the environment of course, but it is also a lot more that that. I see it as a way to get to know myself both mentally and physically, to learn what i can do with my body and mind, and realize that i am much more capable than i thought yesterday. What is important is not to be the best, it is to be as good as you yourself can be. There would be no point in trying to be better than anyone, because we are all different and we all have to adapt to our own bodys. Therefore there are no two tracuers alike, and it is also why new ways of moving can be invented, because we have to adapt to ourselves and our environment. And since everything keeps changing, we ourselves must also keep adapting to new conditions, be they physical, mental or environmental. The reasons for practicing parkour can be many, and are different from tracuer to tracuer. But there is one thing that makes them more or less the same. We train for our own sake, not to become rich or famous, to get attention or anything like that. What we do is, in my opinion, is almost a kind of physical meditation. We explore the world around us, and with it, the world within us. We expand our knowledge of ourselves, and in that way understands everything a little better.
