Parkour was born in the banlieus (suburbs) of Paris in the 1980s and is now one of the fastest growing sports.  While often recognized in the fantastic images seen on Youtube or television, the sport is actually a form of movement that has roots in a wide variety of physical disciplines including gymnastics, martial arts, climbing, and track & field. Practitioners, known as traceurs, train to develop strength, speed, endurance, precision, spatial awareness, dynamism, and creativity in order to be as fluid, functional and liberated as possible in a physical movement and to overcome physical obstacles. Traceurs also develop a way of thinking based on rigorous self-discipline, autonomous action and self-will that allows them to overcome mental obstacles related to their movements.  We are hoping that this introductory 4-day clinic will peak your child's interest in this dynamic sport.
