Originating in France with the Yamakasi group, parkour was developed from military obstacle course training. In essence, parkour is running, swinging, jumping, and climbing from point A to point B in the quickest way possible. It has eased itself stealthily from the underground shadows of Paris to become a world-wide sport. It combines all the best gymnastics and tumbling aspects with the freedom of individual creativity.
