ABOUT PARKOUR

The all inclusive sport.

Anyone from any background or socioeconomic situation can practice parkour. It is becoming more and more popular in parts of the world that do not have access to organized sports or expensive equipment. The only equipment needed to practice parkour is a pair of closed toe shoes with a grippy rubber bottom. There are many free resources online to get someone started on their parkour journey. Set in Motion strives to continue the spread of this healthy, fun, and inclusive sport.

Is parkour a martial art?

Parkour is similar to a martial art in that it requires discipline, and at its core is based on just a few simple movements. As one progresses in parkour, the movements have nearly unlimited modifications that can be applied. Where it differs from a martial art is that parkour fosters creativity through “line building”, where a practitioner strings multiple moves together as smoothly as possible. As a practitioner learns their strengths and favorite moves, their “style” emerges.


Isn’t the point of parkour to get from A to B as efficiently as possible?

This was a popular explanation for parkour for many years, in order to help the public understand the point of practicing this sport. Some of the founders saw parkour in this way, while others wanted it to be more creative and open-ended. Over the years its definition has expanded, and parkour can include any and all movements. We borrow moves from breakdancing, martial arts, gymnastics, tricking, and many other disciplines. Today, parkour is generally thought of as, “The Art of Movement”.
