Risk-takers

Risk-takers or Self-challengers?

Although parkour is not an extreme sport, it does carry inherent risk with it just as any athletic training discipline does.

The experienced traceurs do not engage in the activity in order to experience the adrenaline-rush that comes from excessive risk-taking. Rather, they view their practise as challenging themselves to overcome limitation and the restraints of fear and inhibition.

The goal of complete functionality within any situation is paramount, and in order to achieve this state both mentally and physically it is necessary to face and overcome the challenges that are part and parcel of parkour training.

The training in parkour enables the practitioner to learn to manage risk and through exposure to challenging situations to become a better, safer person all round.
