The Spirit

The Spirit of Parkour

As well as being a physical discipline, Parkour is rooted in an ethos of developing and sustaining mental strength. The pioneers of Parkour would push themselves to the very edge of their limits in their training, to the point that their military training would pale in comparison. There is a well-known phrase often used within parkour that encapsulates a large part of the spirit: ‘one must become strong to be useful to others’. Another strong ethic within Parkour is that of teamwork and camaraderie.

The constant development of the individual, physically and mentally, in a positive direction, is an important part of the practise of Parkour.
