PARKOUR


For those who don´t know, the parkour is a physical activity that is difficult to describe. The parkour is becoming very common in Portugal.It is the art of displacement, an activity with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, using principally the abilities of the human body. It is meant to help one overcome obstacles, which can be anything in the surrounding environment—from branches and rocks to rails and walls. Parkour practitioners are referred to as traceurs, or traceuses for females.
It was founded by David Belle in France. The main objective is to move from one point to another in the fastest way, using skills of the human body.


Now, watch some cool manoeuvres:
