                                                         Who is it for?

You might be thinking that Parkour is only for shirtless athletic guys but no,just about anybody can do Parkour in their own special way.From 3rd grade students to 20 year old office workers Parkour is a free for all sport that anybody can do anyway they want,just remember though that before you start you will need to know how to do basic movements,what to where,and the history of Parkour and how it started.But before you get onto that you will also need to know that you do not need to train a lot to do this sport and it's movement's so that you do not push yourself to hard for you to meet the strength ability that you already have so don't get all paranoid and freaked out that you can't do it like most people do.        



The history of Parkour started out as nobody didn't knew this sport even existed or found yet,when a man named Raymond Belle was born in 1939 and raised in Western Europe but was sent to a orphanage at the age of 7 where he would be safe from the first Indochina war broke out across the area and where he would be safe and  maintain the ability  to survive.As he grew stronger of his abilities he managed to make the team for the Paris Fire-Fighters as he grew older and stronger abilities like strength and agility.David Belle was born in 1973 and experimented with many gymnastics and sports clubs before he got curious enough to find a sport his father invented called Paurcours but soon evolved to the name of Parkour after many and more people soon noticed how that other people did it and the moves you can do  in it.Some of the runners are Sebastian Foucan and David Belle himself.Many people think people think that not that many people do Parkour but if they say that then they are wrong because a lot of people do the sport in there own way and so can you.

If you want to start learning Parkour right now so can try doing this on your own later then let's get started right away,but first remember that before you try the basic movements that you need be aware of your surroundings and where you are doing it so you do not get hurt badly.The first movement is that you need to learn how to run,Parkour is all about moving around on foot,not in a car or on a motorcycle but it will be pretty simple to start doing.Try by jogging for about 30 minutes for about 2 weeks so you can get the feel of how you will need to move from obsitcale to obsticale.obsticale. Next you will need to learn how to jump and fall,it won't be hard to do as long as you are careful and pick a good spot were you can do it safely.Start at a low ledge or hill where you can do the jump safely,next jump off the edge feet first and not headfirst so you don't hurt yourself.Now that you got the falling part down you will need to learn how jump across obstacles,start by jumping over small ledges of mats so can learn the basic feeling of how to do it.
