Parkour around the world
Parkour, is an epic sport that is becoming increasingly famous around the world. In Australia it's known as “freerunning” and is best described as a form of movement where participants get around by running continuously while climbing on, jumping off and scaling urban landscapes. Similar to other sports of this nature, there are tricks that can be mastered. Some of these include:
- Monkey- grasp a rail with both hands and bring legs over railing.
- Wall Run- obvious, running on a wall.
- Verti Wall Run- Wall running except going upwards.
It is huge in France, Spain, Poland, Russia, Brazil and many other countries. We think it is EPIC! and should be as popular as the other extreme sports that us Aussie’s have mastered over the years! Check out this clip, and get training. Maybe this could be your new thing and motivate you to plan your next around the world trip based on these locations!
(Disclaimer - don't try this at home!!) If you would like to get serious about this sport, there is plenty of info at Parkourpedia (parkourpedia.com). If your serious about booking a round the world trip, then head to www.studentflights.com.au.
