#SupportLocal – Parkour and Freerunning

Be First!
by February 5, 2019 News, Shops

To be honest, I had never even heard about Parkour and Freerunning until my 13 year-old daughter mentioned that she was desperate to sign up.

I was delighted at first that she was willing to get off her skateboard, until I realised that she would still becoming home with bruised and scraped shins.

That being said, she is absolutely HOOKED, can hardly move for two days after each session because she is so stiff, and has now requested that she attend two sessions a week, as opposed to just the one lesson every Sunday!

Her balance, core strength and overall fitness improves each and every week, an added bonus to the fact that she adores it (and quite enjoys giving the boys a run for their money!)

THE FIRST LESSON IS FREE – SO LET YOUR OLDER KIDS TRY A LESSON AND SEE HOW THEY FEEL!

An upside for her parents (other than the fact that she is spending two hours doing hardcore outdoor exercise on a weekend, is that she attends classes at the Sandton Sports Club. This means that her devoted parents can have a leisurely two-hour breakfast on the patio of the at the on-site Milk Bar every Saturday – such a win for all parties!

WHAT IS PARKOUR & FREERUNNING?

In brief, Parkour is an art form that involves using your body to move efficiently and swiftly through any natural environment.

Practitioners of parkour are known as ‘traceurs’ and the goal of every traceur is to develop his/her body while perfecting a vocabulary of techniques in order to achieve a certain level of mastery over the natural environments that we all live in.

Traceurs learn to take the fastest route from point “A” to point “B” overcoming any obstacle in there way. They are masters of chase or escape.

Freerunning is much more expressive, and practitioners of freerunning are known as ‘freerunners’.

Like traceurs, there is a heavy emphasis on efficient and silent movement, but unlike traceurs freerunners do not move with any specific direction or destination in mind.

Instead, they see their canvas as the landscape, and the art as the potential motion that fills it.

Freerunners will run up walls and do backflips, twists, and spin all over the place decorating barriers and ledges with gracefully flowing movements inspired by many other art forms.
