PARKOUR HISTORY actually Parkour has always existed since the birth of movement. Until to the famous movie chase scenes of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan Since the hunting of the Neanderthals from the Eastern martial arts like Ninjutsu and Qing Dong movements similar to those of Parkour have been always taught for centuries and also with a similar aim.
Parkour or l'art du déplacement (the art of movement)
Was developed in Lisses, France sometime in the 1980’s
By a group of nine young men of different influences. Yamakasi.
And was greatly influenced by Georges Hebert MethodeNaturelle“Natural Method” in which you train the body to be strong to become useful.

He continued to develop his strength and dexterity in order to be useful in life, as Raymond had advised him.
yamakasi A group of traceurs who played an important role for the development of parkour. They contributed philosophies and theories for the discipline. What parkour today, is because of them. Two Motion pictures starring the group were produced with the same name. This helped with the introduction of Parkour worldwide. The word yamakasi is taken from the Lingala language. Means "strong body", "strong spirit", "strong person”. Yamakasi *traceur- practioner of parkour

Also even the kids Everyday numerous people try to explore parkour and seek training Parkour is recognized worldwide as different Nations have their own Parkour Groups of course we have our own PARKOUR PHILIPPINES
The Parkour discipline has reached the Philippines as groups like these and many more exists.
and you probably don’t know that we have our local community of traceurs here in Lucena City Trains at Perez Park every Saturday 6am – 12nn
PARKOUR has always been mistaken as an extreme sport, but if you look onto it a little closer you’ll know that it is not a sport but a discipline instead. Many criticize Parkour, and don’t appreciate its usefulness and the benefits it can give us for our daily lives. Parkour can teach us different values applicable in real life. We become stronger not only physically but mentally as well. Parkour can also teach us to become better human beings.
