  2. 2.  Parkour is a way to overcome obstacles like walls or railings. The practitioners do this in the most efficient way possible. There are many ways to over come an obstacle. People who practice Parkour have practiced for very long time and some can do every trick like climbing a 2 meter wall. Freerunnig includes jumping from roof to roof or climbing between buildings.
  3. 3.  Parkour came from A French naval officer by a man named George Herbert. George was promoted athletic skill. This was because he met many tribes in Africa that were all very athletic gymnasts but yet had no tutors. There bodies were splendid flexible, nimble, skilful and enduring. Herbert new that this needed to be combined with courage and altruism. Herbert then became a P.E tutor at Reims France. During WWI Herbert's teaching expanded to the French military education and training. Parkour is now in all military training named an obstacle course. This has led to civilian use everywhere.
  4. 4.  A lot of people consider David belle the founder. His father was born in 1939 in Vietnam cut off from his parents. He was sent to military orphanage at 7 years of age. Stuck there, he wanted to survive so he trained harder than the others so that he wouldn't be a victim of war. At night he would sneak out and climb trees or run. He would use the obstacle courses in secret and created his own to train harder and test his agility, endurance, and skill.
