Parkour is known as "the art of displacement" and hails from France. It's a training discipline that developed based on military obstacle course training. It became popular among young people, men especially in the 1990's and 2000's. The goal behind this is to be able to have total control of your body in the air as well as ground, moving efficiently and smoothly through a variety of obstacles. Parkour practitioners seem to defy gravity with the incredible movements and jumps they perform. It's breathtaking to watch!
