However you try to fight it, even you know that Parkour and Freerunning are merging.
Maybe if you thought about it, you could use moves and techniques from different styles to gain from your training.
What if you come upto a point where you have nothing in your arsenal to use against an obstical and you were too proud to use freerunning.
have you ever read the philosophies of both?
Many people take the principles they learn through parkour and apply them to their lives. By challenging themselves in parkour both mentally and physically, it becomes easier to deal with problems and obstacles in everyday life. When a difficult situation comes up in daily life, a parkour practitioner can see this as any other obstacle which they've learned to overcome quickly, efficiently, and without disruption to their intended path. Another part of the overall Parkour philosophy is to be useful in a variety of situations. Parkour itself does not strive to be a "complete" discipline.
Parkour itself does not strive to be a "complete" discipline.
To close in yourself to one strick way, is a contradiction to parkour.
Freerunning is an evolution. Move like an animal. be fluid like water or find your own balance with a certain philosophy. This is the path of the Freerunner. Be focused within yourself more than the outside world. - Sébastien Foucan
What's the difference between parkour and freerunning? Well, let's explain...
Parkour - the art of displacement is an art with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, but is Freerunning the same thing?
Parkour and Freerunning are different but not entirely. Parkour was developed prior to freerunning by David Belle. It consists of vaults and jumps. The deep philosophy behind parkour is not be controlled by your surroundings, which most people are. The have to walk along certain designated paths to get from A to B, but by using parkour there are no architectural boundaries and your path is free for you to choose.
It is not certain whether freerunning was initially supposed to be different to Parkour. The word 'freerunning' was first developed by Sebastein Foucan in order to make the word 'parkour' more accessible to an English-speaking audience. But freerunning now does differ slightly from parkour; the freerun philosophy is less about choosing your own path but more about fun and creativity. Freerunning involves somersaulting, flipping and flaring.
Some people say that Parkour and Freerunning are the same thing, and that parkour is a way of thinking and training, which helps you get from A to B as quickly and efficiently as possible, the vaults and jumps used are only by-products of this way of thinking and method to develop one's spirit and inner strength.
Now the differences between the two are getting even more confusing with the input of wushu, street stunts, grass gymnastics and tricking. Generally though, all these sports are being incorporated with freerunning more than parkour because of the more creative and open to change nature and philosophy of Freerunning.
Parkour and freerunning are very young sports and are still developing. The philosophy and difference between parkour and freerunning have many schools of thought surrounding them and all of which are valid.
So parkour, make your own path right? your own way? there's no restrictions? So who's to say what is or isnt parkour?
Parkour can be described in many different ways by many different people, Parkour can never be fully described or fully strict.
otherwise you contradict parkour itself.
your not exactly talking to a kid here dude.
If you wanna go that far.
Even UFF have incorporated Freerunning into parkour.
you going to contradict them?
Open minded, and open way.
THAT Is Parkour.
It might not be your way,
but isnt that the point?
