it doesnt really have to be anything more, so why bother. If it wasnt fun i wouldnt do it, but it is fun, so i do it.

simple


Interesting. Parkour is so much more than fun to me. I could write several essays on the matter.


haha writing essays isnt fun at all to me, so i dont strive to be able to describe parkour in such a way where you could put it an an essay context. Dont think that because i take such a simple view, that parkour isnt as serious to me as it perhaps is to you, because you would be quite mistaken.

Im just a fan of simplicity, theres no need to make something complicated when in fact it is really, REALLY simple

I love writing. I'm big on communicating. I love to elaborate on things and express my opinion. I like to think I do it without ego too.

parkour is a part of who i am. its also a state of mind and a state of movement :)
I dont do this for respect
I dont do this for the rush
I dont do this for the crowd
I do to this incase i ever need to be ready
but most of all I do it for myself

These are very basic reasons, If you are just doing it for fun, or to relax, why condition on cold wet nights? I'm sure if you think more you will see there are much more, stronger reasons why you train, not just because its fun.

like i said its apart of who i am its became a state of mind to me away of looking at the world the feeling of just moveing effortlessly over an obstacle after ages of preparing for it anyways not trying to start an arguement ;)

Well for me it is like call from an obstacle to get through it... Every time i see an obstacle I go through it, with any possible, and fast way

i think training in the cold, dark and wet with your friends is fun.

I feel really sorry for people who dont find parkour fun

I do find it fun.
Very much so. I enjoy everything about it, but it's not the only reason why I train.

People who only train for fun are not training Parkour, just the movements.

parkour to me is a solution to obstacles in the most head on way, without folding to an objects power but to flow around it
without slowing down, i train to better myself to make what i can already do easier to do. but in answer to the original question of the forum i feel free when practicing parkour or free running because for something to impress myself i have to fear it and only in fear can i free my mind and learn new things
fear is our deepest wisdom

parkour is an escape,

from the troubles of my life, and things that are happening, i just forget them and be myself, and try to move and flow in the best way possible, i can be myself, i dont have to be what people expect me to be.

And its an art that i am dedicated to improve on, no matter hw long it will take, or how hard it might be at some times, i really want to improve, and become more confident in myself, and about what i do and how i approach things in life.

and its also something individual to me, as i move in my own way, as everyone does, but in a way more different to most people round me...farmers and the like :P

parkour helps me escape from everyday life and forget about the problems i may have. it also helps me to overcome my fears i face in life and its allways there when i feel alone. (parkour is a freind)

Parkour to me, is fun, yes. Yet, it is also more. It's a way of expression, that allows me to channel my emotions and feelings. It is my training, teaching me to be more aware, and think in a more logical manner. It allows me to be creative, and to know that i have an advantage over obstacles and people that are in my way, or that come after me. It also is a philosophy to me, that allows me to overcome obstacles in my life. That is what PK represents to me. 8)
