Have you ever wanted to learn to run and move like those actors in action movies? We have all seen them jumping from building to building with ease and dropping and rolling from rooftops! Parkour is now recognised globally as the fastest growing ‘free-sport’ in the world and is the most uploaded type of sports video on the internet. 

Well, now you can, thanks to new FREE Parkour classes at The Yellow. 

These three-hour classes will be aimed at adults and children and will teach the basic discipline and movements of this globally renowned sport.  Children’s sessions will take place every Wednesday, and last 1.15 hours, followed by adult classes, which will last 90 minutes. Equipment will be specially brought in and designed for the new Yellow, and available to all, free of charge.

So, why not join in and become a part of this GLOBAL movement?

THE HISTORY OF PARKOUR

Le Parkour, though generally perceived as being invented by a handful of French founders in the 1980s, is actually a practice that precedes records. It has drawn on a myriad of sources, been inspired by a number of notable individuals and evolved through several traditions to arrive at the modern discipline now referred to as parkour or ‘l’art du deplacement’, also known as ‘free-running’ in English.

Though very much an underground and hidden movement in its early years, in the late 1990’s parkour began to catch the eye of media and advertising groups, as well as news broadcasters in Europe. Then in 2002/3 the discipline was catapulted into the limelight by such high profile exposure as the UK’s Channel 4 documentary Jump London, which starred Parkour Generations’ Team Members coming from France to move across the iconic landmarks of London, and Luc Besson’s movies District 13, Yamakasi, Les Fils Du Vent, followed by blockbusters such as Casino Royale, Babylon A.D., Tracers and others which starred several of the founders of the art who now make up the European Headquarters of Parkour Generations in London.

PARKOUR TODAY

Parkour is now seen as an art form, a training method, and a visual spectacle reaches across all strata of society, from extreme sports lovers to fitness enthusiasts, from artists to architects, and to young, old, male and female alike. All of us have a natural sense of parkour when young, moving as we please, with no boundaries and beyond convention.
