What is the Parkour philosophy?
Parkour philosophy is a mindset to help you overcome obstacles mentally and physically. The practice is not competitive, and encourages one towards self improvement. It can often be compared to the martial arts because it is a discipline that focuses on mastery and improvement. As you learn the physical aspects and master the movements, you learn about your own body, overcome fears, learn to interact with the environment, gain control of your mind and body, and encourage yourself to excel. You develop spatial awareness, efficiency, balance, will power, courage, and honesty. The philosophies can be applied mentally and physically and can be seen positively influencing many aspects of your life.
