What is parkour?
Parkour is a primarily non-competitive discipline and philosophy where practitioners adapt their movement to overcome physical obstacles in their environment. It is an empowering and diverse activity with several different schools of practice.
Where do you do parkour?
Most parkour occurs outdoors in public places anywhere you can find suitable obstacles (things that aren't slippery and won't break). This includes urban settings in city centres and natural outdoor spaces. Check out the New Zealand Movement Card for more details on property, trespass, and liability.
