Parkour - Reconnection Redefined
Parkour is a training discipline born in France in 1988 to facilitate fun, safe and efficient movement through an urban environment. From these humble beginnings, the discipline has developed into a recognised sport and spread across the world.
The Australian Parkour Association works for its members to facilitate teaching through affiliates, and advocate for the development of Parkour. Thus, when the European Parkour Equipment Standard was adopted in Australia in late 2020, the APA saw this as an opportunity to reach out locally and nationally to encourage development of Parkour facilities with the added confidence of knowing that there is now a recognised standard providing coverage from a liability perspective.
With new facilities, Parkour stands to reconnect youth with the world around them, reconnect all participants with a new sporting activity promoting health and wellbeing, and reconnecting ourselves with our community as we share in our passion for movement.
