Freerunning - The Art of Movement by Tomasz Gudzowaty

The urban sport known as Freerunning originated in France in the late 1980s. It is often referred to by its French name, Parkour, although today these terms are not exactly interchangeable. Deeply influenced by different cultural reference points, including stunt depictions in movies such as The Matrix or Jackie Chan’s comedies, video games, break dancing, and martial arts choreography, Parkour/Freerunning has become a lifestyle and philosophy among younger generations. In its orthodox form, Parkour is a strictly individualistic, non-competitive and non-commercial activity, with the ultimate aim to cross physical thresholds of urban space. Freerunning is taken more liberally, and it is simply the art of movement, practiced out of love or professionally. It embraces elements of tricking and street stunts, creating an athletic and aesthetically pleasing way of moving.
