L’art du déplacement also known as parkour is the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, using principally the abilities of the human body. Parkour is a non-competitive sport/activity that encompasses the art of movement, overcoming obstacles, freedom and human reclamation of urban environments. It’s like a fluid urban ballet.
A picture tells a thousand words. Here is a video of traceuses or female parkour practitioners with some great shots in and around London’s Southbank.
