Parkour is the art of movement and action. Its co-founder, Sebastien Foucan, has performed it in movies, commercials, and the music video for Madonna's song "Jump." In this book, Foucan displays his gravity-defying moves while sharing the inspirational philosophy of free running. With electrifying photos of Foucan in action, the book offers a new approach to how one moves through the urban landscape and the velocity at which one lives.
The author co-developed parkour in Paris and has popularized and promoted it around the world. Similar to skateboarding, parkour is more than just wonderful exercise: it is a whole new perspective on how to conquer the obstacles in the city -- walls are for vaulting, rails are for riding, and steps are for jumping.
