Parkour… In The 1930′s.
Parkour – The non-competitive sport originating in France of traversing mainly urban landscapes by running, climbing and jumping. Free Runners run along a route, attempting to navigate obstacles in the most efficient way possible, using only their bodies. Skills such as vaulting, rolling, swinging and wall scaling are employed. Parkour can be practiced anywhere, but areas dense with obstacles are preferable and it is most commonly practiced in urban areas.
This athletic art form is what most people would consider a fairly recent “trend”. But when I came across this video, I realized that the physical acts involved in Parkour have been practiced as early as the 1930′s in the U.S. Check the method below.
