Parkour is the art of mobility over and around obstacles whilst running to and from places and situations in a fast and economic manner that requires flow, grace and style. It's origins as a sporting activity are in the assault course training of the French Foreign Legion military group and derived from the traditional practices of many eastern martial arts.

Free Running is a recent extension to or, a derivation from Parkour that includes various gymnastic tricks just for the fun of it, and showing-off of course. Pure Parkour, however, is about managing and minimising risks during the activity, for which reason, unlike free running, it is entirely consistent with self-defense/martial art principles and objectives.
