Now, Wikipedia defines Parkour as follows:
Parkour (sometimes also abbreviated to PK) or l’art du dÃ©placement (English: the art of movement) is an activity with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, using principally the abilities of the human body. It is meant to help one overcome obstacles, which can be anything in the surrounding environmentâ€”from branches and rocks to rails and concrete wallsâ€”and can be practiced in both rural and urban areas. Parkour practitioners are referred to as traceurs, or traceuses for females.
