Parkour has become a thriving scene in the UK and indeed worldwide in the past 10 or so years.
Parkour videos have gone viral around the globe, the likes of the real life parkour Assassin’s Creed series and the ‘Best of freerunning and parkour’ vid which has only racked up over 70 million views. Parkour fails have been gaining a rather practicably large amount of views online also.
Parkour athletes like David Belle, Sebastien Foucan and James Kingston have become famous, and the sport of parkour has become something that it’s no real surprise to hear about on a day-to-day basis, in conversation or on the news or online.
While very few people will no longer ask the question ‘What is parkour?’ though, one topic does seem to linger largely around the sport, confusing the general public, confusing the internet and probably quite frustrating a lot of the professionals.
