Extreme Sports and Stunts

Practitioners of the art of movement known as parkour display strength, skill, and grace as they climb and leap over every urban obstacle in their path. Parkour is a physically demanding discipline that almost anyone of any means can practice with proper instruction and when safety measures are taken. This riveting book examines the origins of parkour and its global appeal. An engrossing narrative and exciting pictures introduce the reader to basic parkour moves, equipment, and terminology. Dynamic sidebars in each chapter take a deeper dive, profiling famous athletes and the discipline's impact on popular culture.
