Parkour: A philosophy and training method for movement through any environment at speed. The concept is to overcome all physical and mental obstacles in your path by using your body and mind to run, climb, jump and vault.
Children are constantly pushing at and expanding their physical and mental limits as they move through their environments. As they explore the landscape around them, our four kids are in constant motion; running, jumping, climbing, springing up and off and over trees, boulders and creeks. Having been very impressed by a few Youtube videos of parkour, they like to pretend they are practising this art of navigating obstacles with incredible flexibility, strength, discipline and agility. Perhaps they may be traceurs in the making, or maybe this is just simple bush life at its best, as practised by four happy children.
