1. What is the strength of Parkour?
First of all, since you need to physically overcome diverse geographic features,
you can equally experience all territories of bodily movement you can get with your bare-hands or body
through climbing, hanging, jumping, and rolling and therefore you can improve the elements of physical strength in a balanced way.
In terms of mentality, while challenging the obstacles, you can overcome the fears during the process and explore yourself.
2. Isn't Parkour dangerous?
If you try to copy the movie scenes and the youtube videos, it is dangerous of course.
That is why coaches are important for Parkour.
We have systematic techniques for safety and training method.
If you actually learn it with the coaches,
you will find it not so dangerous and you are capable of performing it without difficulties.
3. I am a woman. Will I be able to make it? I don't think I can make it because I'm too old.
Parkour is an overall movement training anybody can do.
The life-risking challenges such as jumping between the buildings in the movies are a mere part of Parkour.
While Parkour has fierce and fancy motions like b-boying, there are also a number of elegant motions just like dancing.
Therefore, it is the best exercise anybody can try regardless of gender and age.
