I know that you are wondering what this word parkour means and why I am posting this video here in my blog. “Parkour is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movement to the environment” says the American parkour website. However, it should be known that parkour originated from France. The purpose of parkour is to move from one place to another using the human body and the objects available in our environment.
The primary reason for me to post the video here in my blog is for us to know more about the human potential which is unquestionably immeasurable. When I saw these videos for the first time I was absolutely astonished, as these men in the video looked like they were flying all over the place with absolute control. I very well know that you will enjoy these videos, but please make it a point to appreciate the amount of consistent practice they all would have labored in mastering those daring moves, for nobody can transform to become a genius overnight. Thomas Edison, an American inventor and scientist, had rightly said, “Genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” I hope the above quote provides some food for thought, for learning any discipline requires many years of consistent effort.
