Parkour is a new sport. It has one goal. People who do it want to move their bodies very quickly and easily over different things. They use only their bodies for it. They do it usually in cities where people must go over many different barriers. The sport started in France. David Belle started it. He wanted to move quickly from one place to another in a dangerous situation.

In 1988, David Belle was only 15 years old. His father was a great fireman. He helped his son with training. David and his classmates started to train and started to move over barriers in a city. They gave it a name parkour. Many people do it now because it is their hobby and it is fun.
