Parkour – level 3
Parkour is a new sport. Its goal is to move your body as quickly and easily as possible over different things using just your own body.

He wanted to move quickly from one place to another in an emergency using just his body.
In 1988, David Belle was only 15 years old. His father was a great fireman. He influenced his son. David and his classmates started to train and created new ways of moving in a city. They started to call it parkour. Many people do it now because it is their hobby and it is fun.
