Parkour ( or "Art of displacement" in english ) is a sport ( may be regarded as extreme sports at a high level ) of transforming the elements of sets of urban into hurdle by jumping, climbing or acrobatics. This discipline created in France ( in Lisses and in Évry ) by David Belle and Sébastien Foucan and the founding members of Yamakasi, is inspired by the classic obstacle course method of military training proposed by Georges Hébert. It then spread throughout the world through movies ( District 13, Yamakasi... ), reportages or homemade videos into websites such as YouTube, DailyMotion or Vuze.

The traceur and traceuse ( Parkour practitioners ) tries to find a path through places that nobody will normally follow. It is seeking to overcome obstacles by movements who want useful, effective, speedy and simple. The acrobatics (saltos, and so on.) Do not need to these qualities utility and efficiency, but can make an aesthetic and a pleasure.
