Parkour is an incredibly powerful and flexible tool for getting young people of all ages in schools physically and mentally active.
Parkour practice builds all the components of healthy development including strength, mobility, coordination, agility, proprioception and balance in flight, cardiovascular fitness, muscular endurance and power, while also developing resilience, confidence, problem-solving skills, mental health, community values and self-discipline.
Parkour also provides a way for young people to engage with and learn to manage risk and fear – vital abilities in any young person’s development process.
