Translated it says: Parkour is a method of physical training which allows us to overcome obstacles, both in the urban and natural environments.



more generically:
From Stephane Vigroux (PKGenerations)

Parkour is a movement-based practice aiming to help make individuals physically and mentally stronger, becoming balanced and rounded human beings who then help the community and others with those strong foundations.

All inclusive definition (by Mouvement International du Parkour, Freerunning et l’Art Du Déplacement):

Parkour Freerunning and L'Art Du Déplacement involve practitioners moving through and over their environment and its obstacles, whether built or natural, using only their own bodies. Often the practice involves running, jumping, swinging, vaulting and climbing. Parkour has developed with an emphasis on utility and efficiency, while freerunning also incorporates a strong element of creative self-expression, often adding movements from other physical disciplines and arts. L'Art Du Deplacement places a strong emphasis on personal development, teaching self expression that incorporates every personal influence and quality.
