Parkour for Martial Arts Conditioning, Agility, etc.

Parkour can be used for martial arts conditioning, agility and strength training. Parkour involves moving through the environment in the fastest way possible. Athletes using parkour often look like stuntmen because they will use any means in order to move through, around, over or under an obstacle (i.e. jump and leap). Parkour is derived from the training utilized in military obstacle courses.

In martial arts movies, parkour is often combined with actual martial arts techniques (i.e. kicks and punches) in order to create spectacular combat scenes. However, given the nature of parkour (i.e. leaping obstacles or rapidly climbing walls unassisted), it is very easy for participants to get injured.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For more stamina training, please visit the Martial Arts Conditioning section.
