The use of your environment to move from point A to point B in the quickest time possible.

Often times considered a sport, but that is false. Parkour is more of a lifestyle than a sport. It cannot be a sport in that there are no rules, teams, nor strict styles and "fields".

Many people will form a "team" but do not realize that it is only a group or club. More often considered a community.

Commonly confused with Freerunning
I will parkour from that building to the next.

What may be referred to by some as a sport or a discipline, but what is really a foolish activity done by losers that have no real ability to play any real traditional sports or marital arts.
Joe: Want to go to the courts and play some ball?
John: No, I suck at basketball so instead I'm going to do some parkour. You know that stupid activity where you go in a straight line and go over obstacles instead of around them?

You know, that thing where people run around jumping off shit and they call it a sport.
Person 1: "What do they call it when dick bags run around jumping off shit and they call it a sport?"

Person 2: "Who could be that much of a wanker to call such a silly activity a sport?"

Person 1: "Hippies n' shit."

Person 1: "Oh, fuck, now I know what you mean: It's called 'parkour'. It must be French for 'being a dick' or 'being a wanker'. I get my French nouns and verbs mixed-up sometimes."

hippies dick bag
