HOW IS PARKOURING DIFFERENT FROM FREERUNNING?
Developed from military obstacle course training, Parkour is running, swinging, jumping, and climbing from point A to point B in the quickest way possible. Freerunning is similar, but it emphasizes the flashy side of parkour, with fancy flips and stylistic acrobatics. It’s more like an art of movement to express your creativity with your environment, the KKParkour blog explains.
