Parkour is a training discipline where practitioners (called traceurs) aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assisting equipment, and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. At Orlando Parkour, they help teach and show you how to increase your XMA. This practice is a full mix of martial arts and gymnastics. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, plyometrics, rolling, and quadrupedal movement.
