The Bay Citizen reposted a story from New America Media that is based on Hyphen magazine’s parkour story and video.
Parkour has its origins in France and involves jumping, climbing and vaulting around, over and through obstacles. It looks like a fun and vigorous sport. Traceurs, what practitioners of parkour are called, have to be pretty athletic and in good shape.
The video is great and produced by former Hyphen Director of Photography Seng Chen and the story Ken Shen Robinson can be read in its entirety right now in the print edition of Hyphen. Subscribe to see it.
