THE ORIGIN OF THE NAMES

PARKOUR

AROUND 2003  PARCOURS BECAME PAR”K”OUR 

FATHER OF ART DU DEPLACEMENT

IN 1998  WHEN THE FIRST EVER GROUP DECIDED TO CHOOSE THEIR NAME AROUND THE IDEA OF “STRONG SPIRIT AND STRONG MIND” AS AN ARTIST SEBASTIEN INSISTED TO ADD THE TERM “ART DU DEPLACEMENT”  TO NAME THE WAY THEY MOVE AS “PARCOURS” FROM PARCOURS DU COMBATTANT DIDN’T EMPHASIS ENOUGH THE NOTION OF ART.

FATHER OF FREERUNNING

IN 2003  THE IDEA TO CHANGE NAME CAME AFTER SEBASTIEN READ BRUCE LEE’S BOOK THE TAO OF JEET KUNE DO. IN THE QUEST OF FOLLOWING IS OWN WAY THE QUESTION SHOULD I KEEP USING PARKOUR OR SOMETHING ELSE ARISE. SEBASTIEN FOUND HIS ANSWER…

THE FIRST EVER LOGO

In the world of Parkour almost every group has a logo
here is the one Sebastien made for the first ever group
YAMAKASI L'art du déplacement

in the 80’s the discipline was simply focused on going outside and practice. No camera, no social media,
