The Difference Between Parkour and Freerunning

Beau from one of the top Berlin crews, Urban Idiots, explains the difference between Parkour and Freerunning...

Parkour is an urban sport and as a traceur (people practicing this discipline) you focus on moving from point a to point b as fast, smoothly and efficiently as possible. You are using the abilities of your body to surpass any obstacle in your surrounding whereby you are given complete freedom – physically and mentally.

Talking about free running you distance yourself from the ideal of efficient flow by using, more or less, acrobatic elements when moving from a to b. You start playing with your urban space an the obstacles in it – you get creative with it.
