“Inspired by athletics, the sport is about getting from A to B as fast and directly as you can using just physical strength and dexterity to overcome obstacles such as walls, buildings or fences.”
Telegraph Newspaper reporter, on the sport of Parkour*, which is taking off across Iran. (Watch a video below.)

*Parkour…includes the physical practice of traversing elements in both urban and rural settings. The goal is to move from one point to another as quickly and efficiently as possible. This discipline was created in France, … It is inspired by “the natural method of physical education” by Georges Hébert. It was then spread worldwide by films, television reports, and amateur videos on the Internet.  The technique of parkour is also used and perfected by the French army and proves increasingly useful in the army.
