NJ Parkour & Freerunning Facility

Here is another first for New Jersey. Pinnacle Parkour Academy’s facility in  Sicklerville NJ is the first facility on the east coast that is dedicated to Parkour and Freerunning.

Parkour (French pronunciation: [paʁˈkuʁ]) (abbreviated PK), also called “the art of displacement“,[1] is a training discipline of movement and holistic well-being[2]. The simplest way to visualize parkour is that of street gymnastics;[3] while this may describe the closely related activity freerunning, it misses the practical philosophy of parkour.[citation needed]

Practitioners aim to move quickly and efficiently through their environment using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves, negotiating obstacles in between. They try to maintain as much momentum as possible without being unsafe. Parkour can include running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, spinning, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement and more, if they are the most suitable movements for the situation.[4][5][6]
