Seminar of the 24th and 25th of July 2010

Posted on Sunday 4th July 2010


Parkour is the art of motion. Its’ name was given by a French man, David BELLE, who synthesized some of the gymnastic techniques with the Natural Method of Georges HEBERT.

Parkour is used essentially to go from a point A to a point B as fast and as efficiently as possible. Even if aesthetics isn’t the goal of the discipline, it remains part of the outcome you can achieve.

The work of Georges Hébert (Marine Officer 1875-1957) is based on practical exercises which are natural for humans to obtain a complete and useful development, from his maxim « être fort pour être utile » (« be strong to be efficient »).

The workout which emerged from the pioneers of the art such as David Belle, Sébastien Foucan and the Yamakasis consists in : training hard, re-enforcing the body and mind to find their track and continue their own path. They use a natural and urban environment and rediscover a way to move with speed and agility.

The strongest point of the art of motion is in the communion with the architecture and the space, the pleasure to feel ones body, to develop imagination, to overcome apprehensions and to rediscover a way of moving long since forgotten.

Try N’ Trace, through its activities, wants to promote the art of motion or Parkour by making people more aware of it and creating a meeting point for practitioners. By organizing meetings with other associations like Parkour Generations, it will give us the possibility to share and transmit respect, sincerity and self-control. As our association is non-profit, the benefits will serve to create these encounters and organize trips so the members can discover other skylines.
