‘the art of expression through motion’
Free running or freerunning is a form of urban acrobatics in which participants, known as free runners, use the city and rural landscape to perform movements through its structures. Free running embodies complete freedom of movement, adds aesthetic vaults and includes many acrobatic maneuvers such as tricking and street stunts, creating an athletic and aesthetically pleasing way of moving.
The term freerunning was established in 2003 during the filming of a documentary called Jump London which was a documentary about brining Parkour to London, starring Sébastien Foucan.
Free Running is viewed as an art in its community, and are usually described as a way to unite your body and your spirit with the environment. The founder and creator of free running, Sébastien Foucan, defines free running as a discipline to self-development and following your own way.
