A term introduced by parkour practitioner Sebastien Foucan in a programme called Jump London as a synonym for parkour. The usage has since changed through the adverse reaction of parkour practitioners to somersaults and non-efficient movements being introduced to the discipline.


free running ‎(uncountable)

  1. The activity of combining parkour with gymnastics to pass obstacles and demonstrate athletic talent, most often in urban environments.
