This is actually a video of a crossfit personal training but the trainer uses what amounts to parkour training for a women who is in her 70's or 80's it just shows how these simple principles of movement can inrich peoples lives of all ages and help them develop fitness in way that is interesting and enjoyable.

I shall not fear, fear is the mind killer the little death that precedes total obliteration

I will face my fear, I will let it pass over and through me and were it is gone, I will turn the inner eye and see its path, and only I will remain.

Of course, Parkour is scalable to all fitness levels.  Anyone who can walk under their own power is capable of some level of Parkour.  I would like to see a lot of older traceurs/traceuces emerge in the near future.
