Parkour is safe!
Parkour has many applications, and the spectacular is usually what sticks in people’s minds. Doing a flip between two buildings may be parkour, that’s the exception, the “black belt”. In reality, parkour is safer than any organized team sport per hours practiced per capita. The reasons are fairly simple, parkour is an indivudal sport using only your own power. There are no wheels, slippery surfaces, and you choose how much gravity you’re ready for. There is no opposing team trying to tackle, overtake, or win. One of the greatest values of parkour is that it teaches self reliance, parkour depends on the practitioner for safety, not the environment.
