The Ultimate Parkour & Freerunning Book
We are very pleased to introduce the English language version of the book Parkour & Freerunning – Discover Your Possibilities. As Founders of the U.S.-based World Freerunning Parkour Federation (WFPF), we have watched with enormous satisfaction as the sport, the art and the lifestyle known as Parkour has made its way into the hearts and imaginations of Americans of all ages and backgrounds.

From Sébastien Foucan’s amazing opening chase scene in CASINO ROYALE to David Belle’s first New York visit in 2007, to the success of the WFPF series MTV’s ULTIMATE PARKOUR CHALLENGE in the summer of 2010, awareness of Parkour has been growing exponentially across America. Though we lagged behind the rest of the Englishspeaking world for five years or more, Americans are now making up for lost time. In fact, there are now few towns anywhere in the U.S. that can’t boast at least one local freerunner testing his environment and his abilities, and posting his videos.
