Jump City

Parkour is a complex discipline that developed out of military obstacle courses and has now been fully integrated into civilian life as an independent athletic endeavor. This is an opportunity to see the championships of this event and to witness all of the struggle and pain that goes into being able to successfully complete these challenges. No matter who wins, anyone who goes to the trouble of competing and is able to finish the course is already a winner for having undertaken such a complex and physically challenging task.
