Parkour is an activity that requires strength and agility. It also allows you to develop the body and mind extensively by facing obstacles that come the way, using the body’s capabilities to overcome these challenges. Usually, many people practice parkour on a risky path in the city. They use as elements the sidewalks, railings, roofs of buildings, and other elevated surfaces that can be high risk. However, parkour courses are specifically designed for children with no chance of injury that could occur from practicing these activities in uncontrolled environments. This post will explain why parkour courses (psychomotor courses) are safe.
Designed according to age
Parkour courses even include elements so that younger children can carry out the activities without any risk. They can crawl, run, jump and perform many more suitable movements without fear of injury or doing activities that are not suitable for their age.

Special equipment suitable for the ages and range of children is used in parkour courses, focused on developing natural movement with secure and simple stunts.
Made with quality materials
