Campaign: Changing negative perceptions of parkour

I first got into parkour, which is a type of urban gymnastics, when I was in my teens.

 

It’s had a massive impact on my life and has helped me get to where I am now. It takes up a lot of time and energy and is something that I can do that’s positive.

 

But, I feel the activity is still snubbed by society with many people perceiving those who practice parkour as anti-social, vandals or troublemakers – which is not the case at all.

 

My team of traceurs and I are working with Fixers on a short film to challenge these misconceptions.

 

My biggest hope is for parkour to be taken more seriously. It’s helped me to change who I am and I’d like to promote it so it can help others too.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
