VIDEO: Parkour in the city of São Paulo


Parkour originated in France and is a solo pursuit so I was quite surprised to see a Parkour Academy in my neighboorhood. The training centre is called Tracer and offers classes to would be Parkour athletes. In retrospect it's a perfect fit with São Paulo's inescapably urban nature, its segregated public areas and limited open spaces.

The video below from the guys over at Canvas 24 P provides a powerful portrait of the city of São Paulo as seen from the perspective of Parkour. Well worth a watch:
