Parkour craze hits Mundaring

DOZENS of kids wound up the school break learning how to parkour with the professionals at the Mundaring Sculpture Park.

Australian Parkour Association instructors Isaac McLellan and Jack Woods led participants through an introductory workshop on the sport which was popularised in France in the 1990s.

Jack said parkour was used in a reach or emergency situation whereby participants have to use their body and mind to run, climb, jump and vault.

“When I first started parkour in 2009 it was quite discreet and unknown, but it is growing in popularity,” he said.

The workshop was run by Seen and Heard which is supported by the Shire of Mundaring and Parkerville Children and Youth Care to encourage youngsters to be active and participate in community life.
