We’ve entered our CEO, Damien Puddle into the AMP People’s Choice Scholarships and we need your help voting for him! Yes, he’s our CEO and gets to hob-nob at conferences with business types, but he does all the non fancy stuff too. Actually, he does almost everything for us. He’s fulltime, but we can only pay him for half his time. Lame eh?
With your help we’ll not only help him, but help spread parkour to more places in New Zealand. 50% of the scholarship will go towards his wages and 50% will go towards NZ Parkour projects.
Parkour is a non-competitive discipline and philosophy where practitioners adapt their movement to overcome physical obstacles in their environment.
Watch the video to see some of the movements and environments used in parkour training.
On the surface, parkour is the most fun we’ve ever had. Dig deeper, and parkour training teaches us how to move and think efficiently, effectively and creatively in any environment. It builds discipline, resilience and the capacity to overcome the challenges we face in everyday life, helping us to master our movement and our lives. By challenging ourselves to overcome obstacles we grow and develop in many ways – read Self Development through Parkour and see how parkour can change your life.
