What made you guys take up parkour & free running as a passion?
Chaos Faktory: Parkour and Freerunning have movements adapted from various arts like martial arts, gymnastics and b-boying. All of us have been practicing different movement arts, and Parkour & Freeruning have united us and given us the grounds for practicing everything together. Our body is meant to move and this art gives it a direction. Parkour is all about exploring one’s physical potential and pushing the limits, about realising one’s true mental and physical potential, and about overcoming the obstacles and fear. We tend to apply this thought into our personal and professional life which keeps everyone motivated. This is our passion which motivates us and helps us live a healthy & balanced life.
