This is a last call for all traceurs out there who want to take part in a fantasticpsychology study into risk-taking, fear and parkour we are assisting with. The study has already had over 200 practitioners respond to fill out the short survey: the study closes soon so if you want to be part of it, get involved! Here are the details:

Since the start of this year, and as a follow-on to the raft of physiological and biomechanical studies we did with Roehampton University in 2010/11, we have been engaged in a new study with Birmingham University who are using parkour to try to understand the mechanics of how large primates, such as orang-utans, actually move through the canopy of a rainforest.

Parkour Research Ongoing

Continuing from the research we undertook last year with Roehampton University's sports research department, SPARC, today 6 of our team are taking part in further physiological tests in the labs to get a better understanding of the long-term effects of parkour training. So far the results have shown hugely positive long-term benefits, and we look forward to seeing what the geniuses at SPARC end up producing. More details to follow!

Parkour Physiological Research Begins..

Today Thomas and Dan spent the day at the SPARC labs at Roehampton University, working out some parameters for a series of physiological tests to be carried out on traceurs. The little data accrued today has already revealed some fairly amazing statistics regarding the balance and impact absorption ability of an experienced traceur. A great project to be involved in, we are very much looking forward to the further developments of the test series.
