Parkour: Dodging Obstacles
"We use the parks and gardens as outdoor gyms, and we use our bodies as obstacles to overcome. And I wasn't afraid to fail."
In Parkour: Dodging Obstacles from PechaKucha Night Beirut Vol. 25, Majed Medawar is a landscape architect and free-runner, amongst other things. In his talk, he tells us about his journey from gymnastics to parkour, from the gym to the outdoors and the city. Listen in to see how Parkour's philosophy and relationship to obstacles changed Majed's relationship to landscapes and challenges.
