Resumen

With the passage of time, the rate of students who are overweight and obese has increased, in order to reduce it
and increase physical condition, parkour-based content was chosen to produce novelty in classroom. However, it
was not known if this type of intervention would improve to a greater extent than methods that were normally
used in the subject. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to investigate the improvement provided by a
Didactic Unit based on parkour in student agility compared to a Didactic Unit for team sports, as well as
investigating how this improvement depended on gender. So as to clarify this uncertainty, 146 students
participated in the study, 67 in team sport group (CON) and 77 in parkour group (EXP). A pre and post
intervention agility test was used to evaluate the change provided by the Didactic Units. Results showed a
greater significant improvement in the EXP group (p = 0.002) compared to the CON group, suggesting that an
intervention through parkour achieves greater agility improvements. In the same line, when the sample was
segmented by sex, a greater change was observed in the male EXP group (p = 0.007) compared with CON
group, however, no differences were found when comparing female groups (p = 0.099). Therefore, it seems that
parkour is a valid method to increase the agility of students in Physical Education in secondary education,
getting better improvements than team sports in male gender, although it does not seem to be more favorable
than team sports in female gender

Resumen

Active methodologies have emerged in which they focus their importance of the teaching-learning process in students and not only on the result. In this way, research has been conducted using the active methodology Flipped Learning (FL) in all areas of Primary, Secondary and Higher Education. Objective: The current study aims to analyze the effect on student motivation after an intervention with the FL teaching technique, using a Parkour Didactic Unit in primary school students. Methods: One hundred students of 6th grade of Primary (11-12 years old) participated in this study, of which, 45 were girls and 55 were boys. It was randomly decided that 6ºB and 6ºD would follow the teaching styles that were already used in the center regularly (TRAD group) and otherwise, the 6ºA and 6ºC groups used FL teaching technique by watching videos created by the principal investigator for the present investigation (FLIP group). The Motivation Questionnaire in Physical Education in primary education and personal interview were applied before and after intervention. Results: The results showed an increase of intrinsic motivation (p < .001), identified motivation (p < .001) and introjected motivation (p < .001) in FLIP group. Moreover, external motivation, as well as the amotivation of the students, has decreased after the intervention. Regarding the TRAD group, a significant decrease in intrinsic motivation and identified motivation was observed. According to qualitative results, the most remarkable thing is that students consider FL as more fun, efficient, accepted and motivating. Conclusions: Intrinsic motivation increased significantly and amotivation values decrease in FL group. FL approach allows using more time in Physical Education classes and, consequently, it is perceived as more fun for the students.

Resumen

Action sports have increased in popularity, particularly over the past two decades. Research in the area has also proliferated, as multiple disciplinary perspectives and theoretical and conceptual frames have been applied to understanding and exploring a host of research questions concerning action sports culture, contexts and participants. However, despite this flurry of research activity, not much is known empirically about the learning of action sport participants, and few studies have focused specifically on learning in action sports. A scoping review was, therefore, conducted with the aim of synthesising the work that has been undertaken, and mapping future research agendas. Informed by Arksey and O'Malley's six-stage framework, leading sports and education databases and Google Scholar were searched for empirical literature on learning in action sports published before July 2018. After the results were screened and relevant studies identified, data were extracted and analysed using a frequency and thematic analysis to form both a descriptive and thematic summary. A total of 78 empirical studies both from the peer-reviewed and grey literature were included in the scoping review. The frequency analysis concerned information on publication year, academic field, study design, study tools, sport and population. The thematic analysis led to the development of five main themes, addressing learning in social, physical, cultural, and cognitive/psychological contexts and via various forms of feedback. The majority of articles on learning in action sports were published from 2010 onward, suggesting a growing interest in the area. More theses/dissertations resulted in peer-reviewed publications; however, less than half of all reviewed Artículo de revistas were published in education/pedagogy journals. Theoretical and conceptual frameworks were rarely explicitly referenced and/or lacked clarity. There was consensus that learning in action sports is largely informal and self-regulated. With the increasing professionalisation of many action sports and their inclusion in international competition events and also in national curricula, an increase in more formalised learning is predicted. Finally, learning in action sports can be highly individualistic but only a few studies acknowledged this. A greater variety of research questions and methodologies, and more work across disciplinary boundaries will assist in the generation of new knowledge.

Resumen

O Parkour é uma manifestação da cultura corporal de movimento que foi incluído na Base Nacional Curricular Comum (BNCC), por meio da unidade temática Práticas Corporais de Aventura. Sabe-se que alguns professores de Educação Física limitam suas aulas por não terem informações corretas sobre conteúdos não tradicionais e pela falta de estudos científicos relacionados ao parkour no âmbito escolar. OBJETIVO: O estudo tem como objetivo apresentar propostas de aulas do parkour na educação física escolar. MÉTODOS: A pesquisa é do tipo qualitativa e descritiva, com público-alvo de 30 estudantes do 9º ano do ensino fundamental anos finais. A técnica de investigação foi a observação, realizada a partir dos planos de aulas e imagens das atividades. RESULTADOS: Diante dos planos de aulas ministrados, observamos a participação, o entusiasmo e o empenho dos estudantes na aprendizagem dos movimentos e habilidades motoras básicas do parkour. CONCLUSÃO: O desenvolvimento das aulas foi significativo para os estudantes no que se refere a promover diversas perspectivas de aprendizagens (motoras, cognitivas, afetivas, cultural, social e emocional) do parkour. Promovemos atividades de forma sistematizadas, adequada com a faixa etária e pertinente com a realidade dos estudantes. Objetivamos o aprendizado de forma lúdica, com criatividade usando poucos materiais e espaço não delineado. O estudo é relevante já que há poucos estudos científicos sobre a prática do parkour no contexto escolar. ABSTRACT. Parkour: class proposals in school physical education. BACKGROUND: Parkour is a manifestation of the body culture of movement that was included in the National Common Curricular Base (BNCC), through the thematic unit body adventure practices. It is known that some Physical Education teachers limit their classes because they do not have correct information about non-traditional content and because of the lack of scientific studies related to parkour in the school environment. OBJECTIVE: The study aims to present proposals for parkour classes in school physical education. METHODS: This is a qualitative and descriptive research with a target population of 30 students in the ninth grade of elementary school. The study utilized observation methodology through lesson plans and images of activities. RESULTS: We observed the participation, enthusiasm, and commitment of students in learning the basic movements and motor skills of parkour. CONCLUSION: The development of classes was significant for students in terms of promoting diverse learning perspectives (motor, cognitive, affective, cultural, social, and emotional) of parkour. We promoted activities in a systematic way, which were appropriate to the age group and relevant to the students’ reality. Our goal is to promote fun learning through creativity using few materials and nondelineated space. The study is relevant because there are few scientific studies on the practice of parkour in the school context.

Resumen

Este es un estudio etnográfico que describe las motivaciones, formas de conocer, significar y de relacionarse en y con los espacios de la ciudad en la práctica del parkour en la ciudad de Bogotá. El análisis también busca develar las potencialidades pedagógicas de la práctica como posibilitadora de procesos formativos a partir del movimiento humano intencionado. Para su desarrollo se realizaron entrevistas abiertas y observaciones participantes registradas en video, audio y diarios de campo. Las observaciones se realizaron con 17 practicantes durante un periodo de seis meses con intervalos de tres veces por semana. Los Resultados indican que prácticas como el parkour trascienden los límites funcionales de la arquitectura, lo fundamental es respetar los procesos individuales, las capacidades y habilidades de cada sujeto, para esto, la infraestructura de la ciudad debe leerse como un reto necesario y obligatorio, pero no limitado y limitante. Este estudio permite concluir que la lógica de la práctica del parkour está sustentada en cierto tipo de pensamiento ecológico que acude al cuidado de sí y de los otros mediante el despliegue de sus acciones motrices, situaciones a partir de las cuales se fortalece el carácter del sujeto y su responsabilidad con el entorno.

Resumen

Parkour is the focus of this chapter. Traditionally, parkour is not something that young people practice. When they do try, they discover opportunities to explore the environment and the limits of their body in a natural and positive way. Starting from the experience of an expert practitioner and educator, this chapter underlines fundamental factors that contribute to the development of a positive attitude towards movement in children, adolescents and young adults. Such factors include: personal challenges, positive atmosphere and social support. These enhance a positive perception of competence, leading to intrinsic motivation and voluntary participation.

Abstract
In all-day schools and schools with extended education, children have the opportunity to spend the whole day at school. Full-day attendance at school requires a reorientation of extended time. Therefore, it is important to consider how children spend their time between lessons and identify conducive opportunities. As part of the project “Sport in the School Environment”, multiple mobile pop-up facilities were installed at several all-day schools in Zurich, Switzerland, for a period of 3–6 weeks. These facilities included “Parkour”, “Pumptrack”, “Skatepark”, and “Streetsoccer”. The aim was to find out whether these installations offer an opportunity for physical activity (PA). At the same time, social aspects of the students using these facilities as part of their all-day school attendance were observed. The following questions were investigated: How, by whom, and in which contexts are the installations used? The use of the facilities was evaluated content-analytically and descriptively. It was shown that the facilities are used intensively and in very different ways. The main focus of the pop-up facilities is on the use of the facilities and the creation of opportunities for children and young people to exercise and meet up with each other.

Resumen

Contemporary learning and development models have identified parkour-style training as a vehicle for athlete enrichment. However, perceptions of team-sport coaches and their receptiveness to such models of athlete enrichment have not been investigated and remain unclear. To explore how parkour-style training could be integrated into athlete development programs in team sports, we interviewed sport practitioners to explore their preexisting knowledge of parkour and their perceptions on its potential applications. Experienced talent development (n = 10) and strength and conditioning coaches (n = 10) were interviewed using an open-ended, semistructured approach with a two-stage thematic analysis being conducted to identify themes. Three dimensions were identified: coaches’ general perceptions of parkour, potential applications of parkour, and feasibility of integrating parkour into athlete development programs. Participant perceptions revealed that: (a) parkour activities were viewed as supplementary activities to enrich sport-specific training routines, including use of obstacle courses and/or tag elements; (b) parkour-style obstacle environments needed to be scalable to allow individual athletes and coaches to manipulate object orientation and tasks using soft play and traditional gym equipment; and (c) the implementation of continued professional development opportunities, athlete-centered approaches to learning designs in sport, and coach–parent forums were recommended to support the integration of parkour-style training.

Resumen

The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate psychological differences between Parkour at non-competitive level and Artistic Gymnastics at competitive level in the pre-adolescent stage. Specifically, psychological aspects strictly related to sporting activities, such as motivation, anxiety and self-confidence, life satisfaction, and well-being were analyzed. 86 pre-adolescents participated in the study (Parkour Group—PG, n = 43; Artistic Gymnastic Group—AG, n = 43) aged between 9 and 14 years (mean age 11.5 ± 1.6 years, 62% of female), who completed a self-report questionnaire consisting of following measures: Sport Motivation Scale (SMS-28), Competitive State Anxiety Inventory 2 (CSAI-2), Multidimensional Students’ Life Satisfaction Scale (MSLSS), and Psychological Well-Being Scales (PWB). Results showed that pre-adolescents in the AG have higher values in intrinsic motivation for execution than their peers in the PG. This latter also have lower levels of cognitive and somatic anxiety and greater self-confidence than the AG group. In addition, the friend’s dimension concerning life satisfaction has a higher score in the PG than in the AG. Finally, no differences were found regarding well-being between the two pre-adolescent groups.

Resumen

High quality Physical Education should instigate and support all learners to develop into a lifelong participant in a way which upkeeps their own health, fitness, and well-being. There are, however, an ever-increasing number of children who drop out of participating in physical activities at the earliest opportunity, leading to an increase in sedentary lifestyles and a rise in childhood obesity. It is evidence such as this which indicates Physical Education, specifically in England, is not currently appropriate for all and requires change. To attempt to make the subject a more positive experience for all and to inspire lifelong involvement, varying the curriculum and including alternative activities for pupils might tap into useful wider cultures. This paper discusses the emergence of alternative sports, the challenges and synergies of implementation, and focuses on what could work and why.

Resumen

O Parkour é a arte do deslocamento que desde sua origem na França segue princípios associados a melhoria das valências físicas, cooperação, respeito, coragem e superação. Essa pesquisa objetiva identificar os elementos do Parkour que permitam reconhecer seu processo histórico no Brasil e que desvende seu modo de ser, para que se possa vislumbrar os rumos da atividade no futuro. Através da história oral de um praticante comparada com a pesquisa bibliográfica verificamos que há uma distância entre o Parkour e a Educação Física dissociando a aprendizagem de uma metodologia organizada e da prevenção de lesões. Além disso, a filosofia original está sendo contestada pelo princípio Olímpico da competição, ao qual o Parkour sempre se colocou contra.

Resumen

The purpose of this study was to investigate preservice teachers' (PSTs) knowledge of instructional task progressions (i.e., content development) and depth of content knowledge as a function of content courses in parkour and basketball. 18 preservice teachers (PSTs) (five female and 13 male) in Physical Education from a Belgian university engaged in a parkour and basketball content course. Each class consisted of a 4-day unit with a total duration of 12 hours and focused on the acquisition of specialized content knowledge through microteaching sessions. Before and after the content course, PSTs content development defined in terms of knowledge of instructional tasks was measured through content mapping. Two trained observers coded content maps independently and reliability was 86%, based on 75% of the total sample. For parkour, the median total number of tasks, informing and extending tasks, increased significantly after the content course (p = 0.001). For basketball, the median total number of tasks remained the same (p = 0.011). Median extending tasks decreased significantly (p = 0.003) while extending-applying tasks increased significantly (p = 0.007). Median depth of content knowledge did not improve and was 1.67 for parkour and 1.15 for basketball, which is below the recommended index of 3.0. For parkour, content courses positively increased PST's content development in terms of total and extending tasks. For basketball, the increase of extending-applying tasks reflected a game-based approach. Further research is needed to investigate how content courses should be designed to improve PST's knowledge of instructional tasks.

Resumen

Parkour is a relatively new sport, and so there has not yet been much published research relating to parkour, or more specifically, parkour coaching. There is a large body of knowledge relating to how sport coaches learn to coach, but such research has examined regulated sports; that is, sports with national governing bodies. In North America, where this study was conducted, parkour does not have any national governing bodies, rendering it unregulated. When asked how they learned to coach, parkour coaches from this study described the influences of various sources of learning: parkour coaching experience, previous leadership experience, experience as an athlete in parkour and other sports, other parkour coaches, non-parkour coaches, parkour coach education programmes, school, reflection, and the Internet. It will be interesting to see how the specific influences of these sources might change in the future if parkour in North America becomes regulated.

Resumen

Compared to traditional athletes and PE students, self-organized lifestyle sport practitioners usually have no podiums to reach or grades to earn. They have no authorized instructor available, but seem to treat this apparent deficiency as an opportunity to facilitate their own learning processes. However, from a traditional learning perspective, it can be challenging to understand how these processes unfold. Drawing on theoretical concepts from the educational sociologist Knorr Cetina, the aim of this study is therefore to understand how a self-organized mixed group of trickers, B-boys, and free-runners facilitate knowledge creation when no instructors guide or control their work. Based on observations and interviews we found that the practitioners’ knowledge developed in a continuous and invigorating circuit between a worldwide gym on the internet where the practitioners searched for updated knowledge, and the local gym where they practiced knowledge development as intra- and inter-disciplinary embodied interactions. The knowledge object conveyed by the practitioners as ‘kinesthetic understanding’ was not a fixed a-priori product that could be completely achieved, and the practitioners’ acceptance of the knowledge object’s essential incompleteness seemed to create a never-ending desire to glimpse the unattainable. The group of tumblers studied in this paper represent an alternative epistemic practice that should be explored in physical education contexts. However, such exploration requires the development of an affective and processual language that reflects the relational intimacy between students and their knowledge objects, rather than a constative language reflecting distance, achievement, and external assessment.

Resumen

This chapter argues that future scholarly accounts of Le Parkour and freerunning (PKFR), and all its associated elements, are well advised to consider the role of racialised and gendered discourse to avoid overstating the extent to which the movements distort ‘old’ certainties. PKFR emerged in a zeitgeist purportedly sympathetic to notions of enhanced civil liberty, multiculturalism and individualism. The genesis of PKFR has taken place at a socio-historical moment quite different to the ones in which older more traditional sports came into being. The history told by dreadlocks, particularly their aesthetic association with resistance and oppression, certainly appeal to some involved with PKFR who wish to associate with popular portrayals of traceurs as ‘heroic rebels and urban warriors’. Much of the literature on PKFR to date has understood the movements as consisting of disparate, but digitally connected, glocal communities, populated by boys and young men that struggle against ‘late modern capitalist modalities of life’.
