Seen as the art of moving from one location to another in the most efficient manner possible, parkour is a physical discipline preoccupied with gymnastic efficiency through the surmounting of urban architectural features that are designed to both facilitate and impede everyday pedestrian movements in the city. This thesis is an examination of the practice, and its representation in various films, YouTube clips, documentaries and advertisements.
