- Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement (crawling) and other movements as deemed most suitable for the situation.
- Freerunning is often associated with Parkour by adding acrobatic and stylish moves, showcasing the art of movement:
- Freerunning is a way of expression by interacting with various obstacles and environment.
- Freerunning may include flipping and spinning. Practitioners of Freerunning usually do Parkour as well.
While there is no official list of "moves" in parkour, the style in which practitioners move often sets them apart from others, and there are a number of movements considered fundamental. Some examples of common movements are:
- Vaulting over obstacles.
- Precision jumping and landing accurately with the feet on small or narrow obstacles.
- Arm jumps jumping and landing feet-first on a vertical surface, catching the horizontal top with the hands.
- Using a rolling motion to help absorb impacts from larger drops.
- Running towards a high wall and then jumping and pushing off the wall with a foot to reach the top of the wall.
- Moving from a position hanging from a wall-top or ledge, to standing on the top or over to the other side.
- Parkour is practiced without equipment of any kind.
- Practitioners normally train wearing light, non-restrictive casual clothing.
- Traceurs who wear gloves are rare—bare hands are considered better for grip and tactile feedback.
- Light running shoes with good grip and flexibility are encouraged because they allow for more natural and fluid movements.
