Helping The World Overcome Obstacles Through Parkour

The International Parkour Federation (IPF) assists in the formation of National Parkour Governing Bodies (NGB’s), mentors young parkour athletes around the world, and supports initiatives that exemplify the Parkour philosophy, “Be Strong to Be Useful.” In recent years, IPF has focused largely on the conflict-torn countries of the MENA region, and together with local athletes in Baghdad helped to open Iraq’s first Parkour school which now provides a safe place to train for more than 350 young athletes. IPF steadfastly supports gender and racial equality, and human diversity in all its global initiatives.


About IPF

In 2014, at the urging of our longtime mentor Mike Jacki, (former head of business development for Camp Woodward, former head of USA Skiing, former head of USA Gymnastics and a HUGE early supporter of Parkour), we filed non-profit incorporation papers in Indiana (later moved to New Jersey) for the International Parkour Federation. Mike warned us (prophetically as it turns out) that if we did not, the Federation International Gymnastique (FIG) would eventually make a play to appropriate Parkour, as they had with so many other disciplines.

Mission

The Mission of IPF is to promote the practice of Parkour and it’s disciplines throughout the world. IPF is committed to partnership with like-minded people of good will, with the goal of filling our 15 member board with a diverse group of global leaders who share our vision of inclusion. We will continue our pro-parkour, pro-social initiatives around the world, which we believe represent the best of the parkour philosophy, “Be strong to be useful.”
