From Mike Newman, “As a certified/qualified WFPF Parkour/Freerunning instructor, I consider myself to be an ambassador for the promotion of the discipline. Also, as a dedicated practitioner, I know first-hand the positive outcomes that can occur, both mentally and physically from regular exercise and have a long history of training in other disciplines such as mixed martial arts, boxing and weight training.
My love for Parkour stems from a deeper appreciation and connection to the world around me via a freedom of expression that, from a personal view, can only be found through Parkour.
