2017 Report on the State of International Parkour Organization

The goal of this report is to provide an unbiased overview of the current state of global parkour organizations. This is not an attempt to support or renounce any particular organization, but rather to provide a single location where the information about each organization can be easily viewed and compared. This report was produced as background research for a presentation given by Craig Constantine on September 29th, 2017, in Brooklyn, New York, as part of the 2017 Art of Retreat event. The report is posted in the Parkour Forum in a dedicated area for Discussion of Global Organization.
