Add to Scrapbook

Mick McKeen, Glasgow Parkour coaching, Glasgow.

Mick started practicing Parkour over ten years ago, coming into the discipline with a background in martial arts. After years of training, he became a coach with Glasgow Parkour Coaching in the summer of 2008. In the time since then he has travelled across Europe teaching with – and learning from – the founders of Parkour as well as their original students. He is also studying to be an English Teacher!

He spoke about how Parkour practitioners view spaces, how they interpret them for ‘play’ and the societal consequences of acting on that interpretation.
