Coach Rafe explains why training barefoot training is essential to a well developed parkour athlete and how to get started intelligently. Minimalist shoes are a good start, but true bare feet is where it's at. Watch it. Do it. Share it.
Dan Edwardes of Parkour Generations writes: "Barefoot training is perhaps intuitive to us as parkour practitioners due to the nature of our discipline being a raw, untamed physicality which reconnects us to our primal heritage. Parkour teaches you that you don’t need fancy, modern equipment or clothing to reveal your natural athletic potential, including footwear."
