Photo Brief: Parkour

Daniel Osiason//The Miami Hurricane

Joshua Romeo practices an art called free-running, which branches from the sport begun in France know as parkour. The objective of parkour is to cross a space strewn with obstacles in the fastest time, with as little effort as possible. In Free-running, trees and walls are used as springboards into flips and other acrobatic feats, instead of simply obstacles that must be surpassed. Romeo taught himself free-funning at the University of Miami in search of an alternative form of exercise. It may look spontaneous, but he acknowledges that he has learned from the professionals that much care is needed. “I never attempt a move or a jump unless I’m sure I can handle it.”
