Hi my name is Divyansh Saxena.
I am a 21 year old, young professional parkour/freerunning athlete from India. My hometown is Rampur UP. I have been training for 7 years now.
When I was a kid I used to play cricket and do some dance moves and I didn’t even know about parkour, but when I first saw some traceurs from my city running and jumping on the road, I said to myself, “I want to learn how to do that!” I started training right away. Day by day I learned more things, more flips, more movement and I can’t even describe the feeling I had every time I learned something new. I really started to love this new thing I had discovered! I started studying Animation and Video editing, and got a job but, but all I could think about was my training. I have dedicated my life to this sport. Every day I feel so lucky that I am able to do what I want to do.
Thank you to IPF-International Parkour Federation for bringing the WFPF Certification to Thailand, so that I could attend. With WFPF Master Trainer Robbie Corbett InternationalParkourFederation.com
I knew I had developed Parkour skills, but I realized what I was lacking was knowledge. I heard that IPF was sponsoring the WFPF Parkour Instructor Certification which was to be held in Bangkok, Thailand in July of 2017, and I knew I had to go. There I met WFPF Master Trainer Robbie Corbett, and Arash Salmanpour from AFPU (Asia Freerunning Parkour Union), as well as athletes attending from Iran, Turkey, and Tajikistan. I would like to thank David and Victor (IPF and WFPF co-founders), Coach -Robbie Corbett, and Arash. I believe that they are doing everything they can to spread this sport and helping our parkour community both in India and all the parkour communities around the world.
I am very very proud to be the first WFPF Sponsored athlete from India. With their guidance and the support from the Indian parkour community, IPF-International Parkour Federation, and my friends and family, I hope to help parkour grow and become an important sport in India.
Thank you to the Indian Parkour community!
