Hello , My name is Yoann”Zephyr”Leroux and I have been practicing Parkour/Freerunning for 14 years, and if you would like to see my own individual style I would like to invite you to watch my videos.
My loves: Parkour/Freerunning, Acrobatic Stunt Arts, Martial Arts Tricking, Extreme Sports, Climbing, Roller Blading, All urban movement, Hip-hop and B-boy, Traveling and meeting new people, and more…
For me Parkour is a life experience, an evolution which nourishes the self and the personality of the person who practices it. Above all else, it is a physical and mental method to prepare our body and spirit, which sharpens our senses of touch, sight and reflexes. The body forges and sharpens itself like a weapon which should not be used to its maximum except in the case of absolute necessity by its owner. For me, someone who uses it in all its forms, whether it be freestyle or utility, it remains for me an art, a passion, a vocation.
The generations evolve, Parkour evolves, but the basis of Parkour stays the same. At this point, we can’t change the older generation, so it’s up to the new generation to take up the baton and move, without any second thoughts, as a new Parkour emerges and evolves.
I can’t define Parkour, or frame it, but to me Parkour means creating a mix of Urban Arts, which mix together to create ones own personal style. Martial Arts, Dance, Acrobatics all mix together with Parkour creating a kind of “sandwich” which I like to call “Free-style Parkour”. Parkour is the bread and the other Urban Arts are the ingredients that you choose to put between the two slices!
And the best thing about Parkour is the “lifestyle” as we experience this lifestyle every moment, every second of the day as we are not only a family, but a community which pushes its limits whether it be against oneself or against the street.
