One of the most popular AADL events last year was the fall lecture (with video footage) on Parkour and Freerunning led by American Ninja Warriorâ€™s Levi Meeuwenberg. So we are excited to offer another opportunity to revisit the topic, this time at a facility where experts will present a live demo. Parkour is the art of moving through your environment using only your body and the surroundings to propel yourself. It can include running, jumping, climbing, even crawling, if that is the most suitable movement for the situation. Mike Metze, leader of the UM Parkour Club, will discuss the sport and then offer a live demonstration with Parkour experts at the Meri Lou Murray Recreation Center (2960 Washtenaw Avenue in Ann Arbor).
