Basic Parkour & Rock Climbing activity at Antargange - [21st October 2017] Registration is ON
The word comes from the French "Parcours", which
literally means, the way through, or the path. "Parkour" had its origins in
a training program for French Special Forces known as "Parcours du
combattant", or "The Path of the Warrior".
Developed from military obstacle course training, parkour is running, swinging, jumping, and climbing from point A to point B in the quickest way possible. It's also a viable way to incorporate fitness into your life since you get to develop coordination, balance, and total-body strength, all the while having fun and learning useful movements.
Sixty kilometers from
Bengaluru, Antargange in Kolar is a hill range with huge volcanic rocks and
boulders scattered all over. Thorny shrubs cover the hill, while there is
dense plantation forest at the base. The forty-five minutes hill climbing
will keep you panting for breath and opens up for an extensive and beautiful
green plateau on the top filled with boulders all around. Big and small
boulders have heaped to form a cave like formations offering an exhilarating
network of cave exploration activity which makes a perfect set up for
Parkour stunts. Register for this event if you are curious about exploring
these volcanic rocks through fastest ways the human body can offer.!!
