Sébastien Foucan, born May 27th 1974, one of the founding fathers of our discipline and name giver of “Art Du Déplacement” (en.: Art of movement, or ADD) and “Freerunning”, is one of the most important figures of our movement culture. Towards the End of the 1980s in Lisses, Evry & Sarcelles Sébastien and his friends began developing what we know as Parkour today.
He is also pivotal to the historical development of Freerunning, a name which was originally just a translation for Parkour, in the influential documentation “Jump London” and has since established itself as a term for an distinct movement culture. Through his opening scene in the James Bond movie “Casino Royale”, he and Parkour/ Freerunning gained major attention worldwide.
Sébastien has been teaching for many years in the Foucan Freerunning Academy and has planed a worldwide workshop tour for 2018, in which the ParkourONE Academy will also be a focal point. And we are proud to offer two Experience as well as two Culture Workshops with him.
