The TRuST development team, under the guidance of Roger Widmer first sat down together at the beginning of 2007 in Taegertschi, Switzerland to discuss the current and future situation of impartation of Parkour. Their concern was to affect the impartation of Parkour in a sustainable and positive manner.


Roger discovered the name “TRuST” by chance during a game of Scrabble in the train. Earlier on the the team always spoke of “TRaining und STandards” and never noticed the suitable word hidden within the label.
