Street sports

Street sportsFree runningFreerunning is a way of expression by interacting with various obstacles and environment. Freerunning may include flipping and spinning. These movements are usually adopted from other sports, such as gymnastics, tricking or breakdancing. Freerunners can create their own moves, flows and lines in different landscapes. It is all about becoming creative in an objective environment. Practitioners of freerunning usually do parkour as well. Freerunning is often associated with parkour by adding acrobatic and stylish moves, showcasing the art of movement. Freerunning was founded by Sebastien Foucan, who discussed the subject in Jump London in 2003.Foucan developed freerunning as a more inclusive form of parkour.[2] Parkour's efficient military style obstacle course training lends itself to martial art as a means of weapons avoidance and efficiently closing a distance to an opponent. Freerunning is derived from parkour, but it emphasizes not efficiency but artistry, allowing room for fancy flips and stylistic acrobatics.Freestyle footbagFreestyle footballPowerbockingParkourScooteringStreet workoutFreestyle Footbag is a footbag sport where players demonstrate their abilities by performing sequences of acrobatic tricks. The ending position of the bag on one trick becomes the starting position of the bag on the next trick. Tricks are created by combining different components between contacts (stalls or kicks, usually stalls). Components can be spins, dexterities (wrapping a leg around the bag in mid-air), or ducks (letting the bag pass a few inches above the neck). Contacts are usually on the inside of the foot behind the opposite support leg (clipper stall) or on the toe, however many inventive possibilities remain and are used to create a near-endless list of tricks.Freestyle football, also known as freestyle soccer in North America, is the art of self-expression through creatively juggling a football using any parts of the body, excluding the elbows to the hands. It combines football tricks, dance, acrobatics and music to entertain onlookers and compete with opponents. The official governing body for this sport is known as the World Freestyle Football Association (WFFA).Jumping stilts, bounce stilts or spring stilts are special stilts that allow the user to run, jump and perform various acrobatics. Spring stilts using fiberglass leaf springs were patented in the United States in 2004 under the trademark "PowerSkip", marketed for recreational and extreme sports use. Spring stilts are often mostly made of aluminium. Using these stilts is also called "bocking" or "powerbocking", a corrupted version of the name of the stilts' inventor, Alexander Böck.Parkour (French: [paʁkuʁ]) is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners, called tracers or traceurs, aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assistive equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible. Parkour includes running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, plyometrics, rolling, quadrupedal movement (crawling) and other movements as deemed most suitable for the situation (not to be confused with freerunning). Parkour's development from military training gives it some aspects of a non-combative martial art.Parkour is an activity that can be practiced alone or with others and is usually carried out in urban spaces, though it can be done anywhere.Parkour involves seeing one's environment in a new way, and imagining the potential for navigating it by movement around, across, through, over and under its features.Parkour as a type of movement was established by David Belle in France in 1988,however the practice of similar movements in various communities around the world leads to discussion of the relevance of such an attribution.The discipline was popularised in the late 1990s and 2000s through films, documentaries, video games and advertisements.Freestyle scootering (also known as scootering, scooter riding, or simply riding) is an extreme sport that involves using stunt scooters to perform freestyle tricks that are similar to bicycle motocross (BMX) and skateboarding.Since the sport's inception in 1999, stunt scooters have significantly evolved. For example, the scooter company Razor shifted from only producing standard Razor A models to also making custom-built scooters and incorporating parts from other companies. As the sport grew, businesses and systems were created to support the growth of the scootering community. An example of an early support system is the Scooter Resource (SR) forums, which helped grow the scootering community by connecting people interested in scootering in 2006. As scootering became more popular, there was a demand for stronger aftermarket parts and for scooter shops to carry those parts.Street workout is a physical activity performed mostly in outdoor parks or public facilities. It became a popular movement in Russia, Israel, Eastern Europe, and the United States, especially in New York City, Baltimore's urban neighborhoods, Myanmar, and Morocco.[citation needed] It has now spread all over the world. It is a combination of athletics, calisthenics, and sports.Street workout is a modern name for bodyweight workouts in outdoor parks. There are also street workout teams and organized competitions exercises such as pull-ups, chin-ups, push-ups, dips, bodyweight rows, muscle-ups, sit-ups and squats. Street workout also involves some static (isometric) holds such as the human flag, front lever, back lever, L-sit and planche.Street workout is divided in two main branches, the first one being strength training and the second dynamics. Strength training includes the isometric holds like: planche, front lever, back lever, etc. Also, strength training includes single arm pull ups, hefestos, muscle-ups, single arm pushups and many others. Dynamics includes movements like 360s and its variations, switchblades, and an incredible variety of tricks developed by the athletes which are connected with other moves in order to create routines or sets.
