​This collaboration is close to our hearts. The foundations of our approach to teaching Parkour/ADD is based on the work of these teams and the people within them that lead by four of the Yamakasi founder who we consider our close friends.
Art Du Déplacement (ADD) has been further developed by four of the nine original Yamakasi founders – Chau Belle, Williams Belle, Yann Hnautra, and Laurent Piemontesi – and supported by Guylain Boyeke, practising ADD for more than 20 years to spread a culture of sharing, centred on wellbeing via mental and physical effort, and on values such as tradition, security, goodwill, universalism, autonomy, stimulation and success. The practice of ADD aims at the (re-)appropriation of one’s environment, via moving one’s body in respect of the environment, of nature, of other people and one’s surroundings. More than mere athletes, the founding Yamakasi have developed a state of mind in order to no longer be subjected to one’s environment, but rather (re-)learn to act and interact with it. This relationship with one’s environment being constant, the Yamakasi have developed a new way to move, closer to our primal functions reviving their instincts, practically wild. In this way Art Du Déplacement lays emphasis on the training and constitution of the human being. Indeed, the “modern” human body (and mind) no longer being adapted to a natural environment, it has been important for the Yamakasi founders to re-learn to use all the physical and functional capacities of their bodies.
