Movement and strength in its many forms and manifestations is beautiful. Opposing qualities of movement, the push and pull, rise and fall, the advance and the retreat, are equally important because of the balance that they bring to each other. Neither quality can be more important as both bring each other into balance. In the same way, the diversity of the female experience is beautiful and amazing in the richness of experience it can bring to us. While parkour is relatively young, the emergence of the traceuse community is newer still. As such, everything we do now has an effect on someone else, like a ripple moving on the surface of a pond. What we invest in our present will benefit others who will come after us. If we act now, we will reap the future benefits in untold ways. We need to move and think purposefully, fully realizing that what we do now affects our present and our future. As an individual our ability for change is small but as a community our abilities are increased manifold.

And this is what girlparkour is, a community. We are extremely fortunate and grateful that women and men from all over the world have come forward to contribute as we cannot achieve what we hope without them. Bringing together women of all nationalities, ages and walks of life means that we have many minds and many unique voices. Regardless of the physical distance between continents and language differences, one person’s experience can spark off inspiration and new ideas in another, no matter how far apart they are. The website rather than being the efforts of a few, is an embodiment of the collective thoughts and efforts of the many traceuses and traceurs who contribute to it. First and foremost, girlparkour is a global community, a collective effort worldwide, beginning with representation by traceuse communities all over the world. And as a whole community, we will reap the rewards that will come with it.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this site as we could not have done it without you. So to all, much love, respect, best wishes..and happy training!
