Jim Hougaard sees the world differently. When he sees a wall, he does not see something that blocks his path — he sees an opportunity. Rooftops are obstacles to jump across. Stairs are things to flip over. With Aarhus Parkour, Jim and his friends practice the art of parkour — the process of getting from point A to point B as fast as possible — and sometimes most creatively. But to some, Aarhus Parkour is not just a collection of backflipping maniacs — it provides an outlet to live without boundaries and foster a better lifestyle.
