Freerunning Find Your Way
A book written by the talented Sébastien Foucan who founded freerunning. Foucan played Mollaka in the hugely successful James Bond film Casino Royale (2006) performing his skills to the fullest.

Freerunning is the cultural phenomenon that exploded into the public's consciousness with Mike Christie's Channel 4 documentaries Jump London and Jump Britain. In Freerunning: Find Your Way, Sébastien Foucan, the founder of the art, shares his philosophies and shows that the values behind freerunning can be applied to your daily life. With electrifying photography of Sébastien in action, this book is packed with inspirational ideas to help you find your true path and get the most out of your life.

About the author:
Foucan developed the discipline Parkour (also known as Free Running) with his friend David Belle, to combat negative energy. He has created and given names to many of the trademark Parkour moves, now used throughout the movement, which is becoming increasingly well known and respected as an extreme sport worldwide. However, for Foucan, Parkour is not a sport; it is primarily an art form.

Foucan became known to a wide audience when the documentaries “Jump London” and “Jump Britain” began to be aired around the world, and he is now regarded as the ambassador for the Free Running movement. In late 2006, Discovery Channel broadcasted the French segment of their international series “HD Atlas,” which is entirely devoted to Parkour, with commentary by Foucan.

He has appeared in numerous television commercials including Nike and Toyota, as well as in Madonna’s video for her hit single “Confessions on the Dancefloor.” He was then invited to accompany her on her 2006 international stage tour “Confessions.”

Foucan’s philosophy is “No violence, no competition, no groups, no chiefs.”
