Overcome is a Parkour Generations outreach and social responsibility initiative that utilises the incredibly powerful vehicle of parkour movement training to help people overcome obstacles in their lives, be they physical, mental, social or indeed anything that hinders or impedes a full life for that individual.
Obstacles come in all shapes and sizes; life isn’t predictable or uniform or smooth, it’s wild, organic, and can seem like very hard going for many people. But it isn’t the terrain or the obstacles that are the problem – it’s our perspective.
The philosophy of parkour is to see obstacles as opportunities for adaptation and improvement, to find a way through any terrain, and to embrace adversity as the vital catalyst for our own growth and self-mastery: to OVERCOME! Parkour teaches us to face what is, not what we would like or expect, and to work with that to create a positive, progressive and powerful outcome.
There is always a solution, if only we view difficulties from the right perspective.
Overcome is the application of that ultimately practical philosophy to any difficult, challenging or potentially adverse scenario in order to find a way forwards to reach a positive outcome for all involved.
The obstacle truly IS the way.
