WORLD FREERUNNING PARKOUR FEDERATION
BECOME A CLUB
“WFPF is a global network of clubs and athletes dedicated to the safe and responsible advancement of parkour & freerunning throughout the world.”
“Through camaraderie, self-expression and service to others, there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome.”
Terhe Wilding Project is Australia’s first and ONLY WFPF Parkour Academy and that is a VERY big deal!
The Wilding Project, Perth is part of a global parkour and freerunning community. We have trained staff, ongoing coach training, standardised equipment and an awesome student development syllabus.
There are WFPF Parkour Academy’s in USA, Canada, Portugal, Mexico and The United Kingdom and we all share a few things in common:
Staff are trained by some of the world’s best coaches and athletes, and
Students follow a carefully structured syllabus.
We have eight colours of achievement in our training program that represent the developing athlete and the developing person within the sport of parkour and freerunning.
VENUE & EQUIPMENT
The parkour equipment we use is matched to our coaching syllabus and coach accreditation. It’s also the same equipment you will find in any WFPF club anywhere on the planet!
The Wilding Project strikes the right balance between safety and challenge. We have purpose-built soft foam obstacles for our WILDLINGS, ample safety matting and hard modular equipment for our Beginner to Advanced athletes. All of this allows TWP coaches to challenge the students in a safe, carefully structured and progressive learning environment.
We design it, build it, use it and recommend it!
For the first time in Australia the WFPF (World Freerunning Parkour Federation) is coming to Australian with some of it’s best coaches and athletes to teach … well, to teach anyone keen to learn!
The Wilding Project is Australia’s ONLY WFPF Parkour Academy, which means that we can train future WFPF coaches, teach the WFPF syllabus, mentor others to become a PARKOUR ACADEMY and sell WFPF equipment.

WHAT IS PARKOUR?
Or the question we are often asked by parents, “What are my kids talking about with this PACK-HOUR thing?”
We’re here to help!
The word “Parkour” comes from the French “parcours,” which literally means, “a course”, “a way through,” or “a path.”
What we know today as “Parkour” (with a “k”) had its origins in a training program designed for the French Special Forces known as “Parcours du combattant”, or “The Path of the Warrior.” It was David Belle, the son of a real life Parcours Warrior, who changed the “c” to a “k”, and with his comrades the Yamakazi created the worldwide movement we now call Parkour.
The strictest definition of Parkour is the act of moving from point “a” to point “b” using the obstacles in your path to increase your efficiency. With this as the goal of Parkour a repertoire of skills developed around the practice. Some of these skills are immediately obvious to many: the “tic-tac”, the “kong vault” and the “gap jump”.
But a funny thing happened along the way between Point ‘A’ and ‘B’ few cool, super-creative, Yamakazi. They started expressing themselves through movement.
This self-expressive form of Parkour was led by a name named Sebastian Foucan, the guy from the CASINO ROYALE film! Over time two sports emerged: Parkour and the expressive tricking form of parkour now called Freerunning.
People argue to this day argue about which was first and which is better, but while those people argue, places like The Wilding Project think it’s all important, it’s all amazingly wonderful for our bodies and so we teach both.
Hope this helps!
