Roger Widmer, ParkourONE, Gründer und Geschäftsführer
‘Parkour, Urbane Fortbewegungskunst’

ROGER WIDMER, born in 1981, lives in Münsingen (BE) is Parkour pioneer, teacher of design and art, adult educator and goldsmith. The teaching concept 'TRuST' sets milestones in the development of Parkour, a mode of free movement through urban space and landscape whose goal is to get efficiently as possible from A to B only with the abilities of one's own body. The parkour runner determines his own way through urban or natural space - in a different way than architecture and culture dictate. At the ParkourONE Academy Widmer leads the first institution worldwide where Parkour is taught, researched and developed with the holistic approach. Since 2006, as director of the ParkourONE Academy and his team, he has been working tirelessly on the holistic understanding of Parkour. Parkour TRuST serves as a tool of personality development, strengthening of value, health and intangible wealth.
