So it turns out that when you see people in movies running up walls and jumping off buildings it is actually a thing and everyone can give it a go.
It is called Parkour and the idea is to get from one spot to another as fast and efficiently as possible. Having done a beginners class with Newcastle Parkour at the Movement Collective space in Wickham, I can honestly say I found it super challenging!!
Originally developed in France in the 1990s, Parkour allows an individual to develop a set of skills like running, jumping, rolling and vaulting that can be used in real life emergency situations.
