Creating a forest parkour scene in Smithers

Parkour as an art practiced in the wilderness could change young lives, according to Smithers practitioner Wyatt Chandler.

Wyatt Chandler has just returned from the 2016 North American Parkour Championships in Vancouver. While he did not qualify for his event, he is applying what he has learned to provide his students in the north a unique offering.  His approach to the art is a little different than that of his colleagues. He believes there is a place for ‘forest parkour’ in the north, especially for young people in communities across the region who may not have many resources, or ‘anything to do’.

Read about his ideas in the Sept. 28 edition of The Interior News.
