now organise Parkour
workshops in Brasil which I make open to all levels of ability,
anyone with an interest in Parkour is welcome. I don't push

most traceurs, Luiz pursued a number of extreme sports before
finding Parkour in 2003.
He's an inline skater, skate boarder, climber, freediver, mountainbiker,
martial artist, surfer and anything else which helps him on
his course of personal development.
Luiz helped with establishing Brasil's National Parkour Association
and in December staged the first major Parkour JAM which attracted
people from all over Brasil.
In 2006 Luiz got more serious about Parkour, thanks to the inspiration
of the French masters, and admits that his skills have now risen
to a new level.
