Sebastien Foucan Biography

Sébastien Foucan is the founder and global ambassador for Freerunning.  An inspiring and motivational speaker, Sébastien is an international personality. He also starred in Dancing on Ice on ITV.

The discipline of Freerunning originated in Lisses, France, when a young Sébastien and a small group of friends developed the concept of combining movement with their urban environment in a unique, challenging and aesthetically beautiful way. Influenced by martial arts, the philosophy behind Freerunning is to unify body, spirit and environment. Freerunning’s origins come from the natural methods of Georges Herbert (a French marine officer) which is where the relationship with Parkour also stems from.

The discipline of Freerunning originated in Lisses, France, when a young Sébastien and a small group of friends developed the concept of combining movement with their urban environment in a unique, challenging and aesthetically beautiful way. Influenced by martial arts, the philosophy behind Freerunning is to unify body, spirit and environment. Freerunning’s origins come from the natural methods of Georges Herbert (a French marine officer) which is where the relationship with Parkour also stems from.

A deeply personal discipline, Sébastien has developed a philosophy behind the sport, encouraging participants to challenge themselves, as opposed to focussing on competition against others.

Sébastien came to prominence outside his native France after the showing of Mike Christie's ‘Jump London’ documentary in the UK on Channel 4 in September 2003, and the subsequent documentary ‘Jump Britain’. In addition to these factual programmes, Sébastien has added prestigious acting credits to his CV, and appears as “Mollaka”, in the 21st James Bond film, ‘Casino Royale’. Sébastien has also toured with Madonna as a performer in her show, ‘Confessions on a Dance floor’. The tour ran for 109 days and was sold out at all 55 venues across 8 countries. The James Bond film and the Madonna tour have given Sébastien a global following and will allow him to further develop Freerunning.

Sebastien practices yoga and is also an artist, he has produced a number of oil paintings he intends to share and display one day.
