Zack Smithson of Stockton in the UK suffers from Aspergers syndrome and Dyspraxia. Dyspraxia is a disorder in fine motor skill development. People who suffer from it may have trouble speaking, riding bikes, or even things as simple as walking. Needless to say when the boy said he wanted to try Parkour doctors said it couldn't be done.
It’s common for people who suffer from Aspergers to go through phases and it was assumed free running was just another temporary obsession. Even Zach himself thought this would be a temporary hobby.
“Even I thought free running would be just another phase, but now I’m doing shows and I’m so much more confident."
“It just shows that people should look at ability, not the disability. Free running really has changed my life.
Zach is now enrolled in dance classes his instructor Mattie Campbell said his first impressions of Zack were that he was “very quiet, lacked confidence but seemed like he was up for a challenge”.
“Although Zack had problems with certain parts of the sessions, he seemed to be really genuinely interested in the techniques"
Zach now plans on to continue performing and training.
When we go out to train we have to push our bodies but normally we have to fight our mind. Zach had to push past things everyone though would be literally impossible for his body to do to get to this level.
