Despite being only 19 years old, Michael Khedoori has committed himself to a life evangelising parkour and movement. A professional traceur out of Sydney, Australia, “The Kid” specialises in speed and agility. He competes in both nationwide and international competitions as well as teaches all ages at the AAPES (Australian Academy for Parkour and Extreme Self-Defense) gym where he first discovered his love for the sport.
Parkour has also taken Michael into the realm of television: he played a high-stakes form of tag on 2021 Australian game show Ultimate Tag, where he and fellow traceurs would attempt to catch contestants making their way through various obstacle courses.
Michael unites athleticism with artistry through filming his extreme parkour feats and sharing them on social platforms where he has amassed a faithful and engaged following (2.1 million on Tiktok). His rising influence as well as the growth of non-traditional sports like parkour among the youth makes him the ideal Pho3nix Team ambassador to encourage them to get outside and move.
