Ali Kadhim reveals the importance of self-belief, trusting in our ability to make change, and the principles of viewing obstacles as opportunities through understanding the Art of Parkour. He is founder of Team 9Lives and devoted practitioner to Parkour, Free Running since age 16 and Martial Arts since age 12. He is self-taught in Parkour and filmmaking, his two main forms of expression. Ali specialises in directing, cinematography and editing, combining fast camera skills, choreographed movement and cinematic visuals to tell stories and connect with audiences.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
