Parkour is the physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one's path by adapting one's movements to the environment.
- Parkour requires... consistent, disciplined training with an emphasis on functional strength, physical conditioning, balance, creativity, fluidity, control, coordination, precision, spatial awareness, and looking beyond the traditional use of objects.
- Parkour movements typically include... running, jumping, vaulting, climbing, balancing, and quadrupedal movement. Movements from other physical disciplines are often incorporated, but acrobatics or tricking alone do not constitute parkour.
- Parkour training focuses on... safety, longevity, personal responsibility, and self-improvement. It discourages reckless behavior, showing off, and dangerous stunts.
- Parkour practitioners value... community, humility, positive collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and the importance of play in human life, while demonstrating respect for all people, places, and spaces.
Beginner Classes (ages 8+):
These classes focus on basic human movement. They start with kicking your butt into shape and getting to know where your limits are and how we can start to safely expand them. This class drills safety aspects of Parkour (proper landing technique, rolls, flexibility and strength) basic vaulting used in efficiency drills, and using the trampoline to develop a spatial awareness and controlling ourselves in a 3D environmental. This class is used for your first foray into sports, or if you're ages 7-12 and just want a starter class.
Intermediate Classes (ages 12+):
The intermediate classes start expanding upon the skills we develop in the beginner classes, and start adding on additional training on our outdoor Parkour course. Here we start to experiment with wall elements, bars and start working our tumbling skills. This class is perfect is you've had over a year in beginner Parkour, have had prior training or are a bit older than the ages for beginner Parkour.
Advanced Classes classes (ages 12+):
The advanced classes are an invitational only class. In the advanced classes we head into the city and train primarily on the Parkour park to start honing our reflexes and flow by training series of combinations instead of sole tricks. Advanced parkour technique and free running techniques are applied here for creativity and precision.
