What is Parkour?
Parkour is an up and coming sport that is gaining popularity. Often associated with ninjas, American Ninja warrior and much more, parkour or sometimes called freerunning, is an art of movement that takes in many other movement types. Parkour is many things to many people, to some it’s getting through your environment in the quickest and most efficient way possible, using only your body; this may mean running up walls, vaulting, jumping gaps and distances, climbing, etc… your imagination is the limit! To others, it is a way of life, a self expression through movement. Parkour might sound rough on the body, but research has shown the ways we teach you to land and roll and spread impact is highly beneficial for overall movement and when performed properly is less damaging than sports like gymnastics. This is what we are certified to teach you.
What are classes like?
These classes are unique. We currently have 6 levels of training, starting from level 1 in our classes, boys and girls are trained in the basics of parkour movement (the fundamentals): rolling, safe landing techniques, basic vaults, basic wall runs, simply, the foundation for the movements but especially in learning to move safely. They also get a great physical education; we teach them about muscles, how they work, how to use them properly with different motion, and how different parts of your body work together with physics to make movement work. As for skills and other beneficial things: we teach them how to flip, fall safety, injury prevention, proper stretching and many skills that are useful in every day life through fun games, activities, and careful training. This is a class boys and young men are sure to love, and girls love it too! if you think this class would be great for you, or your child, or perhaps your child already runs up walls at home, bring them in and try it out! The First class is always FREE!
