Parkour

Originally called the l’Art du Deplacement: ‘the Art of Displacement’. Parkour is an art of movement, a physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movements to the environment. Parkour derives from the French word parcours meaning ‘route’ or ‘course’.

CLASSES

Level 1 – ages 7-10 & 10-17 – (1 hour class) In this class, students will learn the foundations of parkour: coordination, balance, and spatial awareness. All that is needed to participate in the beginner class is a positive mindset and a willingness to learn. All of our exercises and skills are scalable, so we can customize them and easily challenge people on an individual basis. Students will gain self confidence, discipline, and awareness all while having fun in a safe environment.

Level 2 – ages 10-17 – (1 hour class) (Instructor Permission Required) Students will continue their parkour training with emphasis on conditioning, advanced techniques, and circuits.  The overall form of their movements will be critiqued and improved.  Students will be able to create new movement, adapt to unique environments, and link together basic skills in longer runs. Finally, students will gain a better understanding of Parkour’s origins and philosophies.

Level 3 – ages 15-17 – (1 hour class) (Instructor Permission Required) Students at this level have mastered the foundational elements of Parkour. Focus at this level is directed towards combinations and application of the sport. Athletes will use their accomplishments in the basics to start developing their own personal style and flow. Multiple elements linked together will mimic and prepare the athlete for the urban Parkour landscape. This class is also designed to give our athletes the ability and knowledge to start combining acrobatic elements to their combinations.
