Session description:
This training provides a healthy atmosphere for new practitioners to start parkour, and for everyone to advance in a safe way. This is achieved in several ways. Because safety is paramount, a positive example is set by the more experienced practitioners. This means you will always see warm ups, stretching, and slow progression of movement. It also means there will be no showing off, which leads to copy-cat behavior and subsequently injuries. Rather, people pass on knowledge humbly in a group effort to advance. While there may be several different skill levels represented at these sessions, everyone keeps a beginner mentality.

Another key aspect in this beginner atmosphere is the absence of media. There are no camera crews or reporters to get in the way or cause people to feel self-conscious. While individuals may bring cameras, they should politely ask before filming/shooting anyone other than themselves.

The perception that parkour practice is (and should be) fun, yet being "a discipline, not a game", is set from the beginning. While the atmosphere is relaxed and can be playful at times, horseplay is discouraged, and teasing, mocking, and cliquish behaviors are not tolerated...

Basic/beginners training provided, but ALL LEVELS present and WELCOME!

Minors and Newcomers pls. check this frequently asked questions about liability. =)

@SafeNSure. I think I'll consider that the next group session I attend. I'll break off by myself so I can have the best of both solo and group training. :)

@hillexallen. I'm training alone until I lose my dependency on group sessions, it's a matter of discipline, since everytime I come to Sunday's I end up watching other people half the time. I assure I'll be back though, I do miss the sessions already.And I've never trained alone really. I would say 10% of the time I have, but I want it to be the majority of the time, since that is when most progress is made in my opinion. I'll join you guys once I've gained a solid foundation of independence. Thanks for your concern you guys ^^. And showing off would violate the "stay humble" part of our PK motto now wouldn't it?

...don't know that "show[ing] off [his] stuff" was in Gene's plans.

I agree with Jason that "training solo allows you to focus completely on your body movements and thoughts", I often take off by myself even at the group session... and then, typically, I involve someone else for "tips and advice"... in three hours there should be time for everything...

Yeah, you don't need to progress by yourself so you can "show off your stuff" at the Sunday session. Just come out and learn! Hope to see you at the next one!

I'm going to train independantly until I've made some progress before going to another sunday session.

I might drop in for a little while. My ankle is feeling better, finally, so I'll practice a little.

I will attend this for the first hour, for some training, then head over to the monthly, hopefully with Kirill.
