Event Description

Check here for RIDES.

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...

Fall back location -for any events that forces us to leave the premises- remains West Sunset Community Center, a 5' drive away... but if you get there and can't see us, check the sport field and both of its sidestairs before making assumptions...

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

Hey, can I bum a ride off of anyone tomorrow? I'm in Berkeley, if anyone is going through that area. Thanks!

I say we start at GWHS and move ON PURPOSE at like 2:30 to the sunset center. That place misses us.

either way....im coming.

Been too long since I've trained with you guys. Busy on Saturday, but I'll try to come out to this one; I'd love to help out and there's a lot of things left for me to learn too. Especially conditioning, blech.
