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!

Decided against coming. During today's jam in Saratoga I came to the realization that my right shin isn't healing on its own, and I should do something about it. I'll try for next week with Fyrel and gang.

Right, and in a real world escape and evade situation, as soon as they start catching up to you they'll be sucker punched by the smell. :D
