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!

Ah! And it's FREE, in case you were wondering...

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

Fun session, the next time I see a playground I need to explore more ways of conditioning. I went home and watched for about the 6th time Parkour Pilgrimage and realized that.

Sorry I didn't go for Ice Cream. I ended up going to the Presidio/Crissy field under the bridge. for some solo training. Got some good training in for a little over an hour or so. See you next time..

Sorry to those who left early. The rain cleared and we played on the playground until 4. It was actually a lot of fun.

...In general, and for future reference too: if it's not "CANCELED", it's "ON".

I guess we better start calling this spot West Rainset...

Anyway: 10:00am observation and forecast
"it's cloudy but not rain clouds" (source: Jodie)
"rain chance between noon and 4:00pm is 0-5%" (source: weather.com)
