Event Description

Summer vacations AND July 4th week-end should ensure some relaxed surveillance of this otherwise 'difficult' spot...

Otherwise we'll fall back on Lowell HS.

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

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...

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

Ha! And it's free, in case you were wondering...

...yeah, as Aero said.
We shall stretch warm up at the meeting point, while waiting and inconspicuously as possible (nobody coming from the roof as sometime lately, please...).

Then we'll jog/run to the first 'station'.
SFState regulars, please show us the ropes...

some cool tricks up by the science building that I want to get to early. And at the student center we normally end up skipping.

I gotta be out by 130-145. Let's do the fun stuff first I'm sick of the dorm spot we always live at ...
